1. I forgot to eat before going shopping - haha thus the fire-roasted red peppers, the licorice and the chocolate and the pudding.

2. I really need to do less so I have air and not rush when I eat. I think thats part of why I'm so hungry. I am rushing. S L O W mindful eating ~ most times I have to think about it. It comes natural on VERY few occasions.

3. I need to quit white potatoes. I am looking at alternatives besides yams and sweet potatoes. I am thinking of alternating with peas, possibly jicamas, maybe rice bread, and ezekiel bread and maybe some milllet/quinoa.

Also, am considering starting to eat my lunches with no substantial startch.

4. I am trying to be forgiving of myself and just accept that my pcos body just doesn't function like everyone elses. It needs a lot more care and rehabilitation, etc.

So those are my updates. right now I am still more or less at 221.6 to 222.0

I think I need to give myself .5 for 3 weeks. sort of depressing really how slow my progress is.

    I have a friend who suffers with PCOS, and i know how hard it has been for her to keep her weight stable, how much more difficult she found it to lose weight. You are doing well from what I can see, so be kind to yourself and remember you are facing additional challenges.

No matter what I read, no matter who has written it, when talking about the best, most lasting method of losing weight and keeping it off (the hardest part), all the articles say the same thing - losing weight slowly is giving your body time to adapt to your eating plan, and allowing your mind to adapt to it as well.

Good luck with your low starch lunches - I found I was more satisfied and wasn't hungry until dinnertime when I had a combination of some protein with either salad or cooked low carb vegetables for lunch, than when I may have eaten the same thing with bread, in a roll, or with potato. I hope it works as well for you.

    Oh thanx. I geuss I should be happy as I've maintained my 20 pounds weight loss for probably 6 months now. so that part is good.

But yes slow is easier to maintain than 50 or 100 pounds in one year.

    Agree with BonnieMargay. Start tracking your loss in a datebook or on a calendar and you will be able to see your progress. Slow and steady wins the race! emoticon

    Slow and steady is a sign of excellent health. Rapid weight loss would mean that something was terribly out of balance. Wishing you great success!
