I have a descructive pattern when it comes to weight gain. Even when I know that it’s body flactuations and common sense tells me that it’s not a fat gain, I still end up sabotaging myself.
Today I saw a 6lb gain in 5 days. instead of sticking to plan and mitigating the damage what did I do instead? I turned to food.
I do this every time I gain. I get an “I don’t care “attitude and eat whatever I want. I have changed a lot over the past few months and stay away from junk. Therefore the food I turn to is still whole food and healthy, but I eat mindlessly and too much of it.
Today for example, I decides to make skillet potatoes. I stay away from potatoes coz of their high carbs. I hardly have them in the house but for some reason I had 5 small potatoes in my pantry. I cooked all of them. Not one or two, but all of them. Chopped them up and put them in a pan with some oil and fried them until crispy and brown.
I added two eggs and some chopped veggies to the skillet and bam there was lunch.
Now this isn’t a bad unhealthy meal. It would make a great breakfast for the family to share. The only problem is that I ate it ALL by myself.
A whole 783 calories, 99 net grams of carbs, 25 g of protein and 30 g of fat.
Its not pizza or fried chicken or a whole box of oreos, but its still not what I needed to get me to goal weight.
I really need to stop this need to not give an eff when I see a gain and eat whatever I want. Coz then I feel like shit after.
Now I only have 200 cals left for dinner unless I get my sick behind out of the house and go for a walk.
Anyways here are some pictures.
