kingkeld's Journal, 28 August 2012

Good morning!

I'm so glad to put "100%" at the "How closely followed" question on my weigh-in details today.

I was actually low on calories, two days straight, and I probably will be today also.

This is no biggie, It'll even itself out over time. I eat what I need to, I make sure I am not hungry and I choose smarter. That's the plan.

Snacks yesterday consisted of two apples. No bad stuff - at all. I had my usual breakfast and sane choices for lunch and dinner.

I'm not gonna say that yesterday was easy, though. I had massive withdrawals from refusing to have any sugar, and that really sucked. It had be pacing like a caged lion (at least that's how it felt to me) and nothing I tried helped.

I'm happy that I managed to steer clear of the traps, and just do right. AND it shows on the scale today - I am down another 500 grams.

There is still quite some ways to go, but I feel confident that I am going to finish what I started this time.

I will do this Indulgence Day style, so I have a weekly day with more calories - this has worked great for me all the way, and it helps me a lot to have the day off.

The only thing I am thinking about changing is to stay clear of the sugars on Saturdays too. I think that if I can do that it might make the following days easier on me, in the way that I don't have to deal with the carb monster visiting Sunday and Monday. That's usually how it works for me. A couple of days where I crave sugar after I've had it.

Why does it have to be like this?

Today is gonna be a rough day. I have three interviews at work. As I am still recovering from the surgery - but almost there - I don't have all the energy I usually have.

On a "normal day" before surgery I'd have two interview three days a week. Today I have three on one day. NOT happy. I'll have to talk to the lady that books them and see that she doesn't book me that hard another time. I hope I can make it through okay. I just might call one and move it a day or two. We'll see.

On the other hand, it's nice to feel that I'm back on track with pretty much everything - even if I am worn out at the end of the day.

I enjoy that work is more normal, I get to play music and soon my teaching will begin. It's nice.

Today is also the first day I will try to go to work without my girdle. That thing is driving me nuts. I have been sleeping without it for a little while, and I think it's time to lose it altogether. My doc told me that once I feel that I am ready to lose the support it gives, then it's okay for me to lose it.

I think I'm ready for that. I am so sick and tired of wearing that thing.

Now, of course, I have to deal with a little "pot belly" on my dashing looks again. No surgery is perfect, and now that the swelling from the surgery has come down, there is a little tiny belly hanging when I stand up.

It has to be like this, as the skin stretches differently when I lie on my back. When I lie down I can feel that the skin is stretched right to where it can go. If it was tighter, it would feel like I was straining it. So of course, it'll be different when I stand up and gravity does its thing.

However, I am so used to my look wearing the girdle, and it threw me off a little looking in the mirror this morning while getting dressed. It's okay, it doesn't look bad or anything, but I honestly don't look skinny like I did before surgery. Weird, huh?

Maybe it helps losing those last 10 kgs. We'll see.

Today I am thankul for:
- A great night's sleep.
- Morning coffee.
- Wife.

Happy Tuesday! Life is good!

Congrats on your girdle freedom!! :) Also, I'm convinced that nobody is ever 100% truly happy with their looks. Plus, you'll need that little bit of 'extra skin' for your massive 6-pack abs to have enough space to grow. ;)

I find it odd how our mind plays tricks with our bodies. I have lost 60 lbs, and I dont look any skinnier to me sometimes. My belly is still there, my Fupa, and my other places. Now I can tall my body changed, and sometimes I feel a new bone I forgot about since I was young. lol. I am having a bad week myself, so good job Keld, your motivating me again!

Erika, not too sure about 6-packs. I don't want the keg back, though. ;)

Good for you on the sugar! The first two weeks are the toughest...after that the cravings are very infrequent, and usually can be managed much, much easier. Keep up the good work!
