Day 15 LM - 116.1 (-2.9, -.6 of LDW)

Good morning, peeps!

Isn't it amazing how that number on the scale dictates how you're going to feel that day? I weigh in every day around 4-5 in the morning after using the bathroom and before I take my thyroid medication and go back to bed. To make sure I remember what the number was, I write it in my notes section on my iPhone and then I email that note to myself as well. Next to 119 was a :( and next to 116.1 was a :) . That's ridiculous.  I was barely over my limit and still fitting in 2s and 4s. Why on earth would I put a frowny face next to that number?

Anyway, thanks guys for the comments. You're all right.

The steak day obviously worked. I used the ones my husband buys. I didn't know what they were until I shopped and found them. They were eye of round. Super lean, but still juicy. Because they are so much leaner, I was able to eat more so I started eating at 3 and managed to eat 4 small steaks - about 650 grams.

I received an email from another local HCG clinic who may be interested in what I'm doing as far as coaching goes. I'll let you know what, if anything, develops!

Okay, time to check in on you guys and then GET TO WORK! Thanks again!


I'm meeting with the Physician's Assistant at the clinic at 2:15!

I think I'll be working with this clinic! The PA I met with is an absolute delight. More details to follow!

What a wonderful textbook case example of a successful steak day!
Do you buy the steaks at Costco?
That's great that you have an opportunity to consider a partnership with the clinc - so happy for you. Hugs to you.

Thanks Kathryn! Actually, the steaks came from a local grocery store called Harmon's. :)

Woohoo!! Great results!
Yes, amazing how it can mess up the morning to be over by such and such.... good point to remember that its a number (remember we were going to focus on how clothes fit this last round?) and to chill about it... Hope you have an awesome day!

helderheid said...

YES, Lis! That's right!! I'd forgotten. Sheesh!

Girl, I think one side of me weighs 116 lol. But Im with you how the scale numbers can dictate how you feel about yourself that day. Have to remind myself not to do that :)

Yay for the steak day...I had to do one Monday and it got me down 2.2, though its always so much quicker to go up then down, thats for sure.

And 116, wow, I would Love to weigh that....thats wonderful! Without the HCG, im holding steady, but cant seem to lose, what a bummer!

MM, it's a reminder that those tendencies don't go away by themselves! :) We can't let the number dictate our moods no matter how close or far away from our goals we are!

HH, I can't lose without HCG (past steak days) either. I think it has to do with our thyroids. :)

Amazing! You lost the EXACT amount of your gain yesterday! Talk about stabilizing!!

I really think your new Rx for thyroid is helping your system a lot. How did you find that Dr? Isn't he a naturopath or something?

hugs to you!
