Quick and Easy

Moderation is key.
I think that I was doing a bad job at that before. I will confess and it may be TMI. I would have at one time 2 bags of popcorn with extra butter lots of butter and several seasonings. I would often have a bag of chips with the popcorn. I would eat other things but when it came to the other things I would do okay.
I would have oatmeal for breakfast or bacon and eggs. for lunch I would eat something like cucumbers in salad dressing or spinach, tomatoes with two sausage and then ruin it all with two bags of popcorn with lots of butter. So, I am just cutting the popcorn. I have lost weight from doing just that and I am confident that I will continue and I am not hungry and I am not trying to eat something like salad because I would rather not eat if the alternative was salad. I can't imagine "eating healthy" all the time it wouldn't be a lifestyle change, because I couldn't keep it up. I have to eat normal food and i cam really happy that it is working that is why i am writing a blog to celebrate being able to eat normal food and lose weight. I measure everytthing out to make sure I am eating only one serving of things and I switched to whole wheat v white and I don't eat any sugray snacks but I could take those or leave those yogurt with fruit is dessert enough for me. this is a change that can last a lifetime.

    Exactly! It’s about making sustainable changes that you can actually see yourself doing for life! Not about depriving yourself or forcing yourself to eat food you don’t like. Do what works for you, and enjoy the journey! Woohoo!
