I was soooo hungry all day. My head ached from lack of sugar. I was sluggish and thick eyed. What made me just that much crankier was that my broken ribs hurt.
We went to an afternoon movie. Hubby gave himself a bag of reeses and I gave myself...wait for it.... the new lemon tart flavored sugar free gum. It was enough.
I was cranky, sore, and hungry but it was enough.
I kept telling myself it was only the third day. I reminded myself that I hate myself every time I break my diet. I also have worked out a reward system... something I really want, every week. Money is tight and these little goodies feel like the promise of luxuries. I wouldn't even get the first reward.
So, not only did the lemon gum soothe my sweet tooth until I had dinner but I felt stronger. I know its only three days, but I feel thinner and healthier already!
