Well my first day of Take Off was actually ok. I think the fact that I slept until noon probably helped the fact that I didnt need as much food as I normally would when I get up at 530.
I did a lot of things to keep myself busy. Just as Teale likes to make lists, I also looove to make lists. I thought it would be a good idea to do a lot of things today so that I would get some things out of the way that I needed to do, and also take my mind off of food. Here was my list:
1. Clean everything
2. Put away summer clothes, take out winter clothes
3. Print photos on photo paper so I can hang some frames that have been sitting here since I moved
Well I accomplished 1 and 2. The cleaning was good exercise and it looks fantastic in here. The putting away of the summer clothes was also a looong task as I have a lot of clothes, and I got a good work out there, with all the bending and picking things up. It was kind of fun too, to think, hey maybe I wont even be wearing some of these clothes next summer because they will be too big!!! Granted, I will miss some of my cute summer clothes.
Didnt get around to the photos, but that can wait for another day. I dont really feel hungry either, which is good. Hopefully I will have a smooth day like this tomorrow. I am only worried that it will be hard because I will be awake for longer hours and usually get hungry more often.
But this is proof that food is just food. We can live without certain foods. I didnt have any fats, starches, dairy, or condiments today, and while a few of my meals were kind of bland without them, I am not hungry. I satisfied the most basic instinct: hunger. And its ok. Now I just need to get through Day 2. I weigh in tomorrow night so hopefully I will like the results of this 2 day Take Off.
And thanks again for those who are reading and posting comments. You have no idea how much they mean to me. I feel like I have lost some readers, not sure why, but for those of you who still read, I am so very glad because I need your support more than you probably realize sometimes!
