Re: SO full!
Jul 25, 2006
USAM- thanks for the advice. I usually eat more fruit. Today, for example, I had a banana, mango and blueberries at breakfast. And after lunch I had an apple and an apricot. But I must say, it was a lot easier to eat more fruits and vegetables when I wasn't on a meal plan that filled me up with grains, fats, etc. I used to think "wow -I eat WAY more than the daily recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables everyday. I am so healthy!!," but now I find myself counting the lettuce and tomato in my sandwich as my only vegetable for the day - and that barely even passes!

I am glad you think it's ok to have frozen yogurt every night b/c I absolutely love it. I am just scared of how much I look forward to it. Sometimes I find myself thinking about it even before LUNCH and I plan on it alllllll day until it is finally "time" (after dinner). I hope this obsessive thinking will end, but what if it doesn't? What if I am just always this dessert-hoarding glutton who just can't get enough?!?!

I'm surprised that you all think that I am not eating enough. Today I woke up and had a banana, lowfat cottage cheese, mango and blueberries and a nonfat latte. Then as a snack, a granola bar. For lunch I had a big turkey sandwich on wheat bread with lettuce, tomato, sprouts and avocado and an apple and an apricot afterwards. Not sure what I'm going to do about dinner, but don't you think that's a good day so far?

GIRLY - you are absolutely right. I think I am wanting to go from anorexic to completely normal, never thinks about food, and that is almost impossible. This in-between phase is so hard though because I AM still preoccupied with food and I AM still struggling with my meal plan, but I'm also doing a lot of things right and I'm thinking differently, too. It's so much harder than I imagined it would be.

ALSO, my outpatient program ends on THURSDAY. It has been 12 weeks already! No matter what, it ends after 12 weeks. I am excited, but I am also scared to be on my own. I still feel like I have a lot of support, but it will be weird not to be in the program anymore....I don't know exactly how I feel about that. I don't even know if I'm ready to be done, but I guess I don't have a choice....
