8 Week blood sugar diet Week #1

Discoveries, revelations and a 2lb loss!

Yesterday I discovered that I am not 3 1/2 stone overweight but 2 1/2.  Silly moo  I weighed myself on the scales on the carpet...I didn't know!!!  Husband and son worked it out.  Anyway, that was and easy stone aye! A quick check on the scales this morning revealed a 2lb loss.  Good start.
Last night was a bit strange.  I felt some feelings that I thought had gone forever after my oophectomy two years ago...nice ones I mean.  I actually feel that not filling my body with sugary rubbish has allowed me to feel my emotions more...good ones.  I didn't sleep brilliantly, but my body ached from the walking and I like to feel full before I go to sleep.  I started the day with hot water and lemon and a 4,800 step brisk walk.  That's around two and a bit miles...it was gorgeous warm weather, a lovely late summer day so I just enjoyed being out nice and early.  I breakfasted on muesli and a bit of fruit.  Have to be careful with the berries as fruit is full of fructose.  This breakfast came in at 177 Calories, and I ate at 11.30 after a 16 hour fast.  Numerous cups of tea later I made this gorgeous lunch of Alaskan salmon, flash fried Cavallo Nero with fennel seeds, 1/4 of an avocado, lettuce, cucumber, celery and tomato, which totalled 385 calories.  I ate this around 3.30pm, and it set me up perfectly for my late afternoon 5,300 steps walk
Lunch 385 Calories


I know dinner looks a little insubstantial but it was hugely tasty with that plush full fat yogurt with raspberries and blue berries and some mixed spice, nutmeg, cinnamon and cocoa sprinkled over the top




dinner...129 calories
I start work at 10.30 on Wednesdays and finish around 6, so I made sure my last meal was at 5.30 tonight so I have the option to eat before I go if I want...however this would push my last meal of the day to the time I usually finish work and head to the supermarket, so I will have to see how the cookie crumbles.  If only I was allowed a cookie.  It's the evening now, my worst time for cravings so I'm being strong.. however I want to stress that I'm not at all hungry.  I just want chocolate, cake that kind of thing. I love the fact that I actually feel satisfied as far as fullness goes.  I'm wondering how I'm going to be feeling tomorrow at work though, especially as the canteen chocolate cake is out of this world.  Is it too soon to have a cheat moment?!
