Hi everyone. So I've been preparing (grocery shopping, reading the book) to start SBD for a week now, and since I realized I wasn't going to have carbs for a couple of weeks, I've been eating more of them than I usually would while calorie counting. I had sushi last night, and a sandwhich with some chips yesterday for lunch. I had pasta the day before, and french onion soup with baguette the day before that. You can see I was fitting in some foods that I knew I wouldn't be eating, you know, to get it out of my system. Well, last week my weight was 181, and now it's 187. I feel like 2-3 lbs are actual lbs, but I feel like the rest is just me retaining water from eating foods that I usually wouldn't eat so much of. What do you all think?
Oh, and to any of you out there that are planning to indulge pre-SBD, let me tell you: everything in moderation! I indulged too much (obviously), and it wasn't that fantastic while I did it, and now I'm feeling bloated and uncomfortable.
Even before the diet, this needs to be a lifestyle change. Probably the most irresponsible thing I've done in a long time. Nevertheless, it's time to move forward and make the right choices. Thanks for any input, 3FC chicks!
