I'm sitting at a grocery store in Syracuse. They have free WiFi. We are doing health screenings for their employees but so far not very busy. I'm prepared for today. Made a ham sandwich on Arnold's sandwich thin. Had leftover strawberries that I added plain FF yogurt to. Also packed grapes and carrots. I think I'm set for today. We will eat at a restaurant tonight and then tomorrow I'll have to buy my meals from the store. It's a little tough doing SF but can be done. I'll use weekly points where I have to.
Hope you all had a great Easter and didn't eat too much chocolate. I splurged last night and had 2 points worth of dark chocolate as a treat.
Good afternoon everyone. having a rough day today I want to eat everything. so far I have warded myself off though knowing it wont make me feel anybetter about my self later on. I woke up terribly late this morning I had taken a sinus pm and it knocked me out. so I just got done with dinner/breakfast.
Today is going to be pretty busy soon, I take the younger dd to get fitted for flower girl dresses. then soccer for two hours so supper will be late.
Patty I have a question for you dont know if you can awnser it or not. Had my health screening last week and came back with a report of high bad cholesteral. The good cholesteral was good and so was the overall. Being on SF how do you limit your intake of bad cholesteal? Are eggs and shrimp just as bad as red meat. And does the % on the nutritional label tell you the amount of good or bad?
thanks for helping if you know any of the awnsers
op for me
Chelsie, sorry you are having a hard time. I've had those days when I wanted to eat all day. Don't know the cause or the cure.
As far as your cholesterol. Limiting the amount of animal protein is certainly one way to lower overall fat intake. The things you want to steer clear of are transfats. SF is actually pretty good for limiting fats. All of the whole grains and fruits and veggies are great. Steer clear of anything that has hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils, palm oils and other oils that are solid at room temperatures. If you eat beef go for the round or sirloin. If you eat ground beef be sure that it is at least 93% lean. If you eat ground poultry be sure it is just ground white meat. Some of the ground poultry has skin and fat ground into it. Some people have good luck eating ground flax seed, they aren't SF but may be worth the points to have a couple tablespoonsful every day. They are good sprinkled on cereal or a salad. The SF food list is basically the way I tell most people to eat if they have cholesterol or blood sugar problems. When you look at a nutrition label look for the saturated fat. You don't want that.
Hope this helps.
Hi there! I am sorry to be MIA for several days. Scott and the kids were all on break and we were just so busy! I am thinking of everyone though.
I have been OP pretty well, until today. I ate 2 servings of pasta for lunch but did stop then. I was just so hungry today! Dinner was back OP, so no harm done. Sometimes, I think I just have to trust my body a little more and if it says eat, then I better eat. I didn't eat until I was stuffed and I didn't allow it to make me binge. I simply ate more at lunch than usual, because I was hungry. I think I am still learning that hunger isn't the enemy. It is just our body's way of communicating to us what it needs.
