I've enjoyed reading all the threads & thank you for the FAQ link!
I'm on day 3 and unoffically weighed myself at home & it reported 5.5 pounds! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this is accurate but it seems much higher than I expected. I have 15/20 pounds to loose and I guessed it would take 5-7 weeks.
Some things I've learned in a short period of time:
1. I'm already sick of broccoli
I love veg (and always enjoyed broccoli) but unfoturnatley all my other fav. veges were all high sugar content and are restricted...who knew! I blended 1 cup of raw spinach w/ my chocolate shake this morning & it was very good. I added about 6 oz of extra water and a few ice cubes. I'm going to try a salad for lunch veg. I'm hoping I can find a dressing that works for me (I've always made my own & it had too much olive oil for plan).
Are there any good salad dressing links?
2. Hot water with lemon helps me to drink less coffee.
3. I feel very lightheaded much of the day. I'm hoping this goes away. For most of the days I've eaten an extra IP (allowed first week) and this helped.
Anyway thanks for the great ideas, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
