1. This is my first journal entry here. I used to journal in the newbie section under Frustrated.
Yes, I am frustrated for not losing a gram in 31 days. I have come a long way to adjust to the new lifestyle since I started but without results. The one crucial thing that i have failed to achieve is my intake. I have been overeating. Or rather binging on all the healthy foods.
I just need to get over this hurdle. It is all about net calories.
I do not feel good. I feel bloated and discomforted.
I just need to eat less and less every day.
Just say NO to overeating. Just stop eating when hunger is tamed. Stop thinking about food. I just have enough.
2. I did not prepare my overnight cereal as I wanted to live on potato salad today. I am taking one day at a time for now.
So far so good. Potatoes for breakfast and lunch. As I prepared Vegies and baked potatoes, I could not resist the temptation to have early potato salad lunch. As I finished my salad bowl, I thought of making another one. Then, I said, NO no more or now. Unless hunger strikes, my next food intake is after 16h00.
I have some questions around potatoes which I will pose in a different thread - are there any daily restrictions for eating sweet potato? For me, grilled sweet potato is as sweet as a banana. So if fruit name should be limited to 2 serving per day, why not sweet tomatoes ? Is it ok to eat the skin of the grilled potatoes?
21h12 Hurray ! my first day on potato. Potatoes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack. I still ate a lot of potatoes - maybe 8 to 10.
The temptation was high to eat bulgur but I did not. I still got bulgur with tomatoe purĂ©e in the fridge and vegetables Tabouleh (bulgur salad) and I wonder whether I should eat them or throw them away and stick to potatoes until I get my weight moving downwards.
Alternatibely, I could have potatoes for another 2 days and then bulgur for 2 days and then back potato diet only. This way, I would have set myself on mono diet journey. I wonder what others recommend.
