NOTE: I'M 3 YEARS OUT!!! I SHOULD KNOW WHAT I'M DOING WRONG! I SHOULD BE A PRO ON THIS STUFF BY NOW!! RIGHT??? Wrong. Like an alcoholic I will always have a problem with food. I should know this. But I don't. I forget. I start thinking I'm normal but I'm not. I have issues with food. I can't eat what others eat and expect to stay thin. It's not in my DNA.
How is it that I can let my guard down so much and be totally oblivious to stuff that I ought to have down now? I found out that the Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino's that I've been enjoying (1 sometimes 2 a day) have 37 carbs....my Keurig tea that is sweetened with Stevia is 18 carbs. (Granted that's better than the McDonald's Sweet tea that I was enjoying DAILY for a while there) but still 18 carbs - add these to the regular food carbs and today I have consumed 96 carbs yet only 945 calories which just goes to prove that it's not calories that are make my body fat...it's carbs!!!! So you would think that I'd KNOW how many carbs were in something before I put it in my mouth...not wait 6 months later to look them up. But no, I forget. Today has been mentally hard...journaling I realized how much snacking I've been doing too. I've got to stop eating between meals. I've got to stick to 3 meals a day only! I've got to go back to basics.
