Day Seven - February 16th, 2011

Well, friends, the week has reached it's end. I have made it through the entire week, except for the next couple hours. I still have soup to eat, having had only one big bowl of my remaining supply today, but I will finish it.

Today was pretty good. Once again I awoke without being tired, although later in the day I started to feel a bit sleepy. I brought a double bowl of soup to work with me to eat, which I did around 1:30, the earliest I've eaten in the last several days.

When I got home, I made myself some brown rice. Today it says to stuff myself on soup and rice, and so I've attempted to do. I also added some steamed broccoli to my last batch of rice. I've also flavored it with some sweet chili sauce, which is good, but perhaps I'll also have to look into some spicy teriyaki perhaps.

This week has been a good learning experience for me. I know now that I can do this diet with ease. With all of you supporting me and following up on my progress, I feel confident that I can reach my goals.

I'm looking forward to the next few days, not just because I can have some "real" food again, but because I can take and see what exactly my previous eating habits does to me, both in how it affects my weight and also how it affects my energy levels. I really haven't felt this energized in a long time. Now, this doesn't mean I'm going completely back to my old eating habits for the off days, so don't worry there.

Thank you again for being a part of this blog. Your comments have been great so far, and I hope to hear from more of you as this goes on. At my last check, people from 12 different US states and 2 foreign countries are following me on this journey. I'm thankful for all of your well wishes and your encouragement.

I can't have alcohol til the early hours of Saturday, so I'll just hoist my imaginary glass of champagne and say Cheers! to getting this first week out of the way.

In the morning I will have my official weigh in, which I will post before going to work. Later in the day, as promised via Facebook, I shall post the diet for anyone interested in trying it, word for word.

Thanks again for a great week!
