October 20, monitoring calories

Okay. It's evening. I've entered my food in at sparkpeople and I can see I'm within range for calories, fat, carbs, and protein. Sadly I look into my evening and I'm sure I'll want to nosh on something. I can already feel hunger coming up. I could just go over on calories and eat more, grab a beer, some noodles from that Italian restaurant next to where I parked, some wine tonight... but I don't want to. I feel like I want to end the day within range again. I weighed myself in the morning and I am conscientious of having gained weight and not lost it back, and I chastise myself for giving in to temptations today at lunch and having too large a bowl of cereal for breakfast... but I still have the chance to end the day within range. There's maybe enough for a bite of cottage cheese, maybe half an orange? And just try to let that get me through the night. Good for me.

Good for you (echo,echo,echo)...
You could always eat a hard boiled egg...70 calories and protien and fat...and it fills you up and keeps you that way...hope you make it how you want it.

I'm sure your Wednesday morning weigh in (unless your one of those civilized people who don't need to weigh in once a day) reflected your self-control. Is there such thing as too big a bowl of cereal? Not in my house.
