Its thursday and I am making my menu out for the day. No thought of doing anything different.
I am just glad I have today to make some good choices. I am trying to eat a lot of vegetables all different kinds. I am enjoying thinking up good things to eat for my husband and I . We have decided not to go out to eat for anything. We loss better when we do. I am eating kale everyday.
I never give it a thought to make a salad out of kale. That's what I'm having for lunch, apiece of salmon, big bowl of kale,spinach, bellpepper, garlic, onion, mushrooms, sauté them add to bowl, small tomatoes, sprite of Bragg amino acid spray, some dressing that the health store makes that is vegan, hot peppers. That is a lot of chewing but you really get satisfied. I'll have snap beans, new potatoes and turnip greens for supper. I will have popcorn and pistachios for a snack tonight. I had oatmeal, honey, almond milk and banana for breakfast. I'll try to work in 1/2 cup of pineapple somewhere today. I try to stay around 1300 calories sometimes 1350 . I know the more vegetables, whole grain, fruits, whole wheat pasta that you will lose and be a lot healthier. I am so looking forward to the transformation that will occur as I stick to eating healthy.
I read somewhere as you lose weight your world gets bigger, you are not taking up so much space. You notice things that you have not noticed before. Isn't that neat? You can sit in any chair and not be afraid of it breaking or you hanging over. You can sit in booths and be comfortable. You can walk through a crowded space and not be all over everyone. You will not be the biggest person in the room. All kinds of things that a person who is not obese does not worry about or even think about. That's what I want and will get.
