Wednesday Virtual Dinner Partner

I don't like to live with my eyes focused on the numbers AND I do pay attention to them as only a single measure of how I am doing. My weight is up today. I swing into motion by tightening the reigns a little when this happens.

There were years when I had no idea how much I weighed but that has changed in the last decade as I have tried to make sustainable life changes that impact my health. Recent research shows that people who have maintained a long term weight loss weigh themselves frequently. In the spirit of maintaining my changes I keep tabs on my weight several times a week.

Sleep: 7 hours & up at 7
Vitamins

Ate at set table. Slightly hungry to start and satisfied finishing.

1/2c nf cottage cheese, half an apple, and 2 tbsp walnuts
2 c black tea

10:00
Walking around doing things, sipping as I went. Very busy day planned and I didn't want to get hungry. I wasn't hungry but I completely enjoyed it. Felt satisfied and not full finishing.

Not a table meal. I was running around getting ready to go out. Enjoyed dinner but lost many of the details. Hungry starting out but I didn't even notice the end of the meal let alone how full I felt.
