Day 2 of the Evil Soup Diet

Today is veggie day and I'm doing OKAY. I had carrots and cucumbers for breakfast and snack with green tea. I had salad for lunch with balsamic vinegar and just a smidge of olive oil (don't think the olive oil is permitted but oh well), I enjoy salad. But I still can't get the soup down very well. Mike R brought me his version of the soup since he's doing the diet as well but I still don't like it very much. Don't know what it is --can't pinpoint anything in particular besides the fact that I just really struggle with cooked veggies.

Tonight for supper, I am looking forward to having a large baked potato with butter. This is the only day that potato is permitted and I never thought I would ever be so excited about it! And of course I need to have the soup too. No soup and the diet won't work I guess so I gotta force a bowl of it down.

As of this morning, if my scales are accurate, I lost 2 pounds.

Tonight I plan to do some scrapbooking, hoping to keep myself busy so I can stop thinking of all the things I CAN'T eat. I had a headache last night and a little bit today. Nothing serious but I think it might be the sugar/carb withdrawals.

Tomorrow should be a better day - I HOPE - since I'm allowed to have fruit again.

I think you're doing quite well, I'd probably end up cheating a lot more then a little bit of olive oil. Congrats on the 2lbs.

I know 2 people who lost at least 15 lbs each on a soup diet. It`s probably the same one. Good Luck.
