I have just realised I think about food a lot less these days. In the first two weeks I couldn't get food out of my mind. If something would have made me quit back them it would have been the mental torment of not being able to concentrate on anything else.
Don't get me wrong, I still miss food. But the aching longing that pestered me every waking hour has dissipated. I can talk comfortably about the food I miss without hunger pangs. However, when it's something I really miss I mentally count down the days until I know I can get it.
This is the thing I need to fix. I need to replace food as the thing I look forward to with something else. I find it hard to do that. What else gives the same about of pleasure for £10 than a Chinese buffet with crispy duck, or a curry with cold beer. Ideas?
