Well, it’s day seven of no sweets and it’s not going so great.
Don’t get me wrong…I haven’t had any desserts or sweets since last Wednesday night, but it’s been causing all kinds of havoc in my eating none the less. argh.
Last weekend I found myself eating bites of pasta and pizza so much that I was up on Monday, but a bit. It’s like there is this craving that I’m not allowing myself to satisfy so I’m filling up on everything else hoping for it to go away.
Frustrating and weird all at the same time. I did not expect this to happen at all.
So, I’m doing some thinking and asking questions of my weigh-loss journey peers (the pros who have maintained their weight losses for a while now) to decide whether or not I’ll be continuing this for a whole month.
I don’t want to back out of a commitment, but I also don’t want this no-sweets thing to backfire on my efforts. I was losing in December (prior to 5.5 gain week) and still having one treat a day, because I fit it into my calorie budget. So, this is frustrating me.
Anyway, that’s where that lovely idea is right now. I’ll be sticking to it until further notice and I’ll keep you posted on what I learn in the process. Fun or not. 🙂
