It took me 5 tries to quit smoking and one of the motivators on the final "quit" was that I NEVER EVER WANTED TO QUIT AGAIN!!!! What misery that was!
I've read a few comments here and there about people not wanting to become "afraid" of certain foods, but I have to differ on that one. I'm CERTAINLY afraid of how carbs make me feel, and of how easily they slip back into my food supply if I'm not vigilant enough.
The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
Keep it up you can do it. Just like any other addiction just say no and one day at a time.

is because I absolutely HATE carb/sugar withdrawal. I think I seriously might add it to my "why I'm doing this" board, because once I get past the initial cravings, I feel AWESOME. But getting there is awful :( Today while I was grocery shopping, I kept saying to myself "Would 199lb Jen eat that?" and "You're already going through withdrawal, and you KNOW it will get better soon, so do you really want to start the process all over again?" Oh the self pep talks!
Hope everyone is having a great start to their week!
