State of Mind:
Awesome. I have never accomplished so much before. I am feeling freedom for the first time in a long time from the constant circling food thought. It hits at times, but 95% of the time I am able to let those thoughts pass and continue on my day. The slips I have had are very small in the grand scheme of things, and I am growing closer and closer to a pure, abstinent juice/water fast. I am so grateful for God's helps.
I cook for 4 kids, my husband and my mother, plus a houseguest for the holidays. Cooking and cleaning the kitchen are hard, but the farther along I get, I am noticing I am getting more creative with food and am providing better meals for my family than when I was eating.
How do I know if I am experiencing deficiencies? I have had some muscle cramps which I have experienced in the past with calcium deficiency, and a glass of tonic water helped. I am taking my supplements, but what about protein? Should I increase my calcium since I have a history of deficiency which lead to head to toe muscle cramps? I am reading so much conflicting information about protein. Should I consider supplementing it or not? Is this just my head trying to get some free food???? LOL.
