Phase 3 - Day 5

Saturday, April 20, 2013

OMG phase 3 is fantastic!! emoticon

Lots of good healthy fats. Yumm-o! Lots of variety from all macros for 3 days.

The plan says don't count calories, but I have been counting calories for over a year, so it is hard not to. Plus I was just curious as to how it would all play out.

She says calories dont really matter, it is the combination of foods eaten at certain times, which I am starting to see the effect. These are the same foods I use to eat, yet the scale was not budging. Now I strategically eat them for a specific benefit, and BAM! the scale is moving.

Anyways, I have had some low end calorie days - but only because I was too full to eat it all. She says you really need to eat it all, but since I am not exactly sure how much weight I should lose - all depends on where I am at once the fat is gone - so I probably should have had more on those days. It was the protein days that came in lower calorie. I know protein is more satiating for me.

So anyways, some on the low side, some on the medium side, yesterday was higher as I am sure today will be also, so over the course of the week, it all averages out.

I took measurements on day one. I havent taken those yet again.

Sleep was so-so, but that is normal for me. I am not tired when I wake up, I am usually ready to meet the day. Havent done my business yet, but wanted to weigh and eat breakfast.

Drum Roll please............. oh but remember, I didnt get to weigh yesterday...... okay so drum roll please....down 1.2! emoticon

Couldnt be happier. I know my losses this week includes some water gain. I had things over last weekend before I started the plan that I normally do not. I also tend to GAIN weight at this time of the month. So I am happy with any loss. So I am curious how the entire week will end up. I am even more curious what the coming weeks will bring, now that maybe the extra water is gone. emoticon
