Here in Richmond there are two great pizza shops, "Bottom's Up" and "Mary Angela's," and right now I would love to have a greasy, cheese pizza from MA's. Most Friday evenings I would give in and have pizza, but not tonight. Tonight it is chicken soup from Optifast..
So, instead, I'm reading blogs. I have found several blogs by folks who are also going through the Optifast program (some links are posted on the right side of this page) and they are a great source of inspiration. Seeing that other people have gone through this during the first few weeks and managed to get through it gives me hope. However, their saying that it gets easier and the cravings diminish really gives me hope. That's because, right now, I'd gnaw off my arm for that pizza!
Thank goodness for the online support, the Optifast facebook page, and a wonderful BF who is understanding and willing to put up with my madness!
