This past week was a rough one for the “diet.” A friend of mine had his birthday on Tuesday, so I treated him to lunch and Wednesday was Benihana day. Oh, and not to mention Aunt Flo decided to come and visit for the week. On Tuesday, after lunch, I felt absolutely awful. I ate so much (even though it was a fraction of what I used to eat as the “norm.”) I was ill for the rest of the evening.
Wednesday, I did better (I ate only 1/3 of the Benihana lunch) but still felt sick to my stomach for most of the day.
Today, Thursday (November 18th,) I feel SOOO much better. I had a small breakfast, coffee when I got to work and a half of a tuna sandwich for lunch. I will have my apple or carrots in a couple of hours and maybe another before I go home for the day.
What’s my point? I think my stomach is shrinking! So when I overindulge, I am MISERABLE. I have to keep this in mind next week on Turkey-Day!
I really attribute my lower cholesterol to the fact that I’m not eating as much. I am still eating what I like to eat, but not nearly the quantity. And do you know what else I have noticed that this has helped? Not only am I now in control of my eating habbits, but I feel like I am more in control with the organization at home and finances! It’s funny how these completely different things have gone hand-in-hand.
