I weighed myself yesterday - 144. I'd like to lose 10 pounds. I've definitely been overeating lately in the evening (coconut milk ice cream made with dates and cocoa powder), but not binging though, so that's progress. I haven't gained weight recently, but not losing either, which I want to do. And my energy levels have been pretty low.
I had a consultation with an RD who's connected with the Whole9 folks. She gave me some great input on my eating and I think it's going to help. Now I have to get used to it.
I had been eating part of a sweet potato with breakfast and she said that it was setting me up with sugar cravings for the day. And I was eating fruit with lunch and dinner and she said if I want fruit then I need to have it as part of a snack with fat and protein. So, I can still do my banana "soft serve" after dinner with the magic shell if I want, but I have to eat some protein with it. She also said I can do one or two treat meals a week. Since I'm doing this for the Hashimoto's, it has to be within my allowed foods, but once I'm past that it can be whatever I choose. And no more coffee. :(
