And chips and the cheese stuff. But - I did switch the mashed potatoes for rice and beans so I could at least get a bit more fiber with that starch AND I only ate one of the homemade flour tortillas that came with the meal.
I was very full afterwards and it was my main meal of the day. I had a small snack of some peanuts while D and I played cribbage yesterday evening and that was it.
The scales were down a lb today. I really do think this is why daily weighing is important: it gives you a picture of what might be going on: sudden and big (more than 1 lb) weight gains/losses have more to do with water retention and hormones than eating too much or just enough to lose weight. I think seeing the sodium gain is important. If I'm experiencing a sodium gain, I'm eating out too often and indulging in carbs too often. It's a good check point and helps keep me honest with myself.
Today's food plan - yogurt and sweet potato for breakfast, soup (chicken broth with shrimp and some broccoli & quinoa) for lunch, a protein shake for my afternoon snack, and roasted chicken, broccoli and some form of starch for dinner. Definitely doable - especially if I get my butt downstairs now to make my soup.
