One serving….

I have a question to pose……

Is one serving every going to be enough? I am trying so very hard to track (I keep forgetting to put it in myfitnesspal, sorry Deb) and measure and eat just one serving but it’s so hard. I do not get full on one serving of most foods. I know I can fill it in with salad but I don’t want to be the Easter bunny. I am always hungry. It’s not a bad thing, I just look at it every time my bellies rumbles it’s the good cells eating the fat ones and they are running for their lives but being hungry all the time bites too.

It’s just a question. Maybe I’m not eating the right foods and need to concentrate on lower calories with bigger volume except lettuce, spinach (all that leafy bunny food).

I did go with Caron’s advice and bought this yesterday….of course I can’t remember the name but it starts with an i and has a j in it too. It’s suppose to taste like an apple/pear. I’m game, I need something different.


And I’ve gone back to tracking my steps. Sunday was 9843 and yesterday…..


So I’m not doing bad. The scale isn’t moving much but I’m pretty sure the muscles are returning. Not tons of them but a few and they do weigh a bit more than the fat. My clothes are nicer too so that scale can just sit there and taunt me, I’m not listening to hard to it.

Okay my alarm went off 3 minutes ago, I’m suppose to be out that door and at the bus garage in a few minutes and it’s a 15 minute drive. Gotta go.

Take care my friends and have an awesome day. It’s going to be a good one, it’s time.



  1. Wow! Almost 15,000 steps in one day is awesome. I rarely get to 10,000, but I try. Hope you don't hate the jicama. I peel it, cut it into sticks and keep it in a sandwich bag to eat for a snack.

  2. Julie, It might help if you add more protein. Protein is filling and satisfies you longer. Eating too many carbs can increase your appetite. I've learned that the hard way.

  3. One serving is hard for me too when I try and do it. I wish you luck in that. Good job with your steps though. That's awesome!!
