So I just took a few minutes to update the About Me page of this blog because I had not done so in well over a year, and boy was it ever outdated in many respects. What was helpful for me to see right now, getting myself through this first week of being back on all meal replacements, was again seeing the extremes of the “before” and “after” photos I have on there. Now, I am not as thin as the after picture there – I took that one at the zenith of my diet, when I was down 11o pounds and weighed “only” 195 (hey that’s like a feather to me!), but even with some weight gain, I do not look even remotely like my old self, and that, seeing it, feeling it, that was good for the soul.
Yes I still need to lose weight but I am not that woman any more. Not even close.
Otherwise, not too much excitement to report because I am working like 14 hours a day right now. But I am down 5 pounds in the first 2 days and thankfully, have had a very minimal headache. In general I feel pretty darn good for day 3 actually. I usually feel pretty crappy the first 5 days, so glad to be ahead of schedule! Also helpful my family is out of town this first few days so I can completely avoid food. My husband took the kidlets to Yosemite. Thank you honey, even though you will never see this because you don’t read my blog. ;-)
I did forget how much you pee when you are doing all diet shakes plus drinking a ton of water plus losing a lot of water weight. I’m like Old Faithful only pointing downward!
That was possibly one of my infamous TMIs. :-)
Which reminds me, I have an opportunity to embarrass my family and they aren’t here to stop me!
