OK, I'm scale obsessed at the moment. But that's because I'm at my losing time of the month AND I have a new nifty scale. The interesting this is that this morning's weigh-in brought me to 260.8 which is even closer to what I had been guesstimating on my crappy scale yesterday morning.
Yesterday was a pretty good day. Planning a menu for the day really helps. I still don't always get everything I plan down. Yesterday I never had my afternoon snack. Another note about my eating yesterday. I think that when I have a bigger more protein filled breakfast I don't want to much as much the rest of the day. I know I've read articles about that, but its interesting to see that it's true.
Last night I made a high fat meal for dinner. It was yummy. I'm aloud to have high fat meals. But I prefer they be made from real ingredients and that I have one reasonable portion. I even turned down the kids leftovers on their plates. Go me!
Oh, and a big accomplishment for me yesterday... After my protein rich breakfast I wasn't feeling hungry for lunch. In fact I had forgotten to eat lunch. I went to leave for Wal-Mart at close to 1 p.m., had my keys in hand and all. Then I realized I hadn't had lunch and going grocery shopping hungry would not be good. I didn't want to take the time to make the salad I had on my menu. So I took out three big romaine leaves, some cherry tomatoes and the leftover salmon. I wrapped some of the salmon and the tomatoes in the lettuce leaves and ate them. It saved time AND salad dressing calories to boot. On top of that I was able to stick to my list at the store and only buy healthy items. I even made it past the crunch-n-munch at the checkout. One of my weaknesses is to buy a box of crunch-n-munch at the checkout and have it eaten by the time I get home.
Definitely making progress! Yeah!
