Whew, what a day! I have such a sense of accomplishment because I have worked really hard and have one my best to meet my deadline, and I’m nearly there.
One more day of efforts and I’ll be fully caught up again.
Now what I had yesterday… First of all, here’s the plan I’m following and here is the introduction post to the Mid-Year Resolution Challenge. While you look at what I’m doing, be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled to give some ideas, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). I am, however, here with you to cheer you on when you’re so skinny you will have to watch slipping through the cushions of your couch.

I ate this:
Lunch: A heeyuuge fajita platter at about 1:30 this afternoon
Dinner: Slice of new cheesecake (coming next week)[pictured: top]
Notes: So after feeding my hunger yesterday, today I’m not hungry again. That and a busy works schedule meant I ate a VAST serving of an amazing fajita plate that weighed at least a pound and cost me probably 1200 calories. Loaded with vegetables, steak and cheese, some guacamole and sour cream, I loved every bite.
Being on a low glycemic plan means my blood sugar is so stable, I never feel like I might pass out anymore.
I remember when I was eating so much wheat and sugar and I wouldn’t just feel false hunger; I would feel painful, gnawing hunger coupled with blurred vision, faintness and dizziness. That is so not cool, especially when you’re driving somewhere.
Now, thanks to being gluten-free and sugar-free for 18 days, I am only hungry the way a normal person ought to be hungry, (and it’s never painful hunger. It’s controllable). I don’t feel dizzy or flighty or irritable anymore due to not having gluten and sugar in my system.
Some days I am hungrier than others, but no more meals are due to false signals. I eat because I need to fuel my body, not a broken system fueled on sugar and gluten.
That’s worth so much more than pounds on a scale.
