Hey Love, I don't plan my meals anymore. I just have a rule. A RULE!
1 I must eat fruit, whole grains, and some protein in the morning.
2 I must eat veggies, protein and whole grains again around noon.
3 I must eat veggies, protein, and no whole grains at dinner.
I eat 2 servings of fruit before I go to bed at night.

I also repeat "breakfast" I have no problem with repeating breakfast.
It's peanut butter on a 100% whole grain bread, and also 2 slices of apple. I'm getting roughly 5% of fruit in during my breakfast in the morning and 10grams of protein. And a load of "fat" for the morning, and I also take fish oil caps. It's a must do, but I need to find one I do not taste for the first 4 hours of the day. I eat most of my fats during the most active part of the day. Breakfast and Lunch, and then I control my "fat" in the evening. Dinner is a controlled meal. I try not to eat over 8grams of fat during dinner time. It sounds nutty... But I'm trying to lose some of the fat I have on my body, and I do not wish to store or add in any more.

I hope this makes sense to you.
I wish you well, and I'll come back with my so called diet plan.
It's 1400-1800, and I'll share my 1800 days with you. I eat more on my weight training days.

Hey Lady,

Iím so glad you are sparking up a storm. I love having a good time, and we are going to enjoy our summer plans. Doing this in phases is where itís at. You know-Iím running the 60days. And I do mean running. Iím doing my best with my program, and I started off at 207 on Dec-26, and I was not happy with that at all. So, I got busy doing me. My losses became a struggle, and then all at once things started to click. It wasnít about a wedding day, a dress, up and coming event with me. It started to be more about me, and Iím so thankful for the clicks in my head. I felt I was doing this (weight loss) thing for all the wrong reason. I was saying this was for my kids. I was saying this was so this day. I was saying this and that. Then the clicks hit. 1- I didnít want to be this manufactured woman. 2- I didnít like some of the medications I was on, and when the doctor told me.

50 pounds would reduce some of these medications I turned myself on to the fact that I can do this to save not only money, but to get my health back on track. Iím thankful. Iím focus. It took me all of 6 months to drop off 22 pounds, and it really didnít start to happen for me until March Ėbecause after I got down to 196 I hit a freaking wall. I took off running girl in Jan. and when that wall hit. I was like. WTF! Now I got it. Iím moving forward, and Iím so thankful.
I write out my plans monthly, and I go forward. This month plan is to lose 6 pounds, and Iím going to do just that. We got to keep on sparking. Iím working out daily. Weight training 3 days a week; resistance training 2 days a week; rest days weekend only. Then I hit it again. Thatís what we got to do. Steps this thing out, and keep on going for what we know. I wish you all the best girl, and you are going to get that BP under control.
