Up before my alarm today, stepped on my scale, and just the anticipation of dieting has left me 4lbs lighter. Whoop whoop. So I’m starting at 196. I shook my mix with regular skim milk. It’s not the worst thing I’ve ever put in my mouth… It was a little mineral-ish and grainy, but likely because I didn’t blend or shake it enough. Just plain it tastes fine. Was super weird not to go to Starbucks!
I usually eat breakfast, rice cooker oatmeal, or cereal or fruit. The shake wasn’t enough. I’m super hungry. It’s only 10:30. I have some fruit and I’m drinking herb tea. I did see a recipe for the shake mix in oatmeal- that may be better for me!
I took measurements and pictures, this is fun- like a super personal science experiment. Now I need a hot lab partner…
I have a theory,
Before pictures…to show the best “transformation”.
*no make up or hair done
* too tight or unflattering cut clothing
*poor artificial light
*first thing in the am or late at night
Now even if I took the after pictures tomorrow I could look better!
It physically pained me to post those. See the sacrifices I’m ready to make for science??!!
As you may notice, I hold my 200lbs fairly well. Good genes, thanks mom & dad! But the areas that pushed me into dieting were my arms, they look like delicious sausages (I am hungry) and my back up chin. It’s not really a double chin, more like the first runner up chin. It’s there patiently waiting in the event that my primary chin cannot perform its duties, or is involved in some scandal. It is very good at waving in parades I’m sure. (along with my sausage arms, that are still waving from 10 min ago).
I used to be so ridiculously hot… I’ll post some of those pictures later…
