Raw - Beginning my quest for a higher self.
Weelll, my name's Jason.. I come from Vancouver Island and I've had a problem with food my whole life.
I was raised with grandparents and I was rewarded sometimes several times a day with treats. My food consumption sped up largely due to my ex-military grandfather forcing me to eat really quickly in order for me to get any food at all. If I wasn't done by the time he was, he would just eat what I had left.
So started my f#&$ed up relationship with food and when and why I ate what I did. I was told by my grandmother that I was fat as a child, which really didn't help either.
Now I feel like whenever I make the decision to do something healthy for myself, or I see any progress in weight loss I sabotage myself. I eat the worst possible foods for me while feeling like a total turd the whole time I'm doing it.
This blog isn't going to be a bunch of whining, I promise, but I needed to give a little background on how I got where I am today. I have a very weak support system in RL, partially due to my lifestyle and the inability to talk to people close to me about this sort of thing. I am married and my wife isn't very encouraging about my weight loss or my ideas about eating raw and being healthy: she's omnivore 'till death I think. So that pretty much leaves me with all of you! *laugh*.. Luckyyy..
Anyways, so my goal to start with is to eat completely raw, except for one meal per day. Also, I'm going to stop eating by 7:00pm every night. I think this will help me be healthier, dream more vividly and lose the weight I need to. Also, I'm looking forward to waking up and not feeling bogged down with what feels like a brick in my guts. I'll be asking a lot of stupid questions, so consider yourself warned. I will try and log in every day or two and post my progress.
Thanks for being great already, I'm putting my blinders on and taking this one day at a time. I look forward to eventually sharing a 100% raw lifestyle in the future.
