Well my vidaone software told me that I'm not losing weight fast enough and you know what? It's right (I have the version for the desktop and I'm running a version on my smartphone). I have gained back the first few pounds I lost. The software is gently nudging me and suggesting some options for me.
How did this happen? Failure to plan. I knew I was going to be stressed out (becaase of my final exams at college), and yet I didn't stock the shelves with healthy snack foods for me to munch on while pausing between my studying. That was dumb. I knew I was going to want to much on breaks. I plan and I study for my final exams, but I didn't plan for my health goals.
OK, I've learned a lesson. What I need to do here now is identify what I did wrong and come up with a different plan (in this case get ot the store and by some healhty snacks). Here are some other dietting tips. If you are eating out? Halve it, and box the rest. A typical restaurant entree has 1,000 to 2,000 calories, not even counting the bread, appetizer, beverage and dessert. When dining out, if you order a dessert, share it with your diet. Two people – one dessert. Use a salad plate instead of a dinner plate. This helps for those times when we feel we have to “Empty our plate.”
Remember if you fall down, you take what you've learned and get back up again. You can do it.
