Day 139 - 167.8

No time to post the past few days. My daughter was sick yesterday so I was home with her. Man, I did NOT like being stuck in my house in the middle of hormonal cravings. It was a tough food day for me. Plus, no gym.

Today is back to normal. I've got a run planned for this afternoon--an easy 2 miles. And back on track food wise. My official weight at LA is now 169.8. I'm 24.8 pounds from goal.

LA is rolling out a new food plan on Monday. They are upping the quantities of food we can eat, which is awesome. I don't know much yet, but know it's all good. For example: 1 veggie used to be 1 c. lettuce. Now it's 3 c. lettuce=1 veggie. And a dairy serving will go from 8 oz to 10 oz. And I'll get 3 starches instead of 2. They tested it for 6 months and people lost MORE weight on this plan. So, more food and still losing weight... sounds like a winner to me. And just in time to keep me from going into a plateau. That P words scares the dickens out of me. Not even going there right now!

I probably won't be around much until next week. It's a busy summer weekend ahead that I plan to enjoy in the real world with my family. But I'll be thinking of you all!

Hugs and kisses to you, my cyber friends. Have a healthy, happy weekend.

I hope you had a great weekend and your daughter is feeling better. I somehow manage to eat what feels like a ton of food and maintain - plateau has just become a miserable way of life now and cutting back didn't make much of a difference.

Re: your comment on my food consumption. I'm a picky eater and I seem to be getting worse with 'maturity' rather than better. Basically, eggs are the main food between me and veganism. I eat eggs everyday. I eat tofu (though I try to only eat it once per day), beans, lots of whole grains, fruits and veggies. I could live on peanut butter, dry cereal and pretzels, but the first two have too much sugar and the pretzels basically have no nutritional value.

Prepping food isn't that hard for me since I basically eat the same thing everyday, but boredom is an issue. I don't really do it for moral reasons so maybe that is why I don't see it as a huge committment, just a decision I made. The only food I crave with regularity (i.e. once every 28 or 56 days) is buffalo wings. It's been about 14 months straight, but on and off for almost 4 years without meat.
