I gained 3.6 lbs. this week. I followed the plan and stayed within my points. No explanation for the gain. But I’m going to try not to dwell on it and try to move forward knowing that the weight will come off eventually.
But that’s a BIG GAIN! Not only a BIG GAIN, but it puts me back about 3 weeks! I’m hoping it comes off quickly… Maybe I’ll have a big loss next week? *fingers crossed*
For some TMI, it was TOM even though I don’t have TOM on my BC pill- I’m sure my hormones do the same thing either way. Plus, I haven’t been feeling well. Am I making excuses? Not so much as I am acknowledging I may be doing the right thing, but my body may be having a tough week. Make sense?
For breakfast, I had my usual for 9 points.
I didn’t feel like eating on my first break. It helps to eat breakfast a little later in the morning, which isn’t usually an option- but it was today. But I had a sore throat again, so I made some Duchess Grey tea for 0 points.
For lunch, I had tuna w/ light mayo on a sandwich thin with tomato and greens for 5 points.
I also had tomato soup and raw carrots for 3 points.
For dessert, I had 1 cup fresh pineapple for 0 points.
It felt like a healthy and satisfying lunch! I made a conscious decision not to eat baked chips today and go for the carrots- so yay me!
I worked for a couple more hours and I was happy when they asked if I wanted to sign out early because my throat was really hurting and sore- and I have to talk all day for my job! So I took that opportunity! I made up one of my favorite smoothies- be on the lookout for a recipe soon! 3 Servings of fruit in this one! I bet you wonder what’s in it, huh? 1 point.
And it felt wonderful on my throat!
A while later, while doing homework, I snacked on 1 cup of Cheerios for 3 points. I love these because they’re so little and it takes a while to eat them. They fill me up, too!
Hubby called to say he wouldn’t be home until probably around 9:00, so I went ahead and ate supper solo. It was the perfect opportunity to use up a package of Tofu Shirataki spaghetti that I had in the fridge. It smelled fishy when I opened it, which is normal, so I hear. I wasn’t sure what to expect!
I added spaghetti sauce that had a tiny bit of sausage in it. I ended up adding more spaghetti sauce later for more flavor. This was 6 points.
The verdict- they’re very low in points but I think I would rather have a serving of whole wheat pasta. The noodles were chewy, almost like I was eating rubber or something. But they definitely filled me up! I’m just kind of wondering how they’ll digest…Ew.
I also had a sandwich thin topped with a light Laughing Cow Mozzarella, Sun-Dried tomato and Basil cheese wedge with green beans for 4 points.
I had 3 points left, so I had a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich for 4 points. Why are there so many “diet” foods with cow in the name? lol
It’s a little perplexing, isn’t it?
I feel like today was a good day eating wise. No matter how bad my WI was, I’m just going to keep on going.
