Snacking Works!

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!

Oh man, that is wonderful news! I figured out the culprit to my weight gain... diet sodas, Crystal Light and margarine. For the last year I have been drinking regular sodas (here and there), more water and I cook exclusively with real butter. I have gone from a size 9 in Juniors pants/size 4 in Women's pants down to a 7 in Juniors (with space) and I can't wear women's sizes because they fall off of me! I do have to be careful still because I find that I am losing weight easily and don't want to be too skinny. I am so happy to hear about your weight loss and I wish you continued success! xo

About Sean & Joey

Joey and I are just a couple of guys living in San Francisco. I love cooking and we both like trying new things. Planning our meals is one of our "together" things. I hope you enjoy our blog! - Sean


This blog is dedicated to the two most important people in my life - my mom, Ernee Jean O'Brien, and my partner Joey Concepcion. They both have showered me with unconditional support and love and have always encouraged me to be myself. I will always miss my mom and I don't know what I would do without Joey.
