I've been sticking with the calorie and other limits lately, and am really proud of myself. It was hard last night I admit, I had a severe case of the munchies and wanted to EAT. I did have a treat, but even that did not send me over the edge as far as all my counts. That was a nice feeling.
I've discovered that I am really enjoying kosher dill pickle spears. I look forward to that each night when I have them with dinner (usually). I am not ordinarily a pickle eater, but they just looked so good the other night while I was shopping. Five calories per spear, you can't beat that!
I also have put together a concoction of Yoplait Strawberry yogurt (light of course), 1 cup of frozen blueberries, and 1 cup of Kashi Good Friends cereal. This has been my breakfast for several mornings, and I look forward to it as a treat at night as well.
I did find that I was going overboard on the fiber for a little bit there, and had some resultant digestive issues. So I've backed off of that, have added it to the nutrients that I track so that I can keep an eye on it. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing, I've discovered!
