Some of the more boring posts on my blog are where I write down what I am eating. I don't do it often, but when I am making changes or trying a new plan I do like to have a record of what I had and how it's going. It's very helpful for me to look back and see what I have done and the results.
So if you don't like reading menus and boring stuff skip this one, but if you have any feedback on my menus yesterday and today I welcome it. I don't usually ask for menu feedback but I am open to input right now because I have no set plan and really don't know what I am doing besides trying to eat less, fewer carby foods, and using what I have (CSA box, frozen pastured meats, fresh fish, and a box of protein bars and shakes and such).
Morning: black decaf coffee, iced coffee with a little cream and sugar free vanilla, 3 protein bites (kind of like mini protein bars, 7 in a serving) Was in a hurry to get things done and get on the road for a medical trip.
Lunch (on the road, restaurant): salad made of mixed greens, cucumbers, cabbage, carrots, black olives, and blue cheese with crumbled bacon and a sliced hard boiled egg on top. Ranch dressing on the side, used maybe a tablespoon.
On the drive home: Starbucks iced tea granita with half the syrup.
It's almost 6:30 and I am about to drink a big glass of water, steam a bowl of fresh local broccoli, and top it with a melted slice of American cheese. That's dinner.
If I get hungry later I will have something small like a few cherries, almonds or sliced turkey breast.
I am 38 years old, female, a degree-holding stay-at-home-mom, and I weigh 278 pounds. I have been obese for ten years now. Time to get out of this fat prison I have made for myself.
--This is the original introduction I wrote when I first started this blog in 2007. I leave it as a reminder to myself of where I came from. Currently, I am 46 years old and weigh significantly less...see the blog for details. I lost 103 pounds, then had a partial regain, and am once again working at weight loss and better health.
