Last week was Christmas week. It was never going to be easy. I did eat a lot but no more than is expected at this time of year. In fact, I’m finding that I cannot put away as much as I use to be able to.
As you can see, I have gained enough weight this week to be heavier than when I started 7 weeks ago yet my body fat percentage has still gone down a tiny tad more. I think this probably means I’m just bloated and heavy from the quantity of food. However, I’ve being thinking an awful lot about the changes I have made and the very little impact it has had on my weight-loss. I’m just fooling myself to think I can lose weight from eating meals and cooking from scratch. Whatever I do, I must end up eating the same amount of calories and maintain this weight of 30 pounds over. In a couple of weeks, I will do the Synergy Microbiome Purifying Programme and I have been planning what healthy foods I will eat when I’m on it. I keep coming back to justifying meat or some dairy etc, but simultaneously conclude that a plant-based, vegan diet is the only way to eat to assure optimum health. I’ve been going back and forth for so long, trying to cheat my way to keep tasty things included but doing so means optimum health is compromised or delayed. I think it’s time to bite the bullet and commit to an organic, plant-based, vegan diet when I start my programme, and for the indefinite future, until I’m in a place where I can safely make any new decisions. Right here, right now I’m going to commit from the 14th January for 1 year and blog about it. I’m doing it for weight-loss, I’m doing it for beauty and I’m doing it for health. I need to find out if this diet can heal all my symptoms of dis-ease. So I’m not going to blog about my weight-loss until I start my programme on the 14th January.
