Weekends are usually my worst time for food. I EAT all the time. So, with #belviq , my weekends are not being consumed by food, so now what? Well, I will get in an exercise routine and start doing the things I love.
Today, I ate my granola bar which satisfies me completely. For lunch, I a salad with thinly sliced walnuts (45 calories per 1tbls. They are really good, seasoned and if you have a Kroger, you may find them by the bagged lettuce. Anyway, I had all kind of vegetables and about 1/8 a cup of cheese. I was FULL.
I'm in Houston, it was 105 today so I wanted something cool. I found these cool real fruit small Popsicle and it was perfect.
Tonight, as a reward to my hard work this week, while enjoying time at a friends house, I had a piece of large pizza. Now, you have to understand, normally, I could finish at least 1/2 of the large pizza. My thought was, have left over salad and pizza. So, I ate the one piece of pizza and I could only eat 3 bites of salad. That's it. FULL. It was really good.
I calculated my calories to be about 1000 calories. The pizza was the majority!!
So, do I feel like I am missing out? Absolutely not. I am learning about doing proportions!
I must let everyone know, Belviq is not a magic pill. Well, it is in the fact that it tells your brain your not hungry. I 100% believe that the success will come with diet and exercise. I have many asking about it, etc. If you do not intend to change your eating habits, you will fail. (notice I did not say Belviq will fail). You can't take the pill and eat pizza 3 times a day even if the proportions are cut down dramatically. When you come off Belviq, you probably will resort to your old ways. That's why I believe you MUST train yourself by eating healthy!!
