How I did it: The biggest hurdle was finding somewhere that sold fresh fruit at a reasonable price that was on my way in to work. I found a gas station/deli that cut up melons, cantalopes, and pineapples every morning. They also had grapes and berries for variety. After stopping on my way in every morning for about a month I had a pretty good rapport with the clerks and cook, and started asking if they could get in other types of fruit. I bought a few bags of dehydrated fruit that wouldn't spoil to keep in my desk as backup for the mornings I either couldn't stop or forgot. Read how I did it… 6 days ago
I have slipped a little, but not in the binge kind of way. It’s more like I ate a piece of cheese when that is one of the things I am choosing not to eat. Also ate a bite of noodles a couple of times and find that they have lost their appeal. Hold fast to the no pop, candy, ice cream, cake(unless it is vegan and more toward the gluten free side of things), no cookies (even though we have made some several times), no pie either. My daughter thinks I need to keep this on here for six months or more. Haven’t decided about that yet~ 1 week ago
and last night I was extra hungry so I ate some crackers(which is odd cause I don’t normally ever eat them). I have not lost anymore weight, but the diet change is a wonderful thing. Smoothies in the morning. Rice and Beans for lunch, and soups or veggies for supper. Still not drinking enough water, but it is slowly going up. Amazingly I have not even craved for pop(soda). Actually I don’t miss any of the stuff, but the pasta and the cheese. Okay pizza, but only when I see it. Can’t help that as I am Italian and that is the stuff I grew up on, but then so is all the desserts and sweets and I don’t miss them yet!
Thank God for changes…I am sure the weight will come off eventually! At least the weight is no longer rising. Some of the weight may be the chemo too, that is one of the side effects and I have three years on it now! 1 month ago
