Sometimes yes, sometimes no. This time yes, with soy sauce. Chicken and broccoli with Alfredo sauce is good too. Also good with red sauce and parm cheese. I could go on and on........

Question: Do you feel satisfied and somewhat full with the amount you are allowing yourself for each meal?

I don't eat much only because my stomach can't take it. But about twice a year I get the feeling that I want to eat a meal that leaves me feeling like most folks on Thanksgiving. So full you can't even get up from the table to go take a nap. Only I feel miserable for two days. And I am so sorry I even ate just a bite. All I can do is hope it goes through my system really fast.
Not real full, just satisfied. I try & keep myself busy enough so I do not think about it.

Lunch today was a quick burger. Dh was insistant about beef tonight for supper. The 1st time in a very long time I ate 58 grams of protein today. I'm about ready to get to bed now & do not feel in the least bit hungry.

Most days I eat whatever is leftover for lunch, or sometimes a bowl of soup. Nothing too exciting. I do want to share with you what DH has for lunch every weekday, the man eats the same thing every day!! He makes two ham and cheese wraps, bags 8 baby carrots and takes 2-3 cookies (depending on their size). I am posting some pics, I'm going to see if I can get him a second job as a "sandwich artist" what do you think? Lol!!!

He could get a job as a food stylist. That wrap looks appetizing. Makes me want one.

They look delicious! I love cucumber sandwiches, just with cucumber and mayo, but just recently I heard of putting cucumbers on a deli meat sandwich. Yummy! That lettuce looks like romaine? Is it? Looks very tasty and refreshing. I'll bet his co-workers are so jealous.
