I am so happy!
Wren, I am happy that I'm losing again. I know I'm not setting any weight loss records, but a loss is a loss.
Weigh-in day, and I'm down another 1/2 lb. I really would like to see more than that each week, but a loss is a loss. I do not feel hungry or deprived, I am just making healthier choices and limiting quantities. Not to the point of being hungry, just to the point of feeling satisfied and not stuffed. I do eat small portions of "unhealthy foods" at times, but the difference is they are small, small portions, just for a taste. If I know I can have a little bit of something I am more satisfied. This is working better for me than passing up certain foods completely and then ending up bingeing. I was used to eating the same vegetables over and over and now I am trying different ones, and I no longer crave carbs. So all in all, I am happy with my progress.
Yesterday, I found myself in a restaurant, trying to handle my grandson, and seeing a picture on the menu, I ordered a Philly Turkey Cheese sandwich. It was a snap decision, and not what I normally would have ordered. When it came, it looked really good, but it had a big hoagie bun, which would have totally blown my food plan. So, I ate the turkey, cheese, onions and peppers and left the bun. I had a side of cottage cheese with it, and also the broccoli my grandson ordered and then didn't want. So all in all, I had enough to eat without doing too much damage. This week I was bouncing up and down the same pound, but plan to get back to it and start losing again.
