Today is day 3 with my umm.. diet? No, I don't like that term.. diet.. maybe effort.. ya!.. Day 3 in my effort to slim down to a size 14. I have been doing ok with the no soda aspect. But did you ever notice that when you try and quit anything or are trying to focus on a goal, others will unconsciously sabotage you??? I told Josh Sunday morning what I was doing with the Hoodia ( he never heard of it lol) and drinking more water since we were broke and can't afford my IV bag worth of Diet Pepsi. By Sunday evening I was not even craving a soda and surprised that I didn't have any of the normal withdrawal head aches that I usually get when I haven't had at least one a day. I am sure Josh had only good intentions when he picked up at the gas station a 2 litter of Diet Pepsi and was looking for a big hero's welcome home with it lol but instead I snapped at him about trying to ruin me lol Maybe PMS is also setting in???? I did share it with him.. ofcourse! LOL
I must tell you though that the Hooida has helped with protion control. I do feel fuller longer. I take 2 gel tabs with a big drink of water like 20 min before I know I am going to eat and some times right before I eat one more. Saturday I did feel a bit "jittery" and maybe a bit hyper.. I was in total cleaning mode.. and that is not such a bad thing LOL but I promised myself if that kept up I was going to drop the pills. But by Sunday and today that has stopped, as my messy house will testify to. UGH.. why is it what takes you all day to clean only takes children 1/2 an hour to trash???!!!
I DID wake up this morning with a dream still fresh in my mind about deep fried powered donuts..mmmmmmmm donuutttttsss.. mmmmmmm LOL Wonder where that came from?? Sometimes it is good thing not to have money to buy the things that you are craving!
I stepped on the scale after my shower today. According to it I have lost 5 pounds already!!! *looking over my flub.. but where did it go and when will it show outwardly that I have!!!* That was a bit encouraging to see but I have the sneaky suspicion that the thing needs a new 9V battery. Either way, I will take it that I am progressing, that is pretty good for it only being Day 3.
Maybe it's time to add exercising???? Ya.. this is how much I like thatidea
