I have been sick. It’s just a cold but I am finding I am reacting very differently than I normally would have in the past. Before I started the Ideal Protein Diet, when I got ill I would start eating everything in sight. I would drag myself to the store to buy every comfort food I could think of and then bring them all home and start pigging out. Eating all that garbage just made me feel a little better…or at least I thought it did.
This time I have stuck to the Ideal Protein Diet protocol and even though the thought of toast slathered with butter has been very tempting I have not succumbed to it. I have continued to lose pounds while I have been sick and that has made me feel a whole lot better than the food would have made me feel.
I am down to 207.4 on my home scale! That is a total of 42 pounds lost so far!!! I have an official weigh-in next week and am super excited to see what their scale says and what my measurements will be. I have finally fit into a pair of jeans I bought 6 years ago thinking I was going to lose more weight at that time but instead found myself getting larger & larger. At one point I thought about giving these brand new jeans away since I didn’t think I would ever be able to wear them. So I removed the tags this morning and tried them on once again and THEY FIT! How exciting is that?!?!?! I feel so good!!! Well, except for this stupid cold…LOL!
Have a great day!
