Ok, so I started the 17 day diet on Monday. I have great support from my husband. He is always making sure I'm eating the right things and exercising. However, we live with the in-laws. And while they support me in my efforts, they pass me the potatoes and bread and make snarky comments like, "oh..oops..hahaha...you can't have those!" or "don't you wish you could have a bite of this right now?". Yeah, makes me want to just give in and say screw it all. But I haven't yet.
I made it through 2.5 days. I'm so proud of myself. However, I have had little tiny slip ups..like forgetting to drink my green tea at a couple meals, or ate a couple grapes at 8:00pm as I packed my lunch for the next day. I don't feel like a failure at all because I've done better these few days than I probably ever have on a diet.
Today, day 3, I'm ready to climb the wall for cheesy bread and chocolate.
Seriously. My toungue feels weird, like I've been sucking on a piece of metal, and I can't seem to get full even if I eat all the veggies in the world. I'm not sure if this is all part of the detox portion, but I suppose we will see how I feel tomorrow. And the day after. And the day after.
I don't want to quit because I feel like this could really work, but I also don't want to stay on something that isn't going to work. I'm giving this a week, and if I don't see results it's time to go see my Dr. because that simply means, nothing is working. Everything else I have tried has failed in some way. So this is the final test.
I'm praying that this will do great things for me and that all the "side effects" or "abnormalities" will go aways soon.
Here's to finishing day 3 and moving on to day 4 tomorrow.
