Liquid is hard

I'm not in a blogging frame of mind, but I want to that contradictory? Anyways, I've been on the liquid diet for just over a week now. Wow, it is hard. Hard. And it has made me realized that my relationship with food is way beyond hunger issues. I can drink, and drink and have a full stomach, yet I would crave food, any food. I would want to bite on something and chew it. So, this is going to be a real challenge, but one that I'm ready to face head on.
I'm hoping for weight loss, which I've seen a little of so far. But I may not get the results I hope for, but still I'm hopeful. It's difficult to stick to just fluids, so I've snuck in some soft solids. I'm trying to work on that as much as possible. But mostly, it's the calories I'm worried about. It would be very disappointing to not get results after going through this, because really, why not just eat anything if I'm going to stay the same. I wish that question would pop up each time I'm tempted to go over the limit for anything.
Well, that was really condensed, but that's how I'm feeling. And it's just me anyways.


  1. one you need a hug! :hug: two it sounds like you're dealing with some of the same issues i've been dealing with, Head hunger. you've filled your tummy, but you're still wanting something. you're not satisfied. i do one of two things, i've tried to find health alternatives to foods i loved if at all possible. then i just try to keep busy. if i'm still jonesing for something after i've eaten my allotted calories, i'll go do something, clean something, take a walk. just anything. it's helped me a lot.

  2. Aw, thanks for the hug, Sally! Here's one back...I do try to stave the cravings thoughts, and it's easiest at work because I have no food at my disposal. The problem is mostly when I get home. It's a matter of habit really, but I'm working on it. Thanks for the advice!
