Cycle 1 Day 09
Down 4lbs and a half inch each on abs, hips, and thighs. I have had a couple episodes of cheating but other than that have stayed on the path. Getting to the point I need to add in some exercise. I have learned from doing the diet before not to jump into the exercise the first week because of the huge crash in energy. Feeling much better this week and ready to get moving.
Just a reminder, that no matter what you read on tumblr:
Losing weight is hard
Changing your lifestyle or fitness levels is hard
You will make mistakes
You will learn a lot about yourself and those around you
Its OK and normal to be scared that you will fail - lets talk about it
Its OK to be honest about your fears - lets talk about it
Don’t be afraid to change your method or direction if its not working
You don’t have to pretend your journey is easy to make your followers happy
Be humble. Love yourself.
Back at it… Day 2, cycle 1
Had to restart the diet. The last year and a half of my life have been so over the top stressful that I had gained back 18 lbs of the 25 lbs that I had previously lost on the 17 day diet. I started yesterday. My best friend is doing it with me. We started on the same day this time which was nice. Usually she is lagging and is a week behind me.
Food Diary for Day 1
Kefir fruit smoothie with Stevie and 1 tsp honey (yes, I know it isn’t on the list but I have done it every other time I have been on the diet and it’s been ok).
2 hard boiled eggs
salad w/ mixed dark greens, cucumber, tomato, and balsamic dressing
chicken breast w/ roast cauliflower, garlic, tomato, and mushrooms
1 venti iced green tea w/ stevia
4-5 bottles of dasani water (lost count at the end of the day)
Starting weight: 161.9
weight on day 2: 159
didn’t do measurements yesterday…will do them today.
Seeing Cate Blanchett give a handjob to that statue was the highlight of the SAG awards.
cycle 1, day 17
I haven’t been able to get past 6 lbs lost this time and it is really starting to piss me off. Today is the last day of cycle 1 and I am hoping that the cycle 2 “confusion” will kick things in gear. So frustrating. I need to get another 10 down to be at my last low point. I would like to go at least 5 more than that though before my reunion. I have really been lagging on exercising and I am pretty sure that is a big factor in being stuck too.
Cycle 1 day 7
Down 6lbs so far. Been holding steady with the diet. Gradually getting less hungry. 41 days til the reunion. Very happy that our summer vacation up north will be right when we head into cycle 3 instead of the beginning of cycle 2 like last summer. That was a rough trip. I gained back half of what I had lost and had to go back to cycle 1 for a week. At least I should be pretty well down to my goal weight by then and will have an extra week between the end of the vacation and the reunion to go back to cycle 1 if need be. I would really like to hit a size six by then. I am an 8/10 now depending on the clothing. I’ve got this amazing little black velvet burnout dress that I bought a million years ago and swore someday I would fit into. I was able to fit into it when I hit my smallest point last year. I think it should be quite comfy after this go around.
