So I finished my first week of Hasay (Half As Small As You) and I tell you it was not an easy task! My brother went on a trip to England and brought me back these bad boys….
Quality Streets, only the best sweeties EVER!!!! Caramel, coconut, orange, chocolate triangles, vanilla fudge, etc.. And if that wasn’t enough he also brought me back one of these…
A 1lb Dairy Milk Bar, all that milk chocolaty goodness, in it’s own shiny little wrapper. Guaranteed to make your arse at least one size bigger.
I panicked! Aaaaaaaaaaaarghh what to do? What to do? I couldn’t bring myself to throw them out, after all they survived an eight and a half hour flight across the Atlantic just for me.
So I told hubby he must ration them to me, no matter how much I foamed at the mouth and threatened him to within an inch of his life, he was not to give me anymore than my allowed amount.
I thought my diet was doomed when I rummaged through the cabinets to find the stash stumbled across my stash. I rolled around in it for a bit, sort of like a dog rolls in poop, but a lot more erotic. I sneakily treated myself to a few extra pieces of milk chocolaty goodness while laughing in a chocolate hysteria at the thought of being caught.
You know what though? Even with that little bump in the road I still managed to walk away from this week 6lbs lighter! Woooo Hooooo!
I’d say it was 8lbs, but the scale kept teetering back and forth 2lbs, probably on account of all the chocolate, so we’ll say 6lbs down.
How I did it? Calorie Counting! I stayed within 1600 to 1800 calories a day. I cut out a lot of the night time snacking I used to do and replaced it with a nice tall glass of water. I made sure I ate something for breakfast, usually a bowl of Quaker instant oatmeal (love Weight Control, Banana bread and Maple Brown Sugar flavors). Ohhh and I found this to dip my veggies in….
It’s hard to find a good dressing that doesn’t have high fructose corn syrup or MSG in it, but this one’s pretty good! I love it with cellery!!!
This is probably TMI, but I did notice I was going pee a lot more than usual, which makes me think I lost a lot of water weight. I also noticed I was extremely bitchy so I definitely think I’m an emotional eater. Anyone else notice little things like this? No? Alrighty then…
Anyway, I think the first week went rather well. Thanks Hasay!!!
