I’ve been fluctuating between 195 and 189. It’s been going on for a few months and it’s very frustrating :( I think I’ve been in a bit of denial though over how much and how well I’m really eating. I do lean towards low carb high protein because of my blood sugar issues. Lately I’ve been eating what I have on hand and eating more frequently. For some reason I’ve been super focused on food? Maybe because I’m eating things I shouldn’t and just not feeling satisfied. I also recognized that as I’ve discovered some great low carb recipes I’m going a little crazy experimenting and overeating.
Today I had to refocus. One thing I did in the past that REALLY helped was making a meal and only eating half of it and saving the other half for a few hours later. This gives me the satisfaction of mini meals without adding extra calories. I’m also refocusing on good protein. I bought a package of chicken, pounded it out, brined it, and prepared it for later meals. I also purchased more fresh veges. I sometimes forget how satisfying cauliflower, cabbage, green beans, etc. are and that I need them to complete my meals.
Sometimes I think I’m not worth the extra money when funds are low. Then I have to look at the big picture and say “Are you not worth a $5 package of chicken???” Sometimes too it’s a matter of making better choices. I may easily spend that money on a lottery ticket (unsure thing!) instead of investing it back into myself. No more excuses!
