Thanks, Mr. Candida Cop, for your unneeded criticism.
If you read the post properly, you would have seen that I mainly did it because I was too meek to complain to the waitress that there was nothing I could eat (I am vegan and even that rule was broken by eating the salad + bread) and I didn’t want to make a scene in front of everyone at the table. I haven’t been out to eat since being a vegan, let alone since I’ve started this diet. Basically, I was not prepared/ready for the challenge. And it’s not like I totally went off the wagon and said, “Screw this” and am not doing it anymore. I think it was a positive experience because it showed me, at least, that I wasn’t really missing anything by doing it, number one (there was no craving or desire for the food anyway) and number two it was a good gauge to see how my body would react.
So please keep your judge and jury comments to yourself, thank you very much. I have enough things going on in my life, that the last thing I need is some mult account (because, let’s face it, I see that you are a new poster, so it’s obvious you’re someone with a secret agenda) preaching to me about what I should and should not be doing. I have this under control and don’t need you to wave your finger at me, thank you very much. I’m not punching babies in the face. I ate a few matchsticks of beets and a couple raisins for christ’s sake. I’m not ashamed of what I did. If I was, I wouldn’t have posted it. I like to be honest. Obviously, for some people, being honest is dirty and bad and an open invitation by others to lay on the guilt. I’m only human, and I still stand by everything else I have said on this forum about putting health first. It’s just that my social awkwardness and introverted nature trumped my need to be healthy yesterday, that’s all. I have no problem stating my case in written form, but around others I clam up. So sue me.
ETA: Actually, if people on this board are going to create mult accounts and be cowards, then why even bother sharing my experiences here? I mean, if you’re that cowardly that you’re hiding behind a computer, yet still feel the need to hide behind A SECOND screen name in order to save face, then this is not a place I want to share my experiences. Later.
