Okay, so I mistitled the last one. I am not done talking about this.
I got through yesterday without getting hungry. I got through yesterday without getting hungry and I had two protein shakes, I didn't even smoothie them up, just milk and the Zeal Weight Loss shake, for lunch. I ate two Kashi bars to maintain blood sugar, but I wasn't hungry. It took three days, but I'm starting to believe the label on the bag.
I have tried shake diets before. I've done slim fast. It didn't work too well. I just ate crap all afternoon from the vending machine. Yesterday was a little different in that I didn't *plan to work through my lunch. It just kind of happened half way through the morning meeting. I need to get caught up. So I worked through my lunch and drank my lunch while I was doing it.
I then came home and ate my leftover beef fajitas (no grease, 400 calories for the whole meal) and took the dog for a walk. It made my bad leg hurt so I put my feet up and then ten minutes later I did the exercise bike for 20 minutes. The exercise bike doesn't put pressure on my bad leg. After all this, about an hour and a half later I got hungry, so I made quaso and chips. At no point in this process did I lose my mind and pig out. I still had 400 calories left for my daily goal after all this.
I know I need to have at least 1200 net calories a day to avoid jacking my system up, so I'm going to stick to that, but this stuff is allowing me to be a lot more intentional about what I'm eating and I like that a lot. If I have to think about it before I put it in my mouth, realize I need to eat something instead of just mindlessly reaching for a pile of sugar, then I'm getting somewhere. Now to pay my bills and figure out if Leslie can go ahead and get the Zeal Burn supplements..
