Six and Counting

16 Oct 2003

I'm down six pounds(!!) since Monday. And thank GOD.
I have forfeited my bike in lieu of walking everywhere
(except when I'm late). I was on the stairmaster nearly
crying last night, and I have been HUNGRY all week. And
feeding it with sauteed green beans and coffee and cereal
and coffee and diet soda and coffee and I'm so glad it's
been paying off, because it has not been easy. That
said...YES!!! When I went to the doctor last week I was
like, "Well, back to running and starving." And, maybe not
so much (especially since Ramadan is coming up...I don't
know how much excercising I'm going to have the energy
for, I've never observed this fast) but I'm happy that
something is paying off. Just when I was thinking, "Man, I
don't want to see another bottle of water. I want food." I
can't remember how long it takes for my appetite to really
start to fade...another week, I think. In the meantime, I
guess it'll be more of the same.
