Recently in an effort to kick this sugar addiction and get more healthy (and subsequently loose weight) I have been adapting a whole/clean eating lifestyle and putting down the soda ... one by one...
It has been about 4 months since I've been preparing my mind for a change and about 3 weeks of actually making the changes.
Some days have been GREAT but others' NOT so easy... Right now I am frustrated and scared... I have that feeling of running on a moving sidewalk and gradually going backward... I feel the familiar feeling of sabotage and fear gripping me...
My main struggles are portion size, eating 5-6 times a day and also with 'indulgences'.
It is like I HAVE to have the creamy/rich dessert or have too much clean foods... Ughhhh!!!! (I will say I've made better dessert choices... though rich they have been whole and/or vegan).
* I have been drinking close to 64 ounces of water each day... But the days I don't reach the 64 ounces my body pays for it!
Basically it's been 3 weeks since I've had a soda... BUT... I feel sad, angry and discouraged.
I know changes don't always happen fast but it's like my moods are NOT stable... My body STILL feels like it's kind of whoosy and detoxing... I have only lost 6.5 pounds and I am CRAVING sugar like mad...
I was ill a couple days and, to my pleasant surprise, still tried to eat clean... :) Put it this way, I ate as clean as I could based on what I could keep down, what was available to me and managing my cravings.
Now that I'm back (to work and moving) how do I continue on this path? I am REALLY craving soda now!!! And while I desire to eat clean (still) my body feels like it's begging for huge portions of food!
Thank you so much for any advise you can give!
