overall thoughts: well, i’m done. it’s over. you no longer have to look at plates of microwavable meals. to be honest, i’m pretty happy that i no longer have to be lazy with what i eat; it isn’t about reheating and eating anymore, which is great, but going forward, it is up to me to remember the lessons i’ve learned this week. though i definitely feel smaller (it’s all in my head, i know) i am looking forward to mastering my portion sizes on my own. thank goodness, the past seven days were sponsored by lifebooker and gave me the opportunity to experiment with a plan that i may not have had the opportunity to try on my own and rather than being straight-as-a-line about it, i wanted to transition into a more liveable, realistic lifestyle, post-“diet”. what i made very clear throughout the week is that i wasn’t willing to sacrifice my social life by going to brunch and even eating a 5-star restaurant at one point. i also hoped it was obvious that i wouldn’t admit to “cheating” primarily because there were no rules.
the final results of my week will be announced tomorrow.
