3/16/10 - I almost forgot to say that I think I just might have to write out what I eat every day, for every meal. I need to see what and how much I'm eating. I will also blog my exercise. AND SO - - - - with that said, I am off to walk with my friend Patti!! I'll be back soon.
Okay, so now it's 9:33 p.m., I have returned from walking. Still haven't had dinner, and I guess I better not! But, I need to eat SOMEthing! I'm going to go rummage through my freezer and see what I come up with, back in a sec. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . AHA!!!!! I have successfully unearthed an ancient Lean Cuisine! I know it's ancient because of the quarter inch thick layer of ice inside the little film that encloses the food in it's plastic microwave tray. I have turned the whole block out onto one of my own glass plates and am heating as I type, being that I don't like the prospect of eating carcinogens generated by the plastic "dish" that the food comes in. As for the over all health of the meal I am now "cooking" (isn't that a laugh?), there are:
280 calories in this dinner
25 calories from fat - total fat is 4%
500 mg of SODIUM! (NOT GOOD!)
46 grams of carbohydrates!!! Let's see, the conversion of carbs to sugars, and sugars to fat calories. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . is like trying to chase the wind! I'll be back, I have more chasing to do in order to answer my question myself.
Well, I never did get my question answered. I have (instead) started reading the Curves book on weightloss. Only problem with that is that it doesn't give me any instant instruction to get started with eating correctly, it does however give me the authors life story, and a little bit about how when we diet we shouldn't put ourselves on a low calorie, low fat regimine that throws our bodies into the "starvation/survival" mode. I didn't think that I ever did that, so how is it that I have gotten to be 50+ pounds over weight?
