My husband told me that he thinks it would be best for me to eat normal for a week while food journaling so that I can see how much I eat and what I need to maintain my weight. I think he's right. I mean, I can just go by what Spark thinks I eat, but I'm a weird girl in a lot of ways so it's better to find out first. That way, I know how much I need to reduce my calories to.
So this week I'm trying to eat normally. I can't help feeling bad about what I'm writing down though. Yesterday I ate close to 2200 calories. Of course, the house is full of sweets from Valentines day and I hate letting them go to waste, so I'm trying to eat them as quickly as possible. There's cupcakes and lime bars and chocolates.
The funny thing about me is that I think, "I need to eat this junk food so that it's out of the house," but once it's gone, I buy more! So maybe I should just take it easy, not worry about it being in the house and just eat it when I really want it.
I really envy my husband though. He's not addicted to food like me, so when I noticed he was gaining weight, I just sent him to work with less food and cut his dinner portions down, and it didn't bother him in the least. I wish I could have someone lording over my food like that. I bet it would make it so much more easy to lose! I mean, Chad lost 30 pounds when I moved in with him because I cook so much better than he does. He's super skinny now, 6'5 and 185 pounds. I want to be skinny and sexy for him too.
