wednesday

Today has been much better. I still have wanted to eat everything in sight, but I chose half an apple and fat free ry krisp instead of popcorn and m&m's! I still have a couple of points left tonight even. I think I'll have a little dessert later with D while we watch TV. I'll add that in later.

I also think that it helped that I had my breakfast wrap first thing today. They are the frozen South Beach things. They are growing on me. At first I really thought they tasted like cardboard. But I need something I can grab and eat while I drive to work. Those wraps help me be satisfied since they are high in fiber and protein. Personally, I'd really rather have a big ol' pastry or huge bagel (or two!)...Here's my day in food:

I need to start taking lessons from you on using points wisely. You're able to eat so many different kinds of food through out the day...I eat one thing and I have to start checking my weekly points!

Oh, and I'm OCD about writing stuff down too actually. I write in both my 3 month journal and tracker online.

Your menu looks yummy! I'll have to steal some ideas from you.
Keep up the great work and I hope that posting your menu is working for you!
