Good News / Bad News

Well, which do you want first? ;-)

Considering it's not really good or bad news for YOU, you probably don't really care, huh? Ok, I'll get on with it then!

The good news is actually two-fold.
  1. When I weighed in last Friday for my 3rd week official total, I was down a total of 12 lbs. Yay!
  2. When I weighed in this Monday, I was already down 3.5 more lbs since Friday, for a total of 15.5 lbs!! O_O!!
Ok, so that's a direct lead-in to the bad news (which is also two-fold), with the first part being that I spent the weekend with a stomach bug, and it's WHY I lost all that weight. Ick. 

I don't expect that weight loss to stick, as I'm certain that once I'm fully re-hydrated it will go back up. However, this morning when I got on the scale (after managing to eat almost all of my required food for the day and getting in all 80 oz of water yesterday) I was down another whole pound from yesterday morning. I didn't expect that; I really thought I would be back up. So I guess we'll see just how much comes back by the end of the week.

The second part of the bad news is that I would just kill for a pizza right now. I am still so weak, trying to get my strength back and eating light just isn't cutting it!! I cannot shake being hungry and I want so much to eat something filling, warm and comforting.

I brought a salad for lunch today and knew this would be an obstacle, so I tried to make it as appetizing as possible, using one of my fruits for the day by putting raspberries on it and bringing raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Not helping!! I am forcing it down with my Diet Sunkist. :-(

If I were further along in the diet (like, say, 3 months or more), I would so just eat the stupid pizza. But since I'm still in the first month, I just cannot bring myself to go off plan and backslide. I want the 15 lb milestone to stick for the week!!

So, I will continue to choke down my salad for lunch, because I know I will enjoy some leftover turkey tacos (which are actually VERY VERY YUMMY!) for dinner tonight. Then I will have gotten through another day and hopefully tomorrow I will feel better, have more strength and staying on plan won't be so hard, right? ;-)

Oh my poor angie... that naughty Zach got you both sick. I am so proud of you for NOT eating the Pizza!!!! YEAH! Is there anything on your plan that is like pizza? Bread, sauce and cheese? Something??????

But I hope you are feeling better, and so far this fall has been beautiful up here. You really can't ask for a better fall so far!

Love you so much and am so proud of you!!!

If there is something on the plan like pizza, I haven't found it yet! I seriously doubt it, though, because there is no cheese!! :-(

And yes, we have had a gorgeous fall, there is no question. But I really doubt we'll be saying we had a gorgeous winter, unless we all fly south! ;-)

Love you too and thank you!!

Crissi said...

NO CHEESE!!!!! WHAT!!!!!

Oh I feel so bad that your sick and having to go thru this with the diet, but I am so very proud of you that you didn't decide to go off just for the instant of having that pizza to fill you. See your getting your mind set and I am so proud of you for that. You can do it as you can see.
love you and keep up the good work

Angie said...

Thank you!! Love you too! :-)

I have been away from my blog (and any social interaction via the computer) for a while now. I'm just now getting back into it. Thank you for your comment on my blog in Sept. I just read your most recent posts back to this one. I am VERY proud of you for not caving in and eating pizza. I too am a sucker for pizza. Any kind, I'm not too picky. It is the perfect food.
You are ROCKIN' this diet and weight loss program and I'm proud of you.
