Well, Operation Weight Loss Week Two is over. I’ll admit I’ve been a little lax over the last week. I’ve had chocolate chip cookies, lemon pound cake and a few nibbles of banana bread and ice cream. I’m not on a “diet” but I’m trying to pay attention to portion sizes and eat more veggies. I’ve continued to do big salads for lunch with some sort of protein (eggs mostly) in it. Yesterday was an acceptation because I ran out of lettuce. So I just had carrots, broccoli and egg salad (that I somehow messed up but waste not want not) which wasn’t quite as filling as my big ol’ salad. Sadly I stlill don't have any lettuce today so not sure what lunch will be...
I’m all about weight loss not being about restricting yourself to only eat certain foods. Or to only drink meal replacement shakes and cut out all carbs and sweets. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with doing any of those things. I drink a meal replacement shake every once in awhile. But I feel there’s room in your life for all kinds of foods if your eating healthy portions of those foods. During this new weight loss journey I haven’t counted calories and I’ve only measured my foods out a few times. I just don’t have the time or energy for it. I want to be able to have a healthy relationship with food and trust my body to tell me how much I need. To only eat when I’m hungry and not because it’s fun. And to only eat until I’m full and not over-stuff myself because something is yummy and I don’t want to stop eating it. I’ve had unhealthy relationships with food and I’m not going back there.
So with all that being said - are you wondering how things worked out for me?
