Today I start the low calorie portion of the HCG diet. So far it's gone very well. It's 1:45 in the afternoon and I haven't felt deprived or hungry.
I had a cup of coffee with 1T creamer this morning, then ate some Italian seasoned chicken and cucumber sprinkled with salt for a late lunch. I've also been drinking a lot of lemon water, and I've actually been enjoying it.
I'm giving myself a little freedom with the diet, since I'm trying to maintain my milk supply, and if it works I will continue to allow myself to have 1 cup of coffee a day with creamer. I also plan to up my protein if necessary, and cut out one of the fruits/veggies if needed.
I didn't actually gain that much weight from my binge days, despite eating a TON of fatty, high calorie foods. A huge burger from Red Robin, Butterbraid, candy, fries, etc...
We'll see what the scale has to say tomorrow. I've set my goal weight lower than the weight I was at when I got pregnant with Nora. I may stop before I get there, if I feel good about where I'm at.
I'll try to post every day with the weigh-in information, at least.
For now, I'm off to nap with my kiddies. They are all home from school and we had a late night last night.
