TriciaB57 Posted June 3, 2018 Share Posted June 3, 2018 I'm on Day 30. I have had a 30-day headache and 30 days of debilitating hunger. I've never followed the rules so perfectly on any diet in my life. Yes, diet, if I can't eat what I want, when I want it and in whatever quantities I want, I don't bother with the semantics of saying "it's a lifestyle change". There's no way I can sustain this for the long term. I did the best I could planning and prepping and cooking and having food available. But it's like when you have the flu - you could be starving but nothing appeals. That's how I feel about this. If the scale tomorrow doesn't show SIGNIFICANT weight loss in exchange for the pain I've been living with, I'm going to the grocery store for cake and ice cream. Speaking of which, my sugars have never been in such a sustained healthy range since I was diagnosed with diabetes 10 years ago. I'm actually looking forward to my next A1C test. So....it's not all bad! :-) I wanted to do this twice a year just to keep things in check but, its like doing a colonoscopy prep: once you've done it once, you never want to subject yourself to it again. If I do have good numbers tomorrow, however, continuing the colonoscopy analogy, it may be worth it if it keeps me healthy and on track. We'll see - lots of pressure on the scale tomorrow - no pun intended! Tricia Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
