So I set out this morning to weigh in for the 2nd time and knew I could not stay for the meeting because we have our 2nd or 3 homeschool testing days at our house so I had to get home fast. I bought some popped BBQ crisps and some maple brown sugar oatmeal because sometimes having those things that are already counted up points-wise for you and are quick and easy really helps when you are nearing HANGRY (hungry + getting angry because you are so hungry = HANGRY).
And when you are SUPER HUNGRY you tend to eat whatever you can find. That's why I like to keep a little bag of things in my purse and car like almonds already counted into baggies at 5 points per baggie, chips that I know are 2 points per bag, protein bars, 2-point chocolate snack bars, and fruit. Yes, for now I am eating processed foods that are probably not fantastic for me, but they are helping me to get a handle on my food issues and learn about portions and when I am truly hungry. We can talk about going Paleo or something like that once I know what I can deal with realistically.

Total weight loss since January 6 = 4.8 pounds (159.4 to 154.6)
Goals: to walk a half marathon this fall because I have always loved to walk and for my knees to not crack when I do squats or walk down the stairs
