1st... I just posted a giveaway HERE. Check it out!
2nd... Thanks for all of the positive feedback in the comments. I NEED that right now.
Today was tough. The cravings were hard, and the temptation is just overwhelming. Today there was CAKE in the cafeteria, and I could SMELL it. I couldn't even look at it when I walked by. I feel like a crack addict trying to detox while living in a crack house...
By the time I got off work, I had a headache and didn't feel well at all. After a short nap and a few Ibuprofen, I was ok. I had a good dinner, and I feel ok before I go to bed. I have had about 120 oz of water and a glass of unsweet tea. The only carbs I've had were in the form of iceburg lettuce, a few chunks of tomato, and a few pieces of broccoli in my lunch salad. No cheats, no soda.
Last night I mentioned that I was hungry before bed, and someone commented that I was punishing myself. I might need to clarify that I wasn't actually "hungry". I only "felt" hungry. My mind tells me one thing right now, but my body tells me something different. This is TRULY a head-game right now.
Someone also mentioned that no-carb/low-carb is unhealthy. Yeah, I used to tell myself that, too. But in the research (and I've done a lot) I've done on sugar and low-carb diets, I have learned that for some people being carb-free is okay. Honestly, I won't be carb-free forever... I just have to go through this because I NEED to be SUGAR-FREE forever. Eventually, I will be able to eat fruit, veggies and whole grains in moderation. But for now, no.
I feel like I need to REALLY detox to get on track and to get over this addiction. I have to lose over 100 lbs... I have a lot of time to adjust and tweak this plan.
Oh, did I mention that I lost 5 lbs my first day on the plan? Sure, it was water weight, but it sure felt good to see the scale move already!
