lesson 2 snack on veggies and fruit

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

today was weigh in day.

i have lost 2.4 lbs in 2 weeks. i also started measuring myself. it doesnt look very good. but it has motivated me to move more and get rid of these inches.

one lesson i have learned and a habit i have formed is to snack on veggies. i have a pretty good routine going if i must say so.
i have a fruit for breakfast, 1 cup of veggies for lunch (which is 2 servings), i snack on carrots and celery and grapes in the afternoon until dinner so i dont get hungry. i usually count this as 1 cup veggies( which is 2 servings), i have 1 cup veggies for dinner( 2 servings) and a fruit for a snack. that is a total of 8 servings. as long as if follow this, i dont seem to be getting hungry

still struggling with nighttime eating habit, but it is getting better.

i am making better choices and saying no more often to processed, sugary foods.

things are looking up!!

    Congratulations on the weight loss.
    Also congratulations on you non scale victory, eating more fruits and veggies. You have worked out a very doable routine to get in your freggies. Well done.
    I find getting in my fruits and veggies actually helps curb my cravings for the "bad" foods. It's all in keeping my nutrition balanced.
    Keep up the great work.

    Great job on the weightloss! And I too have been training myself to snack on fruits and veggies. We all reach for something when we get the munchies, so I think if we start reaching for healthy foods that our bodies NEED then we'd make a lot better progress. Don't look at how far you have to go, just focus on the healthy changes youre making, and stay positive on your journey! Every step in the right direction is one step closer to getting you to achieve your goal! Awesome job!

    Yippee! Way to go on getting a better handle on the food portion of the equation! You are doing fantastic. After all, making better choices one at a time will get you there. Perfection is NOT the goal, progress is and you are making great strides!

    Your body also needs protein and fiber, have you tried greek yogurt? Or string cheese, those both would be great to go WITH some fruit.
    I think your weight loss is amazing, keep pushing girly!
