Tomorrow will be my first weigh-in, and I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of results I get. I’m hoping that my trip to Napa this weekend didn’t do too much to affect the weight loss. But even if I lose less than I would’ve, I wouldn’t change it for anything. I had a great time, and made some amazing memories.
This first week hasn’t been too tough, actually. I really haven’t been hungry at all, which was really surprising. It’s sort of hard to wrap my mind around the fact that I’m only taking in 500 calories a day, yet it’s enough fuel for my body.
The hardest part of this week has been the thought of food. Not that I’m hungry, but when I see a commercial on t.v. for a certain restaurant, I start thinking about how great it would be to eat that food. It’s more craving than hunger, I guess. In a way, I think this process is going to be good for me. Maybe I’ll finally be able to distinguish the difference between those two things. Just because a certain food sounds good doesn’t mean that I have to eat it in order to satisfy my hunger.
I also know that once I start to see the payoff of my efforts as the pounds melt away, I’ll have even more motivation to continue on with this fast. I’m fully invested and committed to this effort, and I can’t wait for all of the positive changes a large amount of weight loss will make in my life.
