    What worked for me today was a cup of Lemon Loaf tea (my fave) after dinner. I had that “I NEED something sweet” feeling even though I wasn’t hungry, and the tea was enough to satisfy the craving.

    What is the brand name of the "lemon loaf tea"? Hope I can get it in the US.

    Getting behind the wheel of my "thin" friend's car, and not having to move the seat back. I even noticed today that I really should pull my seat "up" in my car. It's a different world out there when you're thinner!

    Restaurants are opening up here and I went to a buffet and messed up. Next time I will have no desserts there because I got carried away. Main thing is I didn't just throw in the towel and give up. I got right back on track today, saying I am human I do mess up and journaled some about why I overate yesterday and made a plan for next time.

    I would not go to a buffet unless I *planned* to 'mess up,' haha. Every now and then I just don't think about my weight/healthy eating, because once in a blue moon won't hurt. I'm in a holding pattern right now--birthday and vacation. I won't do any serious damage in a couple of weeks and a few pounds gained will be mostly water weight. And any "real" weight gain (ie, fat), will not make more than a couple of weeks difference in the big scheme of things. Knowing that, and having a healthier lifestyle for my day to day living, makes it so much easier to enjoy this time and not feel hopeless because of it.

    A long walk. I’m on vacation and eating what I want. Enjoying myself bc sometimes it’s ok not to focus on losing.

    It's from Tazo! I'm in the US as well (Georgia) and I get it at Kroger :)

    today i tried my best to stay within the limits of my macronutrients for the day, unfortunately still went a little over on carbs but less than yesterday, kinda still over on the fats and proteins just a little under the reccomended grams. Kinda had too much avocado with my dinner turning it into a salad of sorts with organic spinach and vegan shredded cheese no dressing. Just gotta keep trying and tuning the food selection.

    Keeping busy all day. One thing I've really noticed during the pandemmy is screen time = eat time and since my screen time has been up, oh, about 1000% , it's not a good look. When I limit my screen time (Netflix, video games, mindless scrolling) and do more analog stuff like cleaning, drawing and reading I also eat less.

    Mini tootsie roll pops.

    20 calories each. I get a bit of sugar and chocolate and it lasts a long time.

    What worked for me was eating plenty of fat and protein. An avocado and sardines for an early lunch kept me full for 5 hours.

    Today it was getting laundry completed and a weight lifting session, then got my first dose of my covid vaccine. ( Super stoked about that) And now it's beautiful and warm outside so after this lunch of mine I am hitting up a bike session too. :smiley: All before work tonight....lol
