New Meal Plan

My therapist has given me a new meal plan that is really scary. She wants me to eat 6 snacks a day instead of 3 meals. I am having to write down what I eat, my mood, and my hunger level.  I do not even know when I am hunger. I am already doing a food journal on Fit Day on my computer so that won't be hard. I feel like all I'll be doing is eating. Then I'll have to do my exercise after each time I eat (My rule). I just don't know if I can do it. How I'm feeling is going to be hard too. I'll just do my best and see where that leads to. I won't let that scale go up!We didn't talk about me weighing everyday. I'm sure that would be a big NO NO.

Well, just do the best that you can and see how it goes. I know adding a new routine to my life scares me because I'm a perfectionist and worry that I won't do it perfect all the time. I just started a fitday account too, but it's difficult for me to keep track, especially if I ate something I shouldn't have. Take care! *hugs* <3

Any change in eating can be really scary. I've been on plans that do 6 snacks and I've been on meals that have done 3 meals and 1 snack (that's what I'm on now). And honestly I like the 3 meals 1 snack one better. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't try the new plan! I think eating is very individualized and what you need may not be what I need. I hope this plan works out and that it helps get you physically and emotionally healthy.

Wishing you well,

I personally can't do the six snacks thing. It may end up working well for you. Give it a try. As for exercising after every meal, that's fine--if it's about 10 minutes each time. Please don't take it to extremes.
