Day 4 of Reduced Sugar and...
I'm feeling better today. I slipped up with dinner, though. My husband got takeout. I asked for a grilled chicken sandwich with a side salad. They put barbecue sauce on the sandwich, and it was on a white sesame seed bun. I guess all in all I didn't make a terrible choice, but it wasn't as strict as I had been. The sugar in that barbecue sauce had to be high because I was actually full after eating it, which hasn't happened all week. After tracking, I see that it was probably about 13 grams of sugar in the sauce. Oh well.
I can't eat perfectly all the time! I don't even know why I'm even trying this sometimes. It's hard, plus I keep worrying I'm going to end up binging since I'm being so strict with my diet right now. The reason I've been so successful with weight loss so far is that I've allowed myself to eat whatever I want (mostly) and just tracked it and tried to stay within range. Now that I'm restricting what I eat so much, I worry. I see all these people who turn into "clean eating" freaks and then they eat clean for about a month before they mysteriously disappear off of SP. It SOUNDS like a good idea, this clean eating thing, but is it really? I guess it is as long as we realize that it's just not going to happen 100% of the time. If I eat mostly unprocessed, healthy food 80 to 90% of the time I'm still doing great. Slip-ups happen. And besides, it wasn't even that big of a slip-up! It's not like I ate a hot fudge sundae or something! It is A-OK.
