Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Well, it's day 11 and I'm down 17 pounds. I'm so excited,because I believe that I will be able to change my eating lifestyle for good this time.I've been messed up mentally since Sunday, I was weepy and full off fear about me continuing without messing up. It was all self-sabotage, something that always gets me down. I revealed how I was feeling to some friends and they unbeknownst to me (until a couple…Continue
I was snobbish in my last entry, and I apologize if I put anyone off.
Wrote a lot about things here in this Raw Food Rehab blog box, but it got personal so fast that I removed it all and intend to figure out a way to write elsewhere. I want my own beautiful handwritten journal for the personal stuff, and what I would like to have is a crafting, raw foods, and philosophical thinking sort of a blog, three things I love to do and talk about. It's not going to be very personal…Continue

My Wheatgrass Juice recipe will BLOW YOU AWAY! Proteins! Amino Acids! You name it... WOW! I totally made this and DOWNED it after HAMMERING through my Insanity workout! Bring it? Consider it BRUNG! And then I drank this!
Okay... so what is inside?
My Wheatgrass Juice
17 grams of Wheatgrass
4 ouces of water
2 Fuji apples
My wife says I can consume anything because sometimes I just drink it. I tell her, "In thirty seconds it will be gone and I'll get all the nutrients and vitamins from it. Then, I just won't make it again."
My wife is eating well and juicing from time to time to help her get more nutrients and vitamins in her body. Much better than just eating breads, processed foods, noodles, etc... This way she is getting a bit of both.
She started with a…

Just wanted to share these photos. I'm new on here and am inspired to lose 84 pounds! I ballooned up to 252! I was 166! My inspiration came from watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. I blogged about my inspiration and what got me started.
On my blog you can also see my posts with my blood lab work results, as I raised my good cholesterol 30 points and my 'bad' is so good that the doctor said I am…Continue
How come my entry doesn't show up instantly in the sidebar after I post it? It appears to me here signed in, but when I log out, presto, gone-o. That's fruity. I hope you guys can see my entries :) It should appear to everyone.
I woke up extremely sick feeling this morning, and I think it has to do with the fact that I went to bed last night with a tongue as dry as sand paper. I totally dehydrated myself yesterday and barely drank any water!! So of course when I woke up…Continue

Nothing momentous about this day, except I have decided to become accountable for how I take care of myself. I am taking a course in Nutrition every Saturday morning and, coincindentally, the first full session of that class starts in one hour. The first session was largely administrative, where we received a few homework assignments that are to be completed over the course of the class and those assignments include
** a 24-hour food journal with nutritional analysis,
If you have been reading anything about my blog you know that I have been doing this juicing (without pulp) with my husband where we can juice as MUCH as we want and I add in 3 meals a week and he adds in 4 meals a week. Plus 1 night (date night) we give ourselves a night to go out and have some drinks if we want to.
I don't weigh myself but my husband has been saying that he can tell I have lost weight. I on the other hand just don't see it like he does…Continue
My husband and I are on a modified juice fasting life time kind of program. For today and until we hit our more ideal weight we each can choose to eat 3 meals a week for me and 4 meals a week for him while juicing the rest of the time and in any amounts we want to.
However, yesterday, I did get the itch to eat something when it wasn't my meal. So I did nibble but what I picked was some papaya and a few dates and was done with that. I am ok with this decision because in my eyes it…Continue
I started my new life style yesterday,
I juiced & I'm going to see if I can lose weight by just living on juicing.
I got to get myself to exercise but it's hard to motivate myself to do it.
Today I juiced but about an hour ago I was hungry so I ate some spoonful of peanut butter.
It helped. If I don't lose some weight by the first month of next year I promised my Doctor that…Continue
Today, I weigh 255 lbs.
How did I let this happen... AGAIN!!!
Raw, not raw... consistency with healthy eating, then undoing all of my previous progress and gaining everything, plus a little extra, back on to my poor 5'2"frame. You'd think that the constant pain I have from severe fibromyalgia would be enough to make me realize that I have to make some significant changes in my lifestyle, not even counting my future risk of Type 2 diabetes, cancer, and heart…Continue
14 Days into the month of August and i fear i am struggling... this time last year i was 4 Stone lighter.... i have not lost much weight since the month began and my diet is far from 'raw' most days.... it's a mental struggle and if i can overcome that.... the world would be my Oyster..... i need HELP fast.... any ideas anyone? Thanks in advance...
It has taken three weeks longer than I thought but Today is the day.
My sweet sister's surgery was a success and I have been home a week today, got the house in order, lots of veggies and some fruit and lots of raw nuts laid in and today I am totally pigging out on nuts and raw dehydrated cherries and soaked pumpkin seeds so far for breakfast and lunch. I am making a huge salad for dinner.
I was telling myself I should wait a couple more days so I could get…Continue
During Cleanse America, I approached the whole thing like a science experiment. Part of that was weighing myself daily to monitor what was going on. Surprisingly, I was able to stay objective about it and I actually made some good observations, like, the fact that I lost 5 pounds and did NOT gain it back when my cycle hit.
I have realized, however, that I cannot keep weighing myself daily. Doing so keeps me thinking like a dieter instead of tuning in to what my body is asking for.…Continue
Almost every woman I know has an emotionally charged relationship with her belly.Whether we are a size 4 or 14, most of us objectify & judge our bellies on a regular basis.
How do you think all of this judgment &…Continue
I can't wait.. well I am a bit concerned that I am diving in again without really being prepared but I always want to make it harder than it has to be with all kinds of raw goodies and really I just need to stock up on lots of great fruit and veggies and make it more simple this time around!
I have of course gained all my weight back.. actually to exactly where I was before I started last Summer.. 24 pounds.
I feel fatter though.. and less healthy. I am so…Continue
I haven' been on here for over a month! And yes, I have to admit I was eating some cooked food. I was mostly raw then I got a stomach virus which had me afraid to eat. Then I only trusted cooked food (I haven't had any meat!) so I've been a vegetarian.
Now today, I joined weight watchers and came back. I'm ready to get my life on track again. I'm going to start biking on the weekends and hopefully start hitting the gym on weekdays lol. ( A lot of…Continue

I am coming off of my first detox and I have to say the effects are extreme. I am still experiencing a deep cleansing even thought I have been eating my usual diet for the last two days. It was so nice to salt my food again. I did not realize how much I was over salting everything. Now a pinch is just heavenly. I really missed my cacao too. Tonight my desert was a raw cacao mouse that was just terrific. I cannot wait for Rainier cherry season I will love dipping those in that chocolaty…Continue
Very thrilled to report that I've lost 8.5 pounds my first week raw! There's nothing like a good start to help confirm that you've made the right choice for weight loss and health... it encourages me a lot. I know a lot of the weight lost this week is probably due to cleaning out my system, but I'm hoping for a 1-2 lb. weight loss per week after this initial drop. I think the diet high in green smoothies agrees with me! …Continue
