Today I showed a loss of 1.8 pounds. Woohoo! The only problem? I'm hungry.
It's not the diet's fault. I can eat all the meat, seeds, and vegetables I want. It's just that I'm totally not in the habit of eating this way. I didn't have a lot of meat as a child - we couldn't really afford it, so I'm not habituated to eating it. And I'm really, really not used to doing without grains. I've depended on those to help me feel full.
My mom is the one who led us to this way of eating, and she says that yams are what has taken the place of a filling food for her. So I've got my husband running an errand for me - he's going to go buy me some yams.
In the meantime, my son is just doing what he's told, no problems, no complaints, feeling better every day.
I'm sure I will too ... once my system acclimatizes.
