Well...week one is in the books! We had our 2nd coaching session on Thursday so we did our official weigh-in on that morning. I am down 6.4#!! However, over the last two days I have gained 1.5# and I'm not sure why that happened. I have been following our plan of four shakes, one bar, 3-5 oz of protein, 3 fats, and 4-12 veggies each day. I haven't gone over my allotted flex foods either. If I have another gain tomorrow, I am going to message my coach to see what she recommends.
For the most part I've been doing ok with the plan. The first few days were rough and I've really been missing my morning coffee. I normally drink decaf so it wasn't a caffeine thing but I've come to realize it's the ritual and mouthfeel of the coffee sweetened with stevia and the richness of the cream mixed in that I am missing. I also felt sort of icky while the gluten and other crap I ate the week before starting Profile was working it's way out of my body. I felt sort of lightheaded and off mostly in the evenings. I did find that a shot of pickle juice helped and the last four days or so have been void of those feelings. I've also been feeling a little deprived but maybe if I would have felt that more often in the past I wouldn't be sitting here looking at needing to lose 80+ pounds!!
Oh...before I forget! The body scan!! Holy cow!!! Seeing that scan was pretty eye-opening and truthfully a little bit disturbing. I'm glad I had it done and I'm looking forward to being able to compare them as I go. We will have another one at the six week mark. That is also when they will do the DNA test.
We met with Erin this week and she was really nice. When we first got on the zoom call I was a little worried because she was way too cheery. But...she calmed down and we had a good conversation. We meet with her again next week so I'll be curious to see if she starts out the same way or if it was just the nervousness of meeting someone new.
We will do the same plan this week and then starting in week three we will move to three shakes and two bars. I'll be glad for that because I like the bars much more than the shakes. I think it's because I can chew them and they seem to satisfy that urge I seem to have to eat things rather than drink them. Speaking of drinking...wine is not on this diet!! I am missing my glass of wine at night that I used to have several times a week but I just need to remember that it's not forever. I might even splurge and have a few ounces on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
