Anti-Bloat Jumpstart Day 3

My only downfall on this diet is being a foodie. I think about food all day long and having to wait 4 hours between meals can feel like torture at times. I find myself constantly checking the clock and counting down the hours until I can eat my next meal. This is my least favorite part of the Flat Belly Diet. This is the first time I've seen a diet that doesn't suggest eating vegetables, at least, if hunger hits. It does allow me to eat my cucumber from the Sassy Water... all too generous...pssh!

Itty bitty decided that wake up time would be before the birds. I was not ready to get out of bed but on my priorities list, sleeping, is not one of them. After I walked the dogs I came in the house feeling more refreshed and ready to start the day.

During breakfast I had to force myself to get all my food ate. Even though I was hungry last night after eating, I didn't wake up to a growling stomach. Most mornings I wake to find that I am ravenous and ready to eat everything in sight. Not so much the past couple of mornings. Obviously what once was considered breakfast, a cup of coffee and a slice of toast with an egg, wasn't as filling or as balanced of a meal for my body as the way I am eating now.

This has been the best day so far on the Jumpstart. I ate everything according to plan and wasn't a bit feeling deprived. I think the medicine is doing it's job and I am on the path to getting better. I think my not feeling well intensified my perception of my hunger and I pretty much was acting like a man with a cold. Haha!
3 days down, 29 to go!

Wow, I will say...I don't envey you right now! I may have to eat low carb for my diabetes, but I can eat to my heart's content. I am not very good at denying myself things ;)

Carolyn - I am just happy to finally be able to say it's the last day of the Jumpstart and then I can start eating the good stuff. I've been daydreaming about the recipes I will try first.
