It's Monday morning, day 1 of our 14 day liquid protein diet. I've just had breakfast: 1/2 cup of Cream of Wheat with some sugar free maple syrup, a cup of sliced fresh strawberries, black coffee and Diet Rite tangerine. swan has prepared mid morning snack, lunch and an afternoon snack for me to take with me to work. I feel a little hungry but I think it is more about my psyching myself up about not being able to have more if I choose to, than real hunger.
I awakened to find I had gained two more pounds, so my true baseline weight is 301 not the 299 we posted yesterday with the pics of t and me. Even my blood sugar was higher than it has been for several weeks at 124. I guess all those brownies and chocolate ice cream last night, while sugar free and low fat, were not calorie and carb free:)
Well this begins the next phase as we ratchet up this adventure. I'm not freaked out but I can tell I feel stressed. I am sure this is just the beginning of a number of ensuing dramatic changes.
I guess you cannot change without change:)
All the best everyone and thank you to my swan and my t for your love and support. I could not do this without you two being by my side. It is our love that makes all this possible and necessary.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined.
