Posts Tagged ‘Fried Food’

I’ve successfully went over a year mark(Sept. 1, 2010) and I’m still eating raw and keeping weight off !. I have to admit though, I do fall from the wagon and when I do it’s not a pretty site. I go on these binges for dairy, fried foods, and the only one who suffers is ME!  And as I have mentioned in earlier blogs, I started eating fish in my diet.  Not every day, maybe once or twice a week. I make sure not to overload, because of the mercury scare.

Recently, we went to my cousins wedding in Orangeville, Ontario. That’s about an hour of so outside of Toronto, and it was so beautiful. I have to admit, I’d never been to Orangeville. My family spent most of our time in the Welland, Ontario area… and traveled to Toronto and Montreal only on special occasions. But getting back to the wedding, there was more than enough beer and wine flowing, and the way my nerves were rattled from the ride up to the resort, I indulged in 1 or 2 extra glasses of wine than I should have.

When it came to dinner… I was so amazed at the service from the resort! We missed the R.S.V.P. time slot, so we weren’t able to check what kind of meal we wanted. As it turns out, that was not  a problem. The wait staff were so generous and kind in there knowledge that I was a vegetarian, that they literally bent over backwards getting me the vegetarian meals on the menu. That was very nice and thoughtful on the part of our individual server… she was really great!!!!

Then in August, we went to another wedding. This one was from Mikes side of the family and it so appreciative of my eating habits. We were able to R.S.V.P. well in advance, but there was no selection of vegetarian meal.  So, I selected the Salmon and it was a really good meal, except for the cream sauce it was served with. 😦

And when you are hungry, your stomach and your eyes take over the fight and I pretty much lose the battle everytime.!

Even though I am working out…. walking and doing my pilates, I still have to be vigilant in what and when I eat. In an effort to not be starving, I have to remember to eat healthy snacks throughout the day, and be mindful of eating as much raw food as possible at a meal.!

Even as long as I’ve been eating raw, it’s unbelievable to me that my body still craves bad foods. Seeing fried foods, cheeses and other dairy foods are toxic to me the vegetarian as well as me the human. Because these foods really do a number on my system…. but I still feel compelled to eat them regardless of any aches, pains, and backups!

It’s been a while since I’ve logged in and made a post about my eating Raw To Lose 40. As you all can guess… I didn’t really hit my goal of 144lbs. I really disappointed in myself, but I have to go on and continue to try and meet my goals.

So, in an effort to do so I have continued to work out at Pilates Classes across the country. Mike and I hit the road on June 5th heading west to visit family and friends. On the road, I managed to still do my Barley Max 3x a day. In addition to that, I did make a resolution to continue eating fresh, raw foods in my diet. For the most part, that has been the case, but  I have also cheated with fried foods, fish, and sweets!!!! But overall, I did make a hit with family who I haven’t seen since last year. They were all amazed at how much weight I had lost, because honestly, since I’ve seen them I had lost 40lbs. But there are still about 15 to 20lbs to go.

In California, Mike and I traveled to Santa Barbara to recreate my birthday lunch. And here’s the picture….. I look great!!! From last year to this year. There’s a difference in weight
