    I divided my most recent calorie budget by 3 to see what my meals should look like. That really helped me target a number that allowed me to have a mini cone. I was feeling rather dismayed by the new, lower budget, but breaking it down as I did helped a lot.

    A huge dinner with lots of veggies and chicken which filled me up and fit within my calorie goals for the day.

    I changed the settings to show fibre as one of my key nutrients, rather than sodium.

    I had noticed that I hardly ever get anywhere near my recommended daily amount of fibre.

    By focussing on getting my fibre up without blowing my carbs/calories meant that I included significantly more plant based foods, like frozen peas, sweet potato and apples. As a result, I had meals that looked bigger on the plate, took longer to eat and I felt fuller afterwards.

    I think this might be part of the key to weight loss for me.

    I ended up in the same place by showing "potassium" as one of my key nutrients. It works really well! I focus so much on getting enough potassium in a day, that I have that same full plate and I don't seem to notice losing the refined carbs.

    A few things have really worked for me! I found a high fiber low carb tortilla that is 50 cal, and allows me to have tacos again. I put the meat with a bunch of veggies and no cheese, and enjoy. :) Another thing is the Built series of protein bars, preworkout gels and vitamin drinks - very tasty, very low sugar. And finally, I started sitting on an exercise ball. I don't feel so sluggish at the end of my workday.

    What worked for me is posting in this thread early in the day so that I'll feel accountable tonight when I want to watch Netflix and eat everything in the house :)

    Staying busy around the house extra cleaning plus carrying my water gallon along really helped today. Keped my deficit till the end of my day.
