Sorry it's been so long since I've written. I've been.....well, making a lot of changes in my life! It's weird, I don't know what came
first...the chicken or the egg (the diet or the changes), but ever since I started this diet I've made some major changes in my life. For example:
1. I've been cleaning out my house, big time. I remember once reading an article that said that when someone purges their house, they purge pounds,
too....and well, it's happening to me.
2. I've made some changes with my family...putting some boundaries in place, etc...
3. I've been talking to recruiters about getting a new job so I could leave the city where I live now (hate it). Right now, I live in the desert, but
I miss the green, and I find myself craving to live someplace more "green."
4. I have hardly ANY appetite, which is sooo strange for me!
5. My cravings are almost entirely gone. I'm not craving chocolate, or carbs, or sugar. When I go out to eat, I automatically look for the
healthiest thing on the menu (a salad), and often ask for substitutes, to make my meal as raw as possible. I'm still not eating all raw, but my body
no longer craves processed food. Sometimes I do crave bread, though.
6. I got a cute new haircut.
So, lots of changes have been happening. I don't know if they all have to do with "going raw" but I feel good!
The only bad thing that happened is that I did go through a few days of terrible anxiety last week. Not sure why...maybe I was going through detox or
something... but I took a few homeopathic remedies and that made the anxiety go away, thank God!
As far as my weight, I actually haven't weighed myself since the last time I weighed myself. (Amazing!) BUT...my shorts have been falling down and
I'm always having to pull them up now... and all my hospital scrubs are very loose on me...and I was able to fit into a pair of shorts that I hadn't
been able to wear for over a year...(size 6!!) ...and the other day when I had dinner with my parents, my mother told me she could tell I was losing
weight. Since she usually points out every pound I gain, I'm taking this as a VERY good sign!!
Tomorrow morning, I'll weigh myself again. (I always weigh less the morning, so I hate to weigh myself at night) because I think it's been a week
since I did my last weigh in.
Today, I ate:
-swedish berry tea (love it...addicted to it, I swear)
-spinach salad (raw) with bleu cheese dressing
-dried plums (prunes)
-rice milk with some protein powder (not raw, but I only had a few scoops left so I wanted to get rid of the container, and I figured I'd make the
-water, water, water
And the weirdest thing is that I"M NOT HUNGRY! I was starving all the time before I started this diet, but now that I've been doing it for a little
over 2 weeks, my hunger cravings are way, way, WAY down.
It's damn hot here in Phoenix, so I haven't been exercising that much. But tonight when it got dark, I went out and walked for about 30 minutes, and
now I'm going to go out and do some laps in the pool in our townhouse complex. I feel like I need to start moving some more.
So....tomorrow is my weekly weigh in...I'll post my weight tomorrow morning.
