2 cupcakes (chocolate & mint cookies & cream)

2 Pancakes

2 eggs over-easy

2.5 turkey sausage links

3 slices of cheese pizza

sounds like a good, satisfying cheat. this is my sixth week on slow carb. I opted out of my cheat day last saturday, because I felt it was too negatively affecting my progress. Here's a sample of one of my cheat days though, and its pretty extreme (mind you I'm a 124 pound girl).

1/4-1/2 cup of peanut butter

8 oreos

6 peanut butter patties

4 thin mints

4 lemonade cookies

a chocolate donut

peanut butter m & m's

fries and mint chocolate chip ice cream

shamrock shake

puppy chow

popcorn

ring pop

diet coke

twizzlers

mushroom melt sandwich from potbellies

yeah I kind of lose control on cheat days, so I am sticking to carb refeeds from now on. I don't like how I feel and look after cheat days : (

    Gee, Mags, do you like peanut butter? LOL! So do I! BTW, I told my son and hubby about puppy chow and we HAD to run out and make it immediately! Lucky I get to binge tomorrow. I did taste it and it's very good!

    Puppy Chow? Really? Am I missing something here...? Not that I am judging just super curious!

Before I started the SCD, I was a fast-food junkie. I avoided it on my first cheat day, but by #2, I had McDonald's breakfast, Wendy's for lunch, and Round Table pizza for dinner. I paid for it the next day, not so much with weight gain, but with this carb and bad fat hangover. Tired all day long. But it was worth it!

Oh my sweet God!

In addition to my slow-carb breakfast (half carton egg whites stirfried with cabbage), coffee with cinnaomn, yerba mate tea with lemon and grapefruit juice, I had:

- About 1/4 cup of almond butter

- order of onion rings

- Samosa

- 2 pieces french loaf

- 1 bowl garden salad with dressing

- Firecracker Shrimp Penne

- 2 pints of cider, 2 rum and diets, 1 brain hemorrage shot, and coffee with tequila rose (I know, right?)

- 2 pieces of chocolate cake, followed by god knows how much additional icing

- a quarter box of Mary's crackers

I know we are allowed to eat entire pizza's and drink entire kegs - but, seriously, seriously, this has got to be killing me one Saturday at a time.

Mentally, though, how awesome! It's the first time in years that I don't feel guilty about eating.

My hubby and I had our first cheat today today after losing 6 pounds on the first week.

Started out with my low carb breakfast

Midmorning - sausage gravy and biscuit and cranberry juice, 1/2 bag of whoppers

midafternoon - 2 slices of pizza, chocolate cake and milk, rest of the bag of whoppers

evening - chocolate shake

Yikes! this scares me but it was fun to eat what I wanted without remorse. I will start again tomorrow on our regular routine and not weight for a day or two I think.....I'll let you know how it goes. My husband loaded up on pancakes and then wasn't even hungry until supper....

To say I was awful? Complete understatement. If it moved and had sugar on it, I ate the damn thing. Cheat day weight gain the next morning: 6 pounds.

Here's hoping a lot of that goes away as I'm officially now 1.5 pounds up from starting the diet last Monday.

I do see how the lifestyle change would work with this. I'm excited and it's a welcome change from my Weight Watchers cult where I'm been ineffectively living for the last couple years.

Go team.

    Most people find that they have lost any extra gains after a few days. Did you do any of the cheat day damage limitation exercises listed in the book? Not essential but does help, well, limit the damage, lol!

-2 slices pizza

-a shit ton of homemade banana pudding

-6 glasses of cabernet

-1/2 cup of raspberries

-3 passion fruits

Here is what I had last Saturday....

6 bananas

1 gallon chocolate milk

2 jack in the box double cheeseburgers

1 large order of cheese sticks

1 large order of hashbrown sticks

2 large coca colas

1 large bag of tapatio doritos

4 Irish death ales

2 large orders of cajun chicken pasta

1 half loaf of garlic bread

That is a pretty average Saturday for me. Sometimes I eat even more just to push the limit.

I have been doing this for 9 months now and have lost 40 pounds and 6 inches from my waist measurement!!! So Awesome!
