What I Ate Wednesday

Well, it was actually what I ate Tuesday so I could post it today, haha. Two years ago at this time I was at my lightest weight ever, a thoroughly unhealthy weight. I was constantly sick, including a week long stomach bug during which time I lost another 12 pounds. My clothes were literally falling off of me. Since then I've gained weight, sailing right past my normal resting weight and out the other side. I have only a few pairs of pants and shorts that I can still squeeze myself into. The main issue for me is how I eat at work. I am bored, restless, disenchanted, etc. So I eat. It distracts me for a few minutes. And before you suggest I try nibbling at something like baby carrots (gak), I assure you I've tried it. If the food is unsatisfying I will just acquire something else, which often means I've eaten more not less (first the lame food, followed by the bad food).

Anyway, here's a look at one random day's food consumption:

Black tea with sugar and milk

Whole wheat waffles with lots of butter

Plain black tea

I only buy one of these a week because they're so expensive.

All that was left or I would've eaten more.

Same as above. Last few pretzels in the bag.

Veggie chili with a slice of cheese mixed in.

I eat one of these every day at work.

Office cake. I managed to not eat ALL that frosting.

Penne with butter and parm

Mixed greens with croutons, craisins, shredded cheese, and blue cheese dressing

GAK! Definitely does not look healthy! I am all too familiar with the lame food/bad food syndrome. :(
