Haven't been really working to hard staying on no s this week but finding that I pretty much am sticking to it without really trying. Did have a couple of brownies today but overall am eating less by snacking less. I have started eating an apple around midafternoon as if I don't I am starving by the...

Today was a red day...big potluck for lunch at work today...ate seconds and sweets! Didn't have much for dinner though....I really need to get on a decreased calorie regime or I am never going to lose weight! I just don't seem to be able to quite get there yet. Maybe next week...

I think eating fruit with your meal is great...I would get away from calling it "dessert". For me to think of it as part of my meal and what fits on my plate is the key to the three meals. Sometimes I eat an apple as part of my dinner and eat it while I am cooking as I am sooop hungry. I count it on...

Fridays are my tough ones!

Friday seems to be my day I have the most trouble sticking to my plan. I think it is because they bring snacks over from the cookhouse on fridays and I don't get me morning cup of soup so I tend to go for whatever they bring over which usually is breakfast foods, fried chicken and this week it was p...

blew it today...breakfast was healthy (and early!) oatmeal/flax with a dash of cinnomon and soy cream. Mid morning cup of soup (I count this as a scheduled mini meal as it is fresh home made daily, tons of whole garlic cloves, veggies, maybe a little meat or chicken and tons of broth.)

Ref: hot flashes

What I find is that if I don't overeat or have really heavy or spicey foods I have hardly any hot flashes. If I eat a heavy meal I can pretty much count on having a hot flash or two in the next hour or so. I'm still struggling to keep my meal portions down and healthy. Rex

What I have learned this last 21 days is that I can live without snacking or sweets. I won't starve to death between meals. I haven't lost any weight because I am putting to much calor...

I am in the same boat. I think for some reason I am afraid I may get too hungry between meals. I usually am hungry in the evenings and it certainly isn't something I can't deal with so I'm not sure why I feel I have to eat 3 healthy sized meals. They fit on my plate but I either need to go down to r...

I'm on my second week and really finding this is a great eating plan. I was so use to having those healthy snacks (always planned for two a day) I never got hungry.

I started on Monday and so far it is going pretty good. I am hungry between meals but that is ok. I am going to do the 21 days then weigh in. Hopefully a couple of pounds will be gone!
