I am a FAT COW

Recommended Posts

I feel so censored.gif fat. I believe that I am an emotional eater popcorn.gif. I find that I eat when I bored. I eat when I am lonely, upset, tired and want to stay awake and most importantly if I know that I will enjoy it and its here.

 

I have tried healthy snacks but it works the same. But I eat because I want to eat. Now I am 5'5" and I weigh about 165lb. I am very top heavy 36DDD with a 31in waist.

 

I would love to get down to 130 but will settle 145. I will start a new eating regiment on a monday and do good all week. Then the weekend it is over.

 

 

I AM A FAT COW

 

Any words of wisdom on how to beat the gorging

I feel ya girl! I'm an emotional eater too. When I'm sad, I eat. When I'm pissed off, I eat. When I'm happy.. I eat. It's so messed up, what is wrong with us?

 

I used to go to the gym all the time and that helped. But now I'm out of that routine. This is why I am forcing myself to go to the gym tomorrow.

I am also a fat cow! Same height, close weight but smaller boobs and bigger waist! What about joining Weight Watchers? I love it and I find that it really helps - much better than other "diets" out there. You can eat whatever you want but you just have to track your points. So suddenly you find yourself making healthy choices so you can eat more!

 

Anyway here are some ideas for when you emotionally need to eat but don't want all the extra calories:

 

- 98% fat free popcorn. You can eat the whole bag and not feel guilty. Want something sweet try the kettle corn flavors.

 

- Salsa with carrots, celery or Light n' thin wasa crackers.

 

- Want cheese? Tray Chavrie creamy goat cheese. It's about 1/2 the calories of regular cheese and so tasty! Good on above mentioned celery and carrots, crackers. Also throw it into pasta sauce to create a "cream sauce." Or try laughing cow light cheese wedges.

 

- Western Alternative Bagel toasted with light cream cheese. These are so low in calories/high in fiber you can eat 2!

 

Easy Dinner Idea: Fresh veggies, grilled veggies or veggies sauteed w/ cooking spray. Add a lean protein to make it a meal:

 

**grilled chicken breast, lean beef, fish, veggy subsitutue meat products, seafood items like shrimp, scallops, etc.

 

Then flavor with the following:

 

**Italian: crished tomatoes, crushed garlic and finely chopped onion with salt, pepper, dried basil and parsley to taste.

 

**Asian-inspired: soy sauce or low sugar teriyaki sauce, fresh or powdered ginger and a tiny splash of rice vinegar

 

**Indian: crushed tomatoes, Curry powder (or use cumin, salt, red chili, turmeric and coriander powders)

You ladies make me feel better. I love the healthy eating ideas. It is what i need because we have a corner store at work and if i dont pack my lunch i usually get the 50cent chocolate donut or chips. i have been good with water. i drink at least 2 bottles at work and crystal light at home. it is mostly the weekends that put me over the edge. I love the different snacks like the salsa and carrots.

 

i dont get to get to the gym and I wish I could. when the weather breaks I have a track around the corner that I can walk and Amir ride his bike on.

 

I am glad I am not the only fat cow.

 

CAN I GET A MOO

MOOOOOOOOOOOOO....

At least you have an excuse (a.k.a. KIDS!) I haven't even had kids yet and I'm a fat cow! wink.gif

But honestly right now I don't feel TOO bad about it! Hey, at least we're trying to do something about it, right?

My other big secret is to add a HUGE (and I mean HUGE) salad onto my meals so that way I feel really full! My classic lunch salad is:

mixed green
steamed broccoli
egg whites
green onions
1/4 c. kidney beans (this is the only item int eh salad where you need to what the amount)
hearts of palm
peppercinis (I have no idea how to spell this)
green beans
cherry tomatoes
tons and tons of balsamic vinegar

The whole salad is like 1 WW point... aka no fat, very few calories and lot of fiber!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
