Good morning. Today is day 2 of the cabbage soup diet. I woke up wide awake this morning. I wasn't starving but am starting to get a bit hungry.
I weighed myself this morning and what was the results from yesterday's fruit and soup day?
Beginning diet weight: 189.0
After day 1: 186.5
Pounds lost: 2.5
Total weight loss to date: 17.5
WOW! I wasn't expecting that! I'm sure all of that weight was from water because I peed A LOT yesterday. AMAZING though still.
I'm off to drink some tomato juice, eat some carrots and broccoli.
I'll update throughout the day today if I can.
NAP TIME UPDATE:
I have found a cure to the bland soup! I had some fresh basil (you can get it in a tube at walmart, it's GREAT) and put some in my soup, heated it up, and YUM! It was actually really good. I had a bowl for breakfast (yeah that was weird eating soup for breakfast) and it hit the spot.
For lunch I had another bowl with more basil and ate some fresh broccoli and carrots. I made a little vinaigrette with lemon, basil, spicy mustard, garlic, olive oil, and vinegar. That was good to dip my veggies in. I think I'll have a little stir fry later with mixed veggies and the lemon basil sauce I made.
So overall, this day is going well. I haven't been going to the bathroom like I did yesterday and I think that is because I haven't been eating fruit.
Looking forward to my next bowl of soup actually.
More to come...
NIGHT TIME UPDATE:
I'm going to go ahead and update for the night because it's 8pm. I have my potato in the oven (should have done that a while ago but I was out shopping with my little girl). I ate another bowl of soup for dinner and this time I put fresh ginger and a little teriaki sauce in it and it was pretty darn good too. I think the key is flavoring each bowl to make it "new" each time. :)
I haven't pooped today (sorry once again TMI) but I am sure all the pooing I did yesterday cleaned me out completely. :) I think once I add fruit back in tomorrow, I'll have progress again in that area.
I weighed myself a few minutes ago and it was 186.5, same as what I was when I got up (and I did have clothes on).
I feel like I haven't been drinking as much as I should today so I'm going to force a few glasses of water down before I go to bed (and I'm sure I'll have to get up a few times during the night).
I have really enjoyed this day. I think I really like veggies. I have been craving some meat though. I got my little girl Chick Fil a on the way home and really wanted to take a bite of her chicken but I resisted. I mean, this diet is only for a week anyway.
Speaking of which. Depending on how the rest of the week goes, I may do this again later in the month. They say to go a couple of weeks off and then you can do it again.
I think that's all I have for day 2.
Tomorrow is day 3- fruits and veggies and soup. :) Wonder how I can flavor my soup tomorrow?
OH YAY! My potato is ready! YUM YUM!
