emmieb's Journal, 30 March 2011

Well, well. What do you know!? I actually lost a pound in only 4 days. Maybe it's my diet and maybe it's just water weight - but I'll take it!

I'm on day 4 of this detox diet. Although I am REALLY looking forward to having a nice portion of pasta or a slice of homemade pizza (ON WHEAT CRUST, OF COURSE) - I am learning that the need for refined carbs is more psychological than physiological. And it's very difficult for me to not want to eat them all the time! But, I'm learning to change my habits and also learning that I can actually get full - and STAY full - by eating veggies, protein and fruits.

The lack of caffeine is also getting easier for me. I am finding that it, too, is more of a psychological need. I've been drinking lots of tea and lots of water and it definitely isn't the same, but it will suffice - (mostly because I know that I will be able to have a nice, tall cup of coffee this weekend!!)

Hanging in there! More than halfway through it now.
126.4 lb Lost so far: 3.6 lb.    Still to go: 6.4 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.
