6/12 143.8 nude! I broke through the 145lb barrier!!! True to advice, it took some intentional fluctuations of my diet including a day or two of eating MORE (to keep my metabolism up).”
6/11 did not measure
6/10 did not measure
6/09 145.2 nude in the evening – and that’s AFTER I’d had a small lunch! Whoo-hoo! I wonder if the scale is accurate though, since I don’t believe my PJ’s weight 1.4 lbs.
6/09 146.6 with PJ’s on …those “Thin” bagels must be working (fewer carbs, just as tasty)
6/08 147 with PJ’s on
6/07 did not measure
6/06 did not measure
6/05 did not measure
6/04 145.8…ate an extra bagel
6/02 did not measure…ate an extra hummus wrap (bad me!)
5/30 did not measure
5/28 did not measure
5/27 did not measure
5/26 147.3 with pj’s on
5/25 148.2 or 146.5, my scale keeps changing between the two
May 18: I started my liquid diet today. My rules for my liquid diet are: 1 solid meal per day (these are MY rules!) but just once – like a burrito or a hummus wrap,or even a bagel sandwich. The rest are protein/fiber drinks, which don’t taste too good but maybe that is so one does not get any inspiration to experience a taste sensation. Also, no eating after 8pm is reinstated. This is inspired by other dieters on Facebook.
[So how did I end up at 155, considering that I’ve always considered 150 to be too much for me, and 145 to be a reasonable, if somewhat higher-than-I’d-like, weight? I’d twice ordered Chinese fried rice in the past couple weeks and eaten it each time in one sitting, I had been eating a large chocolate chip cookie every time I went to WholeFoods, and more recently after having tried to abandon buying that one cookie I’d bought a dozen chocolate chip cookies (of lesser quality) instead. I’d also been eating Twizzlers or Red Vines whenever I watched Fringe, since the character Walter eats Red Vines and I knew it always made me want them. I regretted it every time and yet continued to find myself unable to stop. Also, and this is the insidious part because it probably did the most harm without ever seeming like an indulgence: I was eating toast. A lot. At night when I watched a series, I’d be cooking up toast and applying an admittedly diet-non-butter-substance to it, but still, it was carbs, basically pure carbohydrates every night, sometimes 6 to 8 pieces of toast over the course of an hour show. Sometimes with cinnamon. And sometimes it was a bagel, though usually toast. Even though it was a spelt bread, it was adding on to my weight, until one day after a month of not checking the scale, I found myself seeing 150lbs displayed on the digital readout.]
May 21: Still trying to make up the rules on what my diet allows, and it being a Saturday I allowed myself to have popcorn (about 400 calories, real popcorn seeds popped in a brown lunchbag in the microwave, with melted butter and salt added) and an extra protein shake. Probably I should have limited it to the popcorn as the treat.
May 23: I started my mostly-liquid diet on May 18. It is now May 23, and I weigh 149.5. I believe this represents my body weight absent the few lbs of solid-food materials that would usually be inside me. So I have not lost any actual weight yet, but I am marking 149.5 as my starting point. PS AmazingMeal Vanilla Chai w/almond milk tastes great!
May 24: I should have mentioned earlier how much better my one solid meal of the day TASTES now that it is the only solid meal I have to look forward to. I’ve had salmon-salad on bagel as a late-afternoon meal (late lunch? Early dinner?) a couple times and have LOVED it. I also loved, more than usual, garden-burgers. Taste sensations. Even after eating the salmon bagel I didn’t want to rinse my mouth out right away so the taste could linger! But of course, fish breath, so I did after awhile.
