Yesterday was one of those days where I just could NOT get full. I kept feeling the need to shovel stuff into my mouth all day long. This usually happens on days when I am sitting around all day, whether it is because I have to work on a project or because I'm watching T.V. or reading. Yesterday morning was kind of dreary, I'm just getting over a cold, so I did not feel great, and I had to work on Saturday - so that all added up to my sitting around the house all day. I was productive, I got a couple of projects done that I have been putting off for a while. But boy did I snack! All day. When we started our weight loss program, my husband and I got rid of all the junk food in the house. It really paid off yesterday. I snacked a lot yesterday, but it was on apples, grapes, some plain cheerios, and veggies. Not potato chips, cookies, or ice cream. As a result, even though I was snacking, I ended up netting under 1200 calories after I got my daily exercise. Not bad for a day that would have been a disaster a little over six months ago.
