Well, there isn't too much to say about it today. I ate too much food and I went over the calorie limit. I need to stop the cycle and do something about it.

I love my protein. I admit that I eat whatever is available so I need to make healthier choices. The ice cream was not healthy, I admit. I wonder if I ate too much protein today. I have to be more conscious of the choices I make and to exercise more. I feel like I have lost weight today even though I ate more than 2000 calories today. I do wish that I could learn to eat better. I have consumed sugary drinks lately and that is not a good thing. However, I can learn from my food and drink mistakes.

I need to rid myself of some bad habits, but I believe that I have done well today. I didn't overeat. Nor did I rob myself of anything. I actually ate something healthy for a change. I have to outdo the processed foods and the sugary drinks. I hope to do better tomorrow.

Yesterday, I wrote about slow weight loss. I guess that it means that I will have to be patient. Low and slow is the way to go. However, I will weigh myself tomorrow. I hope that I will be out of the 280 pound mark. I have been there long enough. I realize that I also eat too much at one time or at least in one sitting. I rarely if ever go for seconds which is a good thing.

I have eaten more in moderation than before. I have a long way to go. However, I am learning. I ate two Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches. It is not too big a deal except the sandwiches take up a lot of calories. I have not given God the glory or total control over my eating and overall dieting habits. I thought I did, but I admit that I have not. I say this because of my eating habits and also because I am so frustrated. I have however, ate snacks in moderation. Not bad. Not bad at all.

I will have to be careful with how I eat because of my health. I am not always careful and I am not always proud of myself when I eat. I am grateful for the 25-30 pounds that I have lost so far. I only want to do well for myself. I am doing well for myself but the problem is I felt that I was losing weight too slowly. Maybe I am not. Maybe it was one of those cases where I need to examine myself and where I am really going.

I feel pretty good about what I ate today. However, I did eat way too much cereal as far as snacks go. I am addicted to eating cereal it seems. I could have added sugar to the cereal, but I did not, which was a smart thing to do. Sugar carries extra calories and that is not good for me. I am doing better today when it comes to how I eat. I still need to work on eating in moderation however.

I am doing okay. I have nothing to feel bad about. I just would like to actually eat in moderation. I am not too sure how. Maybe if I know what it means to eat in moderation, then maybe I would actually do it. That is what I have to do, just do it. Eating in moderation is a very important thing because I am a diabetic. I believe that I ate in moderation today. However, I know about eating the wrong kinds of foods not in moderation, but in excess.

I don't do this very often, but I am looking at the foods that I have eaten. I have eaten too small a breakfast and too much in snacks. I did well during lunch and dinner. I ate a hearty homemade chicken dumpling soup. Hearty doesn't always mean fattening, but in this case, it might have been. The problem is I ate too many chips. I realize that I ate too much of the bad stuff. It isn't good that I ate the wrong kinds of foods and eat the right kinds of foods like fruits, grains, and vegetables. I need to learn to eat in moderation. As a diabetic, I should now know better. And now I do.

I have learned not to just "deal" with a problem. I have learned to solve the problem. I have learned not to be anxious about food. I still have questions, but I have a few issues that I feel have been solved. However, they are only solved when I take action.

I will not give up. I have not given up. I am still here. Overall, I didn't eat much food, but I went over my 2220 calorie limit. I am not stressed out about it. I should have done a better job measuring out my food. I did eat a lot of food. Measuring out food and such has now been ingrained just like calorie count. I was obsessed with losing weight. I will weigh myself soon. I have no real weight goals since I don't know how much I want to weigh. I have too many shifted goals so my approach has been unstable. Right now I am a 2220 calorie limit. I hope to lose some weight, no matter how small, with this weight limit.

I have eaten more than I should have today. However, I did eat healthy. Today taught me one thing and that is that I have a wrong view of food. I have a love relationship with food yet it seems that it doesn't love me back. I have a condition in which losing weight would be harder for me than for most women. That combined with my view of food should spell weight gain due to giving up. But I have hope on my side. I will not give up.

I need help with self-control and possible binge of food. I haven't gone over the 2100 calorie limit. I would now like to lose 20lbs, but it may take me a while. I would like to lose at least 82 pounds. I will feel so much better about myself and my health. I am not sure where else I need to begin except for the fact that I am glad that I lost 29 lbs. I ate pretty well with 3 servings of fruits. I do need to eat more vegetables and whole grain. Maybe I should start a diet plan. Maybe I should try and make recipes. Who knows? It could be the best thing that could happen to my health.

