Four days later, I finally made is past day one! Today I drank 12 cups of water, I didn't touch a diet soda, and I stayed out of all sugar and processed foods. I had a headache from caffeine withdrawals since I drank so much diet soda over the weekend. Outch. Mental note to self, don't get so carried away with the diet soda. I'm going to go off of it for a few days. I always think that I should get around to giving up soda, but I just am not willing to do that yet. I can give it up for several days and even months at a time, but to never drink a soda again? That is just a recipe for failure, because I know I am going to do it. Anyway, I was more than a little shocked at what my disastrous four days did to my weight. The scale flashed 151 this morning and I about freaked since that is 8 pounds higher than on Friday! I know a lot of it is water weight, I was feeling really bloated yesterday (TMI I know). Water retention from all the soda. I was expecting something around the 148 range. It will be interesting to see how hard it is to get back down to 143. Now I know what a four day splurge does to me and believe me, I won't be doing that again! I thought I had kissed the 150s goodbye forever!
Today was a good day to eat light for dinner since it was Day one and Matt had school tonight so I made the yummy turkey gyros for lunch and had a shake for dinner. I usually have a shake or a sandwich for lunch so that is why my light dinners as of late have all been shakes.
Now that I've made it past day one I should be good to go for a while. Now is the time when I actually start to get skinny! I feel like all this time I have been getting less and less fat, but since I entered into my healthy weight range I have started feeling thin for the first time! It is very exciting and I am going to cling onto that as motivation to stay on track.
