I have suffered through another 3 day diet - Sat, Sun and Monday. It's hardcore, but the way I have been feeling about my weight, appearance, and generally life, it was the right thing to do - a little bit of something I could control if you will.
When things get a bit chaotic, a bit stressful, I find relief in focusing on something - this time its my body. So, back to where I was - the 3 day diet. I have done this a few times, but this weekend it was intense. I was hungry and hated every minute of it.
I persevered - I always see results, so I carried on. So it was extremely disappointing at this morning's weigh in to discover I had in fact only lost 1 pound. Still a loss, I know, but after 3 days of hell, I wanted more.
The portions are meagre, the hunger is intense. Yet a pound? How can that happen? Most confused, and very frustrated.
However, still determined. What's the option here? Give up? 3 months from now, I will look back on this and thank myself for carrying on. Right now, it seems hopeless, but I have to think ahead.
So, the upshot? More of this to come:
