I am so happy to report that I am ANOTHER 0.6 of a pound DOWN this morning!
Yesterday I tested Chick peas to see how my body would tolerate them and although they did not cause weight gain, I did experience some gas. So I would say they are mildly reactive.
My DH is very happy at the healthy and TASTY meals he has been getting at dinner and for his lunch! I have not eaten so many veggies in a long time! I needed the proverbial Kick in the Butt to get myself inspired and interested in taking the time to cook again!
You know when you look at everything and say "I can't eat this, I can't eat that, I can't eat the next thing" and you get discouraged and think " why bother, I'll just have more coffee! "
Seriously , it happens.
What I learned on "The Plan" is that a good food for you may not be a " good food for me" and just because we have made these "Good food" and "Bad food" lists does not mean we all react the same way! I was shocked to read that MANY people have inflammatory reactions from SALMON! YEP!
I get to have coffee today!
But just one cup! Can't wait!
I know that when I get to the day when we test wheat what is going to happen, but it will be good to have it confirmed. AS Lyn-genet says, it's not about calories, it is about chemistry!
So simple and yet so elusive!
Thanks to LIS for encouraging me to try "The Plan", I am happy to have lost 3 pounds in total so far...and I am only on day 4!
The only downside is increased amount of dishes! LOL, I had to do 2 loads last night!
But it is good to be cooking again instead of just snacking here and there all the time.
AND I seem to be getting enough protein and so that is a plus!
The hardest thing to adjust to is not having tea or coffee or anything with meals! I knew that you should not drink with your meals, but didn't think it really mattered THAT MUCH!
But if I was going to do "The Plan" then I have to stick to their guidelines!
I will get used to it, I suppose! Give it time!
I wonder how you are doing on your Day 24 of your challenge?
only 5 days left!
Remember to be kind to yourself and fuel yourself right! What is right for YOU!
