STILL feeling hungry. I don't think it's as bad though so either I'm getting numb to it or ketosis is slipping in gradually, which is not what I expected. I have had freezing feet in the evenings (and hands to a lesser extent) which I was hoping was a sign I was going into ketosis but given that June is the new winter, is not necessarily the case!
Psychologically I haven't found it as hard as physically (although I'm still amazed and impressed with myself that I resisted all those chocolate eclairs yesterday - they're my favourite sweet thing! And today there's muffins, cookies, doughnuts and cakes on our snack table and everyone had fish and chips for lunch, sigh). I had a mini revelation yesterday though; I had just left work and was feeling pretty fed up (it had not been a good day) and walking past Tesco Metro when I had a knee-jerk desire to go and treat myself (to some yummy food obviously!). I realised that my way of giving myself some care has been to eat something (undoubtedly) calorific. Clearly not a good tactic. Now I need to find some other thing to replace food with. At the moment I'm thinking a magazine or bunch of flowers (the latter of which is less available than chocolate of course!) for that instant fix.
My next milestone will be getting through the weekend - traditionally a time devoted to food! I never drank during the week (or rarely) but Friday night was G&T and wine time and possibly a takeaway, and Saturday and Sunday nights we'd have a nice meal and good bottle of wine, either with friends or just us. I'm thinking of going to the cinema (fortunately I don't suffer the mental torment over popcorn that some of the bloggees I read do) - my only concern is whether I'd last two and a bit hours without going to the loo!
