So I'm on Day 8 of Lyn-Genet Recita's "Plan" and all is going well. I'm feeling good and continue to lose weight, even though I don't really want to. Since Day 1, I've lost 4 pounds (and a grand total of ~12 since I started this in mid-August) . (My husband has lost over 5 lbs.) My rings are actually starting to slip off of my fingers, and I don't plan to lose any additional weight at this point. From here on in my goal is to just test the different foods and try to determine which ones don't work well for me.
I'm now able to have more enjoyable breakfasts and can actually drink wine! Woohoo! I do love wine;)
So far we've tested chicken, wild caught halibut, rye, goat cheese, and rice. None have bothered my system. And, the for the most part, the food is very enjoyable. If your'e interested, you can find pictures of many of my recent dinners here.
What I really like about eating using this system is that after I eat, I feel satiated and my stomach feels settled. I'm not bloated, my belly isn't grumbly and I don't have any indigestion. I also have been sleeping really well since I started this plan back in August.
All in all, I'm pleased so far and have received very useful feeback and input from Lyn-Genet.
As for my weight loss, tune in tomorrow to see if it stops. I sure hope so. I'm as thin as I want to be and the last thing I want is to be a gaunt older woman. At this point in my life, I can kind of use a little layer of softness to round out my increasingly angular features.
So let's hope the weight stays stable. Only time will tell...
