So, yesterday was day 6 of the diet. I have to admit, it was the first day I didn’t do so well. First, I ate some leftover French bread pizza. Then, later in the evening I had a few Doritos and some dark chocolates (which are supposed to be allowed in Phase 2, though I’m still a week away from that.
But, in between I did well. For lunch, we went to Elevation Burger. For those who’ve never been (or never heard of it), it’s an excellent organic hamburger shop. The best thing is, they allow you to replace the buns with a big ol’ lettuce leaf.
Now, you might be thinking, “ugh.” But, I’m hear to tell you, even if I wasn’t on a diet, I might go with the lettuce wrap again. It was awesome. I actually splurged for the double patty, but before you castigate me for being dieting in name only, the second patty was a veggie patty, and it, too, was excellent. Though, I do have to wonder if I was following my diet, since the patty had carrots in it.
Anyway, we didn’t order any fries and I drank water. (Though later, I did have several glasses of lemonade, which, I’m sure, was verboten.
Later in the night, I played (and lost at) poker. There were the obligatory cheese puffs and Doritos. I was good, caving in only at the end, but even then still limiting myself.
When it was time for bed, I tested the scales and found I weighed in at 212 pounds. Sigh.
