The first week has gone by, they say that it is the hardest. I tend to not think so. I am so full of hope and excitement during the first week, it is usually during the second and third week that I tend to falter. But, still being the little optimist-that-can, I won't even entertain those thoughts!
Big news... I am down 8.5 pounds. Crazy right? But, when I think about the amount of carbs and sugars I was eating I'd have to expect that there would be significant weight loss once I removed them, and there was! I know I can't expect these results every week, but I am thrilled with my first week!
I am also amazed that I survived this week. My dog, Mabel, also had life changing events. She is now diabetic and started insulin the same day I started my diet. So while I'm eating every 2-2.5 hours, she is drinking water (every hour) and then going for a potty walk (every hour) and getting shots twice a day (glad both me and her are okay with that). It's pretty much insane here, I haven't gotten much of anything done other than food prep and potty walks. My front door reminds me of a clown car at the circus -- in and out, around and around. I guess it is a good thing I work from home. Well, usually work.
Between all the food prep and potty walks I did managed to squeeze out one little project this week. I'm sorry but I can't share it just yet, but I will, no worries. Oh, and I did manage to press, starch, restarch, and cut into strips about 5 yards of fabric for a kaleidoscope class I'm taking. Now I just need to sew ten sets of strata before tomorrow morning! That and get my tushy back in gear on customer work.
More soon... have a wonderful week quilties!
