I did it. I think I regret it.
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.
I struggled with my weight for over 20 years. I tried everything to lose weight. Yes, I did 'eat less, move more' repeatedly, convinced that doing the same thing over and over would someone yield different results. Desperate, having diligently done all the 'right' things and being told by several doctors that there was nothing wrong with me except that I wasn't trying hard enough, in 2009 I tried what seemed crazy: Dr. Simeons Hcg protocol. I lost 85 lb.
