Today went well! I ate the following:
Breakfast: two packets of Quaker cinnamon instant oatmeal (weight control version) with raisins added and one veggie sausage patty
Lunch: Boca grilled veggie burger on whole grain bun, green salad with fat free italian, grapes.
Dinner: Progresso lentil soap, apple
These choices allowed me to stay full and satisfied. I really didn't crave sugar and junk food today. Since this is my first day "off" sugar, I'm very surprised. I had a little bit of trouble when my husband and daughter were eating peanut butter crackers this evening, but since I'm eating low fat and I know that peanut butter can be difficult for me, I didn't eat any.
My son left a sweet note for me this morning, encouraging me on my new path to eating healthier. That meant so much to me!
Day two may be a challenge because I don't have to work. I'll have more free time than I typically do on Mondays, which can spell disaster. I resolve to fill any free time with constructive things, not food.
