Today I weighed in and logged a 3 pound loss. I feel wonderful! And Im thinking... its easy to feel good about being on a diet when you see the pounds going away, but how can I keep up this good feeling when I hit a plateau? I have always encountered a period when my weight loss stops for a while. I have so much poundage to lose that I really need to see the pounds continue to drop. sighs... well for now all I can say is Im committed to this program. And Im committed to working on my home made fast foods. That project is going so well! The jars of goodness (as I like to call them) give me the portion control I need to adhere to and also... I know whats going into my body. I know since I made these meals, that they will contain the least amount of salt and the most whole grains and veggies I can muster up mister... sister.... Today Im off to the store to purchase more of the 4 oz size so I can make a bunch of whole grain muffins and perhaps low fat desserts as well. This time the muffins will go on the shelf. The process of putting on the lids right as they come out of the oven will cause them to seal and stay fresh. Im hoping! I will keep an eye on the jars over time and if I see the seal is no longer sucked down, then Ill not eat the muffins and go back to freezing them instead. My husband likes to take the jars for lunch out the night before to pack for his lunch, so that they will microwave quicker. He asked if I could store the muffins and breads on the shelf for convincingness. Ill let you know how that works out for us. In the meantime Im going to congratulate myself on a job well done with the 3 pound loss. And hope that when the time comes where I dont lose a pound despite doing everything right, I will remember to step up my exercise and continue to move forward.
