I know I am not the typical success story, but I feel successful.
We decided to order breakfast. I looked at the Omelette with fruits but ordered a breakfast burger with fries instead. I enjoyed every bite. I never had one before, it was a hit. Early in the afternoon, I recycled 3 leftover birthday cupcakes. They didn't tempt me when they were fresh, today they were mine. I ate all three of them.
I have lost 18.5 pounds in 29 days. I am still in the 300's. I have bought a new bathroom scale and I weigh and log my food faithfully with the new digital food scale. 1 Burger and 3 Cupcakes already in the afternoon. What a day. Normally I would continue eating like this for the rest of the day. Not today. I started logging my food 30 minutes ago. No cheating. I eat it, I log it.
The burger was not in the database. I had to look up the nutrition. 1120 calories. That's a lot but it happened. It's now in the database and everybody can find it.
The 3 cupcakes were cheaper. Do you know what else I did? I closed my diary for today. No dinner for me. The short ribs in the slow cooker and the coleslaw are my lunch for tomorrow. Already told my husband. I am full now it's time to stop. I am learning!
I am honest with myself now. Oh, and I walked 1123 steps yesterday. 600 more than the day before. I bought the cheapest fitness watch I could find. The steps almost killed me. I bragged about it in the evening. I don't want to be housebound. I will fight hard. I have a fitness watch only for babysteps.
