One factor that makes all the difference for me in weight loss is planning my meals. This is reinforced by what happens when I don’t plan my meals: I get hungry, I search for food to buy, and when buying food, I want it to be good and eat it all up. And so, I’ve begun to plan my meals and my favorite tool for planning is this:
Usually for me the hardest is dinner because it’s hard to predict how much cooking I will want to do when I get home from work. This little pad will last me more than a year and focuses on dinners. It even has a great little option for take out (which lately I’ve been accommodating with Naked Pizza – one large cheese slice is only 2 WW points!).
I’ve learned I need to plan for changes to the plan. The week goes by and things happen – and sometimes I am just plain exhausted and can’t even think about something to eat. Having go-to comfort food around, like frozen meals, is essential.
