Last Friday I went back to the nutritionist for my 2-week weigh-in. Once again, I had lost almost no weight.
The nutritionist told me I have reached a plateau (again), and asked if I’d like to try a much different, more difficult diet for the next 2 weeks to “jump start” my system. I figured I’d give it a go.
Well, this new diet had better work because it is AWFUL. I feel like I’ve only been eating shrimp, lettuce and slices of turkey since Monday, and it’s all starting to taste pretty gross. On top of that, I am starving by mid-afternoon. So far I’ve cheated with sushi (Wednesday night) and half a bagel (last night) because my stomach just can’t handle how little it’s being given right now.
Today I’m excited because it’s “all fruit, all day… plus a sandwich” day! I love fruit and sandwiches, so I’m happy for the next 24 hours.
I’ll give it a few more days and if I’m still hungry, I’ll send the nutritionist an e-mail to see if we can’t beef up this diet a bit so I can survive the next 10 days without binging on pizza, Dr. Pepper and Froot Loops.
Here’s another before and after to keep me motivated through next week.
These last 7 pounds are killing me.
