P4 - First Starch! 137.2 (.4 below LIW!)

I had to eat "on the run" last night... and was soooo hungry. I stopped at the BP gas station on the way to take my daughter to dance & got a slice of the "Hunts Brothers" Pizza. I hadn't planned on adding in a starch yet, but it is what it is and I was seriously starving!

I knew I would be up this morning... just knew it. I stepped on the scale prepared for the worst and had to step back on the scale because I couldn't believe my eyes! 137.2 both times! How could this be?

I looked up the nutritional info on the pizza I had and was astonished. 54 grams of carbs!? WHOA. Amazing. But I'm going to be careful and not push my luck. Nice to know that I can possibly eat "normal" and in moderation have these things and not gain!

Granted, I made the mug cake for breakfast and that and the pizza slice were the only things I ate yesterday. But it is possible to enjoy a starch in moderation and to me, it was heavenly! =D

P4 - Maintenance Phase - Here we are! 138.0 lbs -- (.4 up from LIW)

I really started "P4" yesterday, but have yet to add in a starch. I must say, I'm paranoid because I ended up doing back to back steak days early this week! BTW... don't do that. The second one hardly made a difference. ;)

You definitely find out what causes a gain in P3! I'll be staying away from as much of that as possible in P4! I'll possibly add in a starch this weekend, but for now, I am having the Mug Cake for breakfast, skipping lunch, and then scrambled eggs with spinach, cheese, etc. for dinner.

I have planned my next round! Loading days will be Sat. & Sun. Jan. 16th & 17th - my birthday weekend ;) My goal for the next round - 125 lbs, so I can stabilize under 130. I just want to be a hot mama in a bikini for swimsuit season! =D
