I made it thru Day 4. It was pretty easy. I love bananas. I made myself 2 banana shakes, each of them had 2 bananas mixed with ice and soy milk (vs. regular milk). Super yummy. You are supposed to eat 8 bananas, but I didn’t need anymore than the 4 I ate.
I had a banana shake in the morning, a banana shake in the early afternoon, and a bowl of the soup for dinner. I drank a lot of water today … I marked 9 glasses officially, but I know it was way more than that. It was a warm day today and I did a bunch of stuff around the house… I was just thirsty and I love water.
But get this, I GAINED weight! Yes, only an ounce, but seriously?!?!? I have no idea why, I felt good, didn’t feel hungry, stayed on target/plan.. just boggles my mind (maybe the soy milk vs. regular milk? not eating all 8 bananas?, the alcohol from the day before?). I keep thinking to myself, why am I doing this? I’m doing this to lose weight, not gain weight.. surely something is up. I eat pretty healthy as it is, and cutting out carbs hasn’t been that big of a deal.. but cutting back on alcohol, and thus my social life, is a BIG DEAL. So I’m now tinkering with the idea of giving up.. Below are the stats:
|Day||Date||Day||Morn Weight (lbs)||Daily Loss/ Gain||Total Loss||# glasses of Water|
The only craving I had was for fruits, and specifically the organic grapes I have sitting in my fridge. It was hard to not grab a handful every time I opened the fridge. I’m looking forward to eating some meat on Day 5… I have dreams of a hamburger.. I might make some ground beef and season with taco seasoning, mix it with lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, onions, a bit of cheese.. yum!
What I miss the most is not sweets (I don’t really have a sweet tooth), but tortilla chips and beans. I eat mexican food all the time – I love it, the chips, the beans, salsa, cheese, etc.. it’s a staple in my life, along with soft toilet paper. 😉
Wish me luck on Day 5… if I don’t lose weight, I’m NOT going to stick with the plan…
