I survived!

Postby Donna » May 13th, 2007, 7:00 pm

Today was day 2 for me. And, my family took me out to an all-u-can-eat buffet for Mother's Day. YIKES! There were all sorts of delicious-looking umentionables there.

But, I SURVIVED. I kept thinking, "well, gee - I only started yesterday so technically I'm not even in full ketosis & fat burning stage, yet...I could have some stuff and start again tomorrow."


I told myself there will always be temptations...and I'll always have excuses. If I'm going to be serious I have to stick to Day 2 and what I already started.

I also reminded myself that I wanted to be able to come here and report a GOOD day of compliance...and just knowing that you'd all be here, helped me stay on plan.

So, here I am. I had a GOOD day! I had chicken and a salad at the restaurant and I've been shakin the rest of the day.

I haven't had any hunger since beginning the plan. I did have a headache today. And, I am craving the things I saw at the restaurant that I wouldn't eat. But, I feel strong because I stayed true to my goals.

Thanks for being here so I could share!
Donna :)

Donna, you should be proud of yourself for making it through such a temptation to set aside being on the program. It is that type of attitude and forethought that will help you be a success with this program and getting to goal. Good for you on a great decision!

I have to be careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business.

Great job staying compliant. I started MF the day before Thanksgiving so had similar food temptations.

Good for you. :thumbsup: Isn't it great feeling like you are in control? It is that kind of attitude that will get you through rough spots and get you to goal.

I found that after a couple weeks my cravings were not nearly as strong. Now I can actually be around many of those temptations with a feeling that is somewhat like detatchment.

Keep on keepin on...you are doing great!

Way to go!
Remember a craving lasts anywhere from 8 - 14 minutes! You can do it!
Start date: 2-05-07

Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
