I'm in! I'm in!
Oh HOORAY! I found a way to post a new blog. I've been experiencing blogging woes for a few days now and couldn't leave an update.
So let's see. I think today is day 11. No cravings. No frustration. No slip ups. Just 100% raw raw raw. I feel great. I've lost 9 lbs.
There isn't much to say. Raw is so EASY this time around. A real walk in the park. I love it. I think 75% of my success is that I am in a different living situation. We were sharing a 2 family with my mother who is a VERY negative person and she can undermine my confidence just by entering the room. The last few times I tried to go raw she would criticize and make side comments and not only was I trying to grasp the new concept of raw, but at the same time I was trying to defend myself and the living foods revolution all while trying to learn about raw, go raw and stay raw. Now we moved out 6 weeks ago and my stress level went WAAAAY down. My dh is pretty supportive of my choice-as long as I keep making his steak and potatoes-LOL!
I attribute the other 25% of my victory to already having the resources and head knowledge. I "get" raw. I have recipes to choose from, I understand cravings and detox, etc. Those parts are not new. In fact I am quite comfortable in raw, if ya know what i mean. It doesn't feel like some far-out-new-agey-fad-diet. It's a viable choice-just as vegan, vegetarian, etc are.
So I have found out that Kermit was WRONG. It's easy bein' green.
