not believe how much I am a carbohydrate addict. I remember
seeing the Hellers on TV and being so excited because it was
me they were talking about, my mother bought me the book,
and then I found out I was pregnant, a good thing, but the
book got put away, until recently when I ran into a friend
who had lost 57 lbs. She was on the Atkins diet, and I remembered
only been a week that my husband and I have been on the Lifespan
program, but what a difference. I have no more overwhelming
cravings for carbs. Its like I've been freed. Seriously, I
have to force myself to eat. I can't begin to express how
I feel, I just keep thinking, 'it will come back, it won't
last, the cravings will return, its all in your head' I'm
scared this won't last. I look at a carb with disdain now.
I think 'you did this to me, you have been controlling me,
now I'm controlling you.' I am an addict, but now I now the
not express what this means. I have been on this 7 days and
didn't go off it once, I wasn't even tempted to, and I look
forward to tomorrow. I remember reading in the book that after
awhile you may want to skip a meal, I laughed to myself, but
after only 7 days, I am having to encourage myself to eat.
You don't know me, but that is a miracle.
stuff about this WOE being bad for your health, being obese
is bad for your heart.
