hi - so it has been one week since i 'filed my food' in the fridge. i have to say it is refreshing (no pun intended) to just open the door, grab the labelled day and list - and enjoy.
i also use up everything instead of having little bits left over - some of which may get eaten or tossed.
i mentioned the 'use the same breakfast' as dr. oz commented to relieve the stress of having to think about it every morning.
it saves a ton of time - you can vary the toppings on your toast or grab a different fruit if you need to change it up somewhat.
my deli guy shrink wraps 4oz of my chosen sandwich meats - low sodium, fat free turkey breast is one of my faves - but there are lots -
i just take out one little packet a day - defrost and voila - lunch with a side salad using low carb wraps - delicious but most of all SATISFYING.
i shop the sale items - and i plan week day evening meals - but i take it a little easier on sat and sunday - just to ease up on things a bit and have something of a 'treat' to bring up my spirits.
also - just a suggestion - make sure all the things you use often are handy for you. i have my blender on the counter always at the ready - where as my juicer which i use in the spring and summer mostly - is tucked away for now. you will make yourself more smoothies, or blend fruits etc to use if all you have to do is press the button
anyway - i like this and it is freeing me up to think about other stuff - my scale has not gone down since the two pounds i lost - but i hope by the end of january i will have lost one more pound.
exercise is my real hill to climb (lol you know what i mean) BB
