Meeting goals

No matter how small. This wasn’t really one of my “official” weight loss goals, but this morning I hit the 25 pound mark after some regression from 24, and subsequent bouncing. I got back on track with the portion control of my diet, and when I was craving and wanting to binge, I got a big ole bowl of fruit and went to town. I need to get back on track with meal planning, and cooking ahead, at least for lunches. I finally remembered that I still had some stuff in the freezer, like the tortilla mexican chicken that I had to leave alone for a while because pre-surgery it was the lunch I lost that one day. Even though I know full well that isn’t what made me sick, it’s a mental thing.

My budget is about to get really tight again so meal planning is going to be a really big deal especially with the kids home all summer. For that matter planning something healthy they will both eat is a major challenge. Eat it or starve is my motto, but there is another variable to that equation. Still, I make sure we have peanut butter & jelly & bread. Oh, and last night I got home and Jamie met me at the van with “We need to go get food. I’m hungry.” I countered with “Isn’t there hamburger meat in the fridge?” She paused for a few second and then popped off with “Fix me food. I’m hungry.” As if she is incapable of making burgers herself…

I still need a cook…and a maid…or both… 😉

  1. when you find that maid or cook can I use them too? we will figure out logistics later. good for you on the goal achievement! I think it always helps the next goal when you make the first one! I really need to get back on meal planing too!!!!

      hahaha! You got it!

      I had to do some serious denial (I didn’t starve, or miss a meal) of comfort eating. And now I am just 2 pounds away from my 3rd weight milestone – under 180. 🙂

    OMG. Kids. They are so demanding. Always wanting you to cook or clean or sew for them. Next thing you know, they will want to borrow the car. LOL. Hang in there, DL. But I hear you, and menu planning is a great way to save money and waste less food. I am trying really hard to stick to that myself. It is not easy but I think it does get easier with time.

      The only thing stopping them from asking for the car is that Jamie has yet to take her driver’s test and therefore does not have so much as a permit, and Chad’s not old enough yet. 😉
