Day 5, I am hungry. But I know I am not hungry, I am just so used to eating insane portion sizes that my stomach feels empty even though it isn’t. I am used to a bowl of cereal that I pour to nearly the top, topped with milk and sometimes even some sugar; now I am carefully measuring out one serving size with my handy new set of measuring spoons. What a reality check!
Surprisingly, one serving of Cheerios DID make me feel satisfied, sadly though, so would have the four servings I used to eat- that goes to show that I was overeating so bad before. It is going to take some massive will power but I am loving this so far.
Unfortunately, my husband is not so on board, sure, he is ‘logging’ his calories, but I don’t think he is being accurate, and if he gets the tiniest little hunger pain he has to eat- making excuses like his body needs meat, or his body needs that… honey, sorry to say, but your body would survive on it’s own for a month if you stopped eating today. He has at least 200 pounds to loose if not more… the will power does not exist in him at all right now.
That lack of will power on his part means he seems to want me to stop dieting too, so I will stop ‘helping’ him and just let him continue eating whatever he wants without doing a lick of activity… so if I slip up and say “a buffalo chicken burger sounds great but I am not wasting that many calories” he is quick to jump in and say things like ‘you can’t starve your body’, or ‘you need certain things to survive’.. and so on… no, I am not starving, I am eating my allowed calories, I am just choosing to make those calories be something besides one horrible fattening meal. I am actually eating more than when I started, and the things I am eating are much healthier. Sometimes I would like to fantasize about filling my stomach with something not good for me, but heaven forbid I say it out loud…
Regardless, even though I am a bit irritable today; possibly the lack of sugar, lack of support, or both… I am still loosing weight and I am doing it for myself, not for my husband so he can suck it! lol (just kidding… kinda!)
