Merry Christmas - A Holiday Weight Loss :)

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

As some of you who have been reading along know, I switch to a 100% raw plant food diet a week ago. No dairy, no breads/grains... just fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts.

There had been one nagging bit of worry: how will I survive the Holiday feasting? Not only is December festive because of Christmas, we also celebrate my Dad's birthday, my son's birthday and my own.

So on Friday, I picked my parents up from the airport and they took the family out to Applebee's for dinner. I wound up ordering half an Oriental Chicken Salad minus the chicken. I felt good with myself.

On Saturday, I prepared a large finnochio (fennel) salad for lunch but dinner was at Red Lobster. It was then that I actually caved in. I ordered a 4 course meal: clam chowder, house salad, grilled shrimp skewers over a vegetable medley along with a brownie bite and ice cream. While I did enjoy the fare, I paid a hefty price for it. I had quite the upset stomach that night.

On Sunday, lunch consisted of more salad. Dinner was at a local Mediterranean restaurant. We shared an appetizer of grilled pita bread and hummus. I had ordered a grilled salmon sandwich that came with steak fries. Again, here I followed my gut and stopped eating when it reported it was full.

Christmas eve consisted of my Dad cooking his renowned meat delicacies where again I indulged myself in meat.

I will admit that I was terrified when I was getting on the scale this morning. To my grand surprise, I had dropped from 202.4 to 201.8. I am grateful for that 0.6 lb loss. Today, I am back to my raw plant food diet. Tomorrow, should be back on schedule.

199 lbs... watch out, here I come!

How have the Holiday feasts gone on your end?

    That is awesome! I'm also doing raw foods. I love it! I did eat cooked food for Christmas and felt like crap after. I'm back on the raw foods again.
