I Almost Ate A Waffle!



Recommended Posts

What the hell was I thinking?! You can shout it too, it's okay. I deserve it.

Yesterday it was a beautiful, warm day full of sunshine and such. I stayed outside as much as possible with my puppy and we enjoyed NOT focusing on things like loneliness, an empty house, and food temptations.

Today it is a typical Pittsburgh day. Cold, grey, and it's raining. I'm feeling the emptiness of the house even with the puppy napping peacefully. All I want is comfort. And wouldn't you know, I reached for that damned box of waffles that has been in the freezer for over six months. (Can we say Eww?!)

I toasted one waffle, measured one serving of low-calorie butter substitute and .25 serving of Syrup before it hit me that I was eating for comfort. A waffle with butter and syrup would make me so ill and offers no nutritional value-WTH?!

So, I tossed it all into the outside garbage bin. The box of waffles from the freezer and the syrup went as well- just for good measure. I'm still lonely and the weather is still crappy but at least my insane addiction didn't win this time, so it's a victory I'll happily claim. :)

VICTORY!!!!! Pre sleeve you wouldn't have even thought about it till after it was already eaten. Then if you were anything like me, you'd get depressed that you screwed up again and rationalized that since you already screwed up you might as well eat another one. Congratulations!!

Funny how I can eat two waffles with Peanut Butter . I don't feel bad about it' date=' again it's exactly what I need when I got my low blood sugar.[/quote']

You eat the Omega 3 grain variety of eggo? I am sure that these with SF Syrup (or peanut butter) would not be too bad for you given your sleeve can handle it.

Thanks all! The offending waffles were just the standard Eggo Buttermilk variety, purchased before I'd been diagnosed as having Celiac's disease and various other grain allergies/sensitivities. So they would have been a nightmare. Truly, I don't miss things like this normally. I didn't even know they made a healthier variety of frozen waffle now!

Props on being able to leggo that eggo, girl! Funny how even when you were doing that, you still measured everything out like a good sleeved girl. ;)

Yay for your self control! What a victory!!! I usually curb cravings by logging them first on MFP. Nine times out of ten I won't eat it but every now and then I think its worth it, but its a decision I make mindfully and usually tailor the rest of my day around it. That being said I eat the eggo Protein waffles sometimes with Mrs. Butterworths sugar free Syrup :)

I bought some special k red berry Protein waffles. I cut it in half and spread just a tad of SF strawberry jam on it...was pretty tasty. My family came to visit and I made them regular waffles for them and I had mine :)

Oh honey, if you are going to have a waffle PLEASE don't go for those frozen monstrosities. lol

Sorry, I'm a waffle snob, I love them. Here is the thing, if it was time to eat and you went for a waffle or part of one, I wouldn't beat you up for it, its not ideal and its not Protein but I can think of worse things to have, but at least make one yourself, you can add some nuts to it and some Protein powder or something before you cook it and you'd be a lot better off nutritionally. Also, in my opinion a good waffle doesn't need a thing on it.

This will not work for you with Celiacs , but when i really want a waffle, I use Bobs Red Mill Low Carb mix and make it myself. I can even freeze a second, and eat later when the urge calls.

8 usable carbs and

12 grams Protein

That sounds like a yummy alternative for some, Feedyoureye. Thanks for posting it! Mine was a moment of weakness that (thankfully!) rarely comes along, but I'll recommend this to my parents who may try it.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
