Day 2 was harder. I was sooo hungry in the afternoon, it was hard to focus / concentrate / avoid crying. I kept pushing myself to wait on my one snack per day because the reccomendation is to wait as long as you can, and I know the evenings are the hardest for me. My goal was to make it to 4:00. I made it only to 3:00 – and that was with a lot of consternation and getting up to go talk to friends to distract me. But then I successfully waited until 6:15 PM to eat dinner! And then there was a bit of comedy when my veggie patty crumbled on the way to the toaster and I shook the toaster to get it out. Yea, classy. But I got most of it, thank goodness!
Which was eaten at my desk at work because I am cool like that. I am proud of myself for not eating after working – almost assuredly if I have to work late (tonight was until 8:45 PM) I “reward” myself with crappy food – a signal to my mind and body that it can relax. I had to force myself to relax without doing that. Which sucked, but I did it.
Most helpful part of the day was an e-mail from a friend who is also on Day 2 comiserating with how much we would like some celery. Having someone as miserable as me and surviving was good.
