i feel like i am writing a diary in a remote cave where i am trying to survive. lol day 6, i caught a fish.........the mosquitos are killing me......
anyway, day 6 of skim milk diet. i am down 13 pounds from day 1. not shabby. the first three days were the worst. 4 was rough in the evening. really reaaly bad. i added a some fat free broth which helped alot mentally i think. at least after surgery we can have something that tastes different than milk.
day 5 was the best for me, i felt like i got over a hump. today is pretty good too. i went grocery shopping and didnt have all the cravings i would normally have walking through a store. after a while i reached my limit but i felt good about it.
sugar free syrups are the bomb. i have had pumpkin pie, almond roca, coconut, strawberry etc. only caveat is that i am starting to feel like they are messing with my blood sugar, after a few days i started feeling lightheaded and nauseous pretty quick after drinking them, the last 2 days i had plain milk and didnt seem to have the same effects. i may try a syrups again tomorrow and see if that is for sure the culprit.
husband and sister are doing 1 week with me for solidarity. they have both lost 7 pounds. week 1 is almost over, 3 more to go, i cant wait to reach the halfway point!
