That's how long I have left. 3 days. 1500 calories will be consumed in those three days. Isn't that just totally nuts!?!?! In three days I will consume the same amount (or less!!) than most people eat in one day.
And I can feel it, people. I. AM. DONE. I want to make and eat food. I don't want to be restricted anymore. I'm branching out, eating things that aren't approved. Not bad things, but things like egg whites, pinto beans, rotisserie chicken--all of which has salt on it. Today I only lost 0.2, however I'm not worried or even sad about it. I've lost 2 pounds total in the last four days. There are bound to be low loss days following higher loss days. Plus, I did eat a lot of salt yesterday.
I will not be continuing past Friday, even if I have drops left (and I think I just may have 1-2 days worth of drops left, even with upping my drops to 36 a day instead of 30). I can feel that I am at the end of the road for this round, and I am okay with that. I won't be at 135. I will maybe be in the high 136's. But that's okay. I plan to do my last round in April. And then I will be at my goal weight. Cuz I can lose 10 pounds in a round, especially if 3-4 days aren't compromised by bad drops.
I've lost 9.4 pounds so far this round, so I think I can make it to 10 total. But I'll have to be very strict, very conscious, and not throw in the towel like I so badly want to do right now.
See, it's been fairly hard to be a single mom to 3 very active, very hyper, very needs-hands-on-attention-most-of-the-day children. Eating only 500 calories a day. And no reprieve at the end of the day. And now this week is my PMS week, which makes me even more tired, crampy, grumpy. And all I want to do is have a good, home-cooked warm meal. And some chocolate. But, I will wait. I will endure til the end.
And, Lord help me, I will not gorge on Saturday. Technically, you're supposed to wait 2 days after you stop the drops and continue eating 500 calories a day. But I've never done that. I've found that the drops are definitely out of my system within 24 hours and I begin eating regular people food. ;-) But in moderation. So I'll really try to reign myself in and not overdo it.
So here we go. 3 more days. I can do this. Right!!?? Yes, I can!!
