Metabolism Miracle Week 2 In Review
Day 1-3 were the hell days, Day 4-5 were the days that I craved everything and anything sweet but since then I have not craved anything. I know, you think, she craves it but she just dosen't eat it, but that is not the case. I don't even crave them. I used to sit and my desk and think about how good a pack of Skittles would be (yes I love Skittles) or how I could snack on a Hershey's bar, but now I don't even want it. Don't get me wrong, if you gave me a cookie I would be tempted but I have no desire to go out and get one for myself. You dont have to believe that, if I was reading that from someone else I would call them a liar, but its the truth for me.
That is probably the best part of all, the not craving. I have enjoyed a nice treat every night after dinner of jello or pudding and I look forward to it all day long, but it is not necessary.
You know honestly the cravings are gone and so is a lot of my appetite. I am not constantly waiting for my next meal. I have noticed that I eat my breakfast at 7, then I usually snack between 10-11 when I am hungry again, which pushed lunch back to nearly 1:30. My afternoon snack and my dinner are both small, nearly snacks themselves, but I am totally satisfied.
I have also noticed a few more things. I don't know my weight right now, I havent weighed since week one. It said don't weigh and I'm really trying hard not to. I'm sure I will break down again and weight but I feel like I'm losing weight. My clothes are fitting a little bit better, they are not baggy or anything but they are buttoning without squenching my waist off!!!! When I get out of my fat, fat pants I'll let you know. (Definition of Fat Fat pants: When your fat pants are too tight so you leave them unbuttoned, hahaha)
Now, I have some concerns. As you all know I have had a little bit of stomach trouble this week. I don't know if it is related to the diet or if it is something else. I am still liking the diet enough to give it a little bit longer and see if I still have stomach upset.
I have also noticed a little bit of a change in my fitness level. I have been working out hard since before I started this plan but in the last week it seems to be getting easier. I know that once I take a little weight off these joints things get easier, but last night I noticed a change in my breathing. I was planning on walking once around the circle, its about half a mile, and when I got to a hill I ran down. I got to the bottom and kept running, and then got to flat ground and kept running. I wasn't overly winded or gasping for air, like I had been just a few weeks ago. I ended up making it around the circle 3 times with no trouble. It felt pretty good! Is this related to the diet? I don't know but it happened at a really coincidental time!
So for me at the end of week 2 I am a fan! Still a big fan of this diet! I will continue doing it because I think it is working for me in ways that I wasn't expecting. Would I recomend it to others, absolutely! Its tough at first but after day 5 I am much better.
