Today I finally did it. I reached my first big milestone. The weight I haven’t been at in at least 11 years (in my last post I said 15…but based on 2 outfits I bought just prior to my first wedding in 2001 that I’m now fitting in to, I was this weight in April 2001). Yes, I said first wedding. Two weddings, one marriage, someday I’ll bore you with that tale.
So today I’m 56.1 pounds down. Day 91. It hasn’t been the easiest week. Monday I was faced with bagel & cream cheese, a celebratory lunch, and cupcakes. Today I’ve been faced with an ice cream social. For real. For real for real. Look, I don’t care what you eat, but while I can’t eat it, I really don’t want to be around it. And no, I can’t eat the damn banana. Fruit is not on my plan. Yes, that’s right. Yes, it is a healthy diet, thanks for asking.
Some people do have a bit of an issue with the Ideal Protein plan, but it’s not meant to be forever. It’s high protein, very low carb, very very low sugar, and very low calories. No fruit is on the diet because of the natural sugar. Carrots, corn, peas, and potatoes are not on the diet either. Yes, I’ve survived just fine. That doesn’t mean I want bread and treats in front of my face. Just like a recovering alcoholic doesn’t want vodka and beer bottles sitting on her desk, or a crack addict with crack sitting in front of him. Don’t get pissed at me when I don’t go to an optional ice cream social “just come for the comraderie”. Ugh.
But anyway, I weigh something today I haven’t in more than 11 years, so yay. Yay for me! Yay!
