OK, I need to get serious if I'm ever to get anywhere with my progress. I have decided to record what I consume also. I realize I need a lot of work and will appreciate all of the constructive criticism and suggestions you all can offer up. TIA


01/05/06


breakfast: 2 slices white toast with peanut butter, probably a half pot of reg coffee with fat free french vanilla creamer


lunch: lettuce, a little shredded sharp cheddar cheese, a few honey almond sprinkles, tuna mixed with reg mayo and relish, lite ranch and lite french dressing all mixed together.


snacks. I did drink 64ozs of water.... 1 100 calorie peanut butter cookies snack pack, 1 100 calorie Pringle snack pack, YIKES 2 chocolate covered oreos. I baked flour tortilla shell in strips with a little extra virgin olive oil and parm cheese sprinkles and basil sprinkles so I had some with the salad and snacked a few more times on them as well.


Heres where I feel the most guilty.... We took kids to Pizza Hutt. Youngest dd earned a free personal pan pizza for December reading soooooooo here goes


dinner: half glass of raspberry iced tea, salad consisting of lettuce, shredded cheese, real bacon pieces, frenches onions, croutons, ranch and french dressing. Pretty small salad though in my mind because no fat free or light dressing on the salad bar. 3 pieces of meat lovers pan pizza topped with the shredded cheese that they offer.


That just about did it. I am still nursing my 3mo baby so I don't want to really

Thanks so much for the input Sue. I do really apreciate it. I am just sooooo used to eating anything I wanted when I wanted when I was pregnant so, as you will see below, my appetite is going to be tough for me to control. I always feel hungry. I do impulse snack BTW and I think that is ruining my efforts. We go out to dinner probably 1x week. Sometimes, maybe 2x month we do order out during the week due to me being just too tired to figure something out to cook. ..

Breakfast: 2 slices of peanut butter toast. I was mindfull of how much this time :) Same 1/2pot coffee with the fat free creamer.


Lunch: lettuce with low fat lunch meat, turkey, about a slice, 10 peperoni rounds, real thin, a few honey almonds, shredded sharp cheddar cheese and lowfat ranch and catalina dressing,


Snack: reduced fat pringles, about 1/5of a reg size can, af few of baked flour tortilla shells with the EV olive oil on them, I ate the last chocolate covered oreo, I think that was yesterday, I need to start writing this down. I WILL NOT buy those things again... SCARY 100calories a piece....Tostitos and salsa too.


I drank and drank the water, one 9oz bottle at the time. :)

Cyndi ~

After my second child was born, I also wrote down everything I ate in the day. It helped me to see what I needed to cut back on. I noticed that I did a lot of impulse eating too. My mom gave me an idea that seemed to help. In the evening after dinner if I felt hungry, I would have a cup of hot tea with Splenda in it. It helped me to feel full and then I didn't want to snack on anything. It's not as good as a chocolate covered Oreo, but you will get past the craving after a few days of not giving into it.

Good luck and try to cut back on those snacks that contain empty calories!

thanks Sue. I didn't realize how those worked. If you know where a simple carb list would be found please steer me the right direction.


I just returned from the grocery BTW and looked at lots of labels.... The coffee creamer I bought was 1g carb

Simple carbs are anything that contain white sugar or is processed (like containing white flour instead of wheat flour.)
