Day One: Eat Like There's No Tomorrow!
We headed to the kitchen counter, mixed up one each and sat on the couch and gave ourselves the shot, which was painless. I bled a little, that's all. Then we proceeded to mix enough shots for the next 21 days each, put them in a plastic container and placed in the refrigerator. Every day at 10 am. we will both be giving ourselves the daily shot.
Now, for the good, er, GREAT part: today and tomorrow we need to fill our fat reserves up for maximum weight loss over the next 40 days. So, I popped several fig newtons before Gretchen had left the kitchen. Fatty foods all day for the next two days. Where do I begin?
I also need to stop at the grocery store and buy the allowed foods for the remainder of the diet and get some B-12 dots that you take daily under your tongue for energy.
I have to tell you that I am giddy with excitement that I might actually lose this extra weight, for once. I have tried for 6 years to go the 5 days a week exercise, eat the right foods and don't drink too much alcohol routine. By doing this, I have maintained this weight, but have not been able to lose the extra 10 pounds. It's been frustrating, I am not going to lie. My doctor says it has to do with my age and hormones and pre-menopausal issues. Nothing I can control, and being somewhat of a control freak in all aspects of my life, hearing those words just make me mad. So, my heart is filled with HOPE with the promise that this system will produce a different result!
I am thinking about going to the store for a huge Snickers bar or a Butterfingers bar! I cannot remember when I last had a candy bar. I think I am going to like today...DAY ONE of this diet! Talk to y'all tomorrow......................
