Haha... I just realized that my last blog title was "Day 13 of the 12 day diet". I guess I'm done! Nah.....I'm still going. I just realized though. I'm leaving for camping on day 17. That means, I'm really only doing 16 days....I guess that's ok....since I made my goal today!!!!
11 pounds gone!
I dont' think I've been at this weight at all this year. I'm really excited. Excited and scared. Scared about camping. The last thing I want to do is go camping and stay on this restrictive diet, but at the same time....I'd really hate to come back and gain back all that I've lost. I'm hoping that's NOT going to happen. Moderation I guess...no hog wild days.
So, does the diet work? Basically what I'm asking is, does this food combination promote more weight loss than a diet with different food and similar calorie counts? Normall I'd say no. If I'm eating an average of 1000 calories a day on the 17 day diet and another person ate 1000 calories of McDonalds (wouldn't get much!), I'd say we'd lose the same amount of weight. But I'm not so sure now.... I dont' know what it is. I seem to be shedding pounds much more quickly than I've ever done. Silly - but when I eat Salmon, I seem to have a better time on the scale. I'm going to come back from camping and start phase 2. This time its going to be much more tough because hubby will be home. We are SOOOO bad for each other. I can't wait for him to see me though! I hope he can see a difference. He'll be pretty amazed to hear I've lost 11 pounds! Maybe more... who knows. I'm not going to get my hopes up. If I can maintain for the next 2 days I'll still be happy as a clam. (where did that saying come from? Who decided clams are happy?)
Well, off to bed. The journey is almost done! Until tomorrow...
