Day 30 Weigh-In: Say Cheese

When I arrived at the center for my Day 30 Weigh-In my consultant says I look like I have shrunk at least 2 sizes!

Okay, that's sweet. But 2 Sizes?  After what I've been through, I should be almost toddler size. Forget sizes 2-8. I should be size 18 months. How about we get me into a onesie?

She warns me that even though I have no more HCG injections, I still have 3 weeks of 'maintenance' ahead of me.

This means slowly introducing fat back into my life. I know what you're thinking. "Just look behind you."  Yes, we've met. But we're not talking about that much fat. I am allowed exactly one ounce of cheese. A day. Pitiful right?   How big is an ounce of cheese? Exactly 1 square inch. Nevertheless, I am over the moon! I never really loved cheese all that much, but now the idea of it sounds so decadent. Just saying cheese, makes me happy! Okay, so maybe I've been feeling a little deprived.

I am also allowed to have 4 ounce servings of protein instead of 3 1/2 ounces. I know. Big Whoop. I can also have 2 servings of fruit daily. 1 at breakfast and 1 at lunch. What that means is 6 strawberries, 1 apple, 1 orange or 1/2 of a grapefruit. Aside from that I am still not allowed any starch or sugar and that means none of the following:                                                           
  • Bread
  • Potatoes
  • Corn
  • Wine (whine)
  • Crackers
  • Cereal
  • Chocolate
  • Popcorn
  • Chips
  • Cookies
  • Ice Cream
  • Cake
  • Pizza
  • Pasta
  • Candy
It occurs to me that the next three weeks are not going to be much easier than the last three. 

Now its time for the weigh-in and measurements:

Day 30 results: 13.5 pounds and 32.5 inches. (Holy Spanks Batman! That's over 2 & 1/2 feet.)

I'm a little disappointed because I still need to lose another 16.5 lbs to hit my 30 lb goal. But my consultant tells me that I should not be hung up on the number on the scale, because what I have lost so far is all fat. The 32.5 inches proves it. She's right because I am getting into clothes that have not fit me in 4 years. But you want to know the best part? 

I earned a command performance from my favorite crustacean, Sebastian!
