trying to inspire myself into keep going. I have eaten dinner out two nights in a row, but tonight we had salmon and steamed califlower. There was no salt added to any of it and it tasted so good. That last sentence is so weird to say because keeping track of what I eat and my sodium intake has been a challenge. I crave salt. I want to add "just a little bit" to everything. My retaining water is getting a little better so I know that low sodium is helping me. Also I have not had a soda for a week now. Yeah me! Portion size is also something I am working on. Anyway, no salt is a good thing.
One other thing that I am having trouble with is deciding what I want to eat. Nothing seems to taste good. Sometimes I don't even want to eat, or if I want to eat it is Ice cream, cookies, brownies or some other forbiden food. I guess I miss the foods I used to eat to cover my stress or foods that made me feel good or that I think make me feel good. What are some ways you handle stress eating? or when you want to "cheat" what do you do to not cheat? ANY IDEAS WILL BE VERY HELPFUL. PLEASE LET ME KNOW
