Something rather odd for me…  I’ve noticed that in the past week I’ve been able to STOP eating when I’m full…

Not perhaps a major thing for most people, but quite a big thing for me!  A GOOD big thing.  :D

Tonight for instance, I ordered Chinese – yeah, I know not a good choice, but I was craving mu shu chicken – I ordered steamed dumplings & crab/cheese wonton as well and ate those first and then I was full.  AND I stopped eating!  I’ll have mu shu tomorrow I guess  ;)

It’s the end of my first week of the Biggest Loser Challenge… I’m fairly confident that I’ll see at least a 2 pound weight loss.  And I’ll have made my cardio/Evil Trainer/Pilates goals, not sure however if I’m going to drag my ass out in the cold (having a small cold snap here) to go swimming.  I’ll see how I feel after dinner – right now I’m just too damn hungry to even think about any kind of exercise – I’ve only had some yogurt today.  I got involved in planning a possible new venture for me, and kind of forgot to eat (WTF??!?!)…  Well, that and I have Lemon Chili Chicken from The Organic dish in the crockpot – and NOTHING was going to taste as good as it currently smells…

Good lord the cravings were bad for pizza and sweets – cookies specifically…  But I did NOT give in!  Granted the day isn’t over, and the dangerous time of the evening is still to come, but I am DETERMINED to not give in to the damn cravings….  I know if I do no matter how good it tastes, it will make me feel like crap.

I’m just going to have to keep myself really distracted tonight to keep from slipping into old habits and ordering pizza…  I think perhaps I’ll work on something from my 101 in 1001 list – there are some boxes begging to be unpacked.  And I can pull together some things to go to Goodwill…

2 more days till the weigh-in…

And I’m VERY hungry – actual hunger, not cravings hunger… must go eat now…

FINALLY got the system problem resolved at about 23:30 last night.  THANK GOD!  Had to do a small amount of work this morning- but I actually got to enjoy my day!

To celebrate, I finally ordered myself an “Entertainment Center” (okay, it’s really a long, low dresser) from Room & Board.  Check it out:

I know I’m not eating enough, and I’m hungry ALL THE DAMN TIME!  But there is nothing in the house that I actually want to eat (craving baked goods currently).  I know I just need to get used to not being stuffed all the time, and that in a week or so I’ll be just fine….but I’m in the danger period right now…

DAMMIT and now Jackass is IM’g me about food!  Clearly the gods are against me today….
