I'm having a hard time. Yesterday (Friday) I was hungry all day, and was dismayed in the morning that the scale showed a pound increase, even though I had been eating "on plan." I think it might have something to do with time of month, but it's not PMS, it's pre-ovulation! It's like I get to have PMS twice a month. Lucky me. Anyway, was doing fine yesterday until after dinner when I couldn't resist something I had made for my kids. I also had too much red wine. Thus, I am feeling even yuckier this morning, and the scale is the same. I will try to power through and then really know if the weight thing is real or not. However, this morning I had an apple (thinking I could transition into Phase 2, many rationales) and then I think the coffee place messed up my latte and gave me a regular instead of nonfat -- it just tasted so good and creamy. Well, nothing I can do about that.
Here's my food journal...
