I awoke with a start this morning, writhing in agony over my angry stomach. It cried, "Why would you stuff me to maximum capacity and then go to sleep?" I was feeling downright sick this morning, probably due to the fact that I ate almost 40 grams of fat and a bit under 700 calories immediately before bed last night! I deprived myself of fat inadvertantly yesterday, which led to me feeling deprived. I describe it as, "I feel like eating!" Not hungry exactly but something is off. After a few hours of discomfort, I am now feeling great!
Why? Well, I just faced the dreaded The verdict: since my weigh-in yesterday, I am down 1.5 lb.
How can that be?! Well, I have been working out consistently and I know I drank plently of water yesterday, so it isn't likely to be water weight (I hope). I am keeping my fingers crossed that I won't be up 2 lb. tomorrow. I know, I know, water weight and what not. I still like seeing the number go DOWN.
I am excited to announce my weight today: 130.5 lb. I am down 3.5 lb. after my first week! I hope I can maintain this loss and continue my progress. I really need to cut down on the calories I am munching down at night; I have only stayed in my calorie range 2 of the 7 days. I only went over ridiculous one day (over 3.700- dang Mickey D's) which is completely horrible and I gained 1.5 lb. from, and the rest were not quite as bad (2,223 was the highest, the others range from 16-1900). The highlight is I still lost 3.5 lb. and [I have exercised every day].
Yay, me! I hope everyone's September has started off well!
