There are still tax issues in the air around my house - and I want to comfort myself with food. Made my standby comfort food - plain mashed potatoes - but mixed them half and half with baked eggplant. A small concession to dieting.
I was thinking about how good a soda and ice cream from McDonald's would be on my way home. I had it all mapped out in my head which McDonald's I was going to stop at, which way to take home, etc. But when it came time to make the turn towards McDonald's, I went the other way and went straight home. Big deal for me to pass up a drive thru urge. Proud of myself!
Start (1/9/14): 276.8
The only goal I have right now is to get my ass in gear and get the scale moving the other way!
The liquid diet for just one day seems to work well. He doesn't say to make it low-calorie, but he says not to make it fatty and heavy stuff - don't just liquify meatloaf, for example! And it's just one day a week.
I just have soup and juices. A smoothie, too, if I have the time and items for making one. I think it does end up being lower calorie.
One other of his recommendations that I like: sip hot water throughout the day. In a mug, really hot water. It's a good way for me to get my water 'quota.'
Kathy Have you tried cutting out wheat for your muddled head? It seems to have helped mine. I know it reduces the ringing in my ears. I am going to try a liquid diet some day this week. I need to go grocery shopping. I also have company for part of the week so will have to work around that.
My accomplishment for today is coming in to work. Hard to do after a 4 day weekend. Now I need to do some work!
