I am on day 11. I haven’t been keeping up with the posts but it’s eating as per the other days more or less.
I actually went out to eat a few times to break the boredom and stuck with the program.
I went to lunch in a Mexican restaurant, Zivaz, and didn’t get the rice, the chips, or the tortillas but did get a wonderful homey chicken dish (lunch portion size) with a lot of vegetables, black beans, salsa, and salad. I didn’t miss any of those carbs that I usually O.D. on.
Today I went to pick up a salad at Sauce. My salad was spinach, chicken, pinenuts, and tomatoes with a creamy gorgonzola dressing. Hold the roll and butter. It was yummy.
I went to volunteer and they had a lunch break of pizza and chose to work through the break and bypass the pizza. I knew if I got near the pizza, it would be curtains. There are some things that I simply cannot resist and pizza is one of them.
And I hit the dried apricots and South Beach protein bars which are not part of phase 1 but so be it.
So far I have lost 5 pounds. All good news.
