Sticking to the plan

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Last week I went to see my nutritionist, Dr. Wray, for the 1st time since starting sparkpeople. When I showed her my nutrition guidelines they set for me, she said they were too restrictive. That's why I was feeling hungry all the time, and why I found myself "grazing" in the evenings. She increased my nutrition guidlines and told me that, any time I felt hungry, fruits/non-starchy veggies/lean proteins were basically "freebies" and to eat those. Since then, I've had no trouble sticking to my menu plan. I don't "graze", and I don't crave sweet or salty unhealthy snacks because I'm getting healthy versions that keep me satisfied. With my new plan, I see myself losing the weight-and maintaining that weight loss!!
I've also started physical therapy and it's been wonderful!! The pain of the arthritis is easing up a little, and I'm able to move more. The fact that I can count the calories burned and the minutes I spend exercising there is a bonus!!
