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.

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.
