I've gone back up 2 pounds - which, frankly, I expected. Haven't had the ticker updated yet. I'm heading into the two week experience that is my TOM, so that will also affect it.
The meal at the restaurant went very well. I had the tofu dish falconcy had recommended (and the chef as well), and was so full I couldn't eat anymore - although I desired a taste of sweetness. No alcohol, and some bits of cheese from a cheese plate - as well as grapes. Then we went dancing, and I was wearing an outfit I haven't worn for 5 years...it was great. My dancing pants.
Saturday I ate breakfast and was full till 2pm, when I hit a low pretty badly and so we went out for Mexican. I could barely get through half of my plate at the Mexican restaurant. The meat combination (beef and pork) bothered my stomach so much that I only had a piece of toast with butter that evening - and some tea.
Sunday, I decided to have people over and use the massive amounts of veggies I had in the house - I couldn't possibly eat them all. So, we had a salad buffet of sorts. Three friends came over (another gluten intolerant one) and we made large salads. I was actually still very full from my lunch, which was the rest of that Mexican dish I'd had the day before, that I barely had a salad.
I proceeded, however, to overeat. I ate without thinking, for hours because we were playing games and talking. I ate VEGETABLES and FRUIT, some blue tortilla chips, salsa and some bean dip. I also had the first alcohol since the cleanse (lemonade and 44 North vodka, yummy!) I felt really badly about eating without thinking, but at the same time I don't think I've ever eaten so much fruit and veggies. Raspberries, cherries, strawberries, grapes. We plowed through them.
I am thinking of starting the ELOO again today because, while I ate great things, I still went overboard and ate too many of them - with the most uncomfortable full feeling. I ate past being full, and I don't like that idea.
I've not managed to work in too much dairy or meat yet - I've probably had a total of a 1/3 of a cup of meat since being off the cleanse.
Oh, and I was diagnosed with rosacea...so at least we KNOW about it now.
