Been watching Dr. Oz again!!!
Last Friday I was watching his show and he described me perfectly! Eat all day!!
I eat my meals, then snacks, snack some more, snack some more, and on and on. You may get full but that craving continues. You keep eating but never satisfied!
Dr. Oz suggestion - Pea Protein Powder Shake. This is day 2 for me and I really do feel full....to my surprise! Yesterday, I did pretty good. I couldn't sleep last night, which is not unusual for me. I was up until 5:00 am this morning so around 1:30 am - 2:00 am I started getting the munchies. Well, I was 14 hours past the time I had my last protein shake. Maybe I should drink another one if I'm up past 12 hours from the last shake. Today, so far so good. I have had that full feeling most of the day and no cravings! Haven't deviated from my meal plan once.
My nutrition reports have indicated that I am low in protein levels. Maybe these shakes are what I need. At times, I have felt out of control!! Especially, in-between meals and late at night.
I'm just mixing the powder with water and it really doesn't taste bad. I have the vanilla flavor. Well, I'll try this for awhile & see how I do......keep you posted!!
If your drinking Pea Protein Powder shakes, let me know how you're doing?
One day I'll be able to do this emoticon pose!

I had no idea how many calories there are in a KFC meal! SMH! I ran around all day Wednesday, let myself get toooo hungry and tired. Stopped by KFC on the way home, ate ALL of it! I always save my wrappers/boxes/containers from the day until I can log what I ate in food tracker. When I finished adding dinner on, I was shocked!! Dinner alone was over 1000 calories! What?!?!
When I reflect back on what I use to eat, Lord, I must have consumed 3000 calories easily on some days! Big breakfast (bacon, eggs, grits, toast with jelly and oj), Lunch (BK whopper meal w/cheese), and dinner (General Tso with Fried Rice) and Trix for snack. What in the world was I doing to myself. Eating myself into a heart attack!!
SMH! I have got to do some more reading and learn what to eat when I'm out & about so I won't do this anymore. My brain quickly defaulted back to old habits/food choices on my way home. I could have stopped and got a Zaxby's salad and it probably would not have been over 1000 calories!! I've got to STOP, THINK and make better choices.
Now that KFC will probably cost me a pound or two. I did workout but I don't know....it may have been in vain. The scale will tell.
I always enter my food in the tracker regardless if I stay on plan or not so I can see what my food choices cost me. I think my dinner choice cost plenty today!!

LHM!! Got on the scale this morning and to my surprise, I had dropped another 1.4 lbs!
I tried something different yesterday after reading some of the blogs and articles. Everyday I run the nutrition reports to see how I have done for the day. Everyday since I have started logging what I eat, I have been low in either calories, protein, carbs, potassium, everything EXCEPT sodium!! I've also had cravings. So yesterday, I increased my calories, lowered sodium, and increased my fitness minutes! I also started following the Chair Exercise fitness routine for the week. Tried different CORE exercise videos. It was harder than what I thought. I was sweating by time I finished. Plus, I walk my dog 2x a day. Made that walk a little longer yesterday, I guess this is what I needed to do, change up the routine and nutrition.
I will continue this new routine for the remainder of the week & see where I end up at on the scale. I have to get a tape measure too.
I'm getting closer to 240! Yeah!
Everyone have a great day!!

I still have a long way to go but after reading INDYGIRLS blog yesterday, it got me to thinking about maintenance. After I put in all the effort and hard work to loose all this weight, then what? God forbid if I should in any form gain any of this weight back. I hope to be cooking all my meals by then and become Top Chef of my kitchen.
I do have something I want to do once I meet my goal.......I want to go on a tour of the Holy Land and see the pyramids! That will be my treat to myself! When I get back to work, I will start saving for it. My church is going next year but I'm afraid I will not be physically able to handle the walking......too much weight on these knees.
Right now, I feel so good and happy! Praise God! I've let go of some things and feeling great!
Have a great week! One day I will be able to do this emoticon pose!

Well, I'm still fighting to regain the focus that I've seem to have lost. I stayed focused long enough to loose 46 lbs. I moved and during that move I started veering off my meal plan. I've been fighting to get back on course ever since. One week I'm good, the next week I'm eating everything under the sun. I've been up & down the scale for 2 months now.
But I know what the problem is. What the real problem is behind this. I've been trying to have this long distance relationship and I haven't heard from him in almost a month. I'm hurt! I've been on emotional binges ever since his calls stopped coming. I'm really trying to fight through this. It's hard. I thought that maybe if I let some of this out, maybe I can get some relief and get back on track. Next week has to be better.
