I'm down in my heart, and up on the scale. 226.8 today. This is only the slightest of gains (0.2), thank goodness. So maybe I'll break through this stupid gain next week. However, it seems official that I need to change my HYC bling to 60 pounds.
Over the past week, I experimented with adding more protein to my diet, to curb cravings. It worked pretty well. Not perfectly, but well. However, I think I have found a new way to be full and healthy. What has 42 grams of fiber, and 48 grams of protein per cup? LENTILS! I have the most delicious recipe from the Barefoot Contessa, and so I brought that for my lunch this week. Lentils, carrots and tomatoes. Sounds yucky, but if you like lentils it is fabulous. I ate it yesterday, and wasn't hungry until dinnertime. And that is the most important feeling for me.
This week will pose a challenge, my in-laws are coming to visit. They are not in the habit of eating the most healthy of diets, so I'm trying to think of meals that will appeal to them, but also not deter me. I don't think Lentils will be on the menu.
And my NSV this week, I journaled my food every stinking day. Hurray! I rarely stayed close to 1500, but I think that's not going to be a realistic intake for me right now. And that's okay.
Hope everyone had a great week! I know Diana did - wahoo! Go congratulate her on breaking through her plateau. And it seems that she was having the same problem I am - gaining on limited calories. So fascinating
