This will be my daily journal for the month of June. I will be turning 54 years old in a few days and this is my sixth year of following CALP. Over the years I lost an incredible amount of weight by following this simple program. I look like a normal person who can control their weight and I like my results.
It was so easy, all I had to do was to balance my plate and I was seeing results. I believe I may have been a bit loose with my portions over the years so I am going back to basics. I am going to fix my plate by adding the same amount of protein, vegetables, and carbohydrates before I begin eating. For some reason, I believe that seeing everything on my plate will leave me with a mental image of eating enough because I will be finishing everything on my plate.
I am still following a wheat and gluten free lifestyle. My weight is up because I went off my program a couple more times but now I feel as if I am back to my comfort zone.
No more cream in my coffee. I am now drinking black decaf coffee each morning and I am finally enjoying the taste. Cream was a great transition to drinking coffee again but I went a little crazy with the sweet taste of it enjoying it throughout the day. That is a habit I will not pick up again because I am happier with the delicious, nutritious, taste of food.
