Well here I am again! Another month already passed by. Seriously how does it feel like time is on 4x fastfoward? It is just crazy to me that it’s already practically Spring time. Wasn’t it just Christmas two weeks ago?
Anyway, let’s get to the good stuff.
I finished my second month on Profile by Sanford. I was measured yesterday and am now down 31 pounds and 17.5 inches off my body. Everyone has been telling me that I look slimmer. I had someone at work say my neck looked smaller (uh, thank you?). Everyone else is noticing, but me.
I still really only see (or feel) a difference in my chest and fingers. Mainly because my marriage ring is getting looser and I have had to buy a smaller bra. Even though, my clothes are getting looser, I still don’t see a physical difference in my body. It is weird how the mind perceives things. Just today, for the first time in many years, I fit into a XL size dress with room to spare. I guess my mind is taking longer to catch up to the changes.
In other news, I experienced my first off plan day this last weekend. I don’t call it cheating because the choice is mine and it’s not like I won’t ever eat a potato or cupcake ever again. It’s about controlling your food and not letting your food control you. So anyway, for breakfast we went to a little cafe and I had a hamburger steak with cottage fries. We also went to the bakery and I ate a few bites of a pastry filled with pudding. Normally I would eat the whole thing, but that’s not who I am anymore. For dinner we went to a Vietnamese restaurant and I had pho along with a meatball roll and crab Rangoon. The food was good, but it didn’t take long for my body to react negatively. I felt so nauseous that day and into the next morning.
I prepared my mind for going through the ketoflu again. Which, may be just what I had started feeling tonight at work. I have been sick too so it’s hard to say where it is coming from.
Needless to say, I am back on plan. It feels good being confident in my food choices. It feels even better when I can see the pay off trying on smaller clothes and they fit (sometimes even more baggy than I thought they might). Overall, I am happy with my results so far and I’m going to keep on going!
