Still psyched... L2

Load day 2...198.1. I'm down .7. Not sure if losing during loading is a good thing or not, but I'll take the losses where I can get them. Clearly I am still in the honeymoon phase where I am just excited to see this work and I am not yet discouraged by how hard it gets, usually on VLCD 2-5, and again around days 14-17! I hope acknowledging that out loud to myself will make it easier when it gets here.

Right now, I am trying not to get to far ahead of myself and just take it one day at a time as it shows up. So much of this is as much mental as it is physical. What have I been carrying around that it's time to let go of? What burdens am I carrying that translate into weight on my body? What isn't serving me anymore? Yes, this is a "diet," but it's so much more than that. It's an opportunity, and I really want to keep my eye on that perspective as I move through it this time.

I worked a little harder at getting more fat in today... started the day with a Hardee's sausage biscuit and hash browns. But then I got busy and didn't eat again til dinner! I had some homemade beef and bean burritos with mixed greens, tomatoes, cheese, and a whole avocado's worth of guacamole with a handful of tortilla chips. I should have started there because that part was divine! We'll see what the scale thinks about all of that tomorrow. I wish I had another avocado. I might have to see if I can find another ripe one at the store tomorrow for my last load day before the real fun begins. I'm also stepping my LDN up to the full 4.5mg dose tonight. Praying it doesn't interfere with sleep!
