The deeper I get into P4, the more I realize that my mind and body have changed dramatically.
I can no longer overeat. Food loses "desire" from me after about the half way point.
Last night there was a huge burger in front of me with 6 ginormous onion rings.
I ate half the burger and 5 of the onion rings and was OVER stuffed. I even gave my husband my last onion ring and he looked shocked.. like "you're giving me food?" lol
I'm no longer obsessed with what my next meal will be. I think before I chose my meal. BUT if I want that ice cream or brownie, I have it.
The best thing is I'm holding at exactly 3 lbs above LDW. I refuse to do a steak day or anything this late in P4. I'm OK with 1lb over LDW. I can still fit in all the clothes comfortably, my measurements are EXACTLY the same as LD measurements. So I'm convinced that it's water/glycogen in the muscles and I am happy as clam.
I know not everyone has such a great time in P4 and I was scared to add things. But I did it slowly, laser treated wheat and popcorn. The two things that gave me issues.
I've actually learned that food isn't a tool to deal emotions or sheer boredom.
This said. I cannot wait to start Round 2 in a few weeks. I'm doing a longer P4 so I won't start the new round while TOM is here.
I'm just letting some of the people afraid of P4 to realize that P4 doesn't have to be terrifiying!
