Total Weight Loss

Finally, a Loss!!

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.
