Yeah Lizzie! Good job!! Keep up the good work. It is nice to hear that your scale is finally showing some new numbers for you.
Renee, don't give up hope yet. You can do this!! Do you keep a food journal to see what you have been eating, and what perhaps you can change in the future? I do from time to time. It helps me see if I have been eating enough/too little, or just balanced meals each day.
Here is an idea for a quick snack. Cut up some fresh fruit and mix in a bowl, chill, and serve with a little greek yogurt.
Renee - You've lost 19 pounds so you know how to do it. That's excellent by the way. Snacking is a problem for me too. Not in between breakfast and lunch but about 3:00 or 4:00 until dinner is a danger zone. I have to work on that bad habit. Like Corinna, sometimes I keep a food diary. I should start logging now anyway because I've been getting acid reflux symptoms.
Whew! It's been a whirlwind of getting settled back in central FL for the winter, plus too many guests and too much family stuff! A bit of a culture shock since our summers in NC are Just Us much of the time...doing what we want, when we want to. After Hubster's birthday tomorrow, we will be able to concentrate on eating better. Even tho we've been able to stick within our 1200 calorie limit for the day, not much loss because of the foods we've been eating....but no gain either. I'll take that!! Starting Tuesday, we will be back on protein, veggies, fruit...and off all the white stuff for a while.
Was fun reading up on everyone's posts....have missed y'all! Let's Keep On Keepin' On, Chicks!!!! We CAN do this!!!! Loved everyone's suggestions for snacking...I love a plum or a handful of grapes. I also keep sugar-free Popsicles and fudgesicles, plus SF FF Instant a Pudding on hand.
I do have some great recipes to share, one that I made last week that's packed full of protein and fiber to offset the calories. It's filling, satisfying and even my finicky granddaughter asks me to make it! I'll find it and a couple others and post them here for you.
I am going to be honest here....at my retreat because of Daytona having little parking where we could eat and go to convention without walking too far my eating for those two days consisted of...
Egg and toast..breakfast
Kirkland nut and seed bar...lunch
Kirkland nut and seed bar...dinner
Only pineapple chunks at dessert reception
Eggs and ww toast for.....breakfast
Pot roast hubby made with veggies fat drained off..dinner
Then normal Sunday and Monday...normal meaning clean eating.....his am I weighed...up 2 lbs..
This is my journey, it seems whether I eat well or not up and down two pounds...I may as well make my goal to just be 169...
Hope to get answers from endrocrinologist...Dec 17, I am feeling better fatigue wise, took a mile bike ride, and oh yes, walked a LOT Saturday as well!
Hi Deelou - I think you changed your thyroid meds some weeks back. I think you switched to natural thyroid? It can take six or more weeks to take effect. When we change my meds I get tested at three months. That's great your fatigue has improved!
Great Renee! Glad you tried it and liked it. I think the flavors mingle better after a day. I have a good kale and white bean soup recipe too. I just can't seem to find it though. Spinach works as a substitute. I will keep looking.
My husband and my dog have both been sick, so I haven't been getting too much exercise. I have been sticking to my diet pretty well.
