Week 1 Day 7
I went down to Body Image this morning for my first evaluation appointment (I have to admit, I did skip breakfast that day), I met a new nice lady who weighed me in, there was a couple of seconds there where she was making sure she was reading the scale right and kept looking at my chart and then announced “Yup, 9 pounds!” From 190 to 181 in 7 days!! Everyone in the office was really proud of me and the physician said that I had an “exceptional week”
9 Pounds in a week is just unbelievable, I mean literally if someone told me they lost 9 pounds in a week I wouldn’t believe them especially as a diet veteran, I never experienced results like this. The closest thing to fast results was on the south beach diet when I lost 7 pounds in the first two weeks. I even had Mcdonald’s fries, ate at PF changs, and went to a lunch party during the week! I called my mom on the way home and told her and her response was “liar....”. I texted my two friends that I chose to tell about the diet my results and she responded back “that’s great but don’t you feel really hungry,” LOOOL, it cracked me up that she’s under the impression that I’m starving myself.
Cecille, the program founder and nutritionist reviewed my diary and suggested I make small but more healthy choices such as replacing my coffee mate (which I thought was totally healthy since it barely has cals and carbs) with soy creamer and try to eat less beef and more turkey and chicken. She also gave me a meal plan and some recipes and I decided to actually cook a real meal today. I got my ingredients from whole foods for the raviolo recipe in my little packet and I’m not kidding that was probably the best ravioli I had in my life!
At the end of today I consumed 859 calories, 43.5 g of fat, and 56.5 grams of carbs the overwhelming majority of that being from my amazing ravioli lunch!
