Here is my next installment of “Blast from the Past” or The Way We Were. OK, now that sounded so-fis-te-cated……..right?? Jeez does he ever give up? No, no he does not give up! Sorry folks it looks like I am arguing with myself and actually winning this time! Did that make sense? OK, here it goes:
Original Stardate: 7/6/2010
Today is the start of my third week of ZC WOE!!! I will start to post information on my weight, energy levels, overall health, food consumption, and any changes that I make as far as exercise or adding or eliminating certain foods. If anyone could suggest what kind of info I should keep stats on to help me narrow down what works for me would be appreciated. I had to buy a new scale recently; my old one was not reliable. It would go up and down the scale within seconds of weighing in. My best estimate is that I started out at 260 three weeks ago, so I will us that as my starting point. I will weigh myself in the morning in order to get some kind of consistency. I stopped drinking green tea in the mornings (which I was substituting for my coffee) and began to drink more H2O. I set my first goal weight of 185. It looks like I have lost about 8 pounds in two weeks. I kind of know that water weight (correct me if I’m wrong) plays a role in the beginning of carb elimination. I have to give my body time to adjust to this WOE. I also quit eating breakfast in the morning as a routine. I take extra GB (to work) and eat it when I’m hungry.
Thanks everyone for all the kind notes of encouragement.
Energy level: good
Overall Health: good
Today’s Menu: GB, Oopsie roll (2) & Water
Yes, the “Green Tea” did not last long. HA! What was I thinking? OK again with the freaking H20. The scale thing was not bad for “ME” because I don’t panic about the numbers. Because….well they are just numbers. I know this is not for the meek. So stay away from scales if they make you panic and rely more on how your clothes fit. I gave up eating breakfast because at the time I was eating just to eat. So I waited until I was hungry (good rookie points). I took extra food just in case (better rookie points). Exercise……well it really did not happen consistently as I planned and as stated before: ya really don’t need it. Observation about losing water weight at the start of (ZC)ing (bonus rookie points).
Have a Healthy Day my Family and Friends. Today is the first day for the rest of my LIFE. I am Powerful, I am Strong and I will Always Battle On!!!
