Days Two and Three always seem to be harder than Day One. I think that's because your body figures it's a one day thing and can last for one day, but when you continue to reduce the amount of food you eat your body says "Hey, wait a minute. There's something wrong with this picture."
I think the food journal is a big help. Writing down everything (including the two french fries I had Tuesday) really does make you stop and think about what you want to cram in your mouth. Are you really hungry? Or is it just a habit? Well as we all know, it takes twenty one days to make a habit. I only have eighteen to go!
I have been very good about putting any atm's or checks in the computer checkbook. I can actually see my desk, which is a big improvement. Used to be I worked around the huge pile of everything on it. I am working hard to make this a new habit as well.
I continue to do some small organization whenever I can. I was in the cellar with my son (he was on the treadmill) so I went into my workshop and started sorting through my screws and nails and tools and returned them to their rightful place. Not much, but it is a start and it makes me feel like I am accomplishing something. And that makes me really happy.
Hope everyone is doing well. (And staying warm!)
