I just ate too much and I didn't even eat that much.

I went in to work an hour late this morning so I didn't have my coffee until after 10am. By the time I was hungry, it was 11am and I felt it was too late to eat breakfast food, so I ate about 3/4-1 cup of potato/broccoli/cheese soup. At 1pm I was hungry so I hit the break room looking for some baked chips. To my surprise (yeah right) there wasn't much food in there (biscotti anyone) so I grabbed a cup of raman noodles (290 calories). As I am eating them I notice how gross they are and email my good friend Kelly (http://kellyolexa.blogspot.com/) and tell her how gross they are and that eating slowly helps me realize that. When I get home I start dinner. I had 3/4 of a turkey burger with steak sauce (no bun--about 3 ounces of meat), 1/3 cup of mixed veggies, and maybe a cup of some chicken/broccoli flavored pasta with broccoli. The pasta is supposed to have 290 calories when cooked, but that's with 2% milk and 2tsp butter. I used skim milk and skipped the butter. I also had a few swipes of frosting from that damn birthday cake. I do not feel guilty for this because I have learned that if I crave something, then I need to eat it--but only a few bites--to get it out of my system. In the case of the cake, I wasn't craving it, but I saw it, I wanted it, and I ate it. I lost 30+ lbs in the past and I ate cheesecake, so that frosting won't kill me. Anyway, I am stuffed and there really wasn't that much food on my plate. I am sure I will be starving soon. I'll deal with that when the time comes.

I have started to lose some. My new scale would NOT drop below 130 and my old one wouldn't go past 125. It's great to see them moving down!
