You'all know I don't put much stock into the BMI scale. But, today I am crowing from the rooftops, my BMI moved from "obese" to "overweight", with a 1.2 lb loss! This really makes me feel good. I am 2.1 lbs from "one"derland (199.9).
Today is also the day that I can go back to real food, limited only by Paleo. I am going to make braised cabbage today (thanks to Michelle at Nom Nom Paleo, an awesome site for all food porn), which I made for the fam last week, and even the Littles of the Corn ate it with gusto! I am also looking forward to a wilted spinach dish (also make with bacon). I have been missing out on some great cooked veggies during my hCG run. Although I still love cucumbers and tomatoes, now I get to mix them together! I get to add olive oil!
No worries, I will not be getting crazy with the food. Just being able to sit and enjoy dinner with the family (such as they are) is a reward unto itself. I must be mindful of portions. I can eat all the lettuce in the world, as long as I don't go ape-goo goo with the oil and vinegar.
What a Happy Day! I get food today, breakfast tomorrow, and finally get to start exercising! I am so happy!
Is that sick or what?
