Day 13 HCG diet
Thursday, January 19, 2017
Hello fellow Spark people!
I am feeling pretty good today! The only bad thing was that I forgot to bring my lunch to work today.... Thank goodness I had an apple in my fridge... Not that that is a normal lunch, but it is better than nothing! School was having pizza and that is a big no no on my diet. I woke up this morning at 247.2 so I lost .6 since yesterday. I am just glad it is a loss. I decided on a salad for dinner with hard boiled egg and some fat free turkey with fat free Italian dressing. It was delicious! I am also trying to remember to drink all my water. It is easier to do when I am home because I can go to the bathroom whenever I need to... Not something that Teachers get to do LOL! I have been doing pretty good at tracking my food. I have to say that I have been tempted to eat things I should not. I am hoping that part gets easier. My son's birthday is today and he wanted my home made shells and cheese for dinner. It smelled so good... I was so good that I even had him come over and try the pasta to see if it was done. Last time I ate it by accident...just out of reflex. I am trying my best not to sabotage myself. The one thing that I noticed this morning when I was eating an apple... they taste so much sweeter now that I don't eat sugar often. The one thing that I am a little disappointed in is that my husband is not being as strict. He does not worry about eating things that we are not supposed to eat on the diet. It is frustrating to me. He is 6 ft. 2 in. and weighs 10 lbs less than me now! Of course he did start on this diet much earlier than me. He actually plateaued for about 2 months. He just recently started losing weight again. Most likely because I am doing most of the cooking again. When I was not on the diet and he was, I would cook for the kids and I and he would make something separate. The one thing he would always do is make steak stir fry. I told him that he should only have 4 oz at the most of steak, but he would cook 6-8 oz anyway. He will be at his goal weight at 210, 27 more pounds to lose. I have at least 97 lbs to lose myself. I am hoping not to plateau. We shall see.
I guess I should make some monthly goals for myself... I just don't know really know what is a realistic goal while on this diet. I have lost 12.2 lbs in less than 2 weeks. If I keep going at this rate I will have lost more than 24 lbs in one month and will be about 235 lbs. If I were to lose 20 lbs a month then I would be at my goal of 150 in 5 months. Just in time for my 40th birthday!
