"You Are Now Entering the 170s!"

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Wow, there were times when I never thought I'd get here, and I probably wouldn't have without this protocol I've been on! I feel great, I'm looking better, but I'm a little surprised that according to the bio-impedence analysis I haven't lost as much fat this time. I think the results might somehow be skewed by the fact that the last one I had done was right after traveling over Christmas, when I was pretty bloated. Would have thought that would have the opposite effect, though.

When I told the doc how hungry I'd been (and I'm not really supposed to be hungry), he suggested I discontinue some of the things I've been relying on that have sweeteners since they might be setting me up for cravings. So I did that and things seem better so far. It does mean life will be a little less sweet and a little more boring for the next two weeks, when I go into the comparatively much more liberal low-carb phase. I can exist quite well on low carb, so I'm really looking forward to it--and FAT!!

I'm down 16 pounds this round, if you don't count the 4 I put on while loading, which was actually a good thing. Can't wait to fit even better into that nice red dress I just bought. Got wise and got one with long sleeves this time. Need to really start working on these arms!

Got to see my trivia team in the first-place slot since the scores from Tuesday were posted. Still waiting on our highest core ever from Saturday to be entered. I hate it when we have a sub and he doesn't get the scores in in a timely manner!

    Congratulations! I'm having issues with sweeteners as well. I just need them in coffee, tea, etc. I'm going to cut back little by little so I don't shock myself, haha. Keep up the fabulous work!

    You are doing amazing! 16 pounds this time is fantastic. This really works for you. I really admire your commitment to it.

    So cool about the trivia. I remember when we were hoping someday that your team would be number one and now it is the team to beat most of the time!!
