Well I’m going to confess…this Wednesday I REALLY wanted to see 166 being that last week I was 167.4. What did I see? 167.8. No biggie, right? Sure. However, what did I do that day? Start sabotaging myself of course.
Ever since I started school again I am RAVENOUS all.the.time! Now I am drinking 96+oz of water and eating 86g of protein (my recommended amount according to MFP) and yet I want to eat anything in my path. I try to contain myself but once the water is down and I’ve downed the water and my protein I am convinced I’m hungry, but the problem is that I still make bad decisions on what to eat. Last night I debated with myself for ten minutes about making ranch dip. I knew it was a bad idea. I knew I would eat too much, but I did it anyways and what did I do? I ate WAY too much. But I logged it. Then I whined about it.
Today I came home and made boneless buffalo wings which wasn’t so bad, but then I had to have some more chips and dip. It’s going to go bad, right? I can’t be wasteful. right? But this time I tried to be a bit smarter. I didn’t sit down with the chip bag and the bowl of dip. I put two tablespoons of dip on my plate and a handful of chips and ended it there. So I felt a bit better about that. Then I did an hour of DDR, I really want to see 166 on the scale. REALLY. I gotta get control of myself!
Now on another note today I went live on Susan Today. I did a guest blog on my journey as a food addict. I use the word heavily and I hope it does not offend anyone. No, I am not truly a food addict, but I LOVE food. I was raised to center my life around food and now at the age of 22 I have to re-learn everything I’ve ever known.

Until next time!
