Well, which do you want first? 😉
Considering it’s not really good or bad news for YOU, you probably don’t really care, huh? Ok, I’ll get on with it then!
The good news is actually two-fold.
- When I weighed in last Friday for my 3rd week official total, I was down a total of 12 lbs. Yay!
- When I weighed in this Monday, I was already down 3.5 more lbs since Friday, for a total of 15.5 lbs!! O_O!!
Ok, so that’s a direct lead-in to the bad news (which is also two-fold), with the first part being that I spent the weekend with a stomach bug, and it’s WHY I lost all that weight. Ick.
I don’t expect that weight loss to stick, as I’m certain that once I’m fully re-hydrated it will go back up. However, this morning when I got on the scale (after managing to eat almost all of my required food for the day and getting in all 80 oz of water yesterday) I was down another whole pound from yesterday morning. I didn’t expect that; I really thought I would be back up. So I guess we’ll see just how much comes back by the end of the week.
The second part of the bad news is that I would just kill for a pizza right now. I am still so weak, trying to get my strength back and eating light just isn’t cutting it!! I cannot shake being hungry and I want so much to eat something filling, warm and comforting.
I brought a salad for lunch today and knew this would be an obstacle, so I tried to make it as appetizing as possible, using one of my fruits for the day by putting raspberries on it and bringing raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Not helping!! I am forcing it down with my Diet Sunkist. 😦
If I were further along in the diet (like, say, 3 months or more), I would so just eat the stupid pizza. But since I’m still in the first month, I just cannot bring myself to go off plan and backslide. I want the 15 lb milestone to stick for the week!!
So, I will continue to choke down my salad for lunch, because I know I will enjoy some leftover turkey tacos (which are actually VERY VERY YUMMY!) for dinner tonight. Then I will have gotten through another day and hopefully tomorrow I will feel better, have more strength and staying on plan won’t be so hard, right? 😉
