Hello to you!!!
Hope you're having a wonderful Sunday.
Today's Menu Plan, estimates:
Breakfast: 1 egg, 3/4 tbs oil, 1 lite wheat toast plain, 1 banana, 300.
Lunch Buffet at Golden Corral Restuarant with Hubby: 3/4 baked sweet potato, 1 yeast roll, 1/2 container honey butter, 1/4 small piece cheese pizza, 1 very small salad, 1/2 cup vanilla soft serve ice cream, 1 tbs choc icing, 1 very small hushpuppy, approx. 700 calories.
Snack: 2 very small pieces of Russell Stover chocolate candy(yes I got a small 4-pc. box for 99 cents at Walgreens), 130.
Snack: 2 cups watermelon, 100. See 'Who Would've THUNK it????' below.
Supper: 1 small cheese pizza, 410.
Snack: Will be refreshments at birthday party at church, but I will try to just mainly 'sample' them, if ya know what I mean, hehe. (Back from church now...I had 2 tiny fried chicken legs (from wings), a few tiny pieces of fruit, a few peanuts and potato chips, and about 1/3 pimento cheese sandwich, about 350 calories.
Late Snack: Fatfree chocolate fudge cycle, 100.
As always, LOTS of water!
Who Would've THUNK it???? I actually enjoyed the watermelon this afternoon, which has become a big part of what I eat regularly now, MORE than ANY of the above!!! Watermelon is sweet, high in fiber, low in cals and fat, VERY FILLING, and I like it! I enjoyed it more than the ice cream, the chocolates, the sweet potato, the honey-buttered hot yeast roll, etc. I also feel very good eating it, cause I know it's not fattening, and I can only eat just so much of it (usually about 2 cups) and I'm full.
Total Cals for today: 2040 ...(estimated)....I banked some cals yesterday (Only had estimated 970 total yesterday) for today.
Note: I was very 'business-like' with eating at the buffet restuarant today. Each time I tasted something, I silently asked myself how it tasted and if I REALLY wanted to eat it....I realized I wanted to eat for COMFORT, not for the taste of the food, so I wouldn't allow myself to do that. I also realized that because so many people were around me eating in what seemed 'wild abandon' (hehehe!!!) that I felt like I was 'SUPPOSED' to eat a lot. I tasted a few things but the flavor was bland, so I didn't eat but a tiny amount of a few things I didn't write in lunch, (steak, fried chicken, carrot cake, corn, mashed potatoes and gravy), but I did include the small calorie count for them in the lunch calories.
I have been at goalweight before. I was at 205 in 1998. I lost about 50 lbs in a year. After that, I got down to 150 which was my goalweight and mostly stayed at 150 goalweight for approximately 6 years, up until last fall/winter of 2005, give or take a few on either side. I even got down as low as 132 one time, which was much too low for me at my height, 5'8" and medium build...so I regained. I thought about making 150 my goalweight this time, but I decided that 155 and size 12 was fine. Anyway, I was Maria7 on here before if you want to check that journal out. I started that journal here in December, 2000. I lost my password one day and couldn't get on DD and wasn't sucessful in making contact with the one over DD at that time, so I became Maria 777 that you know now.
Have a good day!
Remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I!
Love, Maria (smile!)
Progress as of today: 14.5 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!
