Good afternoon, folks! After a long week, the weekend is here! WOOT! My mom and I are meeting a group of our wonderful friends tonight so that will be fun.
I lost about 2 pounds this week (I have my weigh-ins on Thursday nights). Not as much as I had hoped, but considering my weekends are usually spent eating too much and all the wrong things (my obsessive compulsiveness rearing its ugly head). Yet, when I plan and pack my breakfast and lunches during the work week, I eat very well and in moderation. This weekend, so far, I am eating only healthy, good for me foods in all the right portions. I know it's only Saturday, but normally by this time, I would be up probably a few pounds between Friday morning and Saturday morning. I really have a food addiction and it is truly a day at a time. I want to be healthy and happy. If I can live with my conviction of being vegetarian for 15 years before going vegan a year + ago, I can do this too. It's all connected.
I had planned on doing only a whole foods diet , but have adapted it a bit for what I know will work for me. I will still do mostly whole foods, but will include Ezekiel Breads occassionally, Gardein products occassionally, and the cereal I eat for breakfast during the week (with raw almonds and either sliced banana or strawberries). So, not exactly all whole foods, but I think this is what is going to work for me.
