Today is day 9 of being addiction free! I can’t believe I have made it over a week with no carbs, milk, or sugar!! So proud of myself. I deserve to be healthy and feel fabulous 😀 All of the pain and withdrawl symptoms have passed and now it is just a matter of not giving in to the desire to taste something sweet and full of flour.
I got a chance to weigh myself on day 6 and was very shocked by what the scale said. I usually only weigh myself the “right” way (in the morning after I got potty before I shower or eat and naked as a blue jay) in order to give me the lowest weight of the day. On day six though it was right after I had eaten dinner and I had just drank about 4 cups of water. I was a little nervous to step on the scale!! I thought to myself as long as I don’t weigh more than when I started I think I will be ok.
Dun DUn DUN~ Even taking my weight the “wrong” way it still said I had lost 11 POUNDS!! I couldn’t believe it. After getting off the scale and going about my day I kept thinking, “All I did was stop eating sugar and carbs and I lost 11 pounds in less than a week?! Please someone remind me why I want to ever eat sugar and carbs!!”
I think once I am getting to a better health limit and it is obvious my addiction is re-broken I am going only allow myself sugar one day a week. Like only saturdays or something and other than that I am going to keep staying away from it all the rest of the week. I am also going to try to stay away from baked goods all but one day too and just eat little portions of whole wheat pasta and oatmeal and such.
I am excited to see myself in a few months when I have lost all this weight. ❤
