This week’s diet updates

I should point out that the “this week’s diet updates” series that this post launches are probably going to be uninteresting to anyone but me.

I’m going to whine a little about the things I did, or didn’t, do. I’m going to talk about my weaknesses over and over and over again.

You have been warned.

One more thing, I will not be accounting for every meal or every day. Not gonna happen.


8:00 a.m. — I started tracking my food via Weight Watchers again. I know that this doesn’t actually make me eat better, but I need to take a first step and this is it for me.

1:00 p.m. — I had a salad for lunch today. I’m going to try and have more salads instead of sandwiches, etc. I don’t seem to be getting any kind of vegetables in my daily intake since I stopped cooking a few weeks ago. 

8:00 p.m. — I need to start eating dinner earlier… or making it lighter. Somehow I don’t think egg and cheese tacos is what I’m supposed to be aiming for in a weight loss program 


2:00 pm. — I went to the pizza buffet today and actually only had two slices. And I “counted” both slices, in addition to the luscious salad, for today’s Weight Watchers points. I am going to be over my points by a lot today.


7:00 a.m. — I just realized that all my pants fit too tight. I refuse, REFUSE!!!!, to buy new clothes. I absolutely am going to lose weight. I cannot afford to buy new clothes just because I am too lazy and weak to show a little willpower. Well, I can afford it but I cannot justify it to myself or to my financial goals. 

2:00 p.m. — I had a turkey chef salad for lunch, which is good. I used too much blue cheese dressing, which wasn’t as good. Progress is made in small increments.


9:00 a.m. — Is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich okay for breakfast? At least I toasted the bread.

1:00 p.m. — Another restaurant-bought salad for lunch. Tried the chef salad, which had more meat and cheese than I’m sure I should have. I chose the honey mustard dressing, which was not as much fun as the blue cheese dressing. 

This week I’m focusing on reducing the really bad choices: bread, fried foods, sugar, etc.  I’ve had bread a few times, but have done well in avoiding sugar and other stuff. I can’t be perfect overnight. Actually, I can’t be perfect at all. Going to focus on getting my clothes to fit better by making better choices. Let’s see how long that lasts.
