I should be Happy

I should be happy because today is day 10 and I have not cheated or strayed from this change once and neither has Steve. I am feeling a little down today and I am not sure why. I just can't put my finger on it. I've been thinking a lot about my mother and it just keeps coming up in conversation.

I am a little hungry because I have not made my lunch yet and it is almost 2pm. I guess I better get myself into the kitchen and see what I can whip up. Maybe that will lift my mood.

Your energy level looks very low
as to be expected
and I think thoughts of your mom are popping up as before, but without food to stuff it down and have to sit with these feelings
and it is pain
detoxing of the being
good for you...feel it and let it go
over and over
and enjoy your control over your lifestyle of eating
What happens after you introduce more whole food? Increase the amount?
Glad to know that on day 12 you were feeling better
I'm still cheering your bravery into the abyss of life change....
it is scary...but it's the same room only with the lights off for a while.... you'll triumph

Thanks Suz - yes on Tuesday it will be day 16 and we will introduce whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds. If we add dairy or meat it will be once a week if at all. I feel really good today. I can't tell you how much your support means to me. Everyday I check these comments and they delight me and really help me keep going. So thank you so much xox Kristen
