I know you can do whatever you make up your mind to do including losing weight.
I went shopping today for groceries and believe me it was tough! I stood in the cookie aisle and salivated for almost 5 minutes pondering over the possibility of buying a pack of Keebler Caramel, Coconut, chocolate Cookies. I KNOW these are a trigger food- I cannot eat only one and walk away-But yet I stood there. Then I thought about my progress this week and how once the cycle of positivity is broken there may be no going back for days or even weeks or months. So I didn't buy them. YAY for me! Then I decided to hold that thought while I went through other areas of the store.
Maintenance is what it will be but for now eating this way is helping me lose one pound per day! That is because I have a lot to lose! The closer to goal the greater the challenge will be. This is really a lifestyle change which it must be to lose and maintain. Sooner or later the weight loss will slow down or even stop but currently my body is telling me it is liking what I am doing for it.
You mentioned ripe tomatoes. I love this time of year because we live out of the garden.
I canned Raspberry Jam and froze berries for pie, canned some kosher dill and bread and butter pickles. My husband froze green beans, broccoli , cauliflower, and I froze some zucchini. I like the zucchini in spaghetti sauce and in home made vegetable soup. This winter that soup will be a wonderful option.
You please be well and stay safe, as well.
