I have added some good habits. I never ate breakfast until I was diagnosed with the Ulcerative Colitis. I had to eat breakfast to take my meds. My breakfast was always a bagel with cream cheese or frozen pancakes everyday as I had to stay away from grains. Then, I got healthier and changed to eggs. I always use the healthy eggs with the vitamins. I also had 2 turkey sausage links and one piece of American cheese. About 3 weeks ago, I discovered oatmeal and that has become my go to breakfast. I use the low sugar or weight control and add flaxseed,and raisins. I have that with a glass of 1% milk. I am surprised at how much I like it. I tried eating the turkey sausages a couple of days ago and they were really salty.
I have become really aware of salt as I never add it to anything. Last night we had low sodium cream of mushroom suit and it actually tasted good. It used to taste so bland. I have become very aware of what I am eating. I hope I can keep it up in Vegas. I am going to bring some packets of oatmeal so I can eat it before we go out for the day.
As I wrote yesterday, I have become addicted to my treadmill. Out of bed and onto the treadmill. I cool down with walk it out.
I was so pleased that I lost 1.5 lbs this week and that was on both scales. As soon as my January challenge is done, I will officially only use the Aria.
One other thing I learned is that you can eat anything in moderation. It was my daughter's 17th birthday. We had a cake for her and I had a small piece of it.
It all comes down to what comes in vs. what goes out. I am learning a lot on my journey.
