Went to my endocrinologist yesterday. She upped my Synthroid dose and suggested I lost weigh by lowering my carb intake and exercising more. SOOOOOOO...I started a daily journal, writing down everything I eat and drink. With all the things I don't eat and drink I felt frustrated at first, but okay after I relaxed about it. It is time. Sure my quality of life has greatly improved over the past few years of finding out what I should eliminate, but I am still overweight. Time...day one is going okay. I feel good, not deprived. Day one...
I made chicken stir fry for dinner. I had three cooked skinless, boneless chicken breasts. I cut them up. Made Jasmine rice. Stir fried garlic, onion, carrots, celery, cashews and mushrooms; at the end I added the chicken and sea salt and pepper.
I thought I took a picture on my cell phone, but I must not have saved it. Believe me, it was delicious, and very colorful.
Instead of having more than one serving I am trying to stop after one plateful.
