Reducing Day 2: Thoughts and Menu

Day 1 of the restart of Kimkins was not completly on plan.  I found ice cream in the freezer and had a few bites before I came to my senses and tossed it down the garbage disposal.  It makes me mad that I can not have this stuff in the house without wanting it.  David does not like ice cream so I did not feel bad about him not having it.  He is on weight watchers so we will not have that in the house while we are on our plans.  I do not think there is anything else around here to mess me up.

On a good note, I woke up today to find I have lost 3 pounds so far. 

For dinner last night I prepared baked chicken, broccoli, and sautéed onions (potatoes for David).  I find that I need to be very careful with onions as they are a very carby veggie.  When I am on a LC plan I find I get most of my carbs from veggies.

I found these old "reducing" advertisements while browsing the Vintage Ad Browser site.  I think it is funny how, not many of them, say "diet".  Most are advertising a "reducing" plan, not a "diet". 

There were so many to choose from.  I am sure I will be sharing a few as the months go by.  This goes to show that "reducing" is not just a trend for this generation.  We have always wanted to find the miracle cure.  There is no miracle cure.  We all know how to loose the weight.  We know we have to make healthy choices and keep the "junk" out of our bodies.  The matter of doing all of this, is another story.  There are some who have addictions, control issues, some who just enjoy food too much, etc.  It is a never ending battle for alot of us.

The menu for today is:
Breakfast: 3  Scrambled Eggs w/ cheese, 2 turkey sausage patties
Lunch:  Leftover Baked Chicken  w/ 2 T salsa
Snack:  EAS Chocolate Shake
Dinner:  Tuna Patties w/ lc ketsup, green beans

As I get more into my plan I will drop the egg yolks from my diet and do away with the cheese.  I loose better when leaving the cheese off of my menu.

I have already had one "big pink cup" of water.  My "big pink cup" holds about 20 oz.  I am trying to get at least 5 of those in a day.  Getting my water in is another issue, I used to be able to drink drink drink without thinking.  Now I seem to be less thirsty cause I have to think about it.  

Ok....I am sure I will be back with another post a bit later.  I seem to like separating my posts into topics....and this was my "reducing / menu" topic for the day.
