Did you start to lose weight after that first week?? I'm only on day 5, but I "feel" heavier. I can't say if I am because I put my scale away (per advice of others), but I can tell you my clothes aren't looser or anything like that. They might even feel tighter. Either way, I feel huge...like i'm sitting with a budda-belly.
I'm 5'-6" and 160---my goal weight is 140...but my bigger goal is to "look better naked" as so many others have said. If the number on the scale is higher than that, but I look/feel good, then i'm cool with that.
It's very hard to listen to advice of "eat, eat, eat" when you feel like this. I don't feel as tired today, so that's good. I never really got the carb-flu type symptoms. I didn't feel as famished yesterday like I could run out an attack/eat a cow...so that's good. I just feel fat. Jabba the hutt Which unfortunately makes you second guess yourself or wonder if you messed up.
Yesterday's menu in order: (not lactose intolerant btw)
smoothie: spinach, 1/2 banana, 2 tablespoon of almond butter, unsweet almond milk, scopp of greek yogurt, and a few stawberries
big ass salad with peppers, 3 chicken tenderloins grilled, a spinkle of feta, almond slivers, evoo-balsamic
ground beef burger (like 1/2 pound), asparagus, onion rings from 1/2 an onion (which are only rings that I broil so they're crunchy) and a little paleo mayo seasoned that i got from a recipe
a few pieces of celery with almond butter
