Just Saying ..... I guess I'm on a Diet!




Listen People Dont make me say it, but yes...... YES i'm on a fucking diet!  


Here is a list of food I had to turn down yesterday:


7:00 am  Hello welcome to Starbucks what delicious sugar ridden, expensive, addictive drink can we cheerfully make for you today?


Me - oh nothing, just ordering for him....

   Wow 1 NO down how many more to go?


10:00 am Meet and Greet the new CEO's of the company.....well in order to do that we must EAT!


Wow 2 NO down how many more to go?


12:00 pm Lunch with the Management Team....yippee .... but I packed turkey meatballs and cherries.    

NO TURKEY MEATBALLS FOR YOU! 




I had 1/2 sandwich and Salad with Ranch Dressing.    

Clearly, this was not on my plan for the day and after calculating the two lunches (compared), I had 385 more calories for lunch yesterday than I needed by going away from my plan.   And this is without the chips, without the dessert and without the 2nd half of my sandwich.  

  
In my defense, you see what they day could have been and honestly would have been without my band controlling my cravings and hunger.  So today, I give a big congrats to me and stating that I love my band.  It is the silent partner I have needed to be successful.


Oh and a big thank you to my friend, S, who delightfully points out during our lunch..."hey...psst....bates....you know, ranch is so fattening"... as I stuff my face with my forkful of lettuce leaves dripping in Ranch.    She is lucky she is not wearing the Ranch dressing bowl as a hat.   All with love, S, .......all with love.

    1. believe my Theresa it was hard to say no...but not near as hard as it would have been in my past. Shit, lets call it what it is....I would have eaten what I wanted, then bitched when the scale did not move.

  4. You did good Michelle!!! Just look at those foods and think about how they are NOT good for your body. That's how I teach my daughter. When she wants soda I say "Soda is not good for your body, it actually hurts your body. We can only have a little tiny bit of soda. but we have to drink water or milk because it's very good for your body!"
