Planning increases the odds of you succeeding!

Monday, October 28, 2013

I dropped a pound and went to a family event yesterday.

This works for me- 90% of the time- eating exercises

I learned this from Joel Fuhrman- if it is an event or dinner especially; I eat right before I go- I will have a half pound of fresh non-high calorie vegetables like tomatos, celery, peppers, lettuce. Then I have an apple on the way.

It is much easier to control impulses if you are not famished! You really have made the decisions about what will go into your mouth ahead of time.

It is easier to have one of those…….. that are so good, but you should have only one. I drink less too.

"My goal is to be 192 by my Doc appointment in Nov. which would be an overall 40# loss since 2012.
BP 122/69 resting HR 52"

10/28--- 192.2 # BP 116/66/52 hey with no meds doc!

    emoticon You are so right, skipping meals leaves you famished and vulnerable to anything you can find to eat. If you have diabetes you should not go longer than 5 hours without food (exception, of course, is overnight).

    Thanks for the tip. I tried that yesterday, but I couldn't resist that pound cake at church. Usually I do pass on desserts, but I didn't eat enough before the luncheon.
