This past week I have been trying out different Raw food recipes and Vegan recipes. Without counting a single calorie I have lost 4 pounds in 1.5 weeks! I'm very excited! I also am reminding myself NOT to weigh in more than once a week. I was actually disappointed to see only a 1 pound loss in 3 full days.. I think it's wonderful, really not a bad thing! I just need to keep going forward.
This week I have battled a panic attack, physically feeling ill..like shakes and everything from detoxing this rock bottom body! I had been vegetarian for 5 years and then in a desperate attempt to lose weight I turned to chicken. Right. That did nothing but open many doors that had been closed for a long time..like Chicken Wings.
I have admitted to myself that certain foods are triggers and I am powerless over them. I cannot control them. I am done playing with fire. I was at my heaviest weight in september this year. Went all the way up to 165. That is MORE than my 9 month pregnant body. I vow to never revisit that number ever again, even if I were to get pregnant. My 5 foot 1 inch body cannot carry around all that/this weight! I have lost about 8 pounds now and could not be happier about it!
My goal is to lose 2 more pounds by March 1st. That will put me at a loss of 10 pounds since January 2nd. Slower than I would have liked to see BUT.. I did get to enjoy a vacation in Vieques Puerto Rico for 8 days, my neices birthday and a dinner out on Valentines day. I even took 2 weeks off of everything..exercise and counting calories. So actively trying.. I could lose 10 pounds in 1 month!
