Let’s Talk About Diets in 2015
It is time for my yearly talk about dieting. This past year has been a 10 lb. jumble for me. I arrived at my best weight from January thru November. I have pt a few extra pounds on since November. I think it is my thyroid again. I am still hypothyroid. I am very symptomatic. I am fatigued, depressed,weight gain and a few others. I know that Mr. Max has added a lot of stress to my life this year. My Mr. Max is what my daughter was last year in terms of health issues. My daughter also caused my thyroid to bounce around too. Right now I am cooking again. I have plenty of fruits and vegetables to keep us on track. I don’t know what my final weigh in will be this year, but I hope in 2015 it will be lower. If you read my Let’s Talk About Diets in 2014, the same is still true. My levels are still not in the normal level yet. I cannot believe it is taking this long to get my levels back to normal. Every blood test is coming back weirder and weirder. My only goal this year is to eat better and healthier. 2015 is going to bring changes. My daughter is graduating from college and is coming back home. That in itself will be challenging. She is used to having various food venues to choose from to get each meal. When she is home her choices are going to be significantly smaller. We will then have to regroup and restructure our food staples and choices. If you are reading this page then please read the other pages about dieting from 2013 and 4014. This page is a continuation of my life and diet history over a large span of time. I am adding some new strategies for maintaining weight loss. Good luck to everyone. Stay safe my fans and Bon Appetit.
Strategies for Maintaining Weight Loss
- Eat 4-5 small meals a day.
- Eat a freshly made salad every day
- Drink at least 32oz of water daily. In my terms 2 – 160z bottles of water.
- Cereal is a good snack food to keep on hand especially in the winter.
- Eat slowly. I don’t care who watches me eat and looks at me like I’m crazy.
- Portion your servings.
- Do not go food shopping when you are hungry.
- Keep healthy snacks with you.
- High salt does not make a healthy food at all.
- Enjoy what you are eating.
- Don’t make New Years Resolutions that you can not keep.
- A minute on the lips, forever on the hips.
- When you start to feel full, stop and take a breath. Count to a minute and then see if you are still hungry before eating more.
- Buy snacks in small packets. This way you can portion what you are craving.
