February 21st, 2011 - Off-time Update

This extended off time has made some of my regular posting somewhat sparse, so please forgive me.

I am delighted to inform you all that as of this morning my weight has dropped in the off time by 2 lbs, despite my eating what I would consider "normal" food. I have had in the last couple days some cream-based soup, a fish burrito with shredded lettuce/cabbage (not sure) and pico de gallo, baked breaded chicken, corned beef hash and eggs, a "breakfast sandwich" and hashbrowns (my worst meal of the off-time, in my opinion), a personal-sized pizza with lots of veggies and garlic, a bowl of cheerios, some pad thai, and a taco salad that was heavy on the veggies and very light on the beef, cheese, and beans. What I am most proud of, however, is that I have had no alcohol in this period. I have craved a beer at times, but I have not had one. Perhaps after the next week! (Not that I drink a lot, but one does like to have a drink from time to time, a "craving" if you will that only grows when you know you can't have it)

I am preparing to start the new diet week again, and was planning on starting tomorrow, Tuesday, but plans which I had scheduled for this evening have been pushed back until tomorrow, which unfortunately means pushing back the start of Week 2 until the next day, Wednesday. I am a bit miffed about this but it is out of my hands at this point.

If I continue to drop small amounts of weight in the next 48 hours I suppose I'll be ok with the delay. I am choosing to eat better food for the most part, loading up veggies as much as possible and avoiding foods high in fat as much as possible.

Thank you all again for helping me along in this journey, and for your encouraging words both here and on my Facebook. Wednesday morning I'll do the official weigh-in prior to starting the diet again, and we'll go from there!
