Yep. That is me. I had a hard time admitting I was obese let alone SEVERELY obese. But that is what I am: Severely obese. To become just regularly obese, I need to weigh in at 278.20. The scale goes to hundredths of a pound. I think that is crazy, but, eh, I didn’t make it. I am hoping that within two weeks, I will be under number. I guess I am thinking of it as a mini-goal.
After my frightening episode with water weight, I decided I could use a push. For all those who know me, you know that I have made the decision to not be on a “diet.” I will take no pills, I will not starve myself, or going on crazy exercising binges.
I am in this for the long haul. These are life-changers, not “this moment” changers. I deserve to be healthy.
With that out of the way, I chose to do a detox. I am on day two, drinking my disgusting lunch smoothie as I type this. It is not as bad as yesterday, thank God. It took me two hours to get this down yesterday. It is pretty huge.
I have not been hungry, but the desire to EAT SOMETHING has been really strong. This is supposed to clear me out of toxins, help me be able to absorb nutrients, and help rev my metabolism. I think three days is worth it. I am getting practically all the cals I would normally eat, just without meat, carbs, or dairy. There is fat and protein in the smoothies and LOTS of veggies and fruit.
Last night I made H2B BLTs for supper. Holy F*CK did those smell soooo gooood. The bread, the bacon… I did not go off my plan. I was proud. Tonight will be harder because I am making gravy, and everyone knows you have to taste gravy to make sure it has the right amount of salt, seasonings, etc.
Wish me luck!
