I just wanted to say THANK YOU for taking the time to write such encouraging words to me! It helps so much. I won't give up, because that would just be pointless.
I know that with my hormones off it really does affect my weight and ability to lose weight, so as long as I don't keep gaining and continue to practice healthy eating habits, I will learn to be content. In whatever state I happen to be in.
Today has gone well. I did my Shred video and ate well. I didn't count my calories, but ate an apple I found in the fridge, as well as a banana with peanut butter. I also had a rice cake, 16 wheat thins (twice) with hummus and then roast, a baked potato and corn for dinner. Oh, and I had some Kashi with no milk in the morning.
I do plan to start trying to keep track of my calories, just so I have a general idea of how many I'm eating. But until I can get to the store... hopefully Thursday night, I don't have any more fresh fruits and vegetables. My husband has been putting in a lot of hours at work, so he isn't always available to run to the store, although he would if he could! ;-)
Have a great evening, my friends.
