So here I am starting another diet. <sigh>
My chiropractor, Dr Dusty DuBois at Bothell Chiropractic & Wellness actually administers the diet and each week I’m supposed to weigh in and talk with my coach.
Of course I was hesitant because I thought, “Oh here we go again. Another diet and one where I have to eat prepacked foods that taste like cardboard.” I can’t handle another disappointment. I desperately need a win and finally lose the weight forever.
Dr DuBois said, “This will be your last diet.” She then showed me a life size photo of her as she affectionately calls “Chubby Dusty”. I was so shocked by the difference and she doesn’t look like one of those people who lost a lot of weight – she looks like she’s always been skinny.
So I told her I’d think about it.
I went home and researched Ideal Protein, looked at other dieters before and after pictures and was sold.
When I signed on the dotted line and swore to give my first child if I ever cheated (they don’t know know I’m too old to have kids now so it was easy to sign), I was weighed, measured, and given my first weeks bag of Ideal Protein foods, a Phase 1 (there are 4 phases) guide sheet on what I can and can’t eat, and my first week menu plan.
So here I am starting another diet – hopefully the last diet.
Breakfast: Ideal Protein Chocolate Drink Mix mixed in my Vita Mixer with 2 shots decaf coffee and ice for a yummy frappuccino.
Lunch: Ideal Protein Chili
Dinner: 8 oz grilled salmon with spiraled zucchini
Snack: Ideal Protein Chicken Noodle Soup with 1 cup of brocolli and 1 cup of spinach.
Got in a 8 – 8 oz of water.
I developed a nasty headache this evening, but I’m sure it’s just the change in eating. I’m not stuffing myself with junk food, carbs, and sugar.
1 day down….
