So far it hasn't been too terribly hard to stick to my calorie allowance for the day. If I am good all day I allow myself to have the rest of my calories with an adult snack. I love popcorn and wine or popcorn and a margarita! I know I won't be able to do this forever because my calorie allowance will decrease as my weight decreases. But for right now I am allowing it! By good during the day, I have to stay at 2/3 of my 1850 calories by eating a balanced diet. Protein, carbs, fat in cluding fruits and veggies!
Although so far it has been easy I have been faced by some challenges! Today at a work meeting they had a huge box of donuts. I didn't have my usual 2+ donuts. I skipped those and got a bottle of water. How did I skip the donuts, I didn't have a bite. If I don't taste even a small bite of it, I do better. Once I have some, I want more and more and more! My work friends apologized for eating it in front of me. I said, please don't feel bad, I have to get used to being around food I shouldn't have. I will have a challenging weekend. I am going to a cookout/sleep over and I will be around lots of high calories foods that I should avoid. I am going to take a veggie and fruit tray and eat that. I will have some of the other but I will have to learn to eat in moderation! I don't want to over do it and have a gain since I am so close to a 50 lb weight loss. But if I gain, I will just remember that is one day in a lifetime.
How do you avoid temptations at cookouts? Do you just eat anyway and worry about it later or do you have your phone handy and put everything you eat into your fitness pal?
