I am happy to say I am still on track - this is day 4. I have not completely let go of sweets, but I am weaning.....Compared to where I was heading last week with days of 2500-3500 calories a day that were leading to disaster I am very pleased! I have been between 1100-1700 calories and I am eating veggies and salad again. I haven't had any bread or pasta.
I did make that diet soda cake and had two servings with sugar free cool whip because I had the available calories and I new I would be going to bed not long afterwards. Nothing was triggered and I felt in control. My cravings have not been too bad. I am drinking a lot of water. One day I even rode my bike over 6 miles- it took me 45 minutes and the temp was over 90, but I did it and it felt good.
Thanks for the encouragement a few days ago. It made a difference!
