Emily has asked lots of wonderful questions in her comments and I will answer them ASAP. But I just got back from my 2 MILE RUN (ahem), actually it was 3.4 miles over all, and I am really stinky and the sweat is drying and that makes my skin itch so I need to jump in the shower.
What I really wanted to tell you was that the word "control" has been top of mind for me lately. I think I am enjoying my new found control over my body as much or even more than all the physical/mental benefits I am experiencing. And those benefits are very significant! But the control, I never felt like I had control over my cravings or my appetite.
It has been 6 weeks today that we started this program and I am in control of myself.
It's a wonderful, powerful new feeling. I love it.
