Ok - so it's been 10 days now, and I am down 5 pounds!!!! I seriously do NOT believe it!!!!!!
Actually, I got on the scale this morning and it said 190 (which'd be 6 pounds down) but I don't want to believe that just yet. :)
But wow. Again - this is NOT easy - yesterday I wanted some fruit so damn bad it wasn't funny! BUT again, like I posted yesterday, I know that eventually I will be allowed to re-introduce - and until then I've just got to do this thing right.
Dan really wants to see me succeed at this, I know he does - but, last night he did say, "don't buy any special low-carb products off the net until you've stuck with it longer" - which I understand where he's coming from and I couldn't agree more. We were looking at carbsmart.com online last night and there's a few products I definitely want to purchase, but again, like he said, not until I'm sure that this is the direction I want to STAY going in...
And I really think it is!!! While it's hard in the fact that I reallllllllllly want some fruit or something sweet - it's SO easy NOT counting calories!!!!
At first - and granted, it's ONLY been a week and a half - but last week, at the beginning of the week, yes - admittedly I expected the weight to "fall off" like I've seen for some people online - like on day 2 or 3 for some people, they'd already lost 5 pounds - and my scale wasn't budging - and believe me, i KNOW better - but it's the whole "i want it now" mentality - and I KNOW I need to be patient (but i'm not a patient person, at ALL)...but again - I know it WILL happen. It's been 10 days now and I AM down 5 pounds!!! that's an average of 1/2 a pound a day - and I'm TOTALLY cool with that! I don't expect that to keep happening - but it is January 12, 2009 as of today. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE to hit my goal of 160 (30 more pounds) by June 30 - which is when we are going back to Cedar Point (where Dan proposed last year!).
and...if at ALL possible - if my body will even go this low - I'd be extremely elated to be 150 (40 pounds down) by Thanksgiving - which is when we see his family again (the holidays).
I KNOW I can do it - I just have to take it one day at a time. :)
