Today is day 4 for me and I'm in Phase One. I know you're not supposed to weight everyday, but, I swear, those nasty little white scales just follow me around everywhere!
Each of the first 3 days I lost weight, but this morning I had gained back (1/2 lb). This in itself should be enough reason not to weigh daily (discouragement), but this is what I learned from yesterday:
I had to leave the house early so grabbed some deli turkey slices and a cheese stick to gobble down for breakfast. Went shopping all day with friends, and rather than eat something "bad", I chose not to eat at all.
After I got home, had a good SBD dinner (grilled tilapia, green bean shellouts and a tossed salad). Gained a 1/2 pound this morning.
Lesson: By not eating, I put myself into starvation mode.
From now on, I will eat something even if it's my fingernails! Seriously, I could have had many good choices if I'd only made the effort.
From now on I will eat, from now on I will eat, from now on I will eat...........
Thanks for listening to my sob story!!
