The time has come
After doing the research and grilling my sister to no end, I've decided to give raw a try. Mainly because I've got food issues that I need to get past. I've been praying about it and have decided that I need to make some major changes in my life. I have 75-100 pounds to lose (at least 75, if I can lose 100 I'll be looking WAY CUTE!) and I need to quit looking to food as a source of comfort.
The choices I've made in the last decade have gotten me here. My weight is the single thing that I need to change in my life. Everything else is super - great husband, wonderful family, decent job, super friends, awesome church. Life is good.
I'm lethargic all the time. I have no energy, and I'm completely out of shape. I have diverticulosis and digestion issues. My feet always hurt. I have TMJ disorder and suffer from migraines. I'm medicated for clinical depression, and the medication that I take for that actually helps my jaw and headaches. I'm only 37, and by the end of 2007, my prayer is to be able to say, "I'm in the best shape of my life - I FEEL GREAT!"
I know it will be a struggle, but I'm ready to face the challenge. I've been praying about how to change these things in my life, and God has led me down this path. I lean on Him, knowing that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. With God, all things are possible. This woman will be healthy.
Tomorrow, I go shopping to pick up my week's worth of food. I start on Saturday, March 17, 2007.
