Decided to do liquids today

I had a busy weekend of eating out and... beers and margaritas. Nothing horrible, but empty calories nonetheless. The beer certainly makes me retain fluid, so I'm drinking a lot of water today to try to flush that and the two-pound gain I got as a result of all my "fun."

Yesterday I just really didn't eat. I went out with my old boss and had a salad with goat cheese, carmelized red peppers, and 3-4 ounces of grilled salmon, and that was all I ate. I just wasn't hungry due to the issue the other day with DH. When I went to school I took a protein drink and that was all I had all day.

So today I decided to get my mind back into weight loss mode and do liquids. So... let's see how it does for me.

It also doesn't help that I'm sitting on pins and needles, waiting to hear about a job I interviewed for last Thursday. They said I'd hear something this week, but of course the later it gets into the week the more I worry that I'm waiting for a letter instead of a call, ya know? :(


  1. I was thinking about you the other day as I was driving. You are in such a tough situation, and yet it is so much like my boyfriends. He will be turning 43 this year. All I can say is that he was scared to leave...scared to "start over" in his 40's. Scared of hurting anyone. But he has discovered what life can really be like. I am sorry that you are stuck this way.

    As for the liquid diet...that helps me get back on track usually. I feel better after doing it for a day or two.


  2. First of all good luck on the job. I know what you mean though with those stupid dreaded letters.

    Liquids are no fun but sometimes it's the best way to get back on track. I did that recently too.. It helped me to realize I needed a fill lol. So in I go.

  3. Thanks for your kind words, y'all. I always seem to do pretty good on liquids, and this time did not disappoint -- 3.5 pounds gone! New low of 233!

    Still hoping for a phone call today. If I don't get a letter, that is... lol
