Yesterday was trying. Mentally speaking, it was trying for me.
I had a headache most of the day yesterday too. I was just starting to think that the diet was going to be too much, I mean if I have to walk around with killer headaches it wasn’t worth it. Then I got to thinking: I wonder if this is a lack of caffeine headache. I haven’t had any coffee as I don’t like it black. So I went to GNC and bought some Stevia, came home made a cup and viola! No more headache. Duh! I still don’t like coffee with just Stevia in it, but it made it tolerable enough to drink, so at least I can control the headache with no fear of drinking too much coffee! (Maybe I will finally kick my caffeine addiction on this diet too!)
My mind was playing tricks on me all day long yesterday, big time! I wanted to eat everything in sight. Not because I was hungry, I wasn’t. I think it was just my mind playing tricks on me. Like, since I “can’t” have it, I all of a sudden wanted it really bad. I knew it was ridiculous, because I was wanting things that I never cared about before starting the VLCD.
I do that kind of thing though. For example: I will loan my van to someone because I have no where to go, but then after it is gone I will think of a million and one things I all of a sudden NEED to go do. Total silliness!
Piece of advice for you: Do a big grocery shopping for your family and yourself on your loading days so you don’t have to go out on the second day of VLCD and see all the things you “can’t” have.
Long and short of it is: I made it through the day without cheating. I stepped on the scale this morning and was so glad I didn’t give in to my silliness. BUT yesterday was a little mentally challenging. This morning’s weigh in made it worth it though!!!
