For the past seven weeks I've gone through some peaks and valleys physically. My energy level has on many occasions been lower than my normal state of lethargy. I assumed that my body was "adjusting" to my new way of eating. It was screaming, "What are you doing to me? Where are my little powdered sugar donuts?!? How do expect me to survive on fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins?!?! For heaven's sake stop moving around so much and sit down!!"
I like this waking up, eyes wide open (and not one thought of needing toothpicks to keep them that way) and feeling ready to do whatever needs to be done. I'm hoping this is a glimpse of what's to come and what I've heard other people talk about who have lost weight...lots of energy! Feeling good, WANTING to do things I need to do, is SO MUCH BETTER than how I used to feel--dragging myself around between naps and feedings.
