2. How will I do that (develop the habit of staying in my calorie range)?
How WILL I do that? There are a few things I can do, I suppose. I can log my calories before I eat them...I think this is a biggie. It really helps when the 5% Challenge is staying in-range.
I can also do the math and figure out how many calories I can have at each meal and snack and plan around that. It seems like so much work, but it's less work than continuing to gain weight and agonize over it.
I also need to give up cereal. I love cereal, but my favorite is Frosted Mini Wheats and they're too caloric. If it's not here, I won't eat it.
I am also having the biggest problems at night. I pre-plan everything at work really well, but once I'm home, I'm like a squirrel, digging up everything to eat it. I have to stop it. Maybe veggies ready for that reason...pre-plan those, too.
