I woke up this morning, excited to see if I had lost any more weight.
I got on the scale and lost….only 0.4 pounds??? Ugh! You’ve got to be kidding me! I thought you were supposed to lose a good chunk on this phase. I must admit, I had to calm myself down a little bit and remind myself a couple things:
- lost altogether 4 pounds in a week
- don’t crave sweets anymore
- are not as hungry as you usually are
- are finally doing something about your health and are on track to a fitter you
I actually paused on the first thing I wrote. Holy shit, I DID lose 4 pounds in a week. What the hell am I complaining about? The first time around doing this, it felt like I lost more, but now I’m not so sure. I’ve had such a difficult time losing weight that I wasn’t even thankful for the 4 I’ve already lost. I’m so used to the scale going down a “point something” after a week of exercising and eating healthy and finally it’s down 4! I will keep going at this no matter what.
For breakfast this morning I had half a cup of egg whites, tomatoes with basil, 1 smoked turkey deli slice, and fat free cheese all made into an omelet. I also took my 2 tbsps of oat bran and supplemented with the CLA, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and Flax oil.
