Today I lost again, but I didn't enjoy it. I weighed in this morning at 217.4. I only got about 3 hours of sleep though - and none of that continuous. I woke up about 2 with sharp pains & realized I had a bladder infection. I fought the idea until 4:30 when I caved and got out my AzoStandard to finally get 1 1/2 hours of sleep.
It was, of course, on my mind all day long. I called my Dr's office & they were VERY nice and said they'd squeeze me in at 4 if I could make it by then. I made the trip across the dam and into Pilot Point & even a little ways toward Tioga. Whew! They were true to their word! I was in at 4 and out by 4:35. Such nice nice people there at North Texas Family Medicine. They keep that up and we will change our PCP to them. (sounds like a threat!)
I also made a couple of discoveries. Today I made a change in my eating (measuring actually), and tomorrow I'll make another one.
food log: calories:
chicken (75g) 124
chicken (75g) 124
melba toast (2 pcs) 39
melba snacks 36
total for day: 434
Hard to believe one change (75g of chicken instead of 100g - we were supposed to be measuring it RAW and not COOKED, so we were overeating!) makes that much difference & I'm still not hungry! Dr asked how I was feeling - and I feel good, normal, and really do not have cravings for anything so far. Of course, we've only been on the HCG for 8 days & on the VLCD for 6, but I feel like I'm doing okay. You have to understand, for the last two years, I haven't been able to "stick" to a diet/eating change for more than 2 days - and even then, I usually had a glass of wine (& counted the calories/points for it). I figure I'll drop some weight just by not drinking any alcohol for this 6 weeks. But, 1 week down - 5 to go! I think I can do it; I can barely stand waiting to see my results. I'm hoping for good ones.
