I usually look forward to my clinic day every week. It’s not that I wasn’t looking forward to the visit today, but I was definitely nervous. I had not necessarily been going crazy or eating bad, but I didn’t feel that I had been as diligent as I should have been, and apparently neither did my husband, lol. As I was leaving he told me “don’t be worried babe, you look great and you will do better this next week.” He really has been so supportive of me on this journey.
When I got to the clinic they were sampling the chicken noodle soup which was surprisingly yummy and had some samples of some of the bbq and sour cream cheerio shaped snacks. I am always surprised that the snacks and food that are at the clinic and allowed on the HCG diet are so yummy.
I was incredibly nervous as I stepped onto the scale and so happy to find that I had lost 2 pounds. I couldn’t believe it. My phase angle, which shows the health of my cells had gone up because my water intake was a lot better this week. Even though I could have lost more weight I was told that sometimes clients only lose 2 or 3 pounds in a week and that is OK.
I am really excited about the progress and had a great talk with the people at the clinic about the upcoming week. I am a little nervous about traveling home to Texas because it is so hard to impose on others when dieting. My family all knows about my diet and are so supportive, but it is so easy when you are with people who love you to just have a little bite of something here and there.
Anyhow…I plan to be faithful and have asked everyone in advance to not allow me to cheat.
The rest of my day is going to be prety restful. Those types of days tend to be a little hard for me diet wise…for some reason being home makes me want to snack. I made some yummy passion fruit tea and so that is my back up plan for when I am feeling munchy today.
It’s all in my head..I am not hungry, I just WANT to eat…Really got to work on turning off that message in my head.
More to come!
