So I failed for the last three weeks. I've had a bit of stress and fell into the chocolate cravings. I think it is understandable considering the chemical pregnancy I had. Yes, most of the weight I gained back I did so last week wallowing in self-pity.
Today I went back to my diet of calorie counting. It isn't so bad. I finally recalled the foods I was eating back in 2011 that helped me stay full and lose weight.
Fage yogurt with honey added
Diluted Tart Cherry Juice
Low calorie bread for sandwiches
Homemade mini pizzas
Hot cocoa in the evening to stave off my late night chocolate cravings
Other than the above I carefully measure and calculate what I can eat. Well yes I do calculate the calories per serving of the above foods too but I think you understand what I'm getting at.
I'm hoping to have back off the almost 6 pounds I put back on recently and of course take off at least 20 more before the donor egg cycle has become a FET.
I've got to stick with this. I'm a 34 BMI and though that number is within guidelines it isn't a healthy BMI. I need to get back to my 30 BMI and under to make myself happier. I need to feel good about how I look and know that I'll have a better chance at a healthier pregnancy.
I can do this. All I ask of my readers is to send me support often to stay the path even when things don't go as I planned. I'm an emotional eater.
