Day 5 went well. Nothing out of the ordinary. I ate all the tomatoes and only 1/4 lb of ground beef. I drank a ton of water. I felt full after eating the beef at lunch time, that all I ate in the afternoon and evening was tomatoes with basil and balsamic.. I had the fresh organic heirloom tomatoes from Farm Fresh To You and they were absolutely divine…. I don’t know if I can eat another tomato that doesn’t come from garden.
So after the beef and tomatoes day, I’ve lost 7 oz, for a total loss of 3.1 pounds. I’ve officially lost my Atlanta weight.

However, I had hoped to lose a bit more with this diet, I was looking to lose a total of 6 pounds – the 3 pounds I gained while working in Atlanta AND the 3 pounds that have crept on during the year.. that would put me down to 120 – the weight I rang in the New Year at. Ideally I’d love to be at 110.. which I would consider my ideal weight given my height and bone structure. Maybe that will be my 2012 New Years Resolution…
I think the secret is eating healthy AND working out. The days I had “strenuous” workouts are the days that I lost the most weight. I love to run and I love the classes at the gym… so I will continue to eat healthy and focus on working out. What I do not plan on doing is giving up my social life for a diet any longer. I’m going to stick to the ‘lots of fruits and veggies no carb diet’, but not waste away my weekend by avoiding activities with friends so that I don’t drink.
