I decided to weigh...this would be the first time I have weighed since starting...I lost 5 lbs since the first day which was June 13th. So 3 days in to it I had lost 5 lbs. YAY!!
For breakfast: 9 strawberries
One thing that has been interesting is that I can't inhale the food. If I eat it slow with very small bites it actually tells my body that it's full. This is a complete first for me.
For lunch: turkey burger patty and two pieces of celery
After lunch we had a bunch of the my friends and their kids came over to swim. This was really fun and it wasn't hard to not eat anything UNTIL they had pizza delivered. That was hard because of what a big pizza fan I am. I got through it without any cheating.
I walked up stairs and had such a light headed feeling that I was starting to get a head ache. I decided after my husband got home from work to lay down in hopes that this horrible feeling would go away. I understand that it's going to take a little getting used to. The book also states that this is a detoxing as well.
After the nap, I woke up and thought, OK...time for dinner. I walked in to the kitchen and my husband, in a kind gesture, picked up a pizza for the girls without my knowing. He thought that it would be easier on me to not have to make a dinner for them different than the one that I will be eating myself. Very thoughful indeed....HOWEVER I felt as though I was very hungry and was not going to be able to beat the temptation of pizza again. So I had a piece. I know this is an absolute NO in HCG world, however I'm sure I'm not the first that has "slipped" on the 2nd day of the 500/day calorie diet.
I decided that even with my cheat I was still around 3/4 less calories than my normal diet.
We'll see what tomorrow brings...
