Woohoo! Look at Me, I'm Sandra... Oops... I'm down!

Yay! I lost a whopping half pound!
I know this isn't much, but I've been suffering from some serious cravings!
I didn't give into them, but just the thought of me
weakening and possibly stuffing an extra large bag of greasy fries into my mouth
frightens me.
I don't know what it is.
Ever since January, I've been super good.
I can probably name off the two times that I "cheated" on my journey.
Once was girls' night out, and I had a strawberry cupcake.
Another time was when I had those two slices of pizza two days before my weigh-in.
Yes, I know I indulge on Saturdays, but I do that so I don't
completely fall off the wagon.
Why am I so hungry?
Am I not eating enough?
Am I not spacing out my food (time-wise)?
Am I eating too many carbs and not enough protein to keep me satisfied longer?
These are all very good questions, and I'll have to spend some time thinking about them.

Congrats on the half pound! Maybe this will help...

Although I am not on Medifast anymore I have learned that eating 6 times a day AND changing it up really helps. I think sometimes our bodies get used to the same old stuff and we need to shake it up a bit to actually lose more. I eat ceral for breakfast usually, or a bagel thin or something of the sort. Then mid morning a yogurt or something. Then my lunch, etc. I am counting calories and I am learning a lot from it! the coments on one of my recent posts my friend asked me to tell her what I am eating a day. I kind of spelled out my day on there if you are interested in taking a peek. But by eating 6 meals a day I find that there are way fewer cravings and it is much easier to make healthy choices when i am not starving! Do you know how mnay calories you are eating a day? I found this site that tells me how many my body needs just to function (At a minimum). It was quite interesting! Keep going!!!! you are doing great! Hope this helps.

Well, just looking at your menu, I think you probably need to include a high-protein snack in there somewhere. Perhaps a little trail mix to snazz things up! You exercise enough.
