Hey everyone....I wanted to say good morning and start my daily post- I have a busy day today with back to back clients~! It will be crazy....but I am packing all of my food to take with me- My 1st client wants to go RAW! Wish me luck
My weigh in today is 141.5
No food yet- have to get the kiddo's ready and off to school- will log my food before I leave today and well- EVERYONE be safe and careful if you are going out for the evening and please avoid all the sugar temptations associated with this day 10/31/06.
I am home from my crazy day- Have a few moments before I have to pick the kiddo's up.
Meal #1 -Green Smoothie- Bananas, Kale and strawberries
Meal #2- Banana, Raisins
Meal #3- Small Gala apple with some Raw almond butter
Meal #4- Mixed Greens with Ceasar (pignoli, grape seed oil, garlic, lemon juice and herbs)
Meal #5 Banana Strawberry smoothie- Could not finish so I am making leather out of it!
Meal #6...drumroll please.......2 dark chocolate kisses from my kids trick or treat candy.....before we throw it all in the trash. Why did I do that????????????
WORKOUT: 45 minutes weight training and 45 minutes cardio- Treadmill at 2% incline and 4.2 mph
Good moring FF! You are certainly off and running this morning.... hope your day is a good one.
I actually gained a pound yesterday! Maybe those chips just took a delayed route getting to my BOTTOM! But in any case, it's realistic.
So today, I still feel pretty awful. Had fever again last night and my thoat is still a mess, and I don't want to even mention the stuff I'm coughing up! YUK!
I'm starting with a small-ish green smoothie today and will just flood my body with water today - maybe a little warm hybiscus tea too.
Will log as I go:
tall glass of lemon water
raw crackers w/herb spread
water, water, water
I really like 811, I think it makes this so much easier!!!!!!
Keep it up!
I think that God must smile on those
who hold on tight to what they are dreamin' of
Sorry you are not feeling well Maraw. Get lots of rest today.
I agree about 811. I think it is so easy to lose weight that way. I was definately eating too much fat before. I am going to save the fat for special occasions like Thanksgiving and Christmas. I am making the raw chili today because that is our custom to have chili on Halloween.
I am new here and I would like to try this out too. I have 6 lbs to loose since the birth of the 2nd child almost 2 yrs ago.
I have a question though. Does anybody worry about their metabolism slowing down by eating a raw food diet? It seems like a lot less food than a SAD diet and I always wondered about that.
I am so sorry that you are feeling bad- The everchanging weather lately has made me kind of unsettled too- The trees aren't sure if they are blooming or dying off- ton's of pollen and mold out there right now. we have had several 30-40 degree swings in a week or two CRAZY weather!

A good late morning!
It looks like I am all by myself on this thread- Hope everyone is doing well! Weird shaky feeling this morning just from a few slips last night! So, I have only had water and bananas this morning. Getting ready to leave for an appointment but wanted to check in! Maraw....we had yet another weather change- how are you feeling? I hope much better
Weigh in: 142 lbs
I will have my body fat measured next week and give update.
Meal # 1 - Lemon water and a banana
Not at all (cough, cough) I'm here - but just barely.

I am feeling better today, although not much. Thanks for the prayers and concern. Whatever it is, it's made a home for itself in my chest and I'm not happy about it. A friend recommended some amino acid therapy that I'm going to try to get things loosened up. Hope it helps, and soon!
This morning I've not had much appetite, yet I'm hungry. Does that make any sense?
handful of carrot sticks.
2 chocolate chewies (yes, these are raw ;) )
guacamole w/cucumber - yummy!
Today: still 156!
I just sent ya an email too....but I am so sorry that you are still not feeling your best.
I know exactly what you mean....about the hunger but no appetite- It seems like my stomach is hurting with hunger pangs but at the same time it feels full and slightly nauseated
It is funny to me now that with these little slips- I kind of wonder if I just "do it" to prove a point to myself of "okay...so now how do you feel?" It amazes me that the level of discomfort is so strong that I would ever even be tempted....that mysterious brain of ours- I guess I will never truly figure myself out -haha!
I am wishing you healing and rest today- I have to do a couple of in-home trainings today-ugh! Totally not in a motivating mood....especially with this bizarre weather. Get well and have a GREAT one!

It is, therefore, evident that it is possible to cure by foods, aliments and fruits; but as today the science of medicine is imperfect, this fact is not yet fully grasped. When the science of medicine reaches perfection, treatment will be given by foods, aliments, fragrant fruits and vegetables, and by various waters, hot and cold in temperature.

yiikes, with all that's happening around here I haven't been on the board in ages.
I'm down to 143.7, that's a total of 23 pounds lost since I started Raw (and have had a few slips along the way) back in the end of June.
15 pounds to go exactly now.
I'm doing an apple fast today. Depending on how I feel, I might continue it tomorrow. I just want my body to feel cleansed again.
HW: 184 pounds
SW: 179.2 pounds on May 23rd
CW: 164.4 pounds (14.8 pounds released!)
GW1: 170 pounds MET! :p GW2: 160 pounds :cool: Final Goal: 130 pounds
LAG - you're the greatest!
I just sent the calendar files to the printer and I feel SUCH a weight lifted. We made it - on time and lookin' good! I feel like I just lost 5 pounds of anxiety if that's possible.
The two grapefruit this morning really picked me up! And the guacamole with cucumber is really good. The texture is kind of different, but I really like the taste! Great suggestion (can't remember who had that genius idea - but I am so grateful for it!
Hope everyone is having a great afternoon!
Count me in too. It's just the thing for what I want right now.
So far today (it's 3:30 where I am):
1 oz cashews
my favorite smoothie:
1 oz almonds, 1 cup frozen strawberries, 1/2 banana, 5 small dates
Haven't drunk any water to speak of yet so will put my quart cup nearby now.
Dinner will be a large salad with lots of green and crunchy things.
Perhaps an RP brownie later.
Going to go for mini meals. I just started back weight training yesterday after several months "off". Still walking or biking an hour in the mornings.
I am ready to rock and roll.
I spent the day clearing and purging my home office. That tells me I am ready to let go of lots of stuff energetically, so it's a very good time to focus on raw and releasing excess fat.
Thanks for the idea Mawraw.
