I’m mostly through my seventh day on this diet. It’s been a lot of fun seeing such rapid results and I’m currently on cruise control.
My current total weight loss is 7.8 pounds. I’m starting to experience subtle but definite changes in how my clothes are fitting. The pants I’m wearing are slightly baggier and the shirt I’ve got on doesn’t bunch in some places like it used to.
Like my coach said, once I get through the grueling first few days, then motivation to stay on the diet is easy because you’re seeing results.
I highly doubt this rate of weight loss will keep up. I’m on such a low caloric diet that it’s not totally possible to go out an work out.
One of the neat things I’ve noticed since starting is that the work week is a little easier to lose the weight. This is just an assumption but, my guess is that it’s because I work at a stand up desk most of the day. I burn a few extra calories where most people are sedentary.
Over the weekend was tough for me. We were out with friends on Saturday and Sandy’s sister spent Sunday and Monday with us.
On Saturday we went up to Julian (a small mountain town not far from San Diego) and picked pumpkins. The plan was to meet at the pumpkin patch, then everyone was going to go eat pizza and apple pie (which is what Julian is famous for). Instead of torturing myself, we decided we would leave right after the we picked some pumpkins.
Well, plans changed during the hour and fifteen minute drive up and we were eating pizza, first thing. Aaahhhh!! One of my favorite junk foods and I have to watch.
For the best results on this diet, it’s best to stick to it strictly. Knowing myself pretty well, one slip up can sometimes mean a downhill spiral. I could have ordered a salad, but there’s usually cheese, bread and sugar somewhere in there. I didn’t need, it. I could drink my ice water and be happy. And I was.
The results are showing and it’s exciting. I’m at the point where I’ll be posting less and less about this. It’s become normal to me and it’s not very hard. One hundred ounces of water a meal every two and a half hours and I’m good.
