Joy In The Journey

RE: Joy In The Journey
I eat some protein - grilled chicken, protein bar, protein shake. Fewer calories and it ups my protein for the day. Grilled chicken is low on calories - high on protein and seems to calm down the munchies for me!

RE: Joy In The Journey
Maybe do a bit more planning? We're all different, but for me, planning my day in the morning or even the day before helps a lot. If I know what I'll be having for dinner, I can plan my other meals and snacks to be sure I distribute the calories and macros. I aim for lots of protein & fat at breakfast because they keep me satisfied longer; actually, I eat a high-protein overnight muesli or oats almost every morning (I've posted the recipe to the recipe forum). I usually have a morning snack, and always have an afternoon snack and something late evening. Occasionally I have those "random" things, but I find that I'm a lot less prone to grabbing "junk" when I have the day plotted out. The idea isn't to have just any calories (although a splurge occasionally is fine), but healthful calories. I figure a whole wheat English muffin with guacamole is better than a bunch of chips for the same calories. :-) And sometimes, of course, something happens and I have to change the plan mid-day, but that seems less daunting with an overall plan in place. I hope that helps a little.

RE: Joy In The Journey
Ok!!! I have been faithfully having 2,200-2,300 per day this week and it feels greathappy Going to weigh at the end of the week because I think I might be nearing my TDEE (but I'm still hoping/praying that my TDEE might be 3,000ish like my sister's LOL). TONIGHT, however, I just want to tell ya'll that I ate about 2 1/2- 3 CUPS of double chocolate chip ice cream... and went up to 2,900...hahaha I've heard it said tho that sometimes your heart and soul just need it angel I feel a bit guilty (cuz it reminds me of my old binging ways) and full and a little scared, but gosh that was so tasty happy Thanks for listening! Hope you guys had an awesome Easter

Sunshine, don't feel bad, it sounds like you're enjoying yourself and eating intuitively!
I've been trying out these new vegan ice creams I recently discovered and it's a lot of fun. It's so easy to feel guilty about treats like ice cream, but if it fits your macros and you're not stuffing yourself when eating it, I don't see why you shouldn't happy

We are just talking about always starting with a clean slate in this thread: http://forums.eatmore2weighless.com/show...682&page=7

No guilt, unless the ice cream was lousy.

2-1/2 or 3 cups is not a binge... its just a big bowl! big grin I would consider that a treat, enjoy every minute of it and do NOT feel guilty! I have real ice cream once in a while, but I tend to gravitate toward halo top for regular treats - and it has protein!

RE: Joy In The Journey
Jules, I have been trying out the vegan ice creams as well! They're pretty good (can't say they can be compared to double chocolate chip REAL ice cream, but hey, it's still fun to try new thingsbig grin)

Tereza, I read through the thread you posted and it's perfect! Thanks

Kelly, THANK YOU for the encouragement LOL big grin I DID enjoy every minute of it, but I ate it out in the garage, hahahahaha... cuz I don't really feel like being watched by my family gobbling down all that goodness!

RE: Joy In The Journey
First of all, TGIF big grin

Second of all, I wanted to just put this update out there:

Starting weight: about 130 lbs
Goal weight: 125 lbs

TDEE EM2WL calculator: Moderate 2217 calories
Strenuous 2467 calories

Week April 14-20: goal was 2,200

-Fri. 2240 (1 hour weight lifting with breaks and warm up)
-Sat. 2240 (run 3 miles)
-Sun. 2300 (yoga)
-Mon. 2800 (run 2 miles)
-Tues. 2440 (1 hour weight lifting with breaks and warm up)
-Wed. 2540 (1 mile swim)
-Thurs. 2210 (3 1/2 slow miles)

WEIGH IN THIS MORNING (I haven't weighed myself in 1 1/2 months): 133lbs

I'm kind of discouraged about that number. I feel like I should have been weighing all along so I could get a more realistic idea of my progress, but here I am anyway happy I know my goal was 2,200 for this week and I'm not very good about being consistent. Today, I didn't eat enough during the afternoon, so it piled onto tonight and I'm up to 2,500. My goal for this week is again, 2,200. Help. My cheeks are puffy. I have a wedding that I'm attending May 21st and want to look my best, but I must keep reminding myself that weight and the way I look will not change who I am inside. Thanks for listening guys happy I really appreciate you!
