Down almost a full pound this week which is amazing considering this has been my worst week eating-wise since I started. In fact I'm not sure why my weight didn't go up this week. The fact that it didn't is a testament to the power of this way of eating.
I really can't remember back to what I ate last Friday and Saturday, but Sunday was Mother's Day and I went to the Waffle House and bought the works so I could serve my mom breakfast in bed. I got waffles and biscuits and gravy and hash browns and bacon and sausage and scrambled eggs. Not that we ate it all that morning, but the leftovers were carbs and they set me up for hunger that I never really got back undercontrol until yesterday. Wednesday was really bad as I gave in and bought some candy, including a bag of Blow Pops and then proceeded to eat all of it before the day was over. (Shades of my old behavior creeping back in. See? I told you I was the world's worst carbaholic.)
But that was a bit too much and I was totally put off by sugar after that. Didn't eat much yesterday as I just wasn't that hungry. Still, I have to wonder how I managed to drop any weight after all that. Plus I only exercised once this week. It's been a busy week, plus my knee was hurting more from what I'm sure was transfat in the baked goods I ate this week.
Still, live and learn and I think what makes this diet (way of eating) so different that any other I have tried is how easy it is to get back to it after you have messed up. I wish I could eat some bacon and eggs today, but my stupid body wants to be allergic to eggs so I'll just have to settle for the bacon. So for lunch I'm going to fry up some bacon and then cook some chicken in the grease and have that on some lettuce along with tomatoes, avocado and strawberries. Yummm. Gotta love this diet.
So while I was kind of hoping to be down 50 lbs by my birthday in a week and a half, I knew that would be pushing it. Now I'm just going to be happy if I hit 40 lbs which I'm not really worried about doing. I may even make it to 42 or 43lbs. We'll see!
