So far the diet is going well. I don’t find myself overly hungry during the day (though I can’t say I really feel full). The one problem is that both Mike and I have been having mild headaches on the diet. It could be withdrawal from all the sugars and salts that we usually eat, or just getting used to have less calories each day. Whatever the reason, it seems to be getting a bit better, and I hope we get used to it very soon.
I certainly seem to be losing weight (full report Saturday after week 1 is complete).
Our plan is to do the diet during the weekdays and then eat well on the weekends. I’ll be in Pittsburgh this weekend to visit my college weekend and celebrate her birthday, so I’ll have to be good with both eating and drinking. With so much progress in a week, however, I really don’t want to slip so soon.
One thing that is really cool is that every morning is like Christmas. I open our door and there waiting for me is our coolers of food! I have no idea what will be in it each day and I love the surprise.
When I open it up, it’s all neatly packaged and ready, having been made fresh the night before, and our menu is on top.
Here were the menus from the past two days:
I am continually impressed with the flavor and quality of the food. The portions are small, but there is so much flavor packed in that I don’t feel like I’m dieting. And then there was the apply-cherry strudel today. SOOOO good!
