It was Day 1 of my 5 Day Pouch Test. I was crabby and hungry. I ate a LOT of sugar free pudding and cream of chicken soup. I had 2 protein shakes. I think I definitely got my protein quota in for the day. I drank Fuze’s.. not exactly the water that’s called for. I did drink a couple bottles of that too. Fuze is low carb tho.
But I think I’m having carb withdrawals. My head hurts, I’m dizzy. My stomach is seriously upset… I guess part of that is cleansing my system.
And I must confess I faltered briefly.. there are some wheat thin crackers in my cabinet.. the baked flavored kind and they are really good and about 4 in the afternoon when I felt like I was going to pull my hair out I had a few. Just a few.
But I did NOT eat late last night. I really think it’s the eating late that’s been my problem. But there was a time when I could eat a bagel with cream cheese before bed and still stay between 140 and 145. I miss those days.
This morning my not digital scale looked like it said 154. Hard to tell for sure. We’ll see what happens tomorrow.
Today, more SF pudding and jello, more broth and cream soups. And I really really need to get out and exercise. But right now, as I finish my first protein shake…. Dangit I”M HUNGRY. But I can do this. I’ve come too far to let this slip away from me now. I WILL NOT REGAIN MY WEIGHT. And I will lose the 10 pounds (well 9 now) that have come back.
I can do this. I will do this.
