Just a day short of 3 weeks on the very low calorie diet and I’m nearly 30 pounds lost and over 5 inches off my waist. I’ve always worn my weight well. Most people would never had thought I was as heavy as I was. So the scale shows a large loss, but there are only subtle changes in my hip size, back, face and neck. My problem areas of thighs and stomach haven’t changed much.
I had another work function on Friday. We went to an Irish Pub where there was not much for me to eat, however I did order the bison burger with a side of kale. I was so full that I ended up falling asleep early that night without really having dinner.
The rate of weight loss is declining as the weeks go on. I have about 20 more days left before moving to a 1500 calorie diet. This weekend tried my dedication to this diet as I was faced with a rush of emotions, and found myself, as an emotional eater, trying to stay strong not to eat what would “make me feel better”. Unfortunately, I would say that I might have had less than I needed instead, which of course is just as bad as eating the wrong things.
When I was at my doctors last week, I was scolded for not taking a multi-vitamin, and then the doctor who did my nerve test suggested taking B6 for my nervous system. I bought both today. And in the count down to when the very low calorie diet is over, I am excited to get my workout routine into full swing since being ‘benched’ during this time.
