Thank you for your comments yesterday. When I am home, I do measure my foods to make sure I am doing what I should. When I am at work or on the go, I try to go with foods I know the calories. After reading Chris's Post about measuring it got me thinking and wondering if even those measurements were correct. Today I was forced into eating with the management team and I made as solid choices as I could. But because it was catered and the provider didn't have the nutritional information, I was forced to look at similar foods and guess as to my calorie content. I try to be pretty religious when it comes to calories because I want this so bad. I am just so frustrated that the weight isn't coming down. My husband says I look like I'm slimming even if the scale doesn't show it. So, with it being the end of January, I decided to re-evaluate my goals and tomorrow start fresh. The first thing I am going to do is kick the weighing every day since for 11 days in a row I have hovered around 196. I weigh at my trainers on Monday so I will do the same at home. I also noticed that I started eating a heavier breakfast around 11 days ago - instead of Fruit n yogurt parfait from McDonalds (130 calories with no granola that I threw away) I would have Fruit and Maple Oatmeal at 290 calories then adjust what I ate the rest of the day. There has to be something with my diet that is keeping the weight on. I am moving every single day. I am drinking water. I am not eating breads or sweets. So, it has to be something that I am eating that is keeping me up. If I can figure that out and do the measuring better, than I hope by next Monday I will be down. PLEASE! I am not giving up. I am frustrated, but I am not giving up. Hell, I'm 10 pounds lighter than I was three months ago. That counts for something. The steel curtain is up.
