I started out doing REALLY well, it was easy enough eating cereal for breakfast and a protein bar for lunch and 2 snacks throughout the day, for me that was pretty normal, well normally it would have been a biggger bowl of cereal and a different kind of snack ----whatever.
The problem is when they say you can eat your 3rd meal as you normally would.
That's a big fat lie.
Even I, the nutritionally challenged eater knows that.
It was easy to eat my 3rd meal when hubs was at work baked sweet potato, salad, glass of diet pop, my favorite TV show. But for the last 5 days he's been on a little vacation well, bye bye sweet potato, hello homemade pizza.
I really have been cutting back on my "normal" portions at dinner, and I did do away with the Chocolate/Peppermint Martinis we had grown accustomed to over the holidays.
I also have replaced my real sugar with Splenda, (even if it does have a nasty after taste) exchanged my Christmas cookies for Special K Chips, pretty tasty I might add.
So this morning on day 8 I have officially lost 2.2 pds.......... please hold down the applause,
and I'm OK with that.
The next week will be a little better I hope, seeing as where hubs has to work the night shift all weekend, so there won't be any homemade pizzas, or trips to the diner for breakfast.
