This week has as been one of ups and downs. I have been mourning the loss of my good friends, carbohydrates and sugar, but I have been bonding heavily with my bathroom scale. Dieting is really all about mindset, and if you're not ready to give up your "old friends" and bond with new ones it is not going to work.
The reason why conventional diets don't work for me is because I need to see fast results and progress right away or I get frustrated and give up and give in. I will not lie, the first two days of Ignite were HARD. I was hungry, and I kept finding myself wanting to reach for a snack out of habit. I hung tough and I am glad I did, because my new "friend" the bathroom scale, told me I had lost 7 lbs. Now I know some of that is water weight, but my brain saw 7 lbs. and it does not care what kind of weight it is, the numbers went down!
The third day on Ignite you get to eat 2 meals and here is what I had for lunch.
When I got up this morning I weighed myself again and I was down another pound. That does not sound like much but they say on Day Four it is not unusual to gain a pound or two back, because of eating the day before and adding some water weight back. So, 8 lbs. in four days, I will take it!!!!
Day Four Ignite is just like the first and second day, protein only, so I had 4 oz. of Tuna for my morning meal. I added something called Vegenaise to the Tuna. It tastes just like Mayonnaise but it does not have any dairy products in it.
As I mentioned in some earlier posts, my Husband is on the Ignite Program too and he has lost 7 lbs. He is so excited he wants to do another 8 day program when this one ends. I never thought I would see the day!!!!!
