So, anyway, I have stalled on the weight loss in February and I blame February. Now that it’s March I think I will lose these final ten pounds.
I think maybe I just eat more comfort foods in winter (along with the more nutrient dense foods) and it just adds up to too many empty calories. Also, with the lack of sunshine, I have been eating eggs on occasion and salmon to try to pick up some Vitamin D, so my focus on being strictly vegan has taken a turn.
The good news is, this is a glitch and not a reversion to unhealthy eating patterns. I am not tempted to go back in any permanent way — I am tempted, instead, to carry on. I miss how much better I feel on the good stuff even though I think the exceptions also insure that I stay focused because the idea of NEVER eating a cookie or NEVER eating bacon, might be the very thing that keeps a person from even trying. At least it is bacon without nitrates and from humanely raised farms so there’s that. Maybe that’s just making excuses. I’ll consider that.
