So many

I’ve wanted to blog so many times recently but I couldn’t seem to put my thoughts to words that made sense. And when I did think I could make sense of everything something came up with the kids or I had an appointment but I am here now.

I started the new weight loss plan and although I cannot go into specific details I have been given the ok to tell my story just not share others.

I have been terrified of starting this diet. I was afraid I was going to be hungry, fail or just plain give up. I was also afraid that I would have massive headaches and not be able to function. But on Saturday I took the plunge and just decided that I was going to do this. I was going to give it my all and the hard work has paid off. Before I tell you my results so far let me tell you a little about the diet.

So as I mentioned this is a medical weight loss program and not something that everyone can participate in or should. I am in phase 1 of three. In phase one you are allowed 1000-1200 calories a day. You have two meal replacements and a lean cuisine type meal for supper and two snacks a day that’s it. Oh and some PGX granules to keep you full and satisfied. I only put mine on my supper since I haven’t experienced any hunger yet. Now I know some people are going to freak out when they read that I am only eating 1000 calories but please remember I am being closely supervised by an obesity specialist and he has done his homework to make sure that this is safe for his patients.

Now the good part. I have been following my diet to a T since Saturday and I am officially down 5 lbs today. The weight loss won’t always be this dramatic but for right now I will take it.

I’ve had a few people ask me what I eat in a day so I will give you a sample menu of what I’m eating and keep updating you as I go thru the program.

Breakfast: meal replacement shake

Snack: cheese string and apple

Lunch: meal replacement shake

Snack: spinach, cucumber, almonds, lemon poppy seed dressing

Supper: PC blue menu Italian Lasagna with pgx granules sprinkled on top.

And lots of water

I have to say I haven’t felt deprived at all so far on this diet. I am eating at regular intervals and I am eating quality food. In fact yesterday I went to a potluck ¬†event that had a free sundae bar and I didn’t have any. In fact I didn’t eat any of the food at the potluck I portioned my own food and brought it with me. I am tired of losing and gaining the weight. And this is my last chance before surgery so I will give it my all.
