They say the third week is when things get easier. I am find that my third week has been easier.
One game I play in the grocery store is, “yea I want that.” When I am walking down an aisle and I see something that doesn’t fit the diet, however I do want I say to myself, “yea I want that.” Then I move on. I am noticing that fighting my desires and cravings just cause more desires and cravings. It is a fun way of putting, “What you resist, persists,” into action. If I resist my desire for my food, it will rule me. If I only recognize that I want the food and realize that I can have it if I want the food. It then becomes a choice to move on.
There is no one but me who really cares if I am doing this diet. I am telling my friends because keeping myself honest helps. Especially during the first two weeks. However I can quit at anytime. There is nothing stopping me. I am not going to quit because I am choosing not to. I am choosing not to. It is my choice. I am at choice. That is power.
