I used to feel like I needed a double cheeseburger. And I’ve felt for many years that I need french fries in my life.
Now when I think of food I think of what I want. It’s a slight change of thought but when I think in terms of what I want I can not have it because I know that I do not need it.
I spent the first month of my lifestyle change attempt inside of my apartment sitting one on one with my cravings. I listened as my stomach growled and stared into space and tried to clear my mind. I felt a bit like someone in a movie going through a drug detox who has to lock themselves in a hotel room. But instead of just one weekend my detox took three.
I feel a lot better. I’m sure there are many more hurdles ahead but to me the beginning is the hard part.
