Food plan is elusive

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

I have been a failure at the food plan.
I have been eating the way I eat for so long, it is difficult to change
I am eliminating the things I should not eat.
I have a way to measure and weigh my food.... something I do.
I post my food, even if I cheat.
But trying to eat the things on the monthly food plan just takes more than I am able to deal with.
Sometimes the items on the menu are more expensive than other choices just as nutritious and on sale or on special. ( though I am resisting the three packages of keebler for the price of two.
) I seldom go to the middle of the store. Shop the fresh vegetable and fruit department but not so much they spoil before I eat them. And I am eating breakfast, which I really have to force myself to do. But I do not always want to eat what is up for that day. Or I do not have all the ingredients cuz hubby ate what ever I need two days before. I mean it is his house too.
So I am just going to try the old pick your food system that was in place when I first got into Spark. I am mentally ready to be the really attractive woman that I have kept hidden all these years... I won't even wear makeup.
Does anyone else find the, "OMG you look so good"! intimidating?

    I don't use the food plans...I try to eat in a balanced manner with plenty of fruits and veggies.
    I haven't worn make-up for years - my first husband didn't care that much for it, and I'm grateful that my fiance doesn't either.
    I DO color my hair though.

    I truly don't care if other's think I look good, thin, young, etc. As to your food plan, pick what best suits you and tweak it for healthier.

    Yes I did at first but since I'm closer to my goal I'm ready and on the days I feel good I put on makeup
    As for meal planning that's getting better but still hard!
    Just keep trying then hubby will replace your food because he will like that hot mama!
