If you're having problems getting the veggies in, try things that cook down a lot - like spinach. Two cups of spinach sauteed or steamed cooks down to about six bites. Zucchini will cook down a lot too.
Yes I agree...I really am trying and the coach and I are setting mini goals that don't include the scale for me...like if I eat all my food for 2 days I get a reward...I am 4 weeks in and still haven't mastered it but I am trying!

Glad you and your coach are working on it! The reward system is a good idea. Didn't mean to sound preachy - always worries me when someone posts that they aren't eating everything, losing weight is hard enough and to restrict intake even further could lead to some serious health problems. Sounds like you are on the right track. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

If you don't eat enough calories, you will "stall" your weight as your body will hold on to everything it's got thinking you're in starvation mode or something.

Ruth Ann gave you great ideas on how to get those veggies in without bulk. Add the spinach to your shake even. It is NOT as gross as it sounds if you haven't done it yet! LOL

I kind of picture you with your nose plugged, eyes closed, drinking down that greenish brown smoothie, but if that's what you need to do, get 'er dun! I add some "syrups" to my smoothies (DaVinci 0/0/0) if I need more "chocolate fix" or something.

A 'support group' has to give you tough love some times so I hope you take my "nagging" with a as well! Look at your plan today and make a conscious effort to get in what you need -- even if it means the "nose plug and eyes closed" effort from your childhood!

P.S. I posted this before I saw that you were working on this with your coach so I remove some of the nagging (only some). I think the 'reward' idea sounds pretty fun! Let us know what ya get!
