I felt great this morning. I had to shower and make myself presentable today for my therapy appointment and also buy some groceries. As I was driving to take my children to school I noticed how crystal clear and in amazing focus everything looked! I took off my sunglasses and was looking at everything and thinking that I couldn't believe how good I could see! It reminded me of how good I could see after I had Lasik done in 2003! I had been noticing lately how I was squinting to see some of the signs while driving on the freeway and just thought that the Lasik was starting to wear off. So, Wow! I didn't expect to have improved vision! Another plus!

I've been really impressed at how I haven't really had any hunger. And coming from me, that is huge! Really, feeling hungry and like I'm starving all the time was a major concern for me starting this feast. I guess it's true that when you give your body all of the nutrients it needs, it doesn't need so much. That's why they say that obese people are actually starving. Because they aren't getting any nutrients, so they are hungry all the time and keep eating non nutritious food and still feel hungry because they're not getting the nutrition. You don't have a desire to overeat when you are eating foods that truly nourish you.

No hunger or cravings for ME?? That's a first! I cannot believe that it's been 8 days! I'm so proud of myself!
