Diet week 2: Only 5 more days!

 Diet clipartIt’s 7 days into Grapefruit Diet (here is PDF) with 5 days to go and I have to admit I am not and never have been a big fan of Bacon for breakfast, but I do enjoy the Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice with poached eggs.

This diet is heavy on Meat and Vegetables and so far I have not been very hungry as I lose.

There have been lots of challenges, sticking to the diet when out and about has been a problem, especially as I am a coffee addict. Cutting down to one coffee a day has been HELL! 

I was so good on Thursday night at Knitting Club!

I had a Skim Milk Cafe Latte and said NO! to a piece of this delicious looking cake…

Knitting is a piece of Cake!

I confess I cheated a little on Friday (a spoon full of rice), and a lot on Saturday I was at a conference (they provided a packed lunch with egg salad sandwich, fresh veggies, pickles, olives, and an apple. I didn’t eat the brownie!)

Boy do I ever miss Bread!

Why am I trying to trim down?  That’s a good question!

My family are almost all diabetics, I am not yet, and weight is a factor for developing it.

– I have physical limitations due to illness and I hope reducing will improve my stamina.

– I also have arthritis in my back and feet, hope this will help with pain.

– Lastly, yes I am tired of shopping in the fat and dumpy section of the clothing store!

Weight at start of diet = 205 lbs

Current weight = 201 lbs

Target = 185 lbs

Weight loss so far = 4 lbs

Ultimate Target = 165 lbs lose 40 lbs
