Ten Pounds Dizzy

I have already lost 10 pounds in less than 10 days. I’m not doing this food challenge for weight-loss, but I need to lose a lot of weight. According to my height, I’m supposed to weigh anywhere between 145-170lbs. I started on January 1st at 223lbs and this morning I was 212.4lbs.

For the past 9 days, I have mainly been eating fruits, vegetables and eggs along with a high carbohydrate food such as homemade bread or white rice everyday. Even with the carb-laden foods, I’m still eating way fewer calories than I used to which is a good thing. I used to buy a candy bar several times a week at school or when I went to the store. Eating candy was a habit and it only cost $1. I was also getting into the habit of eating fast food more frequently because it was cheap and convenient. I think I eat a more varied diet now because I only eat the same fruit or vegetable for a max of two days in a row and then change to another for a couple of days.
Today was the first day back to my university classes. I didn’t plan very well and just brought a large bottle of water with 1tbs honey diluted in it and two boiled eggs. Monday classes are from 9am-1:30pm so I thought I would be at the latest by 2:30pm. I stopped by Wal-mart on the way home and I felt a little dizzy in the store. I think I went too long without carbohydrates.

Tomorrow my classes are from 8am-5pm and I’m bringing adequate provisions. Tonight I have already packed my lunch for tomorrow. Planning my food everyday is a challenge, but I’m having so much fun with this project. It feels good to have control over the foods that I eat and not the food controlling me. I also don’t feel so deprived because I know there are 33pints of green beans if I reach a point where I’m absolutely starving.
