awe thanks guys!
Yes I am still around. I just don't have much to contribute, so I mostly just read :) But I try not to read too much, cuz everything sounds like it would be good ;)
Ok, so today is day one. So far so good, but it isnt lunch time yet haha. But... I have been up since about 5:30
Plenty of food. Too much even, but I am trying to eat it all since that was part of my downfall before, I think. I had some gain over the weekend - and I know exactly from what, so part of my initial weight loss will be from that.
I think this should be pretty easy, so I am hoping for good results :)
down 1.5lbs! Need I say more?! haha
Ok, yal you know me, of course I will say more. But not much more. Mostly that I know this is water, but it needs to go so I will take it!!
Oh, I just realized, I forgot to post after the first day! It was down .9!!
So that makes 2.4 so far this week!
down 2.6!! That makes 5lbs this week! That gets rid of my water gain over the weekend, and I am sure (hoping) most of my gain since the first of the year has been water, so I am sure it is not fat loss yet, but hey, it's all gotta go! right?!
Wow, one week? I've read back a couple of times to see which approach(es) you're taking now, but whatever it is, it's working!
I know it! It is 3 days actually. I started on Monday. So Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday on the plan, resulted in 5lbs loss at 5am on Thursday! :)
It is called the Fast Metabolism Diet (Did. I. Eat. Today) All kinds of foods, pretty much same foods as I eat now, but certain foods on certain days to accomplish certain things. So I don't feel deprived, I know it will roll back around in a few days. Like fruit. I would sure like to have an orange, but I can wait until tomorrow :) She doesnt include wheat but does other grains like steel cut oats. And quinoa, though technically a seed I guess. She also includes beans and legumes, but I had other things instead so far.
She doesnt count calories, but does count servings (ounces, cups, pieces of fruit) and the more you have to lose, the more servings you get :)
Too much food for me. I can't eat it all but trying to eat as much as I can. :cool:
5 days under my belt & 6.2lbs gone from under my belt!!!! :cool:
Oh geesh, I havent checked in for a few days. Scale still going down. .7 today, .9 yesterday, I don't remember before that off hand. :cool:
minus 1.5lbs today :cool:
This is pretty crazy!
You're having amazing results. What does a day of eating look like for you? Congrats to you. I know you must be delighted with your progress!
