Third Day of Break
I am doing well and am so glad I did this.

I've been working back into eating very slowly. I drank OJ the first day and most of yesterday. I even had a lemonade at lunch time. It was strangely comforting and familiar. I had an amazing amount of energy and got so much accomplished. I made my vegetable soup last night and drank the broth. It was so good but my son said that cardboard would probably taste good to me now! I had more soup with vegetables for lunch today and will have more tonight. I'm waiting until tomorrow to add fruit and will wait a few days more to add a little bit of dairy and fish and poultry. I was disappointed after 14 days on the MC and not having any cravings or desire to eat food, to find that I'm obsessing about food. It's not so much about eating certain foods but just about eating. So I still have a lot of work to do in evaluating why I eat and what my triggers are. If I can just master the art of stopping when I'm satisfied, I'll be most of the way there. It will help too to not have anything in the kitchen that I shouldn't eat. Another key is to keep plenty of healthy foods on hand at home and work so that when I'm hungry, I have lots of options.
My main concern now is that I haven't had a BM since Thursday evening. Hopefully, now that I have some solid food in my system, things will kick in soon. I'm starting to feel some activity and have had gas but nothing productive yet. At least I'm not constipated.
