Life After the 3-Day Diet

Confession: I lost a total of 10 lbs.

{Celebration! Yayness all around!}

Yep, I lost a total of 10 lbs. to the dot, like the diet said I would. From 213, I am now down to 203. I feel lighter and skinnier (relax, it's just a figure of speech, haha!) and most of all I feel like I can do anything! Yup. ecstatic is the adjective that I'm looking for here. (For those new to my journey, come and visit these links: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3).

I did a bit of an experiment last night, just to see what the secret in being successful in this diet is, so I consumed a total of 1567 calories instead of the usual 1000 and I did not exercise. The logic behind this is this: I woke up this morning and I lost only a pound. Which makes my weight loss a total of 10. But given that I consumed more than the allowed calories per day of this diet, I didn't lose as much as I did in the first 2 days. I only lost 1 lb. Duh, right? This experiment further leads me to the conclusion that 1500 calories wouldn't be so bad at all and It will still let me shed more pounds - in my case - 1, and more if I exercise. This, then, would be applied during my days off from the diet which is today until tomorrow.

Thing is, given what I lost, I don't feel any urge to eat all. I'm scared that I might gain the pounds I lost back. I know, I know, starvation is not the answer so today this is what I'll be having:

Baked Stuffed Eggplant (no ham or any kind of meat)
Boca Veggie Burger Patty
A cup of vanilla ice cream
and good 'ol H20.

I'm probably going to weigh again tomorrow but I don't expect to lose any pound. I'll come back when it's time for me to do the 3-day diet once again - that's 2 days from now. Did I mention I feel great?

Keep safe everyone!


  1. Have you been sticking to this diet? If so, how much have you lost? I just started this today. Found you off of Pinterest.

    1. Hi! I stopped but have been checking what I eat often. I dropped a total of 10 lbs, and I got 3 lbs back after that. I guess that's the water weight. Goodluck on your journey. Keep up the faith in your self, you can do this. Envision yourself in your goal weight and no temptation can get to you. Haha! Good luck Jill!
