Diets suck; no other way of putting that. I have to get myself kick started to get back into healthier eating as trying to do one thing at a time just isn’t working for me.
So I decided to give Slimfast a try… I don’t know who ever thought that a slimfast shake could hold you for four hours but they must have been used to eating nothing… sigh.
My worst place is work. I’m a social worker in a hospital. When I’m not seeing patients, I’m sitting at my desk writing notes or letters for patients or looking for resources so I spend A LOT of time at my desk. Problem is when I’m at my desk, I eat. Not sure why but I do so it’s been torture only drinking a shake.
I do a small regular breakfast and am only doing the shake for lunch because lunches seem to be my biggest downfall. It’s hard to make a low calorie sandwhich that tastes good and so I often bring leftovers from dinner.. they’re easy but unfortunately, my lunches usually cause me to go way over on my calorie intake.
Hence the Slimfast… I’m hoping if I can get used to not eating a big lunch and only munching on either raw veggies (no dip) or apple slices (all factored into my calorie count), I will be on my way to being a bit more successful.
Hey.. if I really get used to it.. maybe I’ll just keep drinking slimfast for lunches and just increase to two on alternating days when I reach my goal weight.
Here goes nothing!
