Day 6

Today is the sixth day of our diet. So far so good! The first two days were pure torture! I thought I might beat someone up for a good piece of bread or a potato. :) After the second day it was pretty easy. I do miss things. Especially the beer. I really appreciate all the feedback from everyone. I'm not sure if this will be the right diet for me, but it's worth a shot. I really need to get the cookbook though. I'm getting a little bored with the meals. Although, after the 2 week mark we move into phase two and get to add some foods back in. That makes me happy!

The only problem is that I don't think I've lost any weight. My husband says he can tell, but I just think he's being nice. The scale actually went up a pound. We aren't totally sure that our scale works properly, and that could be the issue. If I haven't lost anything by two weeks, I'm throwing in the towel. They say you should lose 8-13 pounds by then. Humpf.

It's been 10 days since the surgery and I feel pretty good. Mostly back to normal. We go back to the RE today to find out the next step. Keep your fingers crossed that we get to cycle again!


  1. I hope you have a good consult with the RE.

    Whoa...8 pounds in two weeks! That seems like an awful lot. How do you feel? Has the diet made you feel good, once the potato lust faded? :)

  2. That sounds tough. I have never been able to do any diets, so I admire your will power.

    Hey I was in Oly today, driving around with the foot of snow still on my car - I got a lot of comments from people! ;-)

  3. I hate diets when you don't get instant and conclusive results almost immediately. Its very hard to keep motivated. Good luck with it.

  4. Shinejil, I feel pretty good actually. I still miss everything, but I'm not starving all the time. I actually feel less hungry now. Maybe it's because I'm so sick of salad I'd rather not eat, but still! :)

    Evergreen, I think it's going to snow more later this week! We definately didn't get as much as you. Hope you are staying warm!

    WFI, yeah, instant gratification is what got me here I guess. :) I'm trying to be patient.
