Leah_1stw30 Posted October 21, 2014 Share Posted October 21, 2014 Hi there, I'm on Day 2 of my first W30, and am starting to realize how much I was addicted to gum, snacking, and mindless/emotional eating! I'm feeling really spacey, and having trouble concentrating at work. My allergies are BRUTAL and of course my go-to when I'm feeling sick (or sad, or stressed) is to EAT - fruit, veg, chocolate, whatever. This is how I used to eat: 2 slices ezekiel bread with low sugar jam, and 1 cup of yogurt (splenda-sweetened/fruit) and 2 cups of coffee for breakfast. Lunch was usually a shake with frozen banana and blueberries (vanilla whey) and then an apple and yogurt and steamed cauliflower, then dinner was a huge salad and more ezekiel bread with low sugar jam, and then I would snack for the rest of the night on the couch. Night snacks would be whatever I happened to have: one night it could be watermelon (up to 1/2 a watermelon at a time), another night just a few apples with yogurt, another night a huge bowl of plain air-popped popcorn and some sorbet, and then even maybe a bag of black licorice. Nighttime snacking in front of the tv is a serious issue, clearly!! Here is how my last two days have shaped up: Day 1 (Oct 20th): Morning: spinbike for 30 mins, 3 glasses of water, breakfast: 3 eggs, 1/2 avocado, 1/2 yam, green tea lunch: 3 eggs, 1/2 avocado, 1/2 yam,. 2 cups steamed cauliflower afternoon: started to feel hungry around 530, as I was preparing my son's dinner, so I had a bowl of steamed green beans and baby carrots dinner:HUGE salad (mushrooms, tomatoes, cabbage, red onion, green onion, cucumber, 1 can tuna (in water), 1/5 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar), followed by 1 large banana sliced up with coconut flakes sprinkled on top. This was not super satisfying, since it was so similar to what I used to have for dinner, but it used to be followed by a lot more snacking. I felt reasonably full - not hungry, but very snacky after that. Had some chamomile tea. Day 2: slept in a bit by accident, but still managed to spin for 30 minutes, same breakfast as yesterday. At work now, and eyes are itching, lips are itching, hands are itching! Want some flavor (ie., crystal light in water, or gum) and obviously am refraining. Days seem to drag....hopeful that this will start to change? Am I in sugar withdrawal? Hoping this is the hard part..... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
