R3P2D6 Sunday is for Confessions

Round 3 Week 1 of Phase 2 Day 6
1.0ml HCG (166.6iu) IM Injection
LIW: 168.2
Yesterday's Wt: 172.6
Today's Wt: 172.0
0.6 lbs LOST overnight

This is what I did yesterday, I was catching up on my soap (Y&R) and ate my version of shrimp Hot & Sour soup. It was too spicy and really wasn't all that great except for the shrimp. A couple of hours into my soaps I started to get hungry and started on my water. After watching 5 hours of soaps (in warp speed thanks to fast forward) I gave in. I heated up a Stouffer's chicken asiago paninni and munched on a few Ruffles. I decided that that was all I was going to eat the rest of the day. Let me tell you, that was an awesome sandwich and it was very tiny. I don't feel all that bad but just down that I gave in. I just remind myself that it was a very small sandwich and was a total of 500 calories for the day. Not sure about the soup because I really didn't finish it. I'm happy with the loss since I did go off protocol and still lost something. Anyway, I loafed all day and worked on crossword puzzles, cryptoquotes and jumbles just to keep my mind off of food. I'm really not hungry just that dang hand to mouth habit. I should start crocheting just to keep my hands busy!! Oh, after I ate some of those Ruffles, I threw the bag in the trash!! Unfortunately, there are still some Fritos lingering around here. Now that Miz Biz is on P2, I need to get my game on!! Haaaaa!

Here's yesterday's menu synopsis:
Breakfast: 1 16oz coffee w/stevia and 1/2&1/2, 1 16oz. black coffee
Lunch: shrimp hot & sour soup
Dinner: (around 2:30pm) Stouffer's Chicken Asiago Paninni and Ruffles chips
4 tbls. milk of magnesia

Oh, you are guys are just too funny!! It made me laugh to read everyone's comments this morning.

Jen, I'm shorter than you, so I know exactly what you mean by those pesky 10 lbs. looking on us.

Becca, yes, no shopping until more weight comes off. I did get some medium sized blouses at Penney's the other day because I like to color red and my other red blouses are just too big!! Those are my new pajamas for summer. So I only bought 2 and 2 t-shirts, medium as well. Of course I haven't tried them on yet but I will soon!

Monica, thanks for stopping by, yes, I do come down hard on myself and expect too much, but I'll take what I can get. Yes, I am very anxious to get past my LIW!!

Biz, I'm getting a little scared now that you are back on P2, I just have to remind myself of that when I want to cheat again!! Just because I started a few days ahead of you doesn't mean you won't catch up to me quickly. We are very close in weight right now so it's on girl!! j/k

Congrats on still losing!

I've always thought about taking up knitting but I'd have to teach myself as nobody I know does it.

Throw out those fritos if you have to!

Oh Mary, it's so nice to log on to your blog and see those purple BF and I find each other unique butterflies and give them to each other as gifts-her fav is purple butterflies so I think of her when I'm on your blog! :)

Okay, so now back to YOU! (LOL) Don't worry about the sandwich, at least you had a loss! I heard when people go to AA they say that "relapse is part of recovery" I think food can work the same way! How about we justify it that way?! Oh just wait until you see what we did this evening...I'll save it for our blog tomorrow! I'm praying for a loss! Ed "made" me do it!

That grazing thing is murder I tell you, it's just something you have to suck up and do.

This aint a competition, but be wary, I am on my way!

Something that was said on Lili's blog really REALLY resonates with me:

"In a nutshell, her basic tenant was if you're gonna eat something, make sure it is exactly what you want and fully enjoy every bite. If you want an icecream sundae for dinner, do it -- make sure you go out and get the most exquisite one you can, and sit down and focus on every bite. Feel the creamy textures in your mouth, savor each flavor. Don't first shove some "good food" down (meat and vegetables) before you go get your sundae -- go directly to start, collect $200. Eat that sundae and love it. And no guilt."

Now was that sandwich the "most exquisite" sandwich. That is where I am with this thing. If it's not absolutely the BEST then it's not worth it. If it was, well then by golly, go with the flow.

I soooo agree with Biz. Kudos to you for not throwing in the towel for the rest of the day too. I've been know to do that when I cheat.

You still had a loss and that's a great thing.
