MeghanE Posted April 14, 2013 Share Posted April 14, 2013 I am on day 20 and I think I am doing well, but as I get near the end, I still feel like I might get out of control once I stop, which makes me wonder if I have been doing this whole thing right?! I have tried really hard to stick to 3 meals a day, some days I do fine, other days I have to have a snack. I try to keep it within the rules, making a mini meal including protein, fat and veggies, but sometimes I just can't stop myself from grabbing a handful of nuts or munching on some olives while cooking. Also I have attended 4 events that included appetizers and dinner, and I ate compliant appetizers... And tonight I went to my in-laws, who no matter how many times I explain it, they just don't get it... And therefore didn't have anything I could eat besides salad, so I totally devoured a larabar on the drive home because I was starving. I have noticed some good things happening, the foggy 3pm feeling is gone, i sleep better and food genuinely tastes better than it did before. I realize that I can have just as much fun at social events without drinking! But I still don't feel like I have gained any great control over my moods and emotions, which was one of my major motivators. And I feel like if I let myself "off road" I won't be able to get back on the road! Do I need more time, or will these concerns start to work themselves out in the next 10 or so days??
