Another Steak Day

I have felt this coming on for a while! I should have followed my own good advice, but alas! I succumbed to the temptation of the Halloween Candy. It's been a slow climb, but today I hit exactly 2 pounds over my LIW.

One of the things I like the best about the HCG diet is that it has restructured the way I think about food and it gives me a checkpoint at which I can stop my slide into old habits and re-evaluate my eating patterns.  I like knowing that I can survive without food for a couple of meals (there was a point where I didn't believe this) and that I get an immediate reward-the dropping of 2-3 pounds- for doing it.

I have noticed that whenever I start to go up, it's because I'm slacking off on my veggies and I am eating way too much sugar. A Steak Day is a good time to look at those patterns that set you off! If you are in Maintenance, make sure you are keeping a food journal and if you see something that is triggering a gain, make a change! Let us know if you have any good advice for avoiding these food traps! Wish me Steak Day begins...
