Restriction Much

Forgot what good restriction felt like. And I'm REALLY hoping this restriction sticks around for a while!!!!!

So far today I've had a half a cup of egg substitute with a quarter cup of reduced fat shredded cheese, a cup of raspberry chocolate truffle coffee with a 1/3 cup skim milk and now I'm working a 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes with 1/4 cup of the same cheese with 1/4 cup of fat free plain Greek yogurt that had 2 packets of dry ranch seasoning mixed into it.

I'm restricted with these potatoes. Yeah :)

So I'm taking my dear ol' sweet time.

One thing I will say is man, my belly got really bruised from my fill yesterday. That I believe is the first time. Bummer :(

My husband told me as of May 1st he's going to stop drinking pop and start watching better what he's eating. Which I'm glad for him but I never wanted to pressure him. I know it never did me any good to have someone say to me you need to lose weight. It is also going to help me to not have his junk food in the house because quite frankly it tastes really good! But he told me not to bother him or to ask him about it because he doesn't want me to become "one of those people".

Happy Friday y'all!!!!


  1. Glad to hear you have good restriction! And that you are feeling better!

  2. Ha ha, you said "pop" in the south we call everything a coke :) And giving up the cokes is so hard to do. I wish your hubby all the best with giving them up :)

  4. I'm glad your hubs is going to make some food changes too (or try to anyway). It is easier to not have certain things in the house for sure. A compromise I have with mine, is to have foods I like there are chips, but not the chips I love, same with the soda, ice cream, etc. It is great you both have that good dialogue about what is, and is not, supportive.

    Hope your tummy feels better soon - and glad the restriction is working well. :-)
