So I decided to incorporate this point counting concept into my diet to get a handle on my food intake. Because I haven’t enrolled officially in the program (read: I’m cheap!), I don’t have all the information I need to figure out how many points regular food is. This has resulted in eating the pre-prepared stuff with the points printed on the box. So far so good.
The amazing thing is, this food doesn’t taste bad at all. I expected it to taste awful and there was no way it was going to fill me up. But I was wrong on both counts. I did try the chicken parm the other day and that was pretty bad. The *alleged* chicken was anyway. I’m pretty sure they used the feet to make that little patty.
I don’t have a working scale at home so who knows if this is working. I’ve started a new pilates regimen, which is the greatest exercise ever created IMO, and my clothes have loosened ever so slightly. Good sign that.
If I keep this up I should be feeling really good by the time summer gets here. That’s the goal anyway. So don’t tell anyone that I’m slipping just a bit and having an Uno’s Deep Dish pizza for lunch today. It’s a craving and I’m only human. I’d rather give myself one day to indulge than overload everyday like I was.
