Raw Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

Super quick update: Two months "re-rawed," still loving it, still taking off pounds.  Not sure what I weigh because I am being good and not weighing (it tends to mess me up.)  But my clothes feel looser and hang better and I feel lighter on my feet and less pain, so woo-hoo!  I have settled into a pattern that works: green juice upon rising, green smoothie late a.m, heartier raw entree for lunch, very light dinner like a big salad or just an avocado mixed with salsa. 

Mom's still in a rehab facilty recovering from her surgery, and they put my dad on hospice. :(  Two terminal parents now.  I have a lot of sadness and tears but I am just focusing on cherishing them NOW.  Now is all we have.

 

I am completely overwhelmed by paperwork and medical bills and paying mom's stuff and my stuff  and applying for programs for her that have literally, 30 pages to the application and extensive needs to document everything.  I have never photocopied so much in my life.  This too shall pass!

 

My mantra is no matter what.  No matter what: love.  Believe. Keep trying.  No matter what.

...& I shared that verse in thinking about the changes you're radiating, as you're letting go of your old wardrobe!

So good to catch up with you, but so sorry to hear about your parents....but so glad you're looking after yourself well, which sure goes a long way to lightening the stress load & it's affects! I'll be praying for your parents, & your time with your dad, especially, & your paperwork to lighten up, & for God to send some support....
...good for you for knowing the scale is not the true measure...& it's wonderful that you're just paying attention to how you feel, & how your clothes fit...right now, I'm weighing almost daily cuz it's comin' off fast, now that I'm back to 100%, & also cuz I've entered a 3 month weight loss contest, but if it begins to mess with me I'll definitely be goin' to once a week or less! Lol!

Keep on keepin' on...you're doing & looking soooooo awesome! & I can see how you've grown (as you've been shrinking!) & the peace & joy & STRENGTH radiating from you! It's great to follow your progress again as I'm back in the saddle again myself! You'll be in my thoughts & prayers!

So proud of you for pushing through and doing so well!  Do hate to hear that both of your parents are not doing well and that you seem pretty bogged down to boot.  You will get through this, Lady!  Try not to let the stresses involved rob you of your enjoyment of spending the time you have left with them.  Praying love, peace and comfort over you and your family!
