That’s great you guys!
I’m amazed at the amount of “willpower” I have had. Like when I quit smoking, I had to learn to live with my friends’ habits while kicking my own. My closest friend in the world is a chainsmoking sugarfreak. Today as we shopped, she ate FOUR candy bars! And we went to Wendy’s, home of my number one weakness: Frosties. But I’ve been feeling so good I didn’t want to screw anything up with all that sugar. So I had my salad, which, by the way, was completely satisfying.
I have NEVER lost a pound intentionally before. I have tried diets and lost it around midnight. Well, it’s past midnight tonight, and I’m nibbling on tuna salad, celery and swiss cheese, but not because I’m really hungry. I really never feel that headachey, weak–kneed, cranky hunger that I’m used to.
Okay, I’m not trying to sound like an Atkins cheerleader (especially after reading the “Debunking Atkins” thread), but there is something about it that’s working for me. I feel GOOD.
