All-fruit. Losing weight. Feeling happy. 18 y
Day 3 and I've unexpectedly lost weight. Beautiful day outside and I'm feeling pretty good today.
Well color me surprised. I lost 5 pounds. Lately I havenít been weighing myself obesssively like Iíve done for years now. Iíd just gotten to the point that I didnít even want to know anymore :(
But a few days ago, prior to switching to all-fruit I weighed in at 165. My weight had been around that for a while. It had gotten over 170, and after a couple days of fasting a few months ago, I got it back down pretty stable at 165. The idea, back then was to go until I hit my goal, but of course that didnít work out. But it was like, 3-4 days of fasting, and then my body seemed to settle ... read more
annnnd...day 2 18 y
Slowly, surely, and it could definitely be worse! Kind of proud of myself for sticking with it for even just 2 days so far.
Day 2 of fruitarian. Not quite on-track and feeling great yet. I had TWO coffees today. So thatís gonna have to stop. I was so hungry and the coffee curbs that so well. I woke up late and had to get some reading done for class, so didnít feel like washing and cutting any fruit. So I ate handfuls of raisins. Then on my way to the library after class, I was really really hungry. I was tempted to break my thingy here and go for some deep fried cauliflower at a nearby seafood restaurant that has the BEST side dishes (since I obviously donít eat the fish), but abstained from it all. So ... read more
Waited to post again until I actually started... 18 y
Getting started on the fruit, finally. A couple days late, but I'm trying to take it easy so I don't get frustrated.
I didnít start when Iíd originally planned. My boyfriend and I are both far too into food to be helpful to each other with that stuff, and I think I wasnít QUITE ready. He was over here this weekend, so we indulged a little. Weekends are always hard for me too. Iím not saying those are good excuses, but itís why I didnít start as planned.
So todayís my first day on fruit. I have eaten some pistachios and a banana so far. Not remotely hungry right now. Actually, I feel kind of bad about starting out with the nuts, when I should have started with an apple or something. I probably sh ... read more
Tomorrow I'm all-fruit... 18 y
Tomorrow starts my 2-4 week fruitarianism, after which I'll be moving toward raw vegan. I want to be healthy, youthful, happy, and thin again!!
Well, letís see.
Iíve been a vegetarian for 2 years. I do it for ethical, as well as health reasons, but the health thing hasnít been playing out like it should be. I still eat total crap, even though I donít really want to!
I canít say that a lot of my motivation to go fruitarian to start my little journey into raw veganism isnít from a desire to lose some weight. Iím 5í8Ē and about 165-170 pounds. I need to lose at least 25, but preferably about 40 pounds. Iíve yo-yo dieted (ie: alternately starved and binged--no purging though!) for years. I used to compete in pageants, and let ... read more
