so far, so good. I felt a tiny bit smaller today, and measured...one inch off the waist. I told myself I'd only weigh and measure every couple of weeks, but I couldn't resist! now to hide the measuring tape.
I'm doing pretty good so far with cravings or lack thereof. thank goodness. today I had a decaf americano with xylitol and stevia (vanilla stevia!), and a couple of ounces of cream. it was SO good. my sister wanted me to pick her up a coffee, so there was no way I wouldn't. I grabbed a few advantage bars, for emergency usage, and also because they go well with coffee. and only have 2 grams of (digestible) carbs each. I've had half of one. so my sort-of resolve to not use sweetners in induction fell by the wayside today, but maybe I'll go without again tomorrow. it's all accountable.
I just need to get the exercise thing more on track. I was prepared for low energy levels, and I really don't feel that bad. oh yeah, except the headache which I've had since yesterday. other than that, the mental fog is clearing, thank jebus.
now if I can just get the "steak and eggs and eggs and steak" song from family guy out of my head, I'll be set!
