Adventures in the Lone Star State

VLCD – Day 3

Today, I worked in the temple, which meant an early morning. The shift itself was fine and I didn’t feel any hungrier than I normally do when I leave–which happened to be 1:20pm (7+ hours after we arrived). I definitely did miss my Panera Bread / 5 Guys routine today, but Diane said to keep on driving, so that’s what I did. For my super late (2:30pm) lunch — note, breakfast was at 5:15am — I had shrimp lettuce wraps, which were tasty, but a little less so than the steak ones. Then I indulged myself in a nice, long nap. After all, waking up at 4:30am warrants such actions. It was nice to have the afternoon off to just veg. Tonight, we went to a friend’s farewell party, so I had to eat dinner beforehand. It turns out that it was mostly sweets (brownies, chocolate chip bars, ice cream, etc.). Diane tells me the cookies were super yummy, which I’m sure they were.

Anyway, another friend of mine spent the last year losing 1 lb/week and successfully held to his regimen for the entire year. He lost 50+ lbs! That’s a lot of dedication because when you don’t see results fast, it’s easy to get impatient and quit. Well, overall, it was a pretty quiet Saturday. Sunday brings church and a game night with friends. I had to tell them no to dinner because of my crazy diet. Oh well, maybe next time.
