I exercise about 4 times a week, running 2-3 miles each time and sometimes doing some weights...I also garden/walk, etc. I don't like breakfast and I'm not hungry in the morning, so I usually start eating around 11-12. I'm a snacker. I don't like the feeling of full until dinner time. So, I usually munch on carrots and hot sauce. I'll end up eating about 2 pounds of carrots. Sometimes I will throw in an apple or a cucumber. Then at dinner it's potatoes or a dish from Jeff's dvd. Last night I made his mexican fiesta...but I served the kids and husband's over rice...I had mine over greens and a little rice...about 1/2-3/4 cup total. (Beans...no matter how I make them wreak havoc on my intenstines...and yes I've tried every method out there to make them more digestively friendly. I end up look like I'm 4-5 months pregnant when I really haven't eaten much...maybe 1/3 cup.) Then before bed I usually have banana ice cream. (1 frozen banana + 3/4 cup frozen mixed fruit.) And that's my day. (My favorite dinner is 3-5 small potatoes or 2 medium size with ketchup.) I haven't budged on the scale. I eat super healthy all of the time (except on Christmas and Easter) and it hasn't gotten me anywhere. Any ideas on how I can get the scale to budge? Thanks so much in advance!!!!!
