Hi Pam! Thanks for responding
I love how Dr. Beck suggests a diet coach so we have someone to be there for us on our journey. I am looking for someone to keep me accountable for my challenging days, someone to support me when I stray, someone to help keep me motivated, and be my cheerleader! As far as the weight I am happy with 1.5-2lb loss a week and I've been working hard to keep that while I'm deployed (I'm in the military). I should hopefully reach my goal weight in the last two months I'm here, so I'll be adding calories when I get home to maintain.
Well, I have a challenge tomorrow already. I have to fly for 10 hours on the plane and I just sit in my seat the whole time. The problem is I'm thinking about eating the whole 10 hours. My crew eats cookies (otis spunkmeyer...YUM), pizza, and egg rolls (all cooked in our oven) and it makes it really hard to not eat. I bout pumpkin seeds (low in sodium) to help keep my mouth busy, and a protein bar (healthy sweet hopefully) to distract me from the cookies. I hoping to stay within 1400 cals tomorrow. We'll see...I'll report how I did!
Thanks, and I look forward to our journey together! Also, what do you need me to do for you?
