Day 1 (April 29, 2013): I started the morning excited. I made my strawberry smoothie, following the recipe to the 'T', but after the blender stopped blending and the time came for me to put my smoothie into a cup, I realized the size of my drink was a lot smaller than what I was expecting. Goodness, so the drinks sold at restaurants must be 4 servings in one. Right now, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is sounding really good!
I didn't want to think negatively or feel the guilt of wanting to cheat on this diet already because after reading the book I've learned that guilt will "elevate the release of fat storage hormones" (pg. 25). Thankfully, 10AM came quickly and I was able to snack. I had a mango... Usually, a snack for me consists of a glass of water and a donut. Or the stick shaped crackers and cheese spread. Anything but a fruit. I gobbled down the mango and all that was left was skin and the seed.
Poor mango juice didn't even have a chance to drip all over my hands as it would under normal circumstances...I was hungry. I felt myself getting ready to walk to the fridge to look for some junk to fill me up, but instead I went for water. I don't know what it is about water, but sometimes it can be just what a girl needs!
Starting weight: Too embarrassed to mention...
Pant Size: 10 - 12
