Jo, you really did have a great DD, didn't you! I usually find I have a lot of energy on Down Days too. Isn't that strange? You'd think a person would just be lying around, all weakened by the lack of FOOD, FOOD, FOOD... but just the opposite seems to happen. Plenty of strength. Tons of energy. And an ever shrinking waistline. :)
DD for m too. I was tired and hungry today so it was rough but I haven't slept well the last 2 nights so I know that's part of it.
B- protein shake, 1 scoop protein 90, 1T cocnut oil 120, 1 cup almond milk 40
L- 2 boiled eggs. 140
S- 1 salmon pouch 70, 1 cup brocoli 20, half of a zucchini 20, cucumber 20
D- 1 tuna pouch 70, spinach and romaine 30, mushrooms 10, 5 cal dressing
About 650 for the day and ill have a 5 cal sf jello later
I was gonna tell you guys one thing that seems to help with appetite is the crystal lite fiber packet. It tastes amazing and it has inulin. It helps in the morning with my appetite and it helps to poop a lot on DDs. I feel like its kinda detoxing. You guys might check it out.
Total for today was......746 calories (did have some snacks this evening) and 66.67g carbs!
Edited to say: Today is now Wednesday and I'm down in weight to 141. I now know I will need to eat almost all my DD calories to maintain or I will continue to lose and I really am VERY happy where I'm at right now!
And all the while you're doing it on a diet that is fuller and more generous in its variety than you've been at for quite some time. Hmmmm..... Now how could that be? Oh! Right! It's JUDDD! :hyst:
Where did the Wednesday thread go? I like to see what you guys are eating! :)
Oh! I guess none of us got around to posting the Wednesday thread. Too busy gabbing on other subjects, I guess. :laugh:
Off to start a Wednesday thread right now. Look for it..... :laugh:
