I have been feeling a lot of anxiety lately because my eating plan has finally dropped below 2000 calories - 1930 at the top end to be exact. I find this very challenging, in fact I'm not making it most days! I am constantly looking for ways to eat a little less, and add more fruits and veg which are more filling for the calories. I'm finding my old go-to snacks are maybe not the best choices, and I'm trying to make better ones. Breakfast is particularly challenging, because I can't eat a 600 calorie breakfast of bacon, eggs, and waffles, or a bagel-wich, if I want to hit that 2000 calorie mark at the end of the day!
But the good news is that the scale surprised me by knocking off another two pounds today, so I am a mere 8 oz away from being officially 50 lbs down! I'm very excited about reaching that mark! And I guess it tells me that whatever I'm eating now isn't so bad, since I'm still losing, but I know to keep going I need to do better.
Changing my eating habits significantly, and for the better, is definitely my biggest challenge right now!
