What is going on with me?

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

This past month has been terrible as far as my weight loss is concerned. And, I know exactly what 1 of my problems is: I am not truthful with my food intake. I have been measuring and logging in the food. However, I don't know how accurate my measurements have been.

I did start taking a look at SP Meal Plan suggestions. I tried leaving it visible on My Nutrition page so that I could choose comparable food items. It seems that my caloric intake is a BIT higher than they suggest. So, I have decided to try and keep my meals at 300-350 calories each and my snacks at no more than 150 calories (don't check today's dinner stats).

I am going to invest in a good cookbook that breaks meals down into 300 and 400 calorie meals. Also I am definitely going to check out the meal planner on SP. I looked at it briefly a few days ago. I will spend some more time getting to know it better. I hope it has a lot of good varieties for meals.

As always, I remind myself that success is not perfection; it is progress. I can definitely see where I need to flip some things and make some changes. I see what is wrong and can see the corrections that need to be made.

My goal for this month is to lose 8 lbs. I got to keep going.

    great blog! Something a lot of us struggle with! My Mom recently got me a 1 year subscription to a magazine called Healthy Cooking-it's put out by the people that make cookbooks I can't remember the name of, I think it's Taste of Home. Anyway-the magazine is FULL of great low cal recipes including some updated healthier versions of old standards like mac & cheese! I highly recommend this magazine if you're looking for some new ways to have good healthy low cal meals!
    Good luck on your journey!!!
