When I first started this blog I had been on this program for one week. Today was my first weigh in. As soon as I got up, before a drink of water I got on the scale buck naked of course and lost 5 lbs! So excited! I even made it through 4th of July weekend with all that food around. I admit, I even had a cocktail to celebrate this wonderful day. I made sure it was a low calorie cocktail. Vodka, club soda and lime. With a red, white and blue straw. I didn’t go crazy, I only allowed myself one, OK maybe 2. When everyone was munching on chips and dips I was enjoying my Parmesan Cheese Puffs. For dinner I was able to eat a steak like everyone else and instead of the potato salad I had myself the green salad. I truly did not feel deprived that day. The first few days were the hardest of course but after that it got easier and easier. Now that I saw results and lost 5 lbs, I think it will make this coming up week even easier.
My Mantra Last Week: “I’m not missing anything I’ve eaten before. I know what all those foods taste like. I will be able to eat them again”.
