Summing up my afternoon. Fighting off food cravings . . .

Today was a long day. It was very stressful at work. I worry about the stress interfering with the fast. The stress also makes me want to eat out of comfort. I was/am really craving crunchy things - and would have loved to sit down with a big bowl of chips and salsa.
But people are noticing my weight loss and that is keeping me going. I love getting compliments about it. My manager told me today that I'm the only person whe knows that actually is managing to really lose weight for a big event. I'm determined, though.
So, I'll try to ignore these cravings and keep on with my plan. My real hunger is very light. I had only two juices today, and that might be it. I don't think I'll have an evening one, as I am still full from my juice. The hardest part of fasting by far is mental and in breaking all the old patterns with food. The very hardest times for me are weekends, and when I get home from work. Those are the times I'm used to eating.
No noticeable detox symptoms today. I think my tiredness was more from my lack of sleep. And even that is usually worse, but I think I have increased energy from the fast, if anything. After three bms yesterday, none today. I'll see what happens before deciding whether or not to SWF again. My skin is improving slowly. I'd really like to see more improvement there. You'd think I would, after almost a month raw and now nine days of fasting. I guess it takes time. I didn't weigh myself today, which is a good thing. I can't be hoping on the scale for validation every morning. We'll see in a week. I'm totally hoping for the 130s. Crossing fingers . . .
