I have good news! I'm down 12 pounds! 12 pounds! Yea! It's been tough going over the past 10 days but I'm seeing real progress again. I knew I needed to stick it out but doing it is easier said than done. It's day 22 and I didn't think I'd make it this far. I think I'll stick with it through Day 24 or Day 25. I haven't decided for sure but if everything goes as planned, that would take me to a total weight loss of 14 pounds or so.
I'm still struggling with my ideal weight. I have no idea what that number is but I do know that I'd like a little cushion as weight tends to oscillate a bit coming off the second phase of this protocol.
Time for my morning coffee which I actually look forward to these days.
Here's a tip I've learned over the past 3 weeks: Do you throw out coffee each afternoon? Here's a great idea. Put leftover coffee in the blender, add 8-10 ice cubes and blend. Next add a few drops of chocolate stevia and vanilla-creme stevia. Grab a straw and enjoy a yummy coffee blend for practically free!
