Journey to Better Health
Getting Healthy Again...and Struggles
It's been over a year since I stopped being raw. I've gained a lot of weight and that's not healthy.
I haven't been eating raw because my finances are very limited. I don't receive food stamps and I can only afford to spend less that $100 a month for food.
I'll figure out a way to eat mostly raw. 10 years ago, I used to weigh 195 lbs. I was healthier at 195 lbs than at my current weight (290 lbs).
My grandmother died in late 2001 due to obesity related complications. I don't want to die young.
I have to cut out all sweets, including friend plantains, cookies, soda pop. No more eating heroes and cake.
Even my mother has said that I need eat less and lose weight. It won't be easy for me to cut out junk foods...because they are SO addicting.
I plan on gradually cutting out all processed foods and meat. Next year, I'll buy a blender and start making green smoothies.
