Stay on track! Plan and Prep weekly meals with Food Storage containers

Hi Everyone!!

Happy #Backontrack Sunday! How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the week? 

This is my #backontrack post for today!! I got these to go boxes from Amazon that help with portions and separating food. I made rotisserie chicken, sweet potatoes and green beans with cauliflower. I made 3 for dinners this week. When I'm at the office, my husband takes my son out, or they eat together. My husband is a vegetarian and we eat VERY differently. I must have #protein as #priority, while my husband and son can eat bread, pasta, couscous, and carbs for days and be totally thin. The nerve of them, right? 

Since I know what my #sleeve and #bariatric body needs, I plan for it. This helps me stay the course, and remain successful in my journey and I wanted to share it with you. 

This is planning at its best. This helps me avoid fast food, avoid poor choices and I'm getting my protein, veggies and good carbs.

Planing and priotizing is essential for for your long term success. When we leave choices for our "tired" brains at the end of the day, we may experience regret later because we were caught In a weak moment. Set yourself up for success by planning in advance!!

These are kind of like bento boxes, but reusable, microwavable, BPA free and you can freeze and store food. They are amazing!!

The Beauty within the Body

8/20/2014

I originally had this picture as my temporary avatar. This was shared in my bariatric support group and I could not help but copy it because I felt as it represents my continued work on my mental, physical and emotional transformation. I want to share picture this because this for me represents how I feel my physical and psychological process has been and continues to be. I wonder if this represents how others feel going through this journey as well. I have always felt like a “skinny” person on the inside this big fat suit.

The imagery in this picture really shows the work that continues to go into the journey by illustrating that it is not an overnight weight-loss but a journey of transformation. I am now working on getting out of that fat suit thanks to bariatric surgery. I have also learned that bariatric surgery is not a magic surgery but a tool just like anything else. I am using this tool to the best of my ability to continue to sculpt my body and my mind into the person that I believe myself to be and to be the person I long to become. Transformational change comes from within and can be visible on the outside. I think this picture resonates with me so much because for many bariatric patients including myself, the work is done on the “inside” through behavioral changes, cognitive changes (changing your thoughts), and the result is physical and emotional change. I hope this photo resonates with others as well and is found to be uplifting. I know it has been uplifting for me.

With love and light,

Kristin :)
