I made it through the first week, but had some hiccups. On Sunday we stopped at Sonic. they are not friendly to lettuce-wrapped options; their lettuce is shredded. I grabbed a regular bacon cheeseburger and didn’t eat the bun, which was massive. but the “ocean water” turned out to be a regular soda – 180 calories or so for the size. In hindsight I’d have skipped it and asked for straight water. Later, instead of my brother in-law’s homemade pizza, we had my wife’s fathead pizza (crust made with almond meal and cream cheese, so no grains or sugar) and all told my eating was pretty good.
I weighed about 485 on Monday. I stayed home that day, not feeling well – from the sugar, perhaps? Unfortunately, the last couple of days I’ve been giving into sugar cravings after making it through most of Tuesday without a slip. Today’s been very over the top with sugar and grains (donut and bagel day, which I breezed through last week).
What I noticed yesterday: I was grazing and snacking through most of the day, so I never really hit that “coasting” feel I enjoyed much of last week. I got to work with too much food, and I just kept eating. I did also have the last of some chewing gum, which gave me a bit of a sweets craving by day’s end.
so, I need to get back into the nsng swing. The cravings are annoying.
