I'm still hanging in there - on day 5 of Phase 1
I was home with my sick daughter for 2 days and I have to say it's alot harder to try to keep on the diet when I'm at home because my DH has tons of food I am trying to avoid all over the place.
He is being very supportive though and will try to keep his bread hidden so I don't have to look at it.
I missed my Wed gym visit so I wasn't able to weigh myself, but i'll go tomorrow. I refuse to buy a scale - I hate them.
I can tell that i've lost some weight, because I can tell that my bras are not as tight. I can also tell in my tummy.
As soon as I start to notice a difference i'm going to post a photo on the before and after pages.
I'm not feeling so great myself, my throat hurts and I started to get a sinus headache. The weather just got really cold here and I usually get a sinus infection this time of year. I took some vicks sinus and it cleared up, but I think i'm going to loose my voice.
I've lost my appetite and I feel like I'm forcing myself to eat. I made a batch of split pea soup - sauteed some onions and garlic first then added the split peas and let it simmer for about 1 hour. It came out absolutely delish! I froze some for lunch next week and will try to have more options available which will keep me on track.
I am having a hard time eating all the veggies, so I usually just add a glass of V8 to my meal (mostly breakfast).
My plan for todays meals are:
B: 3 eggs scrambled, V8 juice, coffee
S: celery with natural pnut butter
L: Split Pea soup, 4 slices of low fat turkey, red peppers and cucumber slices
S: 8 Macadamia nuts (no salt) (my favorite nut in the whole world)
D: Lemon baked chicken breast, salad with lemon and olive oil dressing
S: Sugar free strawberry flavored jello
All the best,
