My diet is going really well. The food cravings are completely gone. A wonderful feature of this diet is the lack of hunger. The allowed foods get a little boring, but I'm always full. My energy level has increased and I feel better physically.
Several pairs of shoes and sandles became too big and were tossed in the garbage, along with several shirts and slacks. This weekend, I discovered that I'm fitting into clothes that I haven't worn in over 6 years. Today, I reached a 6-year low for my weight.
Mike and the kids have been really supportive. No one complains about helping prepare meals and missing out on pizza. Mike regularly checks out the latest fruits and vegetables at the market to bring me a treat. He also is encouraging me to toss all my "fat" clothing when they get too loose.
I've got a long road still ahead of me, but I'm so happy with my progress.
