Opening new doors, indeed!
Still working on doing things in a different way, and changing my habits. It's an ongoing process, this changing... and sometimes it's surprising.
Mostly, though, it's just going at it one day at a time - or one hour at a time, sometimes!
I keep plugging away!
The hardest thing is not eating at the computer during my usual chat time, which usually coincides with supper time, and the boys are not really up to changing that time.
Not that I should be eating so much on schedule... and that is something else I have to change. I am also working on eating what I want, when I want it, in very small servings, after checking how hungry I am, and rechecking afterwords for at least 20 minutes before getting seconds if I am still hungry.
I've been craving more veggies. I've been eating lots of them, too! 10-12 servings a day! And so I am filling up on bulky lower calorie foods, as well, which cuts my calorie intake most days. Squash! Yum! I had zucchini four times, one day. I love it!
I had spaghetti squash and a juicy, lean steak for breakfast and still managed to stay around 300 calories.
Tonight I made a lovely low fat soup thick with veggies. Isn't hot soup great when it's cold outside? We've had temps down to 30 degrees at night, here on the edge of the desert. It even snowed and hailed and had ice up around LA a couple of nights ago! Brr... Of course that's nothing compared to the horrible weather in most of the rest of the country. My friend in Baltimore was talking about her stepfather snowshovelling the driveway and the snow was over her head!
