Day 23

Four days of no sugar. The mornings are hard. That’s my prime chocolate eating time and I get what feels like a desperate physical need for something sweet by 10-11am.

My headache has been worse again today – peaked at about 2pm and I was going to take a tablet, but it tailed off within an hour or so. It’s now the same kind of background headache I’ve had since day 2.

Late afternoons and evenings have been fine and my motivation is much higher then. I really need to make sure I don’t let the temporary cravings overwhelm me. As long as I focus on getting through to lunch and NOT snacking before then, everything seems to be okay for the rest of the day.

I wasn’t as tired today, and I am feeling like doing a bit of exercise, but otherwise not much else to report. Skin takes 28 days to renew (longer when you’re older), so I won’t see any big changes there (if I see any at all) for probably four weeks.

The benefit of being older and having failed so many times before is that I know two important things:

1. Nothing changes immediately
2. You have to be in it for the long haul to get the real benefits
