There is nothing like a shopping trip that was supposed to help my low self esteem that actually reinforced more about why I don't like how I look. Everything makes me still look like I'm pregnant. There were women basically in the first aisle I went in making fun of me saying things like how I would just be stretching out the clothes and it would never look good. Why would someone do that? I never asked them to comment about my shopping and how would they know who I am even shopping for? It feels like my first weight loss all over again except I don't have control of the food entering my home. I felt so deflated and really just wanted to leave the store. I just felt ugly. I don't even want pictures of myself but I should face the reality of what I actually look like and go from there. Everyone has some starting point. Mine happens to feel like 200lbs. Too much weight for me personally. I feel like the belly band will become a daily item for the rest of my life like underwear or brushing my teeth.

I'm probably not taking care of my body well enough. I'm awake on 2hrs of sleep. I was so tired I just started crying. I've literally only been away from my children for 30 minutes since I left the hospital less you count the bathroom. I want to eat to make me feel not hungry. Looking at the food in the refrigerator makes me somewhat saddened because I long to eat fish.

Alright so I decided for sure that I'm really going to do this thing even if I don't like my body in the end. My children are going to be better off with a healthy happy mom than one the wants to sulk in a corner because she has a negative body image and feels like nothing can be done. I just have to try. I never thought having twins would cause me to gain 95 pounds. I'm down a lot but I would like to lose quite a lot more before I have to go back to work. My ultimate goal is to be back at 140lbs but right now the short term goal is to get to 190lbs. I'm not cleared for exercise yet and my incision still hurts sometimes to its going to be a long road. I'm going to try to be optimistic about this weight loss.

I was suprised to see the 3. That means there is hope and I was so full last night from that little bowl of sautéed kale, mushrooms, carrots with baked citrus salmon. It was such a good meal. I have a lot of salmon left too so I will be making something with it again today. I'm learning how to work on my grocery spending and I think I might have to work really hard to spend within the budget I think is reasonable.

I wonder if I can get in the 30s. This happens every time where my weight stalls at this point. I'm still highly overweight. The only thing I can think of is that I'm still eating too much fruit.

No weigh in.

No weigh in for a bit. I think I'm going to just try and eat more vegetables and see where it takes me. I'm going to eat a lot more house salads when I'm out at restaurants now and just add meat to it.

Alright I feel content after having my solid meal last night. I did some grocery shopping and tried to get more vegetables. I'm afraid of going to the Olive Garden today. I looked at their menu yesterday and am slightly fearful of what might happen today in terms of them accommodating my limited options. I can't remember if they have cheese on their salad.

Edit:I was reading this morning and throughout this whole detox thing I've never considered the carbs in the fruits and vegetables I was eating. So apparently if I balance out more of the low carb fruits and vegetables I will have less plateau in reaching 140. I'm going to look into the foods I normally buy and see where they fall in terms of the carbs. I will also try to create a couple meals using both low carb fruits and vegetables. I am not giving up fruit this time. I don't mind giving up grains and most meat if I can eat fruit.