I ate homemade cheeseburger and macaroni with a hint of barbecue sauce. That isn't the main problem I had today. My main problem is that I ate more in snacks than I did in meals, at least about an hour ago. I need to take my diet more seriously. I don't joke about it because it isn't funny. I mean that I need to be more conscious of what I eat. I practice mindless eating sometimes and I am not proud of it. I need to take more control of what I eat and to be mindful of what I eat. I didn't record the extra food that I ate because I take no pride in what I ate. I wish I could go back and change what I ate.
Sunday, August 11, 2013
I ate way too much during the course of a day. I ate more than 3100 calories even though I have now a 2200 calorie limit. Maybe I should lower it to 2000 calories. Less calories consumed and more calories burned means faster weight loss. I just have issues with eating smaller portions. I ate way too much early in the day. I also ate too much during lunch as well. Other than that, I don't feel guilty.

I have to make changes when it comes to my eating habits. I lack self-control and I don't know why. I need to learn about self control if I wish to continue to lose weight. I admit that I do eat a lot of unhealthy food. I am trying too hard I guess. I love to eat and maybe that is a problem. I lack self-control in all areas of my life and that is not a good thing. I don't each that much but when I do, I feel guilty afterwards. Pro-activity and consistency are the keys as well as a healthy diet, exercise, and a strong and willing mindset.

I have done well today. I did eat more than one burger and one piece of toast, however. I wish to binge today yet I don't want to. I need help. I know I need to. I feel so bad about that. How do I overcome binge eating? Why do I lack self-control?
Wednesday, August 7, 2013
I tried so hard, but I ate 4 gorditas and a host of other foods today. I also don't feel so good about that. I should be feeling worse, as in guilty. Maybe if I were to feel guilty, then I could use that guilt to not binge eat. I binged today and I hope that I don't binge tomorrow.
Tuesday, August 6, 2013
I lost a little bit of weight and that makes me smile. What else makes me smile is the fact that I did not binge eat today. I feel pretty good because I have nothing to feel guilty about. I admit to not always eating in moderation, but I do admit that I am doing better, and I feel good about that.

I am not out of the woods yet, but I am getting better. Honestly, I consumed more than 2000 calories today. I am not feeling guilty about it. I have learned to drink more water, exercise, and space out my meals. Whenever I go to the store, I tend to overeat and that is a problem that I have to work on.
Sunday, August 4, 2013
How do I overcome binge eating or gluttony? I overcame it once and I believe that I can overcome it again. I did not go under the 2000 calorie limit. I don't feel good about overeating. I wish that I could go back and change things. Sadly, I don't have that kind of power. I have to weigh myself tomorrow. I hope that all will go well as far as not giving in to eating too much.

I am concerned about the amount of calories I have consumed. I ate two wraps with meat, olives, mushrooms, and salsa. I should have eaten just one for lunch. I am happy to have consumed less than 2000 calories, yet I will learn to eat more in moderation. Laying off of the pound cake and ice cream would also help. I should only eat one slice a day of cake and ice cream. That is one of my favorite desserts. I just love ice cream especially and don't always eat in moderation. My breakfast was good but I should have eaten a healthy dinner in place of the dessert. However the dessert was all that I ate and plan to eat. I feel okay about what I ate today.
Friday, August 2, 2013
I surprise myself. I am still under the calorie limit, yet it seems that I have overeaten today. I lost a few pounds and I am proud of myself for losing weight. I am also proud of myself for eating under the calorie limit. I am just proud, yet I went overboard on the chips.
Thursday, August 1, 2013
I have eaten fruits and vegetables today, which is good. I baked another pound cake early this morning and this time it is lighter because I added coconut oil, so the cake doesn't have much butter in it. It was quite moist and thus quite good. It wasn't overly sweet and I ate maybe a couple of slices too much. I also ate leftovers for lunch. The portions were healthier which was good. I also make it a point to drink a lot of water, as I did with more than 8 cups today. For dinner, I ate soup from Progresso, which is a light soup. I have learned to eat whatever food I consume in smaller portions. I feel no guilt in eating the food I ate today. However, I still struggle with sweets and carbs and eating in moderation sometimes.
