so around 11:00 am my stomach started feeling better, i carefully ate a single slice of cheese, and everything was fine. by the time lunch rolled around i had the entire packet of rice and for dinner.. well 2 slices of cheese and a can of chicken soup [with fat scraped off the top and the actual chicken removed. (i know i'm crazy..its endearing..right?)]
so i told rachel about my decision to eat more, figuring she'd be like "no! eat veggies! you can totally do it!" but surprisingly she was cool, she told me that anything below 900 calories was a starvation diet, and the whole name of the game is eating as little as possible while still keeping you going. that was comforting to know, even though i still feel like a failure.
not that i didn't just tell you, but heres here's what i ate yesterday...
weigh in: 264.8
1 slice cheese 50
chicken soup 150
2 slices cheese 100
total calorie consumption: 700
i brought 200 cal or less meals to work, breakfast is a pudding cup  and a slice of cheese  possibly some cantaloupe but it's pretty old so prolly not, lunch is 200 calories of cherrios. dunno bout dinner.
hope all is well out there, and thanks to liz and peridot for your concern.
