The last time I wrote a blog, I had rapidly gained weight after a fun weekend. The weight did not come off as fast as I put it on, it took almost two weeks come off. I was pretty upset with myself and I doubled my exercise for the past 2 weeks.
I am now 10.8 lbs from my first goal, (Thats a total of 42.6 lbs for those keeping track). I am feeling pretty good about my progress, but I am really starting to realize that my first goal will not be enough to make me look thin. I know that I have said that I’ll re-evaluate my progress when I reach my first goal, but I can’t imagine that another 10lbs will make me feel ‘done.’ To be honest I feel that I have been this weight before, and I felt fat then.
I feel like my progress is fragile. Last week I gained 4 pounds on veggie days, I didn’t really cheat either. I may have had a little bacon bits, cheese and salad dressing but 4 lbs over 2 days seems extreme. Next time I do veggies days, I’ll have to be more strict. Anyway the point of this was to say that I see potential for a quick rebound when I go off the diet. I feel that the weight that I reach will be gone unless I give up starches for the rest of my life.
I will probably continue my diet for after I reach 53.4lbs but I need to figure out how much more. I hope that I can reach that goal in the next 3-4 weeks. I also just realized that I will be dieting on my summers family vacation. This will be an adventure. Let me know if you’d like me to post ‘diet-friendly restaurant meals’.
