Lucy - Day 1 - Phase 2

I lost 8 pounds in 17 days. I slowed down the last week, probably due to lack of exercise and not enough water. Easy fix, since there was NO CHEATING! I'm so proud of myself. I'm really proud of Ted, too, but I won't spoil his numbers.

In starting Phase 2, we had oatmeal with apples this morning. I need to try to get it a little thinner, but when you're heating it up a couple times, you need to keep adding water so it doesn't get clumpy. Pretty satisfying, though, since I haven't had carbs like that in 17 days. For lunch, I had a salad with leftover roasted turkey. I have a sweet potato that I REALLY want to eat, but I'm full already after the salad and a 16.9 oz. bottle of water! Maybe I can have it as a snack.

We've noticed that the sample menus in the book don't recommend very many carbs for dinner, so we're trying to keep them in breakfast and lunch. We may occasioanlly have to slip in some sweet potato fries (baked, of course) to go with a hamburger patty, but I think the overall goal is to keep those carbs early in the day. Who would have thought that what time you eat is just as important as what you eat?

Grilled shrimp and steamed broccoli are on the menu for tonight. Then back to Phase 1 menus tomorrow. I think Phase 2 may move along quicker, since we'll be looking forward to the days we can get a little variety in.
