So this morning was my first weigh in and I wanted to do it first thing in the morning, no food, no beverage, just straight-up me. I also want to make sure that I follow this same protocol on all future weigh-ins to increase accuracy. Remember yesterday when I said I wouldn't be disappointed if I didn't lose much or even saw a small gain because I just started. Well I lied. I LOST 8 LBS!!!! No freaking joke I was so excited I jumped up and down in the bathroom and probably woke the couple that lives downstairs. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!
Today however, turned into a terrifying experience after my lunch break from work. I ate my usual bagel, subbed the cream cheese with two slices of american (fewer calories) and a glass of water. Then did my work-out. After the work-out I was feeling really weak and shaky so I laid down on the couch because I couldn't really do much else and woke up 45 minutes later on the floor. Late getting back to work and still feeling terrible so I wobbled into my office, ate 12 more mini-wheats because they were close at hand and laid my head back to rest. "Temptation" came home about 10 minutes later and found me asleep in my chair but he had to nudge me to get me to wake up. He fed me a few pieces of candy covered peanuts and some Sierra Mist because, obviously, my blood sugar was way too low.
I'm confused though because I actually ate more calories today, before the work-out, than I did any other day last week but clearly not enough. I still feel really, really bad. I am tempted to think it might be the Hoodia pills and maybe I will have to make sure I'm eating more high-protein foods in the mornings if I'm going to be taking it. I certainly know that, as bad as I want to lose weight, I don't want to endanger myself doing it. The look on "Temptations" face when he woke me was horrifying. He was really, really scared.
Edit: I posted the above before going for my birthday dinner with "Temptation" because I knew I would not likely post before bed once we started to celebrate. I allowed myself to splurge a little on sushi but still ate less than I thought I was going to because my stomach shrunk and I just couldn't do as many rolls as I used to. I also forced myself to eat a half a slice of cake, even though I was stuffed to the freakin' gills, because "Temptation" took me to a surprise party at his boss's house where they had the cake waiting and sang to me. I want to feel guilty about last night but I don't. One day a month to enjoy a few rarities like cake and sushi can't be all that bad and, in the long run, this lifestyle will be easier to sustain if I don't feel like I am completely depriving myself.
