I made it through my first 500 calorie day. It wasn't easy. I made the mistake of going to Walmart in the middle of the afternoon. I was hungry. The sight of candy and baked goods everywhere made it worse. The other hard thing is smelling what everyone else is cooking. Tomorrow will probably be about the same. The third day it is supposed to get better. What a difference a day makes! Just yesterday I was sick of eating high calorie foods.
