SO...today is my FIRST HCG + 500 Calorie day!!! I'm almost to my full day!! I know to some, it may sound silly (to be praising myself for one day of 500 cals), but I LOVE eating!! It's my 2nd favorite thing to do alongside traveling!! They go hand in hand!!! :)
I have felt a bit hungry today, but I heard that is common. I am thinking it may be me thinking too much about not being able to eat. I didn't realize how much I liked food, until "I can't eat that" I hate to pat myself on the back too soon, but today I was presented with a few temptations....at work, someone brought in muffins. If they had been blueberry muffins, it would've been harder for me to walk past them. They were apple crumb....that made it easier :) I looked at them & thought to myself, "of course...the first day and treats!!" For all of you who don't know me so well, I LOVE anything with sugar in it!!! lol. But I didn't look at them twice & went on with my day...I ate my lunch and I enjoyed it!! I savored every bite & it was delicious. I had chicken, a tomato, a grissini (a tinsy breadstick, very thin...) and an orange! Yum!! I could eat that every day, it's the portion I have to get used to. My 2nd temptation was at home, I am starving today...really hungry! Like I said, it could just be in my head. But I come home to open the fridge & see the leftover cheesecake...and I said NO WAY am I going to ruin my day by eating a piece. That would be ridiculous! So I shut the fridge & here I am typing.. HAPPILY :)
