Sorry I haven't posted lately, but things are just SO busy. As I'm sure some of you know, I spent a week in Mississauga recently for work, and had been spending a lot of time at the hospital with my grandma. I'm happy to say that grandma is back home and doing very well.
I am no longer counting points. I am trying now to maintain my weight on my own, by making healthy choices. Things have been going very well with it. I've also been trying to eliminate any foods from my diet that contain any bad chemicals, so I've been eating lots of good fresh foods, and a lot of homemade goods. I'm loving all of the healthy baking I'm doing, and all of the foods I've incorporated back into my diet in order to eliminate aspartame and preservatives.
I've also become a squash and sweet potato addict... is there a program out there for that?
I'm trying to limit my caloric intake to roughly the recommended daily intake of 2000 calories. It's actually not hard at all, even with my use of natural sweeteners now instead of using products containing aspartame. I think the natural foods are doing a great job of keeping me full, and I find myself eating lots of small snacks now instead of my three square meals. With me eating so much throughout the day, I definitely don't feel deprived, and it keeps my metabolism going!
