Week 1 on the 21-Day Wonder Diet. Total weight lost 1.5kg.

I’ve now finished 7 days on the 21-Day Wonder Diet and here are the stats:

Total weight loss: 1.5kg

Lost 1 inch off my waist, 1 inch off my bust, and 1/2 inch off my hips

Spent approximately $250 on groceries

Favourite meal so far: Sesame Beef stirfry

Worse meal so far: Tuna and Orange salad with soy

Well, I’ve done 7 days on my 21-Day Wonder Diet and those were the results.  Not glowing…I really had hoped to lose more weight, but I weighed myself this morning and I’d actually gained 1/2 a kg, so overall, my total weightloss for a week is 1.5kg.  Still pretty good but I REALLY wanted to have lost 2.5 by the end of the first week! Oh well…a lot of people say you should judge it by your clothing, not by the scales and it is promising that I’ve lost some inches.

I don’t know why I put on half a kilo this morning, perhaps it was because I ate out last night.  We went to my favourite Vietnamese restaurant in West End and instead of ordering my usual favs, I went for San Choi Bow, savoury meat in lettuce cups.  It was very tasty and I didn’t eat anything else…so perhaps it was that…but I still feel like I made a healthy choice so I don’t feel like I fell off the wagon or anything.  I think it might’ve had something to do with portion size though…

Anyways, I’m ready to start week 2 on the diet, done the grocery shopping for 3 days so far and that cost about $80…so it looks like week two may be slightly cheaper than week one because I’ve bought a lot of the spices.

Oh yeah, despite the bran and cranberry being very convenient for me, I can’t really eat it.  Bran is wheat, and it gave me hives eating it yesterday and also gives me a stomach ache…so I can’t continue on it.  I also didn’t do today’s menu (Day 8).  It’s supposed to be a berry smoothie, a lentil, tuna and tomato salad and Crunchy chicken salad cups…but the thought of eating canned tuna in a can with springwater again makes me gag, and the chicken cups calls for celery (which I hate) so I’m skipping day 8 altogether and repeating day 2 – because I had a second serve of the chili which I’d stashed in the freezer.

Let’s see what this week will bring…
