Alicia is taking us through the meals to see how they have changed and how they can change as we work on losing the pounds.
I’ve always been a breakfast eater. My dad was big on breakfast and I learned. I am also a bit of a morning person, so my belly is okay with eating early. It is a bit of a challenge that with taking synthroid I have to wait 30 minutes after I take my medication to eat in the morning. Some days, like today, I fail and eat too soon.
When I first started weight watchers I was overdoing my morning eating. I started the day with an instant breakfast shake, then have yogurt and eat my way til breakfast. This was leaving me only 7 points for dinner. Not enough to eat dinner with the family.
Over the last few weeks I have seen it change. I eat a piece of fruit after my morning workout, and then eat a turkey sandwhich when I get to work. I’m still eating a lot in the morning, but more of it is fruit and veggies.
I am not a great tracker, but I know I basically eat the same every morning and lunch and so far the scale is cooperating. I lost 1.2lbs over the last two weeks. I am at 11.6 total lost. NEXT week I really hope to hit 12 lbs, that will bring me to 1/3 of my goal. Sigh, I have a lot to lose…Survive til you Thrive!
