I’m eating much more than before. I’m having to push myself to get enough points each day! Because the WW stuff says over and over again that if you don’t eat enough, your body will go into starvation mode. I understand that. I’m just not really into eating. I’m working on it, though.
Points Range 28–33
Wednesday 34 points
Thursday 25 points
Sunday 24 (and that was after making myself eat a snack last night)
I went over once (because I’d underestimated points on a meal at first), under twice. I’ve had more than enough water each day, but haven’t done as well about the veggies. I ran out of vitamins today and need to go get more.
I am noticing that I’m not as congested in general. I think it’s probably not having much if any corn—I was eating grits every morning. Corn is one of the bluzillion things I’ve been told that I’m allergic to in the past (eggs, chocolate, milk, wheat, you name it —f you eat it, that doctor said I was allergic to it).
I’m more than full, but somehow I’m not *satisfied*. I don’t normally consider myself an emotional eater. I know that cheese grits are major comfort food for me, but other than that—I consider food fuel, and that’s about it. I know that I’ll have trouble with the portion control if I do eat cheese grits, so I’m just not having them for now. I did allow myself my daily mug of Suisse Mocha, as it’s an important part of my morning ritual. (I have OCD, okay? Rituals are important.)
I’m not sure what to do about it and I don’t want to get into a state of feeling deprived, because I’m more likely to undermine myself if that happens. Suggestions?
