Elimination diet, day ten

Awwww, just in time for me to eat strawberries on my diet, my garden produces its first strawberry of the season. Awww! ;)

This afternoon I'm going to a barbecue at a friend's house, which should be interesting - I'm bringing my own food (venison burgers to grill, baby spinach & carrots, and strawberries & pineapple) which *should* satiate me... but I know there is going to a ton of food that I just can't have at all, and I'm sure it's going to smell fantastic and look great too. ;)

It's interesting that as I've been "dieting" over the previous 4938 years, I've never been this strict about anything food-related. I'll always have a "bite" of something that tempts me. I think this elimination diet is showing me that I can be strict if I need to - but I should of course also allow for treats when possible. Unfortunately, except for some fruits, right now treats aren't possible - but I'm over 25% through this diet and I don't want to blow it.

I'm 13 pounds from my short-term goal (which I'd like to hit by the end of July), 37 pounds from my long-term goal (which I'd like to hit by the end of the year). I CAN DO IT! ;)
