I got on the scale this morning, as I have been ever since we came back to Florida and I’ve noticed a change in numbers. The scale is reading 172lbs. from 174lbs. when we returned on Tuesday. I know it’s not much, but it’s hope for me to continue eating and drinking the way I am.

Something else to help inspire me…. I was reading an article yesterday from a pile I’ve been saving to eventually get to and I ran across an article with Alicia Silverstone becoming a Vegan. The article was great; it talked about this book the actress wrote “The Kind Diet”. It’s Alicia Silverstone’s own journey to becoming a vegan and how she views meat, religion, society, and saving the planet as she continues to live a vegan lifestyle.

I read this article and it’s inspired me to read the book, and continue to better myself as a vegan.  When I first started my raw eating lifestyle, I was bound and determined to not label or categorize it. I’m not one of those people who like to be categorized with anything in my life. But as I continue on this journey, I’m noticing the walls of apprehension are coming down. I am more comfortable referring to myself as a vegan before. It’s a becoming a familiar lifestyle to me, one which I want to continue with for the foreseeable future.

I made a promise to myself, that I would eat only good raw foods. It’s been like a roller coaster ride since September 1st, 2009 when I initially made the decision. And looking at the calendar, it’s nearing my June 2nd goal date and I’m not losing anymore weight, in fact I’ve gained.

So, now it’s down to the wire to curb my spontaneous and bad eating style. Being back in Florida, I’ve been monitoring what and how much I’m eating.  My juicing is a staple two times a day and I’ve been taking my Barley Max once a day. I’m actually thinking of beefing that up to two times a day.

Since Tuesday, I’ve eaten Minestrone Soup and Salad at Olive Garden for lunch and then I made a Layered Vegetable Salad for dinner.  Wednesday I had lunch with Mike and his daughter at a pizza shop and of course I had Pizza with a twist. I asked for two slices of pizza with Onion, Broccoli, Mushrooms and NO CHEESE with a Greek Salad with NO CHEESE. s at Carrabba’s Restaurant where I had an Insalata Furilluci Salad with Grilled Eggplant, Roasted Red Bell Peppers, Olives with an Oil and Vinegar Dressing. I also ordered Rigatoni Martino with no meat and cheese (Mike and I shared that!).

Thursday I ate the left over Layered Vegetable Salad for lunch and then it was back to another Carrabba’s Restaurant where I had the Insalata Furilluci for dinner and we ordered Bruchetta for appetizers.

I have to admit, I did indulge with four pieces of bread and both evenings I had a small carafe of wine.:(
