A Fresh Start

What's a girl to do when she's no longer pregnant? Diet :-(

One of the things I love about being pregnant is that I am free from the daily thoughts about how I'm too heavy, how I need to eat less, how I need to lose weight, etc. I also seem to just feel a whole lost less hungry when I'm pregnant. I can only eat about half what I'd normally eat and have zero interest in snacking or eating when I'm not hungry, which is not normally the case. Add to that all the weight I lose from the morning sickness and it's like the perfect state of being for me. Being back to the place where I need to consider dieting is just one more layer that is the crappiness of the miscarriages.

I've completely given up on trying to find the "right" diet and given up on burdening myself with coming up with a meal plan, deciding on menus, grocery shopping and cooking. How is that possible? It's called the Fresh Diet. Each night someone comes to my home and delivers a nice little cooler full of food for me to eat the next day:

Today's meals were actually all quite good. I had ricotta filled crepes with strawberries for breakfast, a philly cheese steak wrap for lunch, garlic toast crisps for a snack, raspberry chicken with whole wheat pasta and spinach for dinner and chocolate-chip, cappuccino cheesecake for dessert.

Tomorrow's food looks pretty good as well (pizza for lunch!) so I'm excited to taste it all. Well, excited for everything except the banana which is spotted and I'm type who likes her bananas rather on the green side of things.
