Carma's FamilyLast weekend my parents came down to Long Beach to visit. This meant quite a bit of eating out. But the I Create My Body program still helped me. Between Friday night and Sunday morning, I had gained 4 lbs. But by Friday, not only were those 4 lbs. gone … so were the remaining 1.5 I had set as my goal.

Put another way … I gained less than I could have considering how many times I ate out over the three days …. and between Monday and Friday, I lost 5.5 lbs.!

Again, I didn’t diet.

This was what I noticed over the week:

1) I had a less of a desire to binge while at a restaurant than I have had in the past. I ate sensibly and took home leftovers. Frankly, I just don’t feel right eating when I’m not hungry any more and I no longer have the “food lack” mentality I’ve had for much of my life. The wonderful tasting food will always be there … I don’t have to eat it NOW.

2) After my parents had left, I was less hungry than before. So less food satisfied me. It was like my body was trying to pull me back toward my goal, rather than just continue expanding like before.

This is what continues to blow my mind about this program. Cravings I’ve had all my life are nearly … if not completely … gone. I feel totally satisfied on less food. My former desire to eat things now because they might not be there tomorrow (because someone else will eat them) is non-existent. I now eat what I need and am satisfied.

I can’t imagine that there’s a diet pill out there that can do that!

I Create My Body is DA BOMB!
