Making this a way of life

The scale was up a bit this morning, but I am still down .4 from last Friday. I checked yesterday's log - added a few things I forgot to write down. I am off sugar and have been since February 6. Now it's time to start refining things and finalizing some of my menus. I have gotten a bit lax a bout snacking. My goal now is to limit my eating to 3 meals and 2 snacks. I've also been relying a lot on sugar free chocolate and Atkins bars. I am slowly going to phase those out of my life. The shakes I will probably keep. I need something quick to grab on mornings when I need to be out the door early. I also think I may have a problem with aspartame. When I have a diet pop late in the day I wake up the next morning with a headache. So I have my work cut out for me for the next few weeks.

Have a great day everyone! Spring is peeking around the corner (though you couldn't tell it around here.)


  1. Those snacks sneak in so easily! They are my biggest downfall. If i keep it to my meals and when i snack its fruit or i have a sugarfree pudding with a dollop of Lite whipcream if fruit doesn't nip the sweet tooth. And if i snack it usually not out of hunger,I just want something to munch on. Jinx!

  2. Yeah, hunger has never been the main reason I snack either. Thanks for visiting, Jinx. I hope to catch up this weekend.

  3. Yea try making veggies/fruits or whole grain, natural bars like Larabars or Odwalla bars become your go-to snack> i also use those as breakfast snacks since they are portable and pretty ok for your health. It's good that you're re-evaluating your food goals because that's a sign of growth and commitment to this weight journey. So props!!!
