Heading into Week 2

Last night at Lake Monger

It’s now been eleven days and I’m still going strong.  I must admit that over the weekend I really, really wanted to feel full (by stuffing myself with food), but with the success of Thursday’s weight-in, I didn’t want to spoil it.

Oh, did I forget to tell you?  FOUR POINT SEVEN KILOS (10.3 lbs).

Yes you heard it straight.  I was convinced that I had lost about 3kgs.  Mr Man thought that it was 5kgs.  I am ecstatic at what I’ve achieved in the first week.

Dr Rensburg really didn’t want to tell me how much I had lost.  Now I really get why.  All I can think about at the moment is how much I can lose this week.  He warns us against this time and time again.

I just have to keep my eye on the prize and push through.  Push through wanting:

  • A glass of wine (or two) in the evening with Mr Man
  • A big cooked breakfast on a Saturday morning
  • More than 95grams of vegetables or salad at any one time
  • A martini (or two)
  • My favorite pasta salad
  • A baked potato (with cheese)
  • Being able to go out with friends and not feel like the ‘downer’
  • Cheese, cheese and more cheese
  • Toast with butter and Vegemite
  • A sausage roll
  • Onion (I would love to be able to cook with it to spice up my food)

It’s worth it though.  Being able to fit into clothes that have been hanging in my closet for the last five years will reward all of this suffering effort.  I cannot wait.

Anyways, back to yesterday.  I was SO hungry.  I just wanted to feel satiated.  I wanted to feel not hungry.  At lunch I ate nearly 250grams of cabbage, not the 95 grams as I should have.  Boy did I feel guilty.  I know it’s ridiculous to think that  a mere 20 calories of food has had me fall off the wagon, but I am an all or nothing gal.

Rather than sit there and sulk about being bad, I got my ass out of the house and off to Lake Monger for a 3.5km walk.  It was such a beautiful evening.  There were so many people out and about walking their dogs, running, having picnics and watching the ducklings play in the water.

Now I am back on track and heading into another week of the program.
