OK, I know I said I was only going to weigh every 17 days. But day 17 of Phase 2 landed on a Sunday and as I discussed in the previous post, weighing in on a Monday is a very bad idea for me. So I checked in a little early since Friday is usually a good day and we start Phase 3 Monday.
How did I do? Ok, lost about 2 lbs more and over all I'm now down about 15/16 give or take a 1/10 I think.
I will say I'm not disappointed, 2 pounds in 2 weeks is what I was expecting. Bring us back to the universal one pound/one week equilibrium. I did not expect the higher number I lost in Phase 1 to continue, so I was prepared for it.
Could I have done better? Absolutely. First off I haven't been exercising. This is something I have to get going. I simply will not be successful long term with out working in some exercise. Second, my work situation over the last two weeks has been problematic and stressful. Leading to days where I skipped lunch, skipped snacks, ate too late, didn't hardly drink water and green tea was non existent. It's just really messed with my daily schedule. So, I can't blame the diet for any lack of loss, I simply didn't do a very good job following it as I should.
More thoughts later.
