Day 5

Yesterday was super easy! Except for when my hubby came home from work and made a chili dog. Never in my life have I had my mouth water over a chili dog...but yesterday felt like I had a water spout attached to the roof of my tongue. I cured the cravings though by making chicken with Frank's Red Hot Sauce on it. YUM!! Franks is great because there are no carbs, sugar, and 0 calories! Yes zero!!! I love spicy stuff and Franks is perfect because its not blistering hot!

Yesterdays lunch consisted of lemon peppered shrimp I grilled on the foreman and put over top of lettuce with balsamic vinegar. Delish! I have been pounding the coffee this morning to keep my stomach filled up.

I probably won't share my weight every day...but today I am down a bit.

Down is good right?
169.2
Whoopiee!!!

Ultimately I'd like to be at around 155. For my height and age, its a very healthy weight. Being 5'10'' doesn't mean I need to weigh 180.

Stay tuned as the battle to fight off chocolate m&m's and buttery carbs continues.

Ive gotten quite a bit of grief from people already in the last day, but again, its my body right? Not that I plan to stick to a 500 calorie diet forever, but I feel this is a great way to get into the habit of portion control.

Do you ever feel really tired? I feel like I wouldn't have very much energy without eating very many calories during the day. Is the main challenge just not eating because you know you can't have it or because you're feeling hungry? I don't really know much about the diet.

155 is a good goal! MY goal is 155 and I'm 5'9. I'm still at 176 though. I'm finding it IMPOSSIBLE to lose weight after babies.

So far not really tired at all. When I sleep though its like a rock. No waking up in the middle of the night.

Eating because I can't have it is a big challenge. Its strange the things I crave that I NEVER eat! Twinkies, cookies and cream hershey bars...i also crave chips and salsa a lot but I eat that quite a bit anway. The hunger pains go away. Lots and lots of water and I drink a lot of green tea and coffee too!
