Day 26 – 128.9 lbs – 500 Calorie Day. Don’t remember much. Sorry.
Day 27 – 128 lbs – 500 Calorie Day. Still nothing. I guess if there was anything great to say, I’d say it. I am so tired of this, but I haven’t had any binge sessions lately. I guess that’s good news. I do have little tiny cheats now and then, though. (a tiny taste of one of my kids’ granola bars, a single sugar free mint) Hey, it’s a far cry from what I was doing a month ago!
Day 28 – 128 lbs – 500 Calorie Day. I had a bit of a melt down this morning with hubby. My first one. I had eaten SO amazinly the day before and expected to drop a pound. I literally had saved all my calories for dinner so that I could go out to eat with my sisters who were in town. I was STARVING! And then, I ate really light and healthy with them. I had a tiny scoop of tuna salad (yes, it had mayo in it), a little salad (yes, it had a little blue cheese and some walnuts in it), and a half a mug of tomatoe soup. I thought I did amazing! But crap! NO! I stayed the same. I was only frustrated this morning because I had been miserable the day before and hoped for a reward.
Day 29 – 128 lbs – 500 Calorie Day. 3 days in a row at 128. I was upset at first, until I had the realization that I am having my period! Is this the reason? I ate exceptionally well yesterday again, and expected results, and yet I didn’t see any. Am I retaining water? Perhaps. See, this is why I cheat sometimes. It seems that even if I eat perfectly, it doesn’t always result in lost weight. There are other factors at play here. I’m suspecting that my “melt-down” yesterday morning had a little something to do with my period. Oh yeah! That!
Now, I do have to say that it is very fun getting dressed in the mornings. Everything, I mean EVERYTHING fits now! Some things are even too loose, and look dumpy. I am loving that! I can’t remember the last time I felt like this. Is it all worth it? Yes! And I knew it would be. I complain all the time about it, because its SO hard, but this all happened in a month’s time. That blows my mind! I put on a dress this morning for church and realized that the last time I wore it (which was probably 6 weeks ago), it was rather tight around the hips and butt. I’m happy. And miserable. Can I be both? 🙂
