May 11

Well it's been a week since my first post.  As you will remember I was a little emotionally down because I had actually managed to gain 1 pound on the diet instead of losing.  The first thing that went through my mind was basically, "Oh forget it, I did all that this week and didn't lose anything, I should eat what I want and look for another diet".  But then I started my blog, got past the worst of the depression and decided to buckle down and see what happens giving it another week.  I really wanted to drop into the 180's.  Wednesdays are my weigh in day and although I'm tempted, I don't get on the scale any other time except Wednesday mornings as soon as I get up.   I got on this morning and the scale actually, really, stopped at 185lbs!  That was down six pounds from last week!  I think somehow this six pound loss is an accumulated loss of two weeks and my scale was flaky last week, but it doesn't matter.  The main thing is that because I stuck with the plan instead of giving in to my bit of depression it worked out.  I started the past week by again writing down everything I was eating, but to be honest I didn't do anything too different.  Although I had been keeping my carbs at below 120 for the day, I might have been eating more than 40 at a meal, which you shouldn't do.  I've tried to find lower carb, higher fiber breads to make my little pizzas and sandwiches for lunch.  Plus I used more pure stevia powder in my drinks instead of Truvia because then there was no additional carbs for my drinks.  I discovered that some heavy creams have 1 carb in them and some brands (Shenandoah) have none, so I will only by that brand now.  Slim Jims and plain rye crispbeads are my new go to snack if I'm hungry between meals.  This week I didn't let myself get too hungry and if I did I tried to make a decaff coffee in the middle of the day or a cup of tea with cream.  I hope I can do well again next week!

  1. Keep up the good habits! I am amazed at the amount of food I can eat if I just pay attention. It is the easiest thing I have ever done.
