But here's the thing. I have zero inclination to poke myself today anyway.
My DH is probably sick of hearing me debate myself out loud. I let my thoughts spill out once a day here. I do it all freakin' day in real life.
My reasoning from yesterday is solid. I could poke myself and use up the vial and just eat more if it's not working and I'm hungry. The thing is I'm not hungry. Sigh. I just don't want to poke myself again. I made it almost to the end of the month. If I were seeing great strides, I'd keep going. But I got the minimum I wanted from it. I'll continue to lose a little over the next day or two, and then likely if I keep my calorie count low (like under 1,000) but allow myself some variety, I'll keep losing at a lb. per week or so. And keeping the calories low once fat is in my diet again shouldn't be hard, since it keeps you feeling satiated.
So, now is the time to play stabilization and life changes that will keep this weight off and continue the progress.
I'll add one food at a time and see how each goes.
The first thing I will do is make hard boiled eggs. I want them in my first non-protocol salad, and I want herbed eggs (like deviled eggs with herbs). Thus, I'll be adding mayo. I'm holding off on the cheese, which is how I like my omelets, so no omelets right away probably . Well, I'm minimizing cheese. I'll have some in my blue cheese dressing, but we are talking small amounts, and I'll crumble it myself because the kind that is already crumbled has starch in it. Although I love cottage cheese and hard cheese, I'll wait on that a bit.
I'll have cream in my coffee. Yes, real, whole cream.
I'll expand my vegetable repertoire. I'll stick with the fruits I have been eating for now.
I'll start figuring out how many miles I'll need to walk each day, how I'm going to fit that in, and decide what other activities I can add. I already know I want yoga back in there, and DH has already informed me that we are riding some distance bike this summer. I also think I'd like a bit more strength training because I want to try a rock climbing wall, and maybe by September, a real rock climbing experience.
I likely will have a glass of wine Friday night.
I'll track every single calorie and movement on my tablet and/or phone.
I'll add some lotions and potions back to my skin! Good golly it's been dry!
For now, I'm off to work. But I have a plan, and this time I'm sticki
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.
