Sorry to have my first post here be a negative one, but I joined for positive support, right?
I started SBD 3 days ago after having given up bread for nearly a week. Today has just been a constant struggle, though. I woke up and was incredibly hungry, but was going to work out and had no yogurt or low-fat cheese in the house. So, I ate 1/2 of a cheddar cheese stick and drank some water, went to work out, came home and ate the other half and then went to work. I had breakfast with a student of mine which was actually really great - eggs and turkey sausage. I had a couple of other meetings, then headed home for lunch.
Sounds okay... well, once I got home (a short walk away) I was just totally uninterested in food. I couldn't bring myself to eat a salad or anything. So I had a couple pieces of turkey and headed back to work with a tupperware dish of celery and peppers and a bit of veg dip.
So, I'm frustrated because I'm not hungry for the types of food that are allowed... but something like a big ice cream cone sounds fantastic. It's got to just be the cravings starting to fade, but because I'm hungry I just can't get it off my mind.
Another thing is that I appear to not have lost any weight after 3 full days. What gives, and how long did it take some of you go start really losing the weight?
I'm also frustrated because I seriously pulled a muscle in my shoulder this morning while working out. And now I am supposed to go to a cardio-kickboxing class tonight with some friends and am starting to get overwhelmed by all this physical activity
Is there anything I can do to get hungry?
