Day 3 - Low Carb

Today I am 318

The low carb thing is paying off! I failed a little today. Boyfriend had some sweet potato fries. But I'm still under 50g of carbs. I'm trying to drink a glass of water every time I feel snacky... and distract myself with something else before I finish it. 

Lately, I've been distracting myself with this... 

I'm trying to envision what I eat per week...   like a week worth of breakfast looks like what? 
A week worth of lunch? Dinner?   

I also love seeing people stripped down to their undies and then being told how much they weigh. I really don't understand how large I am in comparison to others. I don't know if I'm bigger in my head... thinner? I'm pretty big in my mind. When I see a subway seat and wonder if I can fit there, the answer is usually no. I don't want to bother anyone else with my size. But other times, I feel so much smaller... like in bed with the bf, or at my apartment, or in the bathtub. Hell, even standing in front of a mirror naked...   It's like a different brand of body dismorphia. I certainly don't look thin... It's just difficult to grasp HOW large. 

Low Carb has really cut my caloric intake. Even though I'm eating things like... bacon, and peanut butter and avocados, It's replacing the other calorically dense things like bread and sugar. 

I'm looking forward to the morning weigh ins as I've been lower and lower each time. I'm dreading the day that stops. Until then...  I shall continue my efforts to keep carbs between 40-50g. 

Big Fat Supersized vs. Superskinny Love, 


  1. I want to encourage you with the low-carb. You can always eat something. Snacks are now almonds or a hard boiled egg. I can't tell you how much it has changed my life. Even if I overeat it is low carb. Get the sugar and the starch far far away. Drink that water. Exercise if you desire. There are too many guilt trips over exercise. I really would love to read some day that you have gone to OA.

  2. Woooot! Very nice. If low carbing is getting boring, for an easy eat-all-week meal sautee brussel sprouts or a bag of spinach w/ a little onion and garlic, stir in 1/2 c. sour cream, 1/2 c cream cheese plus the meat from a rotisserie chicken ( or precooked breast meat diced), then a add big handful of cheddar and bacon if you have it, then spread it all into a glass dish or pie pan and cook at 400 for like 20 minutes. It makes a ridiculously rich casserole.

  3. Where you at, Nanette? Hope you're well. Come back!


sorry guys, so much spam, gotta put the filters up again.
