I'm trying to shake up my diet a little, and still settle at a calorie count that takes off the weight. I am supposed to be eating somewhat less protein and somewhat more carbs, and yet, still lose weight. This is because high protein diets are not good for kidney stones...well they're very good for FORMING kidney stones but not so good for preventing them. So the doctor would really like me to eat less protein. It's so darn complicated, because I know that I can't lose weight if I don't keep my carb count manageable, but I don't want kidney stones either. It's all very annoying. So tonight for dinner I had Whole Foods version of Cheerios with yogurt and berries. Strange, I know -- but I wasn't in the mood for anything really, but I was hungry. And I knew I shouldn't thaw out a burger or steak because, well, I'm trying to lower my protein. Grr....

I'm really having trouble managing hunger these days. I'm hungry a lot, even though it seems like I am eating a lot of food. I mean I'm not binging or anything, but I'm eating what should be plenty of food to keep me full, yet I find myself hungry. I am pretty sure my weight is fairly stable, although I haven't had the nerve to weigh myself since before my birthday celebrations began. But my clothes fit fine, so the most I could have gained is a couple of pounds. The two biggest changes in the past couple of months has been the change in my levothyroxine dosage, and I'm wondering if that's really made a difference, if I'm burning more calories and so I'm hungrier, and the fact that ofr the past two weeks since the kidney stone episode, I've been drinking a lot more fluids, which should keep me fuller, right?

Next week, assuming I continue to feel as well as I do now, I'm going to bump up my exercise. Don't know how that will affect how hungry I feel, but I know that when I was exercising regularly, I had more energy, and I slept better, so I want to get back into that routine. Who knows? -- maybe if I do enough exercise, those stupid kidney stones will exit finally.

So yes I really am back. Having a little trouble getting my calorie count down again, but seem to be making a little progress in that direction each day. I would like to keep myself below 1400 calories every day. I know a lot of people eat less than that each day as a weight loss strategy, but I have come to the conclusion that the more days I feel hungry during the day, the more likely I am to fall off the wagon. If I plan my food carefully, including plenty of protein and fiber, I don't feel hungry, and I slowly lose weight. I think for me this is a better plan than the old days when I would try to eat 900-1200 calories per day, but I couldn't sustain that for long enough to lose the weight and keep it off. I had plenty to eat today -- in fact, I ate several things I could have done without entirely because I went to tea at a friend's house and had a few chocolate-covered almonds, which didn't fill me up for my afternoon snack, so then I had to eat some jerky on top of that. Should have just brought my jerky to tea!
