fredudian slip...I meant to say grateful, but it was too perfect. Thank you to everyone who took the time out of their day and helped me the other day work through my SAD sugar work situation. Btw, I've decided I'm no longer going to refer to it as: processed sugar/chocolate...it's SAD sugar that is what it is. Of course your thinking, duh, if your raw and your still eating SAD sugar your not going to drop any weight. Any educated informed person would know this, but when one is in the throes of an addiction you can't see the salad in the leaves...forest through the trees...chocolate vs peas. It has been almost 10 days and let me tell you, now, finally, just like Alissa said 'the weight is flying off'. I've gone from 173 to 169.2. This is huge as that number would not budge for months. I just had to tweak one more thing which was not easy, but the key was I wanted raw more. I really had no idea that raw would have such a profound effect on me and I am surprised I am still just naturally doing this without thinking about it too much. It is as if this is just the way it is. That's all. What really works for me is knowing that I am eating properly, I am going to avoid many health issues, and this includes any extra weight I've been carrying around. Have you ever lifted a 5lb. weight? Well, I've almost lost 5 pounds of sugar I was carrying around on my body. I wonder how much a bag a sugar weighs? that's disgusting. I did find that taking a teaspoon of agave here and there every couple of days really helped me fight those old SAD sugar thoughts. This really works.
