I've been trying to observe myself along this journey to learn how BEST to achieve my goals and maintain the weight loss.

I've noticed more things...

I don't eat much (in quantity) I usually stop half way full. The issue is that sometime it's high calorie foods so even when I eat HALF it's still more than I need to eat.

I have got to keep working on not eating fast foods. I'm getting better at resisting urges to eat fast food out of convenience but... it takes constant reminders on my part.

I am studying for boards... this will probably be a higher stress time for me so I have to plan ahead and STICK TO MY PLAN

I am going to have to make a meal plan the day before even when I don't feel like it. It's too easy to grab something else, even if I count the calories, and end up eating more than I want...

Also, if I get a craving (which happens when I think "I'd like PfChangs, or mmmm pizza sounds yummy, etc) I will remember that I CAN have the food but NOT if it's not on my plan for the day. I don't have to be this strict forever but I want to see results, so I'm going to do what I have to do.

    Good idea Nellie!

    I used to eat Lean Cuisines ALL the time... but then, I started worrying about the sodium. But, truthfully... they can't be any worse than fast food. I'll go buy some tomorrow.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Ever since I read a comment by one of the SP coaches that some frozen meals actually are nutritious, I have been using Lean Cuisine meals and Healthy Choice meals. In fact to get enough calories, sometimes I have to supplement them. They are great for someone who doesn't want to take the time to cook a whole meal, plus, I live by myself, so are also very convenient!
