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
Well, today is day 4 of my 30 days of mostly juice and I'm 10 pounds down. Yeah, yeah, I know its probably all water, but, 10 pounds, is still 10 pounds less on the scale. I was going to do all juice for 30 days, but found I couldn't afford it, so I added apples and oranges. So, I have green juice , raw protein powder (which I had two containers of already in the house) and I have 2-3 pieces of fruit a day. I'm still detoxing and feel, a little flu-like, weak and tired.But, I remember that…Continue
Well, I finally have a desire to want to juice again. I got lost in food and lost all desire to juice or even try to eat healthy. I read more books, tried more exercise, everything but, nothing helped me win the weight loss battle. A very good friend confronted me about why I wasn't even trying to lose weight anymore and refused to stand down in her interrogation of my willful behavior. I had no excuses.…Continue
It's happening..I'm getting healthier. I went to the doctor today and they did blood work and took my blood pressure. My blood pressure with meds was 115/70. I was shocked. I have only had a reading like that one other time in my life. Usually my readings are from 135-155 with meds. I am so happy. i want to get to these readings without the meds of course, but, I'll take them with the meds for now. Then they did my…Continue
Hey there everyone!!! I'm so excited, I'm on day 4 of a new juice feast/fast. As you know I did another juice feast/fast last month and returned to 90% raw food, because of the price of the juicing.Well the arthritis in my lower back/tailbone has me running back to the juicing as long as I have a way to pay for it. The back pain lessened somewhere between day 2-4. I mean i could not get out of the bed during the night. In the day I was okay, after i showered but, at night I couldn't hardly…Continue
Well, it's been another week or two into my journey. I have been on this journey for 8 weeks now. I've lost 19.5 pounds and almost 10 inches off my waist. I feel so much better.
I went to an annual event held here in Chicago for the first time in 16 years. I stopped going because of my limited mobility. But, i want to meet a friend of mine…Continue
Well, I'm still feeling great!!! Things are going well and I'm still walking without the cane. It's been 6 weeks since I turned to this plant-based lifestyle. I finally got to purchase a scale, I've lost 16 pounds and tons of inches. I brought a skirt just before I began this journey,and now I've taken it in a second time. I've lost a total of about 10 inches in my tummy area. This is great and I'm so happy. I now weight 241.4 and My goal was to be 239, so I'm not too far off my goal. My new…Continue
Hey everyone, hope that you all are doing great!!! Last night I survived a party and grilling session held to honor my nieces and my birthdays. I made 60 years old last week, thank you God!!!!
But, I had to really plan ahead. I went to Kmart and purchased a large thermal bag and before the party I loaded it down this stuff to help me make it through the night. I put in the bag the following: Cut up watermelon, 4 slices of ezekiel bread(2 slices for anyone who wanted some), red leaf…Continue
I want to thank everyone for their support during my juice feast. I ended it at 21 days, since the cost of juicing was keeping me broke. The cost for one day of juicing was $15.80 and i live in Chicago, where there is fresh fruits and veggies galore. I purchased some organic and some not organic fruits and veggies. But, I'll do some more juicing when I get some more money. I mean I'm was out of money in 2 weeks juicing.
How do I feel?? I feel great. I am walking better and leaving my…Continue
well, today is today is day 15 or 16. I just can't remember the day that I started. I posted 3 videos and they are kind of confusing because I forgot to rename them. But, it jumps from day 1 to today. I finally made a decision to do this thingy after watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly dead...twice. I got approved for SSI after they found out that both my knees need to be replaced. Doctor ran more tests and said I am in the beginning stages of hardening of the arteries. That really freaked me…Continue

Hello there everyone...I know, I know you thought I fell off the face of the earth!!!!!
I have to be honest, I had a very hard time during the cold winter months, I held on as long as I could, then off I went. But, thank God I'm back doing about 80% raw for the last week. The winter here in Chicago seemed to last forever and I just needed…Continue
Hey everybody, today was my first day at the raw food resturant.
Hereafter i'll just call it the raw food resturant, since I don't know if i should be saying the name of the place. You know legalities and all. I just feel more comfortable not saying the name. Go figure.…Continue
Fear seems to be my new big thing in my life.
It's like I'm afraid of everything.…Continue
I moved on Saturday and I was flustered and nervous about the move, since on Tuesday Chicago had 20 inches of snow dumped on it by a blizzard.
After we finally got our driveway shoveled out (only one lane of…Continue
Well, I thought that I'd report in again.
It's been 5 weeks on the R2E for me since, I started on Christmas Day.
I've lost 14 pounds and as reported a skirt I tugged and tugged at to get on
now I can easily fit.
I went from walking daily with a cane, to now walking with no cane
and I actually jogged down the aisle in the store the other day.
I went from having horrific pain from backache, sciatia, pelvis and hip pain to almost no…
Yesterday I went to Cousins Raw Food resturant Vitality IV in Chicago, Il.
I had raw spaghetti, raw ravioli, raw taco, raw pizza and a raw kabob, with a raw chocolate cheesecake for dessert.
The food was delicious and I stay full for the whole day.
I ate at about 11:30 in the morning and I only had a handful of pecans at about 8pm.
I was so shocked that I stayed full all day long. Is that normal when you eat 100% raw???
One of the owners Hatice…Continue
