So, I started taking the appetite suppressants that my doc prescribed yesterday and WOW! I had so much energy and I didn't feel ravenously hungry like I usually do. I didn't feel my blood sugar drop, I didn't get queasy, and I didn't crave carbs or sugar all day. I know these pills are for a short time and I'm a little scared of how things will be after I go off of them since they are short term, but I'm hoping at the very least my stomach will shrink some so maybe I won't be terribly hungry after going off them. Ok, so here's how I did yesterday. Oh, by the way, I had another small loss.....and it was the first time I've weighed in over a week I think. I lost .6. So, two pounds down total.
Breakfast: 1c. Kashi Oat Flakes w/ wild Blueberry Clusters, 1/2 banana, 1c. almond milk
Snack: a couple bites of trail mix (After a couple of bites I was full and gave the rest to my son)
Lunch: Arnold's multi-grain sandwich thins, 3 slices hormone and preservative free turkey, 1 slice cheddar cheese, 1c. green grapes, 1/2 c. baby carrots, 1tbsp. Newman's Own Ranch dressing (I packed this lunch for myself since I knew my friend would be feeding the kids pizza. I did not touch the pizza so that was a little victory for me)
Dinner: 1/2 whole wheat spaghetti noodles, 3/4 c. meat sauce, salad w/ 2 tbsp. Newman's Own Ranch
And that was what I ate all day....I didn't even feel like snacking at night. It was nice....although I do hope I ate enough calories b/c I do not want to set my body into starvation mode.
