It's not fair, I've been dieting 3 whole days and haven't lost a stone yet

I have to say I'm unimpressed at how much harder it is to stick to an eating plan after eating whatever I wanted for 3 or 4 weeks. Anyone would think I'd developed bad habits or something. Or that it was just more fun to eat Krispy Kremes than to eat properly.
I've been hungry again today, and bored, which gives me more time to think about being hungry... So after work I went over calories with some nut, seed & dried fruit mix. Not too bad though.
2 miles walked, no other exercise, work, housework and boredom, that's been my day. With a helping of depression on the side due to having to keep putting sunglasses on because my eye keeps going funny.
That's a medical term. I swear at one point it felt like it was flickering in time with the lights...
Food today:
Breakfast: raw carrot ginger soup
Lunch: raw Kreamy tomato gazpacho soup
Dinner: shakshouka (with homemade Italian sausage to boost the protein)
Snacks: satsuma, Greek yoghurt, flaked almonds, and some extra nuts & dried fruit

  1. Ooooh, now you've made me hungry! I love shakshouka, although I call it by the Turkish name - menemen.
    And, yes, it is hard to get back on track when there's been a period of eating 'whatever'. But don't be too hard on yourself - you've had a tough time and as things improve for the eye, it should get easier.
    Take care, and keep that stiff upper lip well exercised!
