Wow! I feel so thrilled and excited and happy and relieved about being another pound down! And I know it's not all water at this point (or air LOL!)! I've been exercising and my energy level is good or even up!
I'm on Day 2 of the actual Fast 800, because for the first three days, I followed a very low-calorie liquid fast to kickstart my weight loss and also because I was required to do a water only fast for blood tests on Friday. But since then I've been on the actual Fast 800 and loving it! To see such a quick loss is so motivating and exactly what I needed to create feelings of empowerment, which I have really needed! I have not been able to access a sense of self-control, of empowerment, of will power, or of determination in so long, so to be able to refrain from overeating and compulsive eating (what I like to call Zombie eating: brain-dead eating in front of the TV, for instance), even for a day seems miraculous! I am so grateful! Having a feeling of empowerment return in one area opens the floodgates for my Self Power to activate in other areas where it was diminished. I honestly feel as though...
...I can do it!
Today, I'm going to a 4:30pm yoga class and I've got my Nutrition Strategy planned out for the day. I think I need to buy more vegetables!!! LOL I ate almost half a head of cauliflower with dinner last night--it was just over 2 cups steamed!
I've been engaged in busy work all morning, so now it's time to start the day! And I'm a bit hungry! Off to practice pranayama and meditation, then cook up a veggie-packed 2-egg omelette to accompany an apple for brekkie! Yum!
surprised it is 2020! Holy crap when did that happen!
