so i made it to another day, not starving as bad today

Friday, January 18, 2013

Well i think my stomach is starting to get back on track with my new calorie restrictions but it is still growling loudly at me. Someone suggested eating some carbs with protein for snacks , i think that is what i will try. I know i will get past this, but it has been a hard two weeks. All of m y wonderful friends here continue to encourage me and give me support and that is extremely helpful! i am going to blow up my pilates ball today and start doing things while watching tv and also bring out my hand weight so i have no excuses not to exercise even if i am watching a show. I can't wait for the warm weather so i can go and walk outside. My fiance is supportive in my journey, but he has no intentions in changing how he eats even though he is overweight, but i will continue on my journey. I wish he would jump on board, but what am i going to do, at least he is supporting me! emoticon emoticon

    i think i just have to get used to it. I definitely have to snack. I have been eating alot more protein lately and i think that helps. Does eating more often raise your metabolism? well anyhow, he is eating healthier but the portions are always too large. i can't make him do it but he should. Thank you both!

    I've been eating small portions frequently. It helps most days, but this first couple of weeks has been a big adjustment. Cutting back to my calorie range has been a challenge. I try to choose foods that have the most bang and fullness factor for the calorie buck! Drinking water in between eating has helped a lot too.

    If you are the cook, your fiance will benefit without even trying. My husband usually fights me over his right to have what he wants to eat, but he is starting to really enjoy the meals I make. I've been trying out the recipes in here with great success.

    You may already do this, but eating every 2-3 hours (either 5 small meals, or 3 meals and 2 snacks) really helps with the hunger.

    Good luck!
