Day 12 (cravings)
Good morning everyone! Day 12 100% raw and Day 3 of juice fasting.
Last night I had the worst cravings I've ever had in my life. I almost broke down. I wanted Pizza (my favorite SAD food) so bad. I had the phone and credit card in my hands and was about to order. I have the # on speed dial, if that tells you something about my previous diet lol. Maybe I should take it off. Anyway, I tell you, it was a real mental battle to make myself stop. I quickly whipped up a green juice and hit rawfoodtalk for some reassurance. I get a lot of reassurance just from reading other people's successess - so thanks to those people!. I hung in there, the cravings went away and I'm really proud of myself. I think now that I've been through cravings that bad it can only get easier to deal with the next time it happens. I've also been reading a book on Juice Fasting (by Sproutman!) and that helps to keep me focused.
Today I'm feeling alright. Not as upbeat as yesterday morning and going through some more detox symptoms. I'm feeling lighter but don't really know - I'm sticking to my "no scale" routine.
Not much more to say for today. Best of luck to everyone out there battling their own personal struggles to reach their goals. When you feel "weak" and are going to cave, hit this site fast! Get your mind back on track and you will feel a lot better about yourself.
