Today I get to hang out with Zoey! (My beautiful daughter) She’s 12 going on 20 and looks about 16. Ouch. Anyway we’re having a really great time today. Which is good, she’s still kind of mad that I sent her to her dad’s to live. She even said today that she thought she could tell I was losing weight. I don’t know if she’s right (I can’t tell) but I do think my face might be shrinking.
I went over the list of foods I’m allowed to eat and when. It is good – I’ll be on the diet for life at 6 weeks… which is 3 days before my dad’s wedding. I don’t know what kinds of foods he’ll be having, but I’m sure there will be pasta (which I’m supposed to avoid) and salad (which I’m ok to eat, I think, provided there is low-fat dressing). I hope there’s food I can eat and that will be yummy for me.
I cheated today. Not bad, but I drank some juice. Full-sugar, non-clear juice. It was delicious. I avoided the pizza though – so bonus. I also tried the Optifast in chocolate. Haven’t tried it in the pudding/cake batter form yet but the drink isn’t as good as the vanilla. It’s not as thick feeling (the vanilla kind of feels like you’re drinking milk).
Anyway, I can’t concentrate with Zoey sitting over my shoulder. So let’s get down to the numbers.
Today’s weight: 280.4
Total weight lost: 11 lbs
