23 Days Raw, A Lifetime to Go
Feeling good today. Had an excellent raw weekend. My Sunday weigh in gave me a boast, 3 more pounds gone. I really needed that. Was concerned I might be eating to many fats. I used to gain a pound a week with my old S.A.D. eating habits. Those old, bad habits aren't just broken, they are dead and buried.
When someone says they want to lose 10 pounds, I think...been there, done that. I said that 3 decades ago, and I did lose that 10 lbs, more times than I can remember. Each time I lost weight, I gained it back, plus more. I can count calories, I know how to lose weight, but I never made the permanent changes required to free myself from my food addictions.
Some people can use a raw food diet to lose a little weight or to cleanse their system. That's wonderful. I have proved over and over, that for me, cooked foods are addictive. If I'm eating them, I don't stop. I tell myself I'll stop soon, but I don't. If I want to feel good, and stay healthy, I must be raw. There can be no cooked food for me, not one bite. Been there, done that. Too many times.
