    Most of us eat the same things most days. You don't have 21 entirely different meals each week. Plan a main course for at least one meal a day and have on hand veggies that will go with most meals. Keep fruit on hand and plan to eat it at least twice a day. Pack some veggies in your lunch and add them to most meals. Plan on your regular breakfast most days.

Those who are most successful tend to eat the same things most of the time and don't get too wild on unusual meals. They are great a couple of times a week but I tend to go over on calories with special meals.

    I had a long explanation done and they said it was over the limit. Well, after I read it, what I said came down to this.

What do you usually eat? Put it down. But be flexible. If you don't feel like what you planned, change it as long as you stay in the same calorie range.

    I have a problem with that as well. I set it as my goal and plan to begin this on Sunday for planning next week. Maybe we can see who can reach their goal weekly by checking in on each other?! I will add you as a friend and see how you do this next week. When do you plan to make your menu?
