I WEIGHED myself, which is a no-no according to the It Starts with Food book. No, I didn't cheat as far as eating any unauthorized food items, but the book clearly states that it is recommended to only weigh yourself at the beginning and end of the 30 days. The program is NOT about weight loss; however, since I gave up all my sweets, I was in need of some reward.
So, before I stepped on the scale, I said silently, "As long as I haven't gained any more weight. That is a plus."
I'm proud to say that I have actually LOST 5 pounds! I hope they have found a home elsewhere--FOREVER!
As far as the food and eating goes, it is slow going. I'm eating a lot of salads, which is starting to become monotonous. I have to find something to spice it up a bit, or I'm afraid I won't be able to make 30 days let alone make this my permanent food diet.
Additionally, I've found that during this week, I need a nap in the afternoon. I only need 20 minutes to get me through the remainder of the day. Also, I feel hungry between meals. I'm hoping that will start to subside as well throughout the remainder of the days.
