Well, at least healthy snacking does. For the last week I have been trying my hand at what everyone says is the healthy way to eat - small meals all day long. I feel like I am snacking all day, but I guess you could say I am having small meals. About six a day. I wrote about doing this last week and pretty much stuck with that plan. I have oatmeal in the morning, then small snacks of fruit, crackers, yogurt, cheese and nuts throughout the day. (Not all at once, of course.) I also have a small lunch. In addition to all that I am drinking at least six glasses of water a day.
So, the results? Well, I just about peed my pants when I stepped on the scale and saw I had lost 6.4 pounds. This is AFTER Joey and I had a piggy brunch on Saturday! SIX POINT FOUR pounds! I had to get off the scale and move it to another room to make sure. Unbelievable.
I know loosing isn't going to be a weekly thing, but I am sticking to this small meal business. I feel better and I am obviously losing weight. Plus, I am actually enjoying all the snacks. The key is planning, planning, planning. Speaking of, I had better go pack up that Laughing Cow!
