I guess this counts as a thread *bump*? I'm not even sure what I googled to find this thread last night, but I think it helped.
I had not had any rituals, outside of wearing the same dress each week (I am P1, Week 7, Day 1). I'm super excited to be losing, but some weeks would be a little frustrated with the disparity between my home scale and my clinic scale, which varied from 3 pounds, in favor of my home scale, to half a pound, in favor of the clinic scale (this morning).
My WI is at 11am so holding off on breakfast is not a good option. Also, pounding a shake around 9:30, on the fly, not so much either. So, going forward here is what I plan to do:
*night-before dinner - sautéed shrimp over salad; lots and lots of water for the rest of the night
*before bed snack by 8pm (sometimes this is as late as 11:30pm, so probably not so good the night before WI)
*am of WI - shake or drink by 7am
*water and coffee until 9am
*11 am WI
All of the above just made me "feel lighter" and more ready, on a purely mental level!
Anyone else with WI rituals?
