I’m still at it. I’m having fun. I’m liking it. And I’m still learning new things.
This weekend, for example, I learned that it is possible to take photos of your food and still gain weight! (ha) Saturday was a perfect example of Too Much Of A Good Thing. (well, actually, NOT too much, but perhaps too much to LOSE weight) I don’t regret a single bite of anything. I don’t feel like I binged. But I know, and especially looking back, that that was a day that I ate really healthy food (perhaps with the exception of the bread and butter, and the cream puff at the end!) but more than was necessary, um, physiologically speaking. I mean: grilled vegetables! Salmon! Shaved zucchini salad! It was all good good food. It was delicious. I ate “in moderation.” All in all, I’d consider it a Success. I did not feel deprived; I ate good things, I was happy.
I also learned that it is possible (well, I knew THIS one already) to eat not enough of Not Very Good Food. This was pretty much yesterday. I was still really full from Saturday AND I was really busy so I did not eat very much. But what I did eat wasn’t the most ideal stuff. A lot of carbs, not enough produce.
Last week I took some photos of lunch while at work. I think my co-workers thought I was a little, um… special. As my daughters would say. But I took them anyway.
I’m excited that since I’ve started this process, a few of my blogging buddies have joined in and are photoblogging too. I’m having a great time following their food, and learning all sorts of things. Here’s Karen’s, and Pubsgal’s, and Sweeter’s. Welcome to foodblogging, friends!
The process is continuing to fascinate me and every day I notice more and more new things. Onward!

It’s fascinating learning about yourself, isn’t it? And woah to everyone else who is doing it now!

I agree with Mary…it is very eye opening.

You didn’t eat THAT much at the wedding. Not at all. You’ve probably only gained water weight.

Yeah. It’s all gone now, so I think that’s true! 🙂

I love that you hop up on the table for your shot!
I happen to love food bloggers. I want to be one when I grow up. Until then, I keep blogging about useless stuff. And play pretend food blogger every few months or so. 🙂

Thanks for the link love! 🙂 That cracked me up that you hopped up on the counter for a shot! (I usually only climb the counters to reach the chocolate chips buried in a box on the top shelf.)

Wow more food blogs. Its impossible to read them all! But I skimmed those ones you listed. Its very interesting to see what other people eat. And how much others eat. Im trying not to compare myself… 🙂 hmm im getting hungry lol.

oops, just as you welcome me into the food blogging world, I’ve gone and quit.
I’m just overall tired and can’t be bothered with it right now. (there might be some girly hormonalness going on too).

It’s OK, Sweeter! and understandable. It IS very time consuming. Right now I’m finding that the benefits are outweighing the hassle, but it certainly isn’t a small thing to take on. If you are ever ready/able to start up again, let me know.

My photographs are not nearly as nice as yours! Still, I love doing this and am learning so much about myself and my relationship with food…
Thanks for inspiring me to do this!
