Sleeping late was a wonderful treat and since I fell asleep last night before 9:00 pm it wasn’t due to staying up too late. However, I paid a hefty price in fullness. My meals had to be even closer than usual to avoid an 8pm dinner, so I was stuffed all day. I learned that smoothies were a poor choice in terms of fullness because the food is already filling and with the constant water intake on top of that, a big smoothie is a bit too much. I was NOT hungry for my snack but forced myself to eat it anyhow;likewise by lunch I was still not hungry. I trimmed down my original plan of a salad with greens, beets, and walnuts plus a bean soup… to just a salad with greens and beans that incorporated the fat into the salad. I even chopped the greens extremely fine to be less bulky. (Although in retrospect the chopping seems silly because it’s still the same amount!) Even so… I was still stuffed by afternoon snack and also falling behind in water consumption. I had some fennel tea to aid with digestion. Finally by dinner I did have a bit more of an appetite.
It’s the last day of week 2 and I feel no thinner. Tomorrow I will weigh again.
