It’s Day 3 of IP and I have to say that the weirdest thing is that I haven’t been hungry AT ALL and I’m following the protocol without fail. More than not being hungry, I find myself not thinking about food. I’m the type of person that thinks of “future food.” What does that mean? It means that I can be eating and at the same time thinking of what I’ll be eating NEXT. Much like a heroin addict doesn’t have the needle out of her arm and she’s focused on her next fix. Ice cream was my next fix. If I wasn’t physically hungry — which I probably haven’t been since 1978 — I was mentally hungry.
I spent most of yesterday visiting my daughter and what I didn’t think obsess about was food. We were window shopping and laughing and just enjoying our time together. I wasn’t physically or mentally hungry at all.
This morning I woke up after a not so hot night of sleep and I didn’t want to run into the kitchen and make 4 slices of toast or eat 4 packages of oatmeal or an obnoxiously large bowl of sugary cereal. I know it’s still early and I have plenty of time to make some mistakes but I’m going to savor joyous moments as they arise.
Losing weight is such a battle and not every victory happens on a scale.
