I have been to the point of almost quitting this diet plan. For the most part I am eating vegetarian, but trying to eat vegan is still very hard. Yesterday I had to take my grandmother to the doctor. I had eaten breakfast about 6:30 and it was 1:00 before we got back. I was starved. I came home and ate some beans with onions, but I had let myself get too hungry... then I ate some cereal and 2 poptarts. Well, the rest of the day was not McDougall friendly to say the least.
Today I am restarting. I KNOW God has showed me the McDougall plan is right for me, and that is why the enemy is wanting me to do any plan but this one. I bought some divided plates so I could take food with me when I go somewhere but I haven't used them yet.
I know this post sounds negative but actually I learned some lessons from all the mistakes I have made. I am really going to give it to the Lord and stay prepared at all times with the right food readily avalible. And take my lunches with me even though it is a little embarrassing.
Jubilee - I really enjoyed the quote from Hannah Whitall Smith. Thanks for sharing it.
kcwriter - What a testamony you have of healing! Yes, God has done it before and He will do it again.. I will be praying for your complete healing.
luvoatmeal - "The little foxes that spoil the vine"...I have been taking some liberties too, and even ate some chicken last night
. Not a good choice, I know. I am getting serious today. I haven't lost any weight since I started this diet because I have not been 100% commited to being a vegan.
The fruit kabobs sound good.
Mrs. Doodlepunk - Your Easter dinner sounds lovely.
Luv the lorax - hello
forlife - Glad to see you back!
My Easter plans are to go to church then go to my niece's house for dinner. She is having a family get together and I want to go and enjoy the fellowship, but I will have to take my own food. My grandsons will be coloring eggs, but they won't eat them.
Donna - I bought my grandsons Easter baskets and plastic eggs with small toys inside.
Wendy Jane - I am surprised by some of the things on the list. Got to read those labels which I am now doing.The most surprising to me was Amy's coconut soup.
Let us all remember our Lord's suffering on this Good Friday
