I also, secretly hoped that my body needed a boost in calories to kick start weight loss again. I have heard that our bodies think they are starving and start hoarding weight until we up the calories and then the pounds will start dropping off again. I don't think I have actually experienced this, but there is a first time for everything.
With those two things in mind, in order not to freak out if I had a dramatic upswing this morning, I decided to list out what I'd eaten yesterday and approximate the calories. Since I did not weigh or measure any think I ate, I tried to inflate calories to be sure I got them all.
I ate an omelet, with three eggs, sausage, ham and cheese. I estimated that to be 540 calories. That kept me so full that I didn't eat anything else until around 2:00 when I ate a few bites of the pork roast. It was delicious. I also ate pork roast for supper. I had a normal sized serving then. I estimated a double serving to account for the bites I had in the afternoon. I added 420 calories for that. After supper, I still really wanted some thing sweet. (In fact, I still do! It is killing me!!!) Instead, I ate a small handful of cashews. I estimated that to be 160 calories.
My total calories for the day were about 1120. For 21 days, my calories should be between 1000 and 1500. So, I accomplished that without even trying.
This morning, my weight was up 0.4. I was only mildly disappointed. I recognize that as bad as I want it to be true, there are consequences. Plus, I still haven't gotten to the starvation mode thing. I realize that is a good thing.
Today, I am fully with the 21 day plan. I can to this. It is a vital part of the success of the hcg. Now, if I could just figure out a way that M&M's could be protein, I would be golden.
