I couldn't wait to get right down to the Wii and see if yesterday messed me up, and I was not surprised, but was disappointed, that it seemed to. My first weight was UP 1.1, and I told myself that because it was later in the morning, perhaps it wouldn't actually be that bad by Monday. As a slogged up the stairs, I kicked myself though, thinking it could take me all week to make up for this screw up.
The screw up was that we were having company and I really wanted to enjoy some wine. It wasn't a complete disaster a couple of weeks ago, (except for the headache) so I was hoping I could pull it off.
Last time I preemptively walked off the amount of calories I thought I might over-consume vino. This time I knew I wasn't going to be able to do that, so I tried not to consume as many calories. I had a grapefruit for breakfast, and then chicken with my supplements for lunch (as late as possible...it was like 2:30 or 3). My plan was to eat a regular protocol dinner, but dinner ended up being later, and I was hungry before everyone got here, so I had melba toast. I ended up chatting instead of preparing food, so all I ate was my piece of chicken. Later I had a glass of wine, followed by 16 oz. of water and then another glass. Thus, those two glasses of Cab were consumed between about 8 pm and midnight. I had fun. I was willing to take my knocks for it.
After the scale confirmed that I would indeed have to, I finished my morning routines while the coffee was brewing. After about 1/2 hour I just felt like I needed to check again. This time it said I was 149.7! I had dipped down below the coveted 150 mark! I went to the graph and checked yesterday's weight, which was 151.5. Which means the total I'm going to choose to go with is a release of 1.8! YES!
I hold no illusions about the fact that this variable may yet prove to be unfavorable, despite today's hurrah. It could get me tomorrow. I'll have to go back and look at what happened last time. And like last time, I don't plan to do it again, at least for a couple of weeks. It wasn't easy to pull off, but it also wasn't torture. I just wasn't that hungry for the most part. And not having much food meant there was a two glass limit because I was pretty much lit. I don't have a headache today, probably because of the water I drank between glasses, but I can still feel....the effects? I don't know how to explain it, but it's like I can feel my body clearing the alcohol out. Weird, but not hung over or anything.
So now, back to my regularly scheduled programming.
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.
