Well, last night marked 14 days on a liquid diet. I can hardly believe it!
I am feeling great! I have not had a headache or migraine since I started the program. Not one! I am thinking all the crap in what I was eating was impacting my ability to cope. I am full of energy and working out every day - yep, every day! I cannot believe how easy the shakes fit into my lifestyle and how easy it is to follow - I am not hungry at all!
I did a lot of cooking this week (for my family, and I made gift-dinners for two dear friends) and I have learned so much about my old BAD habits. I use to taste, nibble and taste again. No more. I have always enjoyed cooking, but now, I absolutely LOVE it. Can you believe that someone who is not allowed real food would write something like that?!?!?! I am trying new, healthier recipes for the family and I am creating the meal...and then seeing others enjoy it!
I never realized how much I ate BEFORE eating.
Last night our meeting focused on nutrient. We learned all about fats, carbs, starches and sugars and how much our body needs. It was fairly basic - though it helped me to continue to come to terms with the fact that portion control will always be an issue for me - and something I will have to monitor and watch - always.
OK. Just to recap - I started the program on September 5 and have been on a liquid only diet for 14 days - and to date, I have lost 16.5 pounds!!!!!! Ya for me!!!! I am so happy...and motivated and optimistic that this extreme program will work for me.
Only 10 more weeks on the shake product!!! Only 12 weeks till Christmas!!!!! Only 53.5 pounds left to go!!!! (then the real work starts!
Well - I am off to go do my Turbo Jam video...it rocks!!!
