First, I had settled into my eating regime quite well initially and then the third week was like BOOM! Hungry all the TIME!! And I started to worry, was I pregnant? I mean it’s not really POSSIBLE (this month) for that but I worried!! So I talked to a friend about it and what they said makes sense, I was reaching the end of my stored calories from before I made my eating changes. So my body was communicating with me “Christine I am hungry! Darn it give me chocolate! Why aren’t yoooouuuuu?” And I struggled! I gained a pound my next weigh-in. But once I realized why this was occurring, I felt like I was in more control and I plowed on. I ate the right things. I drank that water. And voila! I lost that pound the next weigh-in and another on top of it.
So far I have lost 14.6 pounds in 3.5 weeks. I lost another 2.6 pounds in my weigh-in today from Saturday. This is SO exciting! I can see it in my face, my pants, my work clothes. I am almost down a size.
Coming soon: I will write about planning ahead and how the heck I can stay on-top of my food journal. I am not naturally good at either.
