Un counting calories.

Wednesday, February 24, 2021

I am not counting calories as I try to lose my last 15 pounds. I stopped for several months trying to lose weight but luckily didn't put on more than the same 5 pounds over and over, I would lose, gain , back and forth. Now being serious again, 3 pounds lighter and feeling better..
But about not counting, but un counting. My husband lives to eat and loves to cook. I have had to say NO to the food the cooks for the most part or eat a very small portion. Mostly I try to adapt. So I didn't have a bun, 130 pounds saved. He made half pound hamburgers, I ate third pound turkey burger, that was close to 400 pounds less. No Mayo, no cheese, what another 150 calories. I realized why I can't lose weight by just cutting out sweets and eating the normal meals in this house. I am adding more veggies to my own meals, and if do eat the potato salad, or the pasta, I have a very small serving. I am also cutting out the red meat that is eaten almost every meal and having chicken or a piece of salmon. When I do eat it, I don't let him serve and I eat a very small bit.

    Those are great ways to eat but still feel satisfied.

    My husband thinks we are equal in terms of how much food we should eat. So he serves his 300+ pound self and me the same portion. It's taking me a lot of time but I am working on getting him away from that. We are both fortunate in that our husbands love to cook!
