Cravings are still bugging me and at times have my mind wandering to contemplate things I could eat, but again today, I just filled up on the veggie blend. I was disappointed by the scale this morning, which made me think I had had too much yesterday, even if it was just 250 over my goal? I just don't know. I am trying to stay at or below 1500 most days except if I need to just eat something to get over cravings. It's not that I'm feeling hungry in those moments, it's kind of just a distraction. But still better than caving, I think. For now, I will just acknowledge and observe that I have certain cravings. That's okay. I'll consider it part of my detox. With time they will go away.
On this diet, principally my goals to motivate me initially were to (a) stop the binge / restrict cycle and find a healthy way of eating that is sustainable and (b) lose weight. Binging on processed crap is in opposition to both of those goals. So, even when I'm feeling that progress on (b) is too slow, I still have (a) to focus on and on that front every single day that I stick to this diet and help cement my new habits are a win.
