What am I feeling:
I woke up feeling AWESOME! I am starting to see the energy results others have talked about. Strange how that one night made the difference.

Today was difficult because I had meetings all day (from breakfast until late afternoon) out of town. I put the soup in the crockpot this morning to have supper ready when I would drag myself in (which didn't happen, I was still energized!). I drank my smoothie during the hour drive. When I arrived at the conference area there was a breakfast before the meetings began. I passed up all the bagels and pastries and chose to have a bit more fruit and a bottle of water. I packed my lunch and was happy to have that instead of the roasted pork, chili, chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes, green beans, pasta salad, coleslaw and sugary desserts! I could NOT believe all the starchyness! I truly enjoyed my lunch.

I struggled getting all my water in due to not wanting to run to the bathroom every 10 seconds during the meetings. I was the only one who visited the bathroom in between every meeting. :-)

I have to say I am not disappointed with the food I am eating. I have had such a variety and it is very filling. I have had to eat the sweet potatoes, lentils and rice every day because those help me feel satisfied and I think help me keep from having bread/carb withdraw. I have not seen any weight loss and I have done some further research. I am consuming too many lentils and rice. SPPP website says "1-2 servings of lentils or 1 serving of wild or brown rice per day". BIG OOPS!! I will cut back but it will be hard! I know it is only day 4 so I may just be too anxious about the weight but I need to keep checking. I also haven't started working out but that will start tonight!
