Its time to start living again.

My last blog was more than three years ago when my Dad passed away. When he was gone, I lost hope for a while, I had lost my best friend. I lost part of me. The abusive marriage I was in, became unbearable. I finally was able to leave in August of 2012, but suffered horribly from PTSD. I am now able to come off the antidepressant, anxiety, and stomach medicine I had to take to maintain my sanity and get thru an ugly divorce, fight for my children,a new home, and a new life. Along the way my…See More

    I lost my dad last week. March 9th. I had a conversation with myself last month. The beginning of March has filled me with fear since I lost my Grandma Margaret March 6th, 1995.  I lost my Aunt Dorothy March 8th 2001, my Grandma Rocha March 8th 2000.  March 4th, my bio dad had a heart attack that he survived. So every year that thought comes to my head..will I lose someone this year. So March 9, I get the call..Tammy your dad is dead. Total shock..he hadnt been sick that we knew…

A year ago...I went wheat free then vegan then raw. My body feels amazing as I do...I still have times where my body cleanses and certain areas will feel as if they are healing. I am now embarking on external cleansing of my life my relationships and my home. I am studying minimalism.  I am purging thru things such as books videos commitments. What an amazing journey this is. I do not miss the 50 pounds I have lost...The juice ffeast was also so amazingly hard and freeing. I look to embark…

Finished 92 day juice feast with some modification

Posted on June 1, 2011 at 5:00am 16 Comments

Month 3...made it 2 months. Living like this is becoming a way of life. I realize I will probably always want my juice. Not sure what way to go after feasting for so long on what type of raw diet I want to be on. I want to find out how people that heal from this lifestyle stay healed. I know raw but I ve read some go all fruit, juice, salad and some do other things to maintain their healing. Get up have my juice through out the day...make sure I read on this lifestyle everyday and stay busy.…

Tamara, what a great story you tell.  50 lbs is amazing.  You look great.  Just so you know I'm not on here a ton but can still chat if you want. I have been very busy taking care of my dad that I had to drop some of my things to make more time for him.  Good luck on you path and keep up the great job.

Hi Tamara -- No idea how long I'll go w/ the JF. I'm down 90 lbs so far, still need to lose ~25 lbs. I am not a runner, but I'm following the Couch to 5K program (for slackers like me who might like to become runners) and am planning on doing two 5Ks the weekend of June 18-19, one in Boston on Sat., one in NYC on Sun., so it would be fabulous if I could stick w/ the JF until at least then. If it happens, great. If not but it still gives me a boost and helps things keep moving along, that's still great. I lost 7 lbs this wk, so we're off to a great start!
