Yesterday was a good day. I had my Medifast meals. I made on-plan meatloaf for dinner with veggies. I stayed *pretty much* on plan, but not 100%, because I had half and half in my coffee. That can be a fat serving on Medifast, but only if your protein is quite lean. Ground beef does not call for any additional fat in the day. So, that was technically off. I also had a bite of mashed potatoes. This kind of eating CAN result in weight loss for me, just based on the calories alone; I had about 1200 calories yesterday. But it is not what I am aiming for. My goal is 100% on plan and my goal is to not mess around even with a BITE of off plan food. Why? Because it matters to me. It's not just the weight loss I am after. It's about self discipline... sticking to something because I *decided* to. I have been lacking in that aspect lately. I have been going by how I *feel* or by what other people put in front of me or by what is going on in my life. Because, you know, if I am stressed I should get a "pass" to eat a little extra or something. Well, I don't like that attitude in myself. If I am going to get to goal this year (and that is my aim), I have to be more disciplined and tell myself to suck it up more often.
My short term goal is 100% on plan today. No little divergences *even if* I could rationalize them.
My long term goal is 100 days, 100%.
Breakfast was black coffee and a cup of Medifast hot cocoa.
Midmorning I will likely have hot plain tea and a pancake.
My lunch is already 'soaking' in a Thermos: Medifast chili with 1/4 c diced tomatoes added.
Afternoon snack, probably more hot cocoa.
Dinner is spaghetti squash lasagna, which is thawing in the refrigerator and was slightly short on the Green portion, thus the ability to add tomatoes to my chili.
Evening snack will be Medifast pudding.
One perfect day.
