I think it is ironic that I had a spelling error in the last post title. Cause maybe "Thins I like" would be a more appropriate title for this post.
I am back on My Fitness Pal (web and iphone) tracking my food and exercise. I am twohandsfull on there if you chose to friend me. Initially it started as a way to track what I was eating and see if I could make some better choices. I mentioned it to a few co-workers who decided to log on and now we are supporting each other online and off with chats and lunch hour walks. Slowly I have started to shrink my portion sizes back to something more reasonable and even though I have yet to weigh myself I think I have started to lose a bit. I do know that I feel better, I think the daily walks are helping my mood.
That being said I am hungry. And I don't like it. One of the things this had highlighted for me is my choices for food. My portions were so big I was stuffed after lunch. I would eat an afternoon snack even if I wasn't hungry (bored). It has only been a few days that I have been more restrictive with my food and I see holes in my diet. I need to bring some raw veggies for snacks. I need to drink more water. I need to be prepared so I don't attack the candy machine or jump on the tray of left over deserts from the exec meeting. I know my system will gradually adjust to this diet and I won't feel as hungry. That is what happened for me last time anyhow. 7 years ago I was on WW and I lost 40lbs. I only have 20lbs to lose but for some reason I expect it to be harder this time. I am not as committed as I was that time. Not as desperate. But I want it. And hopefully the support of my real and online friends will keep me going.
