As of this morning, I have lost 10.2 lbs!
This week of the Cruise Phase has been most difficult. I have sincerely wanted to quit this diet, mostly because I miss cooking beautiful, varied meals for my husband and myself. I like to experiment when I cook, and lean proteins and veggies do not lend to this very well.
I also feel like my social life has suffered from this diet. I turn down going to coffee shops or Chinese food restaurants with friends solely because I still crave carbs and greasy food.
It’s been very difficult, but I’m still going strong. Losing 10 lbs in just under 3 weeks has really helped motivate me to stay on the diet.
Numbers for this week:
10.2 - Number of pounds lost so far
154.8 - My weight as of this morning
29.8 - Pounds left til the Magic Number
1,000,000,000 - Times I have wanted a big, fat bowl of pasta since starting this diet
1,000,000,000 - Times I have resisted that big, fat bowl of pasta.
