At the group meeting and weekly weightloss check up. I only lost .8 lbs this week, and it sucks. I wish I lost more. I need to work on staying motivated and positive because it will help me succeed. I’m hoping next week the results turn out better.
It is so important when you’re trying to lose weight to drink enough water. Drinking enough water helps with flushing out the bad things in your body, and also keeps your hunger Down as well. I learned that when your stomach is growling & you might think you’re hungry, it might just mean that your body is telling you that you need more water in your system. I drink about 64oz of water daily. Sometimes it can be hard, but to make it easier I sometimes put crystal light into my water so it has a bit if flavor.
Workkkk til 1✌️
Day 21: feeling good, went to work for 5am, drank my first shake at 4:30 am, drank cups of water I between, and went on break around 9:30 and drank my second shake. Got out of work around 1, and went home to relax, because I had my weightloss group today. I went to the group meeting at 5:00pm. They checked my weight, and I lost 3.5 lbs this week!! I was so happy to find out that news. Since I started this program I’ve lose 9.2 lbs. In the group meeting we talked about triggers, and what triggers you to eat, and make the wrong eating choices. Also about emotional eating, what triggers it, and how to cope with situations where that would apply. Overall it was a good group session. I went home and had ahi tuna, broccoli, asparagus, and artichoke hearts for dinner, all portioned out, of course. Also I drank two 8oz cups of water with my meal. For dessert I had two clementines for my daily fruit of the day. Overall, it’s been a good day.
Keeping up the positive vibes, & staying strong and motivated.
Every day in have one piece of fruit, or a cup of mixed berries. Always for desert, even though it’s not a piece of chocolate cake, or a cookie, it still gives me the satisfaction of a unhealthy treat.
Day 18, yesterday’s blog
Day 18: today is summer jam day!!! So excited for this concert. Today was however not the greatest optifast day for me. First, I woke up late and forgot to drink a shake, I made salmon, with veggies and a mango salsa. I ate the salmon and the mango salsa. I didn’t really eat any of the veggies because I felt full and wasn’t hungry at all. So I put them in fridge. Then I went back to Dennis apartment and made myself a shake before we left.
After drinking shake I felt fine no problems at all, didn’t drink really a lot of water today. ( I need to work on drinking enough before it becomes a problem). Then we got to concert, everything was good until I started craving a beer, I knew it wasn’t a good option for me at all, I couldn’t resist. I am now twenty one and I really wanted a ice cold beer. Dennis tried talking me out of it and I also tried myself, but it didn’t work… I drank one beer. I think the whole atmosphere and the concert dragged me into making that choice. I do regret it of course but there is nothing I can do to take if back all I have to do is look past it, and move froward. Staying positive, & working on not letting the atmosphere and the vibe turn me the wrong way in terms on my weightloss goal. But on a positive note, I know now what can mess with my mind mentally to make the wrong choices. & I also figured a way how to change for the future. Anyways, the concert started at 4, and ended at 11. I didn’t eat anything during the whole show because all the food they were serving was fries, hot dogs, pretzels, mozzarella sticks, which obviously I can’t have. I wasn’t hungry during the whole show, but when we were leaving to go home that is when my hunger hit hard.
My stomach was growling, I knew I ended to eat something or drink a shake or something. But I felt like I needed more then just a shake. It was 11 at night and basically nothing was open besides Wendy’s. Obviously Wendy’s wasn’t a good choice for me either, but there was nothing else for me to eat. During the whole car ride back home I was feeling upset with myself, questioning should I do it, or no. Just feelings of regret filling my mind, mixed emotions, till I just say whatever it’s one day I’m getting Wendy’s. I know one day is a big deal, but my mindset was just thinking about food and eating so I would stop feeling hungry. Once we got to Wendy’s, I ordered a chicken Caesar salad, which I didn’t even eat half of it. Also I didn’t eat croutons. So I figured since I wasn’t able to eat my vegetables earlier why no get a salad and get the vegetables in now. Then I went to sleep since I was exhausted.
I learned now my body doesn’t eat as much as it used to and I get full a lot quicker.
