This was a good week. I lost three pounds and I'm getting the hang of measuring my food and understanding what portions really mean. I'm also slowly figuring out how to balance my own needs with my calorie/fat intake. There were a couple of days this week when I constantly felt hungry but I started upping my protein and carb intake and that seemed to help. I'm realizing that if I walk that day, that I have to eat on the higher end of my calories rather than the lower end. I'm making a lifestyle change and I want this to be something I can live with for the rest of my life. I can't live with hunger. It makes me feel panicky and anxious. I already have depression and anxiety issues, I do not need to add more to the mix!
I'm kind of anxious about next week because of Thanksgiving. I'm heading to my Mom's on Monday and I don't know if I'll be able to walk as often as I do at home. She also makes an amazing Chocolate Cream pie that I'm not going to say no too! LoL I'll just have a smaller slice and cut it in two so I can actually have it twice instead of just once! :)
