Day 145 - Effort only fully releases it's reward after a person refuses to quit...

That statement is pretty self-explainatory.  Without effort there are no rewards, makes sense to me.  Weight lose is a journey of efforts.  If we do our best and believe in what we are doing we will be rewarded.  I think this last few days has been an eye opener for me.  I've been sticking to my 3 meals a day and walking.  I tried the snacking but it did not work for me, as one snack always led to another and another and another.  This way I am not focused on eating every couple of hours.  For some snacking works but it is not for me.

4 oz yogurt
5 oz cubed cantaloupe

6 oz salad with 1 tablespoon low calorie French dressing
6 oz steamed vegetables (yellow beans)
4 oz cottage cheese

4 oz grilled pork chop
6 oz salad with 1 tablespoon regular Russian dressing
3 oz yellow beans
3 oz steamed baby bok choy

Had a small oops today as was totally stressed out.  Forgot to take snack packs to work so ended up with a handful (about 10) of chocolate covered almonds.  It did the trick and I even managed to stop at the one handful.  Hopefully it won't affect things to much.  Also had a Tassimo cappichinno after work.  Really craving caffiene today.


  1. Chocolate covered almonds aren't so bad! Snacking works for me because I feel like I am starving if I don't have something between lunch and dinner. Different strokes for different folks!

  2. I like snacking because I don't eat as much at my meals that way. I can tell my stomach can't handle as much food anymore because it has shrunk.
    You're right, everyone is different! I'm glad you have found something that works for You!

  3. Good job at stopping with one handful of the almonds! Impulse behavior is a hard one for me to break, but I'm working on it.

  4. The nuts are an awesome snack even with the chocolate, I think - and you managed to stop at 10. That is great.
