I have been sticking to the 500 calories/day and surprisingly I don't feel hungry at all. I did cheat last night, I had a bite of a cookie that I was giving to the baby. The only thing about this diet that I am not very fond of is the "no sugars" rule. I have been eating apples, oranges, and strawberries (the only fruit I can have) to try to get rid of my cravings for sugar. Last night I just had a weak moment and hopefully I can stay away from sugar for the rest of this month.
So now for the reveal of this week's weight lose............ I am down from 180lbs (on tuesday) to 172.5 lbs today. I am seeing results and loving that my pants are starting to need a belt to stay up.
I have really been having fun trying to come up with recipes that I can actually eat. I cooked 100g of chicken in crushed tomatoes with a little garlic powder, and had cucumbers on the side for lunch yesterday and it was awesome! Then for supper, I had a 100g steak (salt and pepper for taste) with a salad of romaine, iceberg, spinach, and cucumbers. I do cheat a little with the salad because I hate salad!! I dip my fork in fat free Italian dressing and then eat a forkful of salad. It gives just enough flavor that I can gag the salad down. LOL!
My husband LOVES to cook and bake, but I told him that I will look after myself until I am done this diet. He looked heartbroken! I think he likes to show his love for me by making me my favorite breakfasts, lunches, and suppers. He even asked me if I could have egg whites, which I said yes to last night. He let me sleep in this morning and made me scrambled egg whites and salsa on top. I felt really bad, but I had to tell him that I could only have herbal tea in the mornings. He is the best husband ever, so he just sat down and ate it himself. :)
More pounds to lose! Keep me going with your comments :) Thanks
