Plateau

 Ugh. I have lost a few pounds and now am at a plateau. I am hopeful that the pizza we had for dinner has just caused me to retain some of the 128 ounces of water I drank yesterday.

Something else I have notices is that I am eating FEWER fruits and veggies than I was say a month ago, which is weird. On one hand, I am eating less of everything. On the other hand, I am definitely choosing other things over fruits and veggies, especially for snacks.

I have 2 weight loss goals this week: weigh myself every day, and EAT BETTER SNACKS.  

I put my nightly chocolate chips in a snack-size Ziploc bag, and this has helped me stay to a strict 2 tablespoons, but I have also noticed that I eat chocolate chips while I am cleaning up the kitchen and listening to my audiobook as a sort of ritual, not because I am hungry. I don't plan to eliminate my chocolate fix, but  maybe I will move it slightly to a time when I am hungrier?

This was DELISH:

Even though I clearly have a drinking problem, this water bottle has been a game-changer-- I drink it twice a day: (Also what the hell-- who decided tucking in a sweatshirt was a good idea?)

You should read Gary Taubes' books. If you want to read just one, start with The Case for Keto. He is an amazing journalist and thinks more critically than some doctors and scientists, honestly. If you're up for two of his books, also read Why We Get Fat. (Though The Case Against Sugar was also really good; the lobbying part was horrifying.)
