The Hungries

Friday, March 08, 2013

Today I weighed myself. I weigh 217...down 2.5 pounds from the other day....so the scale is going in the right direction once again. I won't be satisfied though until I"m back down at 211 like I was a week or two ago. However, today that just seems unlikely. I'm HUNGRY today. I woke at four o'clock and just HAD to make breakfast then. Then of course by 10:30 I needed an English muffin. Half a pita and tuna for lunch....and at 3:00 crackers and cheese. I guess it's not terrible but it does seem like I"ve done a lot of eating today.

For dinner I'm making smoked tofu stirfry and brown rice....I can't wait for dinner. Maybe we will eat a little early....like 5:00.

YOu see? The hungries.
How will I lose weight like this? I need to munch on some veggies instead of crackers and cheese for one thing And I would have too....if I'd remembered those baby carrots in the fridge. I should do a drawing of some lonely forlorn veggies and stick it on my refrigerator. That would remind me not to neglect them. I think I will do that. Besides, it sounds like fun.

I've still been knitting and knitting and knitting. My daughter's shawl is coming along nicely....I'm hoping to have it done by Tuesday so I can block it at my friend's house that day. I just unpinned the hand towel I'd blocked and it came out lovely. Blocking really is worth the extra time.

So that's it ....the story of my life: Knitting and eating. Fortunately not at the same time so knitting keeps my fingers out of the proverbial cookie jar. Whatever works, right?

    Hang in there, there are some days I eat alot too. Just keep watching what goes in is healthy and your good to go.. I eat alot of raw cauliflower and veggies that take ages to burn off- they are my hungry tummy day lifesavers..

    I have a tendency to keep my hands busy as well. I ate a large carrot while I was walking today and I realized the carrot made my mouth REALLY dry. No idea why this is, but it was hard to swallow it even when I chugged water. Maybe that's not such a good idea for me and I should leave the carrots to getting the skin off - I eat the skin too - and maybe that will help. But the eating of the carrot keeps me from pinching off the ends of branches that get near me. I am running out of things to break off, so keeping my hands busy is a necessity.

    I just wish I had to desire to write again so I could keep my fingers on the keyboard and out of the cigarettes. I have picked up smoking again but will be quit again by the end of the month. I am using them right now as a distraction from stress-eating. And boy do I have STRESS!

    Your on track.

    I had 1/2 big apple sliced that I dipped in all natural peanut butter...

    twice last night...

    This really helped my snacking.

    2 pieces of fake bacon finished it off.

    under 600 calories last night eating (compared to normally 2000 lol)

    Sounds great! Not sure what this blocking is for, but it would be nice if you share a photo of your finished work! That is fantastic you can keep busy doing something that is absorbing you, but do give your hands a rest and do other things like reading or something else to take your mind off food.
    Keep up the great work!

    Well, my dear buddy, something must be working right since you've lost 2#! emoticon emoticon I just got done putting my SP collage on the fridge from being on the door by the computer all this time. Hopefully, that will be a clue to get only healthy things for snacking! I have carrots in the fridge too! I just made myself a yummy bowl of fresh strawberries with a tad of sugar and that tasted so good! Alot of it is planning and I'm so bad at it, but i tend to get alot better! emoticon
