Still Proud of myself…I think

Fruit is Stacey’s entry # 16…my journey in becoming 100% LoFat Raw Vegan, meaning eating 80% or more of my calorie intake from carbs >10% Fat, >10% protein.

Still Proud of myself…I think (hesitant voice, really not sure if I’m just a big fat failure)

Day 16 11/22/09…(349 to go)

Regardless of being 85-90% all fruit, not 100% like I had planned, I am still proud of myself. I am not going to look at this as a failed attempt, just an on going one. My down falls have not been cooked food, but gourmet raw food, so that isn’t really that bad, well not as bad as eating pizza, I am still vegan (except for that one thai food experience which is the colprut of this entire landslide L).

I am proud that I haven’t had a coffee or alchoholic beverage in 22 days. I have also not eater CHEESE the love of my liiife, in 22 days. I have not eaten bread in 16 days (maybe more)…isn’t that awesome! It has always been so hard for me to let those 4 things go, and as of right now they are the least of my problems. Mind you I still do think about them from time to time, and I think of all the reasons why I should not be depriving myself of them, but alas I have stuck to my guns and have 4 things to be proud of so far in this journey….Next accomplishments, sticking to 100% 811 like I have said (meaning no cooked food, no salts. Spices, low fat, and HIGH FRUIT)

So today is wedding day…yippeee megs…my gf is gonna look so pretty, I am so excited for her and her new hubbie!!!! But dun dun duunnnnn….what am I going to eat?!!?!!!??? I am going to be there from 4pm-??? I really don’t think I can pack that much fruit.

11/21/09 meal analysis

started the day off right and with very good intentions to keep it up for the rest of the day…I ate a 2 large banana and 5oz frozen cherry smoothie, then I had 2 persimmons, a bunch of cherry tomatoes, a green salad with tabouleh on it. I went to the movies, and got popcorn …but with no butter…so I didn’t go that far, and it was a small which I shared with my friend. Soo boo I failed another day. It is so hard to get back on track once you’ve cheated….is all lost for me L…I am hoping Monday I am on the horse galloping toward the finish line.

11/21/09 Activities

House work all day, and what do you know, it doesn’t look like I did a thing!

11/21/09 Symptoms

dry mouth (too much salt) soo thirsty (also just too much salt) less energy ….all major reasons to get back on track…I don’t like feeling like this. I also don’t like the symptom called guilt. Which I have had all day long for the past 5 days…even just thinking about things I am not supposed to eat I feel bad about myself…that part of this just can’t be healthy…any suggestions on dealing with these emotions?

Thanks for reading even tho I suck now!

  1. YOu do not suck! We all have our bad days.

    And I gotta give it to you, as a fellow (ex-)cheese addict: I KNOW IT'S HARD! It's friggin brutal - especially when everyone else around you is munching on all the thing's you DON'T want to eat.

    So, stay strong and good luck!

  2. hi there, hope you are ok and update soon! =)

  3. Hi Stacey:

    I've enjoyed reading your blog. I'm in just about the same place, mentally. Have taken a few years off of trying this lifestyle and am just now shifting back to it. My blog is at: I'm going to try to get back into updating it (only one, short, recent post).

    Best of luck,

  4. Tell us what you're up to, Stace! Even if you went off the diet completely. Inquiring minds are anxious for a new post!
