It is both awesome and difficult following the food plan we are following. It is awesome for all the reasons I said it was. I feel great and I look really good - my skin, etc. It is good to have parameters set on what I eat that allows me to relax. Cheeseburger? Ice cream? No. I could go on. Today, for some reason I'm "snack hungry", I just want to eat. I appreciate that we are NOT eating chips and cookies as part of our whole foods vegan plan although as a lover of chips and dip, it causes me to try to find a workaround. I'm also feeling lazy or I'd make something like new potatoes with herbs. So you see where I'm going with this - lazy and wanting to eat snacks? That's the stuff a higher pants size is made of - HA! It is good to think through things.
I am making sure I am plenty hydrated. I ate some wasabi peas and a few olives. I fantasize that maybe I'll see a pound drop off if I wait it out. I also start investigating my emotional desire to eat. It is a process. When I visualize the cholesterol melting off my veins, I feel glad I didn't eat some crazy nonsense. It will all be okay.
