    Preportioning and planning. I got home from the store hungry, tired, and footsore. I had pulled pork thawed in the fridge, and it took no time to nuke a small amount, add barbecue sauce, and slap it on a bun and eat it. And there wasn't anything in the store that I wanted more than that pulled pork sandwich, so it kept me on track.

    I've been craving sandwich cookies, and discovered that I can have 4 Oreo Thins for 180 calories. Not something to have constantly, but a lot of my evening snacks are right around 180-200, so that's okay. And when I opened the package I had a bag of plastic snack bags handy, and I counted out four cookies into each bag and sealed them up and put it all in a bigger bag in the pantry where it's out of sight.

    I know that separate portions like that really work well for me; I've done it with chips all along. Not that I can't open a second bag, I could; somehow, the act of needing to open a separate bag is enough to make me reconsider the extra.

    I'm also putting a stray tablespoon measure into the granola jar. I have no excuse not to measure the granola I add to my yogurt for texture.

    Tablespoon in the granola jar is a GREAT idea. Maybe that will stop me from doing the "shake a little in...then a little more...oooo there's a big cluster let's drop that in too...okay now I'll log this as two tablespoons" process :D

    can you share what brand and where you found the high fiber low carb tortilla? i am having a tough time finding them! they sound delicious

    Sure! So far I've used the Mission brand tortillas - either their Whole Wheat Carb Balance tortilla, which is 70 cal each with 15 grams of fiber, or the Ole Extreme Wellness Wrap which is 50 cal and 11 grams of fiber. I personally like them, they are nice and soft and I can find them fine at my grocery store.

    What worked for me today was kicking butt at my workout but also adding belly dancing to make it extra fun! 😋
    I have lost 10 pounds just logging eatting right and doing work outs that I enjoy. I recommend the FIT ON app. Lots of great workouts to choose from.

    Admitting I'm struggling. I need to take it easy with exercise; I am sore and if I push, I'll injure myself. But I am down to a calorie goal of 1340 and that is just so hard and I use exercise to help me get a little extra to eat. I'm just hungry lately--and I've been outside more, walking more, but unable to run as much (not that I run a lot, but I couldn't yesterday or today). I am almost 62 (next week) and still trying to lose 1 lb a week. The thought of having to settle for 0.5 a week while I'm still in the 180s is depressing. But at least I'm acknowledging my frustration and thinking about ways to get through this.

    Have you tried varying the kinds of foods you eat in order to address the hunger/ satiety issue?

    I felt like a huge breakfast from a drive-thru (that is very rare for me), so I skipped lunch to stay within my budget.

    Working out with my boyfriend. I overcome my inertia by knowing that he expects to go, and talking with him as we go through the workout is fun and companionable.

    Nintendo Switch games (Just Dance and certain Ring Fit mini games) as chair aerobics to give my aching legs a rest.
