Too much pizza

Saturday, August 29, 2009

So last night my son and his family came over like they do every Friday, and we ordered in pizza like we do every Friday, and I ate 3 pieces unlike the 2 I usually eat every Friday. I was so hungry, I just couldn't stop at 2.

But it didn't taste that good even. It's weird how your taste buds and stomach adapt to your diet. Anyway, I had gained a pound this morning due to the excess pizza but I've only eaten 1100 calories today and I know I will lose again. It's just an observation.

Tracking my food though has been an ah-hah experience. I always knew that I loved carbohydrates, but I didn't realize how much. I'm always below SP's guidelines when it comes to fat (I really don't eat much fat), I'm often below on calories and protein, but I'm never below on carbohydrates. That's probably one of the reasons why I have very triglycerides (although a lot of that is genetics).
All of my favorite foods are carbohydrate--pasta, cookies, chocolate, etc. The crust is my favorite part of the pizza even lol.

I'm really not sure how to cut out carbs. It seems like there would be nothing left to eat. But I really should try to control my carb intake and see if that makes a difference in how I feel and how I look. I did try the Atkins and Body for Life (both of which include a lot of protein) and I couldn't do either for more than a couple of days. I really couldn't eat that much food, especially the proteins. It's weird how everyone's different.

Anyway, I am losing weight. I am now at the weight I usually start dieting at. But that also means I only have 12 lbs to be at my Weight Watchers goal weight. I can do this if I try.

    I can say I did good tonight with only having 1 piece of pizza at my sister's but than I had 3 cinnamon bread sticks and chips when I got home. I'm so totally a carbs person also, I'm hardly ever short on the carbs, but we "carb-lovers" must do our best to balance. So just keep trying and realize that bad nights come and go as longs as that is all they are and not bad weeks:) emoticon

    I sympathize with your pizza dilemma. I almost always have a little gain after we order pizza. I swear I think it's the sodium content. It will even out...just keep a steady course.

    I think that cutting out carbs altogether is just unrealistic. Who would want to live a life that doesn't include occasional bread or ice cream? Balance is the key I'm convinced. Balance is something you can do long term.

    Hang in there! emoticon

    Like you I can't stop at two, I usually have 3 maybe 4 but then I double up my stepping and excercies, which I hate, but I do it anyways. As to carbs, I have been following emoticon , the water diet, I make sure now that I have a large glass of water, it really fills me up and I stick stickly to sparks diet, they have helped me greatly with my carb intake they are awesome. emoticon emoticon Keep doing you best.
