The book stated how easy things would be after the first 2 weeks. Ha! I still struggled - especially at the checkout with all of the candy around and with Dr Peppers staring at me! But I didn't give in (and I'm not quite sure why).
So now I'm in the middle of week 4. I have lost 18 pounds. Now mind you I didn't weigh myself just before the diet. I actually weighed myself on a friends' scale that was said to be very accurate about 3 weeks prior. The number wasn't pretty. Now between that weighing episode and when I started the diet, there is NO WAY I lost any weight!!! I was drinking at least 2, sometimes 3 bottles of DP a day and eating whatever I felt like - including fast food. That is why I put my start weight as the same from the lovely day on the accurate scale.
It has gotten a lot easier. I don't crave the junk much anymore. I would LOVE to splurge on some ice cream, but will allow myself that pleasure on Memorial Day. I have set aside that day to enjoy time with friends and good food. I'll likely be sick the next day, but that will be a good motivator to stick with eating healthy.
