A couple of weeks ago, on one of my dinner posts, I mentioned my weight loss. Several people asked how I was doing it. I am doing it the old fashioned way--eating healthy and walking when I can.
One of the things that make a huge difference for me is making sure that I have food ready to go and divided into portion sized servings. I use this nice big deli drawer in my fridge to keep things in and they are ready to grab and go. They are pre-measured and portioned out the way I want them to be, and easy to log on the FitBit app.
I have to make myself do this as soon as I get home from the grocery store. If I don't, then it ends up not getting done and then when I need convenience food, I don't always make the best choices. I try and keep a large variety off foods in there (yes I know there are lots of types of cheese!!) There is a mix of fruits and veggies that I cut up and store bought packages--I love those apple and caramel packs when I am craving something sweet. I like to have a large choice of foods to choose from and this allows me to see what is available without me forgetting about what I have and wasting food.
There is also a bowl of nuts, seeds, crackers and other nonrefrigerated snacks too.
This is a huge help for me and keeps me scales moving to the lower numbers!
