Oh man ... what others consider cheats, I consider wins!

I only had bread out of the bread basket 1 meal out 5 this week, and I resisted putting butter on it

I ordered the burger over the grilled chicken salad one day for lunch, but I didn't eat the bun.

I ordered a panini for Breakfast over an egg white omelet, but I only ate 1/8th of it.

I had a glass of port after dinner one night, but I resisted my colleague's homemade chocolate chip Cookies and all the Snacks in the conference rooms and hospitality suite.

And that was all just this week! :blush:

Yesterday I treated myself to a iced Passion tea sweetened with stevia from Starbucks.

And I drank it through a straw.

It was great.

I love that tea!

Well this confession you pre-diet brothers and sisters mightvsnicker at me# Probably,i deserve it. As I have declared in other locations I started my pre-diet liver-shirinking regime,a little earlier than most. After 2 evenings of improviding home-cooked type of below 300 calorie type below 30 carb items last night (night#3) I,microwaved an approved calorie frozen item. It was Kung Pao steamerchicken with edamame and red peppers.Opened it. Hmmn A little,dry and Tasteless but I guess it's okay. Eat it all down and then noticed the steamer bowl has two sections, lift that up and underneath there is the Kung Pao sauce. Duh!🍮

I ate a whole can of pringles last night. Eating when you’re mad as all get out is definitely a thing...and yes, I had to specifically go get them so that’s a choice I accepted.

today is a new day. And I have plans for it. Give myself some grace and move on!

I was indeed. And I feel like chips are a slider food anyway because they have zero nutritional value, so no matter how many you eat, your body isn't signaling signs of fullness because it's getting no nutrition! So there I was just nomming away angrily.

Today's workout and meal plan shall combat my emotional eating last night I hope! Beware of the slider foods and emotional eating my friends!

All of my "snack" foods have to be labelled as Protein xyz

so I don't feel bad incorporating them

protein chips, Cookies, nuts, whatever...

its a clever marketing ploy to keep me from goal...

My cheat is Red wine. I love the taste and I love the social side of it. I have tried champagne since surgery and it bubbles weird in my pouch so I have let that and beer slide for now. When my husband has chips I’ll take a couple but won’t have a serve to myself. Moderation and Protein first helps mostly.

My wanting other things like lollies and ice cream are there, but I try to wait it out, not having it in the house helps.

I’m 2 months post so still experimenting and changing out old habits for my new lifestyle

Unless I someday go off the rails, I really don’t consider any food a “cheat”. If there is something I want, I can plan around it, change my daily intake to accommodate it and eat a few bites to satisfy my craving. I also just substitute. For instance, my Nextdoor neighbor brought over chocolate covered Reese’s Rice Krispie treats for my husb. Because they were there, I wanted them. But, if I had one, I’d have eaten the entire plateful. So, when he ate one for dessert, I ate a tablespoon of natural Peanut Butter. It tasted exactly like his treat smelled so I was satisfied.
Otherwise, if I know I want something a little higher in calories, I just do all low cal/no carb Protein to allow for the higher cal/carb lunch or dinner. It’s pretty easy. If you’re already at your daily limits, you can just wait until the next day and plan it in. The food will still be there.
Nothing is really off the table.
“Cheating” thinking is just self defeating thinking in that you’re talking about cheating yourself.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
