So I'm beginning my fifth day on this new plan. I've been doing all right with the eating part except on Thursday, Day Three, when I gave in to the call of this big piece of blueberry coffeecake that I'd made on Sunday.
Once I ate it, I felt over-full and queasy and I've got to remember that feeling. It will help me avoid doing that again.
The other thing I've noticed is a slight sense of depression. I just feel a little sad, and I catch myself having negative thoughts in which I imagine myself being ignored, neglected and disliked by my friends. I know they're not real or logical thoughts, and I know I get them every time I go on a diet. No idea what causes this, but it happens. Hard to shake, sometimes.
Well, maybe someday I'll figure out how to beat those blues. In the meantime, I'll do my best to stick with the plan.
