I think day 1 went relatively well, not perfect though & that's O.K. by me. I took the kids to a fall festival at our preschool's church. The kids had a blast. The dinner was a pig pickin' and the dinner plate came with pork, baked beans, coleslaw, hush puppies. I ate the pork with half of the coleslaw. The coleslaw was so NOT FT friendly as it contained carrots & definitely sugar. It was so sweet. Since this is a lifestyle & not a quick fix I was O.K. with eating some coleslaw. I rejoiced in the fact that I didn't consume hush puppies, baked beans, sweet tea, or any of the many delicious looking sweet treats common at every church function.
Then I came home and made these delicious FT approved belly good sweet treat. I did taste a little while I was making them. Then after they cooled I only ate one. I couldn't believe it was relatively easy to eat just one. Maybe there is something to this sugar is addictive thing. If they had contained sugar I would have probably eaten them all. Really.
It was REALLY DIFFICULT not to snack last night, but I didn't. Yay! Woo-hoo! Like Rosalie says you have to want weight loss really bad. I wanted to stick with the plan more than I wanted to snack.
I'm actually excited about the fast track. I love that I can choose from a list of food...no tracking required. I'm really not sure how long I'll do FT. I decided, instead of binging, if I'm really craving something I'll have it & just make sure I don't go over a s/c value of 5/2 for the meal.
Here's a video of the cutest little ballerina at fall festival, so happens to be my littlest one :).
