This is just a brief update as I don’t start the next phase of the program until next week. I’ve gone to the lower portion, but I’m having a lot of trouble with it, which is why my weight is probably still remaining steady (though my pooch – excuse the term – seems to be considerably smaller than usual.). I do REALLY well all day, breakfast, lunch and dinner.
But I find that I’m still incredibly hungry after dinner. Like – stomach protesting loudly type hungry. I drink a lot of water and try to ignore it, but then end up snacking. Still hungry. So more snacking. Last night, after my pasta dinner (about a 1.5 cups of pasta with butter, garlic and thyme) I had a pudding cup and then 1/4 of Chef Boyardee Spaghetti & Meatballs – a leftover nonperishable courtesy of Irene. We are a little tight on cash right now, hence nothing better to eat. Luckily the Chef Boyardee was nasty, so I ended up putting most of it in the fridge for the boy to devour.
Anyway, I hope Week 5 introduces something to help me combat this need to eat everything in my kitchen right before bed so that my number can start to drop again.
