Real Food Rehab

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

Just a quick check in to say I just completed 30 days raw (again.) To me, this is such a happy day because I had a lot of challenges this month and it would've been easy to slip. As I have mentioned before, I moved back in to take care of my sick mom and my son graduated from high school. I hate the act of moving house probably more than anything else you can think of so that was a huge burden and I'm so glad that I'm done. I also had a big graduation party for my son with about 100 people. I served all kinds of sad food that would have been very tempting to me in the past but I was absolutely fine with it. The process of moving also meant that I needed to get rid of about 80% of what I own. I did have a lot of trouble grieving the loss of some of those things but I did not turn to food to handle my emotions. I think it's silly that I was so attached to my stuff but I am not beating myself up over that or judging myself. I am where I am and I'm getting better all the time. I also ate out at restaurants a lot between celebrating Joe's graduation and other family times and I always found something to eat on the menu even if we were not in a raw restaurant which we never were, lol. The most amazing part of all is that it has not really been a struggle. I am very much at peace with my decision to eat a healthy diet and I feel that God is carrying me and giving me so much grace. I don't know if it will always be this way so I am just grateful for the reprieve from the compulsive feelings. I have already posted about all the wonderful physical changes I have experienced and that has continued. I am still walking and breathing so much better and I am so grateful for that every day. I will never forget how it felt to be unable to do those simple things. Most of all, I feel that if I could stay raw during this month I can do it any month any day any time for the rest of my life. If you had told me that I would feel this way at the end of May I would have told you that you were insane. I want to thank my raw food community at Raw Food Rehab for all of your love and support this month. I know that we can do this together and it very literally saves lives. I really don't know how much longer I would have had if I had not taken these healthy steps.
