Well, I went over my goal yesterday. I did make progress though and it was only 300 calories instead of 1000! I was still in a deficit for the day, small as it may be, but I kind of consider that a mini-win.
It seems that I am starving so much of the time, and I decided to do things a little differently today. I am going to increase my breakfast and make the rest of the day a little lighter. I'm hoping that if I start off the day feeling full that it will carry me through a greater part of the day. My other problem is middle of the night eating, and I'm not so sure what to do about that. Maybe I just need to limit myself to fruits or something. That's not a bad idea now that I think about it. As long as I keep things cut up and ready I'll have no excuse.
1. Goal is less than 1600 calories/day.
2. Continue logging all food no matter how ugly it gets.
3. Take meds 2x day on time.
4. Weigh & measure everything.
Here's my plan for today:
1/2 C oatmeal, 1 C milk, 3 tsp brown sugar, 2 tsp Stevia, 2 Tbsp raisins
Salad with lite dressing and sunflower seeds
Egg salad (2 eggs, 1 Tbsp mayo, a little mustard, green onion), lettuce, 1 bagel thin
pistachios, strawberries & home made fruit dip, orange, popcorn
Planned calories: 1585
I hope anyone out there who was in the path of the storm has made it through it without too much damage.
Have a great day everyone!
