It might seem silly but I started eating on a small plate. It always seemed to me like a really stupid idea, but I can say that it does actually work. It’s easier to resist another portion of something than leave food on the plate.
I have this sense of calm on this diet. I know that when I get to my goal weight I will not suddenly go back to my old eating habits. I don’t feel like I’m just on a diet. I am changing my life FOREVER! Stage 3 of this diet already sounds like a good eating plan in general and I am sure it will get me on the right path. I’m also not freaking out about food or think about it obsessively like I used to. When I get to my goal weight, which is about 40kilos from my start weight, I will start phase 3. For about 400days. That’s over a year. And I’m not upset by it. I am HAPPY! I feel safe that someone planned it for me and guides me through the process. I know I couldn’t do it on my own plan, I tried many times and failed miserably. Even now, I eat very well and I think the next phase will be a welcomed relief, a nice and good way to eat. With a piece of bread, a fruit, with 2 fabulous meals of my choice in a week . Superb.
Sample menu from the week:
Breakfast: Oven baked chicken, pickles and eggs
Lunch: Tomato soup and chicken muffins (with curry spice)
Snack: Chicken slices
Dinner: Bran cake and mackrel with tomato sauce
I hate eating early in the morning, but when I’m going to work for many hours, I know I will be hungry and I just need to stuff my face with whatever, to avoid that . It’s better than being hungry and getting tempted by free sweets at work.
At one point I had a really busy day, so I was hoping to get some roasted chicken breast from a butchers close to my house. Of course the one day I needed it, they were out. With a bit of panic I bought a box of beef, asking for the leanest bits. The salesman offered me some gravy. I think he got the point when I looked at him all terrified. Such preposterous ideas! Gravy!
So I had some takeaway beef. It’s not as good as chicken breast, a bit dry, but it was still good to try something new.
I started planning (or dreaming of) a holiday in Sicily in September. I want a bikini body!!!! I don’t know if it will work out, but it’s good motivation
I started THINKING about working out I guess it is a step forward…
Also – in day 58 (!) I achieved the weight loss of 20 kilos!! AMAZING <3 I’m thrilled.
Sins: Chocolate mousse
Weight loss this week: 1kilo – 87.3kg YESSS!
I’m still not bored with the diet
