Doing a little better

Sunday, March 31, 2019


I'm happy to say I have lost a little in the past 4 weeks of a challenge I'm in with the RV Enthusiasts. Just a little but I'm happy with the arrow going emoticon

I'm always coming up with a new scheme, it seems. This time I'm only eating between the hours of 1 and 9 p.m., and staying under 1200 calories. I know, I know, breakfast is supposed the be the most important meal of the day, and breakfast-eaters lose more weight, but if I eat early on, I graze for most of the rest of the day. By 1, I'm *really* hungry. To keep from gobbling snacks, I rely on my higher power. I make a promise, and ask for help which is something I should be doing anyway.

I'm seeing my family doctor at the end of April and she's ordered a bunch of tests to see if there's anything metabolically off with me. Probably not, but...

I want to thank my teams, RV Enthusiasts and Change is Good, for their help in keeping me on track.

    We all have to figure out what works for us. Good to hear you’ve got a doctor visit scheduled.

    Carol - just seeing the scale move and specially in the right direction is a happy feeling!!! emoticon emoticon

    It took me years to learn to eat breakfast - now that I'm retired my goal is to try to eat something at least by 11 am or until I'm hungry - all of us are different - when I was working or if I have to go to somewhere in the morning - I can't eat but something very small or it will upset my stomach.

    Your doing great!!

    Awesome, Carol! You are doing a wonderful job. I for one can't go without my breakfast but lunch is something that never gets thought of until 2-3 PM and it's kind of late to eat then as we like to eat dinner about 5 PM. Lots of activities begin at 6:30 PM.

    About the breakfast thing - we are all an experiment of 1.

    If that schedule is what works for you, do it and ignore the "experts" who insist that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Or you can call it "breakfast" as that is what if is, you are breaking your overnight fast. The food you eat does not have to be "traditional" breakfast food, eat what you like and is healthy for you. It seems to me that you have worked out a schedule that works best for you.

    Carry on!!
