Reality Check on Food

So where am I food wise---here is my reality check.  I have started tracking back on MFP..this is key for me to be accountable for what I am eating or honestly...I don't remember how much food I have put in my pie-hole.
Quit eating out...this is a big calorie killer for me.  Eating out may have some good choices but the calories are still way to high, especially if I am trying to keep it around 900.  Right now I am averaging 1500..way to many calories.
Working out..whats that...I know I need to get back to the gym....I am so lazy...I am so not motivated.

I am looking forward to my fill and scared to death I may swell if he gives me too much.  Not sure what my sweet spot for a fill should be today.  He took out 1cc back in December when I stressed out over the holidays and slammed shut.  I am thinking I should only get a .5cc today.  Hope the doctor agrees.

I signed up to make a stained glass lamp..I am pretty excited to make one.  I have always wanted to but was a little intimidated to do so.  For Xmas I got a gift card to the local stained glass shop and used it for this class.  My girlfriend also signed me up to do a pottery class...we haven't decided when, she got it on groupon.  I love doing these types of things...maybe because its so different than what I do for a living(working on computers).

I got a cold on new years eve that I am still trying to completely shake.  I got bronchitis when Johnny was 6 months and ever since then my colds always end up in my chest for a long time.  I am still congested and coughing today.  I hear this makes others bands tight...mine does not seem to be doing that, sure wish it did!!!!

Thanks for all the kind words yesterday.  I forgot how much I enjoy reading the emails from you guys(your guys replies to my blog post come to me in an email)

Those classes sound like fun! I'm not artistic at all...I think I'd be too stressed to take an artsy class. :)

My food has sucked over the holidays but I'm getting back to better choices. Will start bugging you about working out soon! :)

900 sounds awfully low to me. Is that really what your surgeon/nutritionist recommends? You should be able to lose weight even at 1,500; it will just be a bit slower. Maybe you should aim more for 1,200 or so? I am leery of very low calories because they tend to trigger bingeing for me, but maybe you don't have that issue!

Good to have you back.

Booo to colds, coughs, sneezes and all related ucky winter bugs. Get well soon.

I love groupon for finding all sorts of unusual things to do. THe stained glass lamp making and pottery classes sound great.

Pottery classes sounds fun - my mom used to paint ceramics for a living, and she loved it. I need to be more like you, Jenn, and go have adventures with art. :)

You'll get back in the swing of things. Lord knows we're all in the exact same place. lol

Oh, the tracking! Truly one of the single most important things I get back to when I'm back in WL mode...good for you for getting back to that! Be gentle with yourself about the gym...you will get back there, it is the first week of the new year! And those 2 classes are something I've ALWAYS wanted to do - keep us posted, maybe I'll look into that!
