How did I feel Week 1 -
1.) Major headache the first few days as I started to withdrawal from sugar.
2.) Few breakouts.
3.) Felt a bit lethargic first week, but not too bad.
4.) Felt hunger waning by the end of the week. I need to be careful about this and make sure that I am eating on my regular schedule.
5.) Confidence went up a little as I started to gain control.
Things I need to research/try -
1.) I need to find a substitute for my morning coffee creamer. It has to be creamy and sweet. I love starting my day with coffee, the news and emails. So I have to have my morning coffee, but want to get rid of the chemical craziness that is called CoffeeMate Creamer!!
Things I need to start/continue/stop -
1.) START - I need to make sure I don't over extend myself on the weekends. I have a lot that needs to be done in 2 days. I MUST make sure that cooking and prep time are included in my Sunday plan or I will not do them and I will be in trouble. (which I didn't do yesterday so I am in trouble!).
2.) CONTINUE - working on my eating schedule. I cannot be a free range eater. It doesn't work for me. I am not advocating this for everyone, it is just what I need to do. This week has been good with a 7am, 12pm, 4 pm and 7pm eating schedule. This includes plenty of water to make me feel full.
First Week Results -
I lost 7 pounds!! Woo Hoo!! My body typically slows down losing weight over the next 2 weeks and then hits a steady stride. So I am not going to weigh myself most of this week since I won't see big drops every day. Wish each week would be like the first, but slow and steady wins the race.
I am Alison and I am struggling with compulsive overeating disorder. I struggle with this everyday. I am hoping to use this blog as a channel for me to get out the feelings that I have been holding inside. It's time to break my addiction to food and start moving forward with my life.
