I do the same thing I have done for 40 years. I eat no sweets and nothing between meals. Over the years it is so much a habit that it is hardly a sacrifice anymore, so I take this time to literally weigh and measure everything for every meal, just like I did back in 1970 when I lost my weight. It's like getting back "on key" when singing a cappella. It's very good discipline rather than sacrifice.
And when I feel sorry for myself, I just remember that I am remembering Christ's long fast in the desert. I really have little to feel deprived about.
No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.
