OK, so today I was down .2 to 171.6 (-2.6). I am slightly frustrated this time around. When I originally started the 17 day diet, when I was about 226 pounds, I lost 6 pounds in the first 2 days. I know it's because back then it was a drastic change in diet (and I am sure a lot of water weight) whereas this time, it's not a drastic change. This is basically how I usually eat (with non-plan things worked in). I've had a good week so far and 2.6 is a great week's weight loss. I was just hoping to see some of this weight go faster at first. My long term goal is now only 26.6 pounds away and that sounds so very doable. But I was hoping I'd get there fast like I did the last time I did this diet and... I don't think it will.
I will keep track this weekend and be in full disclosure. Tomorrow we're traveling out of state to a birthday party and I am going to bring my water, green tea and make the very best choices possible. It may not be 100% on plan but it will be as healthy a day as I can make it. NO cake, NO alcohol... ugh.
Sunday will be my cheat day. Normally, especially in the first 17 days, I would not have one of these. However, a bunch of the girls and I in town have rented a limo and are going on a local wine tour. This has been planned since before I even decided to restart the diet. There will be wine tasting and a bit of carb eating so I don't get drunk. I already know this day will be a day off plan. I am going to exercise as much will power as I can to not go crazy overboard. I do not want to see my 2-3 pound loss this week go poof. I'll do my tastings, eat a little bit and just enjoy my day without getting stuffed or drunk. At least... that's the plan. I will post how I did though and keep myself 100% accountable.
