P3 Day 1

Well I made it and I couldn’t be happier.  I’m looking forward to raisin cinnamon ezekiel french toast for breakfast this morning and am a little sad that I’m not even hungry yet.  I’ll definitely wait to eat until I’m hungry because I don’t want to start any bad habits by eating when I don’t need to.  Yesterday was such a busy day.  I ran some errands with Chloe and Aujane and had a Starbucks again.  I should have waited until today to have it, but because I was a little over 2 lbs under my LDW, I didn’t care if I gained a bit or stalled from having the extra milk in my cafe latte.  We came home and Ben (my boss’ husband and our landlord) came over and hung out for about an hour, and then he left and texted us and asked if we wanted to bring all the kids over to his house to go swimming (they have a pool in their back yard) so we went and did that for an hour or so.  Then we came home, got changed, and drove to Brighton to visit my sister and brother in law and their four kids at Aaron’s parents house since they were leaving this morning.  I was a bit nervous because I always feel like Sara and Jon don’t like me for some reason.  It turned out to be an awesome evening with no tension and we had a ton of fun playing games together as a family.  I’m so glad that I married into the Campbell family.  I didn’t have a close family at all so it’s kind of a different experience for me.  My sister and I didn’t really become close until she moved here last year and I am still so thankful that that whole situation played out like it did, because it’s nice to have a sister to call just to talk to now. 

We ended up eating at 6:30 and we had hamburgers and chips and beans and veggies with ranch dip.  Because I was only 1.5 hours away from my 48th hour off my last dose of drops, I decided to eat a hamburger and veggies/ranch.  I used two pieces of low-carb bread as a hamburger bun and after I ate it I was full for the rest of the night.  REALLY full.  I was so scared to get on the scale this morning and really regretted it, but I got on the scale and had lost another .8 lbs.  I’m a little confused because I was SO FULL.  Regardless, it worked out alright and I just had my first cup of coffee in a while (I quit drinking it in the mornings because I thought I’d throw up if I had to have one more cup with a measly T of fat free milk and some stevia in it…YUCK) with some sugar-free creamer and it was heaven.  I’m about to get up and make some of that chocolate in a minute after I find wherever it was that Erica posted her recipe.  I’m excited to be here in p3 now but will be a bit bummed to not be losing weight for awhile. 

I just wanted to tell Erica again how grateful I am for all her support.  She lets me call and whine to her when I can hear a chicken sandwich from McDonalds just calling my name.  She has answered every one of my questions and been such an amazing encouragement and support during phase 2.  Erica, I truly appreciate how you’ve helped me.  This diet is HARD but so worth it and I probably wouldn’t have stuck with it had I not known that I had you “here” with me every step of the way.

    I’ll be only doing it for 2 weeks because my husband’s birthday is on the 18th, and I will be re-loading on the 17th and 18th. Then I’ll do another 3 week round, do the six weeks of maintenance, and try to hold my weight steady through the holidays. After the new year, I’ll do another round to finish off (if I need to).

    Awww you’re so very welcome! You’ve been an inspiration to me to keep fighting. It’s so nice to have support from people who are going through the same things. You’ve done so well, you had better be gosh darn proud of yourself! I keep bragging about you and Bre to my friends and family. =) (hugs)
