So close and yet so far

I finally got my diet pills after some to do. But the lady at meds management said I can’t take one today because it’s too late. Apparently they can cause some anxiety if you take them too late in the day. Sigh. So I can’t start until tomorrow. And I started my diet today, so I’m extra hungry. I think I’m going to eat an egg. lol.

I hope you do well on your pills!

I started eating better today and have done pretty good so far.

Best of luck, @leaf.

Yogert,

I had some veggie quiche for lunch,

A couple snacks.

Just trying to cut back on portions and junk food right now.

That sounds good. I’m trying to decide what I want my one meal to be. I could have salads or crudite or even a small amount of pasta with veggies in the sauce. I guess I should do different things to keep it interesting. The same thing all the time would be boring. I could even get some Amy’s meals, I love those and it would be easy.

I like Amy’s too.

I think you should eat whatever would be the most satisfying.

As long as you keep your portions in control, like you’re doing, you can eat what you want.

I’m hoping the pills help with portion control because I’ve been struggling so much with that. It’s been terrible. I’ve been eating a meal and thinking about what I get to eat next. This is the worst I’ve ever been and the most I’ve weighed.

Don’t feel bad.

In 2012 I was the heaviest I’ve ever been and I lost almost 80lbs just watching my portions and going on walks.

You can absolutely do this.

I did it, and I love food so much.

I really think the pills will help you too.

@goldenrex Thats good you lost all that weight. Did you lose it while on medication?

No.

I got off medication so I could lose it.

Probably not advised.
