Thanks Chris, and yup you spelled my name right
I weighed myself today, 162, up from 160 when you first started this thread. I mean I kind of expected it but I just didn't want to face it because I wasn't ready to fix it yet. I feel more ready now so hopefully I will be losing weight soon. I feel so hopeful and happy lately. The smallest accomplishments boost my self confidence so much and I just feel more content overall and all the negativity towards myself kind of wears off. The only problem is that usually failure is around the corner. Lol but not this time, I keep telling myself because if I don't I know it will be a self fulfilling prophecy
My next goal is to start some sort of physical activity even just walking because I feel like it's important for my health, I've been slouching a lot lately and that's what a sedentary lifestyle does.
oh, a good tip, and one that I try to observe:
|Inculde a small amount of protein at each meal.... Protein is the most difficult food to digest, therfore, it stays in the stomach longer, providing a feeling of fullness.|
It appears that they have different names in different countries. This is the US site, http://www.michelinas.com/Products.aspx You can print off coupons too
I will add to the meal as well....throw in some mushrooms and spinach, and then I have a full veggie serving, full meat serving, full grain serving, and only lacking a full dairy serving out of the 4 food groups.
I even found some dinners at walmart for a buck, (so cheaper in the US) that have 300 or less cals in them
