Things are going well! Sometimes it is hard to keep on track but I think it is easier because it is summer. Exercise is easier. Veggies are cheaper at the store. I buy lots of veggies and wash and cut everything up so I can use them in recipes or eat as snacks through out the week I find that helps. I have planted a few snow peas we shall see how they grow. I love snow peas for stirfries! And they are generally easy to grow!!
Twenty nine pairs of pants that are too small.
I cleaned out my closet today! Twenty nine pairs of pants that do not fit. They are in various sizes.
Well, at least after I lose a bit of weight, I won't have to go shopping!
Check out my post about clothes HERE.
I live with someone who, no matter what food I make for supper or how much food I make, he always asks one of two questions.
"What are we going to have with that?"
"Is that going to be enough?"
We eat a lot, at least according to average serving sizes.
A big pot of soup isn't complete to him, unless there is chunky bread or a plate of crackers. Any kind of pasta needs to eaten with several slices of bread (which kind of grosses me out, to be honest!) I can make four pieces of chicken with a vegetable and rice............ and he looks and realizes that that means he will get two pieces of chicken and that is not enough for him. Often I will add an extra piece or give him the bigger ones.
I have been trying to use less meat lately, which is cheaper, and more vegetables -making stir fries with rice- which is healthier. And I can cut the meat up smaller, which makes it seem like there is more. If there is salad on the side, it gives the impression of more food. When I am cooking, I try not to fall into the it isn't enough food idea because too much food is what made me fat. I have been so much better lately.
But it really is hard to live with someone who isn't satisfied after meals and ends up making a peanut butter sandwich within 30 minutes of eating.
So back on track after the bit of trouble last week. I don't feel any different with almost twenty pounds lost but I guess that takes time as well. At least I have stayed away from Dairy Queen!!
Two pound weight gain this week which is very discouraging. Not doing anything different. Still exercising. Still eating healthy with smaller portions.
I think I need to cut my carbs a bit as the past 3 weeks I have been eating a few more carbs.
I am trying not to get discouraged.
