Good day to all of you. Thanks for coming back and I do appreciate your support!
4am – I tried the GoLean cereal with fat free milk. The milk tasted like water but that is not a surprise. The cereal was actually quite good and I would recommend it. It definitely has some substance to it!
7am – Almonds and a couple slices of low sodium deli turkey breast.
9am – grapes
11:15 – Lunch- funny how a lunch like this is starting to feel normal and is quite enjoyable! From dinner last night I cooked up an extra chicken breast and ate that plain as is. I also had a boiled egg and some strawberries. You won’t find too many restaurants offering up that combination as a lunch plate!
2:00 – Cashews
6:00 – For dinner I actually had to eat normal people food for fear of losing all assimilation into my family unit! 🙂 I had some lean red meat, corn and a baked potato with light margarine. Anyone know of any other substitute for the margarine? I think that I’ve heard of some butter flavored powder or something like that? Any other ideas are welcome.
General thoughts at the end of day #9:
I am eating well and I can say that I am never hungry. If anything I have to force myself to eat on occasion.
There are infinite possibilities for menu selection if you have plenty of healthy ingredients.
I find that I am very much in the routine now and comfortable with this new eating style.
It does take some preplanning in shopping, preparation, packaging and eating schedule. I do think that is what makes this a successful effort in that for once I am actually thinking about what I am stuffing into my pie hole! No more instinctive eating!
Scared to death thinking ahead to the next weigh-in fearing that week one was a fluke.
For anyone reading this that needs to change their eating habits please take that walk with me.
