Day 3 almost done.
Day three almost over and things are good. A little temptation but nothing major.

Well it's only 6:30 p.m. but I'd say my day is pretty much done. I have done well today. I still have one more lemonade to drink and then my tea.
No real detox symptoms and I haven't even been too sluggish today. I also moved past some temptations today with little problem although I notice the food thoughts are coming up more often. I already hear a little voice starting the doubts and deals. "30 days is too long." "How are you going to entertain this weekend when you're not eating?" "It's too hard." "Maybe I should quit and just start raw."
The last one is really funny because I've used that in the past with good intentions but I end up back on the SAD. I promised myself that I wouldn't make any deals with myself like that unless there are some serious reasons. One I can think of right now is if my teeth keep hurting. I have a couple of teeth that are really sensitive and were bothering me on and off before I started the MC. I try to rinse my mouth after every lemonade so I'm hoping they don't get worse.
If they do then I'm determined to move to 100% raw without any dipping into SAD.
Anyway, I'm feeling pretty good at this point and hoping I can go the whole 30 days. My minimum is 14 days. Seeing as I've never gotten past 7 days, 14 would be pretty good for me. But I feel 30 is really needed to boost my confidence and help me transition to a raw lifestyle.
And boy am I getting excited again about raw. I have 3 new books arriving in the mail soon with tons of raw recipes and I've subscribed to the Raw Vegan Channel. I just love how Storm and Jingee are making half hour raw kitchen shows available. I watched 2 of them today and am anxious to try the recipes.
Well, I've been pretty wordy today. Before I stop though I wanted to mention that my weight when starting on Tuesday was 125 lbs. I'm down to 123 lbs. However, I don't think the scale is a good indicator of fat loss. Between water retention/loss as well as the fat to muscle ratio, the scale seems a poor indication of how one looks.
For instance, I weigh 123 now at 5'1". On most charts I'm listed within the normal, healthy weight range. However, I've been so lazy this past year that most of my lean muscle has been replaced by fat. So while my weight has not fluctuated much in a year, I am bigger and rounder than I was before.
So I am noting my weight just to see where I will be after 30 days, but I put much more emphasis on inch loss and how clothes fit. And most of all I know any weight loss I might experience will only matter if I continue with a healthy diet afterwards.
