Wii says I'm down .7, but I have to wonder how much more I'd be down if I didn't do it. Would it have been another 1.1? Would it have been another .2? We'll never know. What we do know is I have a mild headache, which is the reason I think it may not have been worth it. I feel a little cruddy.
But then gain, I did it wrong. If there is a wrong way to go rogue. I did not eat my grapefruit or cabbage. Instead, I did have 1 piece (2 tsp. size or so) of a piece of 'chocolate' that is made with cocoa, coconut oil and stevia and a glass of good red wine when I got home from my engagement. But the problem is that, as I suspected, I felt pretty good after one glass. It was easy to justify a second because the bottle was almost empty anyway. I did end up dumping about half of what was in my last glass down the sink, but still...indulgent. It would have been very easy to give in to a train wreak cheat had some wonderful food been in the room, too. Though I will say it was relatively painless to go to my social event and have pizza and cake in front of me. I wasn't the least bit tempted, though it felt awkward to be the only one not eating. Why is that I wonder?
This morning my fingers were swollen. My rings are tight. That made me a little apprehensive to get on the scale, but I needed to know. I was pleasantly surprised. I do wonder if tomorrow or Sunday I'll face delayed repercussions.
If the next couple of days go ok, and/or this seems to have kick started me, I would try the 'chocolate' again, but I'm not sure about the wine. In a week or two the headache that is now so present will be just a memory, so we'll see. It's all about the scale.
