I am on my 6th day but only the 3rd on the low calorie diet intake. It has been a challenge to stick to 500 calories but I am doing it and not cheating. I think I am going to start calling my days based on the day I started my restricted calorie diet. Seems more official to me. So today is day 3.
I am also doing well getting my green tea in. I am not a fan of green tea, but found if I drink it cold or add flavored stevia I actually enjoy it.
Today I to see the doctor and weigh in. According to that scale I am down one pound! The doctor said it is early to weight only 3 days into the restricted calorie diet so next week we should see a bigger loss.
According to my scale I am down 5 pounds, probably due to the “loading” or eating everything in site Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
I got a B12 shot today and will get those each week I am on the diet. It’s supposed to give me energy. Funny thing, on this diet I haven’t really been without energy – more just hungry.
The doctor also said that my hunger should subside come tomorrow.
Finding the Dinner Dude has really helped! I don’t have to think I would be as successful without it. I don’t have to think about meals or what I am going to cook.
I still made a meal plan for the few meals I have cooked
so that I am not waiting until the last minute to figure out what I am going to eat.
This has been key for me. Each meal I already know what I am eating. This seems to be a theme for me on any diet.
Back when I was on Weight Watchers and on Jenny Craig I would write the menu for the week. For me, taking the thinking out of the planning made it much easier for me to be successful.
I am going to enjoy the rest of my green tea flavored with Lemon Stevia and head to bed. Proud of myself for another successful day.
