Today was a good day. I didn't have time to post yesterday, the day as a whole just got away from me. However, I did find a pretty new pillow for my living room and some matching twin bedding to redo my girls room. I'll have to post all of that over at my other blog, so CHECK IT!
But, back to updating my weight loss. About 3 pounds in the last two days.
Yesterday was a loss as was today, and I can't remember what the difference between the two days was, so this post will have to be a combined post and were all good with that, right?
Starting Weight: 206.5
Today's Weight: 182.6
Total Loss: 23.9 Pounds. I'm getting a little tired of ending in all these .9's. It's like a tease for the next number. C'mon!
So needless to day, I'm very happy with my near 24 pound loss. I'm feeling really really good about that. I think I'm going to keep doing the drops all weekend, stop them on Monday and start the 1500 calorie maintenance phase on Wednesday. It would be nice to get on the other side of 25 pounds so that I end closer to 30 instead of 20 pounds lost.
This has been a really crazy journey. I'm completely nervous about transitioning into the maintenance phase. Can I stabilize this new weight, or will it just be all over the place. While VLCD has been hard, it's also been easy to follow. It's very specific and clear. That can feel boring some days, but it's really important to learning about yourself and your body. I can tell that my taste buds have changed. They are more sensitive to natural sweetness for example. Even my Tom's toothpaste tastes sweet now. I can also feel the fat that is in something, literally coating my tongue. Weird!
I think I need to just keep my head wrapped around the fact that things don't stop now. It's the most important part of this journey coming up! I HAVE to stabilize this new weight!!!!!!!
The challenge continues.
