Days 2 & 3

Sorry, I didn't post yesterday.  I have Bible Study on Wednesday nights and was too tired afterward.  So, I am happy to report I am feeling good...way better than I thought I would feel the first week.  Don't get me wrong I have been fighting a headache since Tuesday and sometimes my neck gets really sore but nothing I can stand.   Who knew even my neck liked the Diet Coke!

The eating plan is going well but it's a lot of work.  Many trips to the grocery store and lots of reading labels...and lots of prep work in the kitchen.  After this first week, I think things will get easier.  Hopefully, I'll get the hang of it. 

There are a few things I want to report so I'm going to bullet it out.  Here we go:

     *I am shocked at how good I feel.  I can feel a difference.  Like I said before I don't feel bad but I
      can tell a difference.

     *I am shocked with my lack of food cravings!!!  I figured I would be going crazy for sugar or junk
      food by now.  I'm not.  The only time I really kind of want something I can't have is when I smell
      it.  Like today I smelled a cake baking.  I wanted cake!  Then, when I walked past the smell I was

     *I am beyond shocked that I have not caved in and had a Diet Coke!!  I am proud too!  I do miss
      but not that bad.  I've drank only water since Monday night.  I did buy some herbal tea today
      and I'm looking forward to that.  I need something besides water.

     *Phase 2 stated today and ends tomorrow and will be my least favorite phase.  High protein, low
      fat, and no carbs.  I'm not a big meat eater in the first place.  But, I can manage for two days a

     *Even though I'm not craving Diet Coke I do miss the lift it gave me.  By 8:00pm I am so ready
      for bed.  The book says this will improve as your body detoxifies more and you adjust to no
      caffeine and sugar. 

     *There is soy in EVERYTHING!!!  Well, almost EVERYTHING!  My friends, soy is not good
      for you!  I actually thought it was.  I'll post more on that later but I am just shocked at
      how foods and drinks contain soy...tea, tuna, bread!  Those are just a couple that
      really surprised me.

That's all for now.  I'll be back tomorrow or Saturday with another update and I'm also going to
write about "mindless" eating.  I had a revelation about a few things today.
