We've Begun

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.

I love You, Sir. I love our T. We will all come through this together, and be well and healthy and happy. I know these are huge changes, and change is scary, but we've surmounted other challenges, and we'll conquer this one as well...

I hope this first day is not too difficult for either of You. I'll be thinking of you as we go along through the hours, and I can't wait until we are together again at the end of the work day.

I love You.
Yours always and all ways.

Hi folks, when my Dad had this done years ago he was told to not look at numbers too closely as they were going to change often and that they really didn't count until at least one year after the body had found its own level of weight. Now as for the sugar level Dad wasn't a diabetic so those might count though.

As for hunger, well this is going to happen to as your body is still looking for food to fill the same size stomach it was use to.

I know this is easy to say but trust me everything in time will fall into place.

Sir,
