At this point it seems as if nothing is going "right" in my weight loss because for three weeks of eating OP and not cheating except for 1 poptart the scale has only gone up and down within 2 lbs. It has been frustrating and challenging for me not to just say "F@*#^ it" and just eat what I want. This is my old mentallity of giving in when the scales don't move in cooperation with my eating. But something is different this time and I know it, I am actually saying and being truthful and it is presidented: I have only had 1 poptart. No cokes, no candy, no cakes (other than a WW treat now and then) no binging on carbs no, nada, nothing...for 58 days I have eaten fruits, vegetables in all sorts of ways, lean meat and whole wheat for the majority of the time. I am not having problems with acid reflux quiet as bad. I am exercising 2 to 4 times a week. I am drinking more water. I follow the 29 points I am allowed each day on WW and rarely dip into the weekly extras. I watch my portion sizes and try and measure everything correctly. So I guess I am doing many things RIGHT now that I was not 58 days ago and maybe I just need to turn LEFT a little bit and tweek things. I don't know...but I do know I am not quitting.
I have been thinking about the price of food and gas and ways I can budget better. I am finding it is very hard to eat healthy and save money. Fruits and vegetables are very expensive right now and I am constantly returning to the grocery to make sure I have everything I need to stay OP. I looked through the pantry, fridge and freezer last night then sat down and came up with as many meal plans as I could using things I have. I made a small list that I will need to go and get to follow this plan then I hope to stay out of the grocery except for bread and milk and maybe a little something my son needs. I made a list of Breakfast Ideas, Lunch and Dinner Ideas, and Snack Ideas and finalized with Extras for Jacob.
