Big FAT (literally) failure!

Fruit is Stacey’s entry # 17…my journey in becoming 100% LoFat Raw Vegan, meaning eating 80% or more of my calorie intake from carbs >10% Fat, >10% protein. Aka 80/10/10

Big FAT (literally) failure!

Day 0 (not sure how many days to go)

Ok so as you all know I have fallen of the wagon big time…! All for reasons that sound pathetic and self pitiable…(laughing with a sad face)……so this entry is not to proclaim my new fresh beginning (although I strongly wish it were), it is to write about what went wrong and my in the near future plans to correct my previous endeavors. Following is a list of what I have realized in my failures, and the solutions which I am preparing to start practicing (there is never any gain from just stating problems without trying to come up with a solution for them, in my matter or fact I know everything and you don’t voice ;)

Recognition #1 ….I am truly addicted to the SAD (standard American diet), which include but are not limited to cooked foods, salt, dairy products, and everything else that you know you should not be eating, but want to for some reason, but can’t put your finger on why….I now know why …..addiction!!!!
Solution #1…go about this diet as any other addicted person must do! 1st step, admit it! 2nd step drop your bad habit completely and immediately.

Recognition #2….I am an all or nothing type of girl (awful realizing this about myself, but unfortunately it is true in more than one aspect in my life)….I am either gung ho and tottaly entralwed or the complete opposite “F’ it all, I’m gonna do want I want now” type of attitude… So introducing even the slightest variation of the LFRV diet leads to an absolute failure in my attempts to change. So far gone off the diet that I even eat French fries, and cheese once again (what a wicked web we weave …in a sultry, sarcastic, drawn out, self defeated voice). Solution #2 re-read step #2, maybe this isn’t such a bad characteristic when it is focused on the good.

Recognition #3…real life, face to face support/motivation. When you have no one in your life who practices the same beliefs, nor do they even believe in what you are doing, that can make it very hard to continue your own practice. As a social person I like to be surrounded by people who like and do the same things as me (I am sure you do to)…so when there is no one with you, and every one against you (also while they scrutinize you) it is hard to stay on track. Solution #3 find Fruit Friends! I have a meet-up group on called “Los Angeles Fruit Friends” please join me J

Recognition #4…. short term goals=earlier pay off, and more prizes! I love to win, and I love presents (who doesn’t right) soooo with a short term goal you can be more proud of yourself, more often…doesn’t that sound just FAB! Solution #4 from now on short term goals I am thinking I will start with a week, when I begin. …crazy eyes, when will I begin??? Eek : /
