And the amazing thing????? It's working. Last week I dropped 2.5 pounds. I'm tickled with that. But I'm still in that 5 pound hellish range that I've been in for the last umpteen months. (yeah yeah yeah yeah....I was at the very tip top of that 5 pound range the other week) I will feel better when I acually get OUT of that 5 pound vortex and prove to myself and the world (Ha...like the world cares) that I have totally overcome it!
Have I made sacrifices the last week and a half? Absolutely! Has it been a huge issue? NO. I've been full and satisfied. My mind tells me I want something else. But I find that I really don't need it and I'm just fine without it. I will say this.....eating smaller portions...I am actually hungry by the time my next meal rolls around! Sadly, this was NOT a common occurrence in recent months.
