Yesterday was easier until after dinner. My worst times are mid afternoon and right after dinner.
I used to be a smoker. Not a heavy smoker but after dinner was always when I craved it the most. When I quit smoking, I traded cigarettes for sweets. Promptly gained 40 lbs. which is part of what I’m trying to lose. I quit smoking about 10 years ago.
Even before then, I’ve always been heavy. Not to the level I am now, but heavy. I’ll never be a twiggy and don’t expect to be.
So last night I had a little popsicle. One of those mini ones that are only 40 cals and about 9 gms of sugars I think. I’ll have to check the box again, but I get them at our Sav-a-lot here and they are marketed towards the Mexican population. They are really good and just enough of a treat but I wanted more afterwards.
Well, I finally took my measurements. Staggering.
I try to promote accepting of oneself, but I’ll be honest. I have never accepted myself. I’ve always felt embarrassed about my weight. I just want to be thin. And healthy.
Measurements are in inches.
