Today was another tough day for me. I got some sleep but not enough. Tonight I will sleep like the dead. Everything started good this morning. I ate my first meal a little earlier than I anticipated. That was nothing much to worry about. Work was uneventful. I was good and hungry when I got home. I made some bacon, eggs and pan sausage. I felt confident that the diarrhea was over with and I did not plan on eating any of the pan drippings like I did last time. This is where things went wrong. A little after I ate my stomach began to rumble a bit and I had some slight cramps. It was nothing overwhelming, just more annoying. I thought to myself that I knew better than to jump into another greasy meal so soon after recovering from my bout of diarrhea yesterday. At the moment I feel OK after a few trips to the restroom. I am hoping for a more peaceful night. My stomach is still a little queasy at the moment. Just a minute ago I actually had a brief moment of wanting something sweet. I just laugh at myself and thought no way am I going to do something like that. Not after suffering these last two days. I can't believe it is almost the end of day 4. Like Teri, Denis and Dave have advised me I know that I am adjusting to the change and that weight loss is not a big concern. I really just want to level off and start to enjoy all the benefits I remembered having in the past few tries at eating zero carb. I know I will get there one day at a time. Also I am drinking more fluids to balance out my trips to the restroom. No change in my weigh in this morning. That's it for now.
