Today: 238.4 / LDW: 239.6 / Net: -1.2
Okay… so overindulging in cheese may just be the culprit. I dropped 1.4 pounds yesterday. I ate just as many (if not more) calories, so I know that it wasn’t that I was starving myself. 🙂
Today was my office Christmas potlluck. I think I did pretty darn good, if I say so myself. I only let myself eat ONE thing that wasn’t technically low-carb, and I only ate about a tablespoon of it – for around 6 carbs. It was Pancit Bihon, a Filipino noodle/vegetable/chicken dish. And SOOO good! Plus, the noodles aren’t wheat, they’re rice. I brought my own dessert, so I was able to have a sweet at the end. (Actually, there were a few folks excited about my dessert contribution… There’s rarely anything a diabetic can eat for dessert at our office potlucks.)
There was a TON of carb-y dishes, and I didn’t even taste a single one! Potatoes, rice, breads, pies, cakes, cookies, etc. I was REALLY proud of myself. And, I was able to deflect all of the well-meaning-saboteurs. I can’t tell you how many times I heard “Oh, one bite would be fine!” or “But, it’s a party! You can let go for one meal!” My standard response was “It would hurt my progress.” And, “It can’t possibly be as tasty as the 30 pounds I’ve lost.” So there. *nod*
I had my hair appointment tonight, and my hairdresser was being super-chatty… so it took a lot longer than usual. Just got home a bit ago, and I’m exhausted. So gonna wrap this up and go to bed.
Breakfast was 2 turkey sausage links, 2 scrambled eggs with butter & salsa. Snack was 1/2 an apple & 2 tbsp almond butter. Lunch was the potluck: pansit, swedish meatballs, ham, turkey, cabbage curry, greek salad, chicken wing, lox/cream cheese, & SF Jell-o/berries/heavy whipped cream. Dinner was bratwurst, saurkraut and a string cheese. Then I ate a piece of cocoa crack.
