It's been a week . . .

Yesterday I was in a hurry and stopped and got a salad with hummus and veggies on it for lunch. It was yummy. Only got through half of it and was full. Brought the other half to the office for today.
Got home from work and was hungry so I grabbed a cup of tea and an apple. perfectly satisfied after that. Go figure!
Then last night I took my Dad to dinner and ordered a salad. Finished it but didn't touch the fabulous pumpkin bread sitting in front of me. Got back to Dad's house and didn't take ONE M&M from the M&M machine sitting on the counter. Didn't touch the homemade cookies stored there on the counter. Hmmmmmm . . . ..
What could this be???? Who has come and inhabited this body of mine???
I am the biggest sweet-a-holic there is. But Dr. Fuhrman promised that if you got past the first two weeks sweet-free, you'd stop craving them. Could it be that I'm already getting there???
Who would ever, ever, think that I could go an entire week without a single piece of chocolate -- not even one hershey's kiss. Unheard of!
Made it through Thanksgiving without touching even a smidge of pie (and I baked 2 of them) or having a single piece of bread. I had lots of salads, yummy hummus, a tad of turkey and for dessert some fresh pomegranate, then tea with honey. I was full but comfortable. What a wonderful feeling!
Anyway, I'm starting to feel in-control of my cravings, and that's a terrific feeling! I've been pretty much headache free and the body aches are diminishing. (I think there's been some detox going on) This is whole new territory for me and I'm liking it!!!!
Let's just say that getting through Thanksgiving week and actually being down about a pound -- feels like quite an accomplishment!
