I followed the Simply Filling Technique for another week. I didn't really intend to, it just sort of fell that way ..... and I'm SO glad I did!!! I lost another 3 pounds this week. Ho. Lee. Molee. I am jazzed!!!
This week, I am going to purposefully follow SFT for one more week. The next week, we'll see, since I will be out of town for a training session. It might actually work to my advantage to do Simply Filling that week as well, now that I ponder it.
I wonder if it's the lack of stress from not having to worry about the point value of every little item, of not necessarily having to wonder about the measurements & weights ("okay, was that 3 oz of chicken or 4 from the restaurant ... oh drat!"). Yes, my food choices are a little more limited -- in the sense that I have to track the points if they're not on the Filling Foods list. But that makes me a little more cautious. With the regular Momentum plan, I could justify a splurge by saying, "Oh, I'll just use some of my extra weekly points allowance." Now, it's like, "Do I really want to spend any of my 35 points on THAT?"
Now granted, this week, most of the points I used were on cereal (12 of the 35) and on International Delight creamer for my coffee (4 more). Nearly half the points on two items? EEK. But the cereals I love most aren't Filling Foods .... I had a discussion with someone on that today, and I personally lean to the opinion that uh, yeah. These really ought to be Filling Foods, but I don't make the rules. Kashi GoLean regular, yes. Froot Loops, no...... hello.
Wow! I'm really enjoying using the SFT; I can see myself using it more and more often! So thanks Tisha for the great advice!
