Today, I start two weeks of liquids so that I can keep R. company for his two weeks. I’ve eased into it by replacing one meal with a liquid all last week, which was a week of travel. I’m really happy that I was able to stick to that even with four days on the road, long days and nights, and delayed airplanes, etc. I ate almost no sugar last week, just two oreos (oops) on the delayed flight.
I feel ready. The house is stocked with unjury chicken soup, all kinds of protein shakes, SF jello and popsicles. But most importantly, I’m not as hungry as I was before I started, thanks to easing in slowly. I want to feel in control of food, not the other way around. I’m feeling that right now.
I know the next three days will be the hardest, and I’m prepared for that. I just want to show myself that I can do this too. It doesn’t hurt that I’ve lost 3 poundss by just that meal replacement and reduced carbs.
Let’s do this!
