Yesterday the scales were up another 0.2 lbs. I was so frustrated and angry on Wednesday, and when the scales were up again Thursday, I knew it was time to take a long hard look at my eating. I eat the same thing Monday through Friday for the most part. I've learned that I'm not good at making decisions about what to eat when I'm hungry so I make as many of my meals ahead that I can. So, taking an inventory of my eating habits for the week wasn't so hard.
I'd had what I considered very good eating days all week. I'd eaten nothing off plan. The only thing I could imagine might be the problem was my precious Lara bars. I love those things. They are all natural, which is huge for me right now. No processed stuff for me. So, I felt like they were a good choice. I was eating one for breakfast and one for an afternoon snack. Depending on the flavor they are 200-250 calories and have 20-25 carbs. Two a day, must be too many carbs for me at this point. Yesterday, I cut out both Lara bars and was rewarded with a loss this morning!!
I learned that Lara bars can be a healthy part of maintenance when I get there, but they can't be a part of weight loss for me. My body is just too carb sensitive.
