I’ve been thinking about my weight loss lately and wondering if something is wrong with me. I don’t know why I can’t just be happy I’m losing weight. It just seems like I’m losing weight faster than I should be based on what I’m eating. I’m not counting calories anymore, just trying to eat less. When I first suspected I had diabetes, one of the symptoms was unexplained weight loss. And now I’m feeling like my weight loss is “unexplained” again.

But maybe I’m doing better than I thought. I started thinking about some of the changes I’ve made. A big one is breakfast. A friend of mine at work was bringing me a biscuit (sometimes with sausage, sometimes with egg & cheese) every weekday morning. Now I only allow him to do this on Fridays. So the other four days, I’m eating oatmeal or maybe a couple of slices of cheese. Those biscuits were about 570 calories. So, I’m cutting 2280 from four days of biscuits, and only adding back maybe 650 calories. So I’m saving over 1600 calories per week right there. Also, I’m not eating any snacks at night most of the time. I’m eating practically NO sweets, just a bite or two a week, maybe. So when I look at all that, I guess I’m cutting down more than I thought. See, I’ve talked myself out of worrying about losing too fast. 🙂
