I started the Cambridge Weight Plan diet yesterday!
And you know what? So far I’m doing ok.
I had a chocolate shake for breakfast – it wasn’t too bad. I think it would have tasted better if I hadn’t brushed my teeth right before making/drinking it.
A consultant from CWP rang me to check I was ok – she asked if I’d started the diet that day, she wanted to know how it was going and asked if I was drinking lots of water. She also reminded me not to cheat!
I had leek and potato soup for lunch. Bit watery – but edible. And I had mushroom soup for dinner. Not bad tasting at all.
I was feeling slightly headachey in the evening. I think it was due to a combination of things though… Like being stuck in traffic for an hour with two screaming children. And Vin has this new ‘thing’ where he just completely ignores any instruction or anything I ask of him (more about this later).
All the shakes and soups have to be made with 227 ml of water. Plus I have to drink at least 2.5 litres of water a day. I spent most of yesterday peeing.
Now it’s day 2. I had a vanilla shake for breakfast. It was pretty good.
A consultant rang again this morning to check up on me. It’s quite nice actually – very supportive.
I’ve just had a shake for lunch as well. I’m having lunch a little later than usual today (I’d tell you why, but it’s about not having power and the water not being cold enough to make a shake with and it’s such a boring reason), but I was getting so hungry I was about to eat one of the kids. Or the dog. The shake I had was ‘fruits of the forest’. It was pretty good!
I’m still trying to work my way through my bottles of water for the day.
I will keep reminding myself…
Mind over matter.
