Good morning. Today is day 4 of the cabbage soup diet. I'm excited about getting to eat bananas and having a little milk.
I weighed in this morning. Yesterday I felt like I hadn't lost anything so I was curious to weigh in today. Like I suspected I was 188. Still down from where I started and I'm perfectly ok with that.
I think the reason why I'm not losing that "10 pounds" drastic weight is because I was already on a low calorie diet (not as low as this week but low none the less) so my body is use to this. I drink a lot of water anyway so maybe I don't have much more water weight to lose. Who knows. I really don't care how much I go down. I'd actually rather it be low because maybe that means I will be able to keep whatever I do lose on this diet off.
I was looking online for people talking about day 4 last night and found a recipe (not really a recipe, just a way to cook bananas). Basically you spray a little cooking spray on some foil and bake a sliced up banana in the oven for a while and then enjoy. I think I may try that for a little snack.
Today is July 4th. Happy 4th everyone. I don't think we are doing much this year. I think we'll go get some fireworks and set them off for the kids to enjoy. I HATE FIREWORKS! They scare the CRAP out of me. I don't mind seeing them from a distance. I do like the crackly ones though but I will never light one off. I don't even like sparklers. I run away from them.
Anyway, congrats to me for completing 2 months! I started this journey May 4th. I have come a long way and have a long way to go. I'm proud of myself for going this long. I can't remember the last time I went on a "diet" and went this long. I usually start and then forget that I'm on the diet and then give up. Or I don't see much results so I give up. NOT THIS TIME! This time I am here for good. Changing my lifestyle, changing my body, changing my self esteem. I'm proud to say that I've lost a good 15+ pounds in this past 2 months. It feels great to know that is 15 less pounds I am carrying around with me. No I may not be down a dress size yet but it is baggier and I'm feeling better about the way I look. :)
Anyway, I'm off to eat a banana and have a glass of milk for breakfast (doesn't that sound yummy?). :)
More to come...
NIGHT TIME UPDATE:
This day went ok. It was rather boring. For breakfast- banana and milk. Snack- 2 bananas baked in the oven (YUM!). Lunch- Cabbage soup. Dinner- 2 bananas, cabbage soup and milk. That was it for the day. So 5 bananas total! WOW that's a lot of bananas.
I cooked dinner for the family tonight- shake and bake chicken, baked potato, and broccoli. I didn't eat one bite (did lick my fingers after cutting up my child's chicken). :)
I went shopping for my steaks for tomorrow. Looking forward to that. I'll have a steak for lunch and a steak for dinner along with tomatoes throughout the day and a TON of water. Oh and probably one bowl of soup.
I went pee-pee a lot today so I'm guessing I've lost a little more water weight. We shall see in the morning if I'm back down.
This was a long post so I won't put much more to read out here for the day. :)
Happy 4th of July to everyone. I'm off to bed (or at least try to with all the booming going on outside).
