Today is 12/12/12 (pretty cool to this numbers geek - yep, I love numbers and math) and the changes just keep coming for me. I look back to December 1 when I began making all my changes and I remember thinking how hard it was all going to be, but in reality it hasn't been so bad. The headaches I had (and deserved) the first few days from detoxing from caffeine and sugar have went away and not came back. The tired, sluggish lack of energy that I was experiencing has pretty much went away. Don't get me wrong, I am still waking up tired, but it is due to our being BUSY right now and not due to the foods I am eating. I love the foods I have been eating. I have been eating only vegetables, fruit, whole grains, and beans, lots of beans. We have tried quite a few new recipes and have really liked them. We have also tried some new vegetables which we like. I have only had a couple of times where I have craved something really sweet or ooey, gooey, and chocolatey but those cravings were due to lack of sleep and I don't know about you but when I am tired, I crave sweets. I ignored the cravings and reached for fruit and my cup of water. So all in all it has been a pretty good week and I was happy to see another loss on the scale this morning. I have lost another 3 pounds making it a total of 6 pounds lost so far. This is very exciting to me and I can't wait to see what the scale will say next week.
