Taking a Break

So I guess you might say I was pushing myself too hard. It’s been almost a week since my last post.  I remember it well.  It was weigh-in day, April 19th.  (smh) I decided to chill a little bit, pull back, so to speak, partly because I was starting to go a little bonkers, trying…

Get Busy Doing What You Love

Short post today, Wednesday, April 19th, 2017.  Weigh-In Day.  252.  No big hurrah, but the pounds are coming down. These past couple of days have been really good.  I’ve been super on point and there’s one element…one key piece….that’s helped me stay the course, sticking to essential nourishment and water: I’ve been super busy. This…

Running Away

Today, ironically the day of the Boston Marathon, I discovered that I’m a runner.  Truthfully, I already knew this, but today it became painfully obvious.  I run from my emotions. On Saturday night, I decided to, along with my regular water intake, to consume just the bare minimum;  just a couple of pieces of fruit, for the…

Home-going Prayer for the Recovering Food-Addict

I wrote this prayer the other day, and I’ve been saying it upon arriving home, before I go in my door, and in the midst of a trial, when needed.  This falls under mind renewal, but also accesses a greater power that has helped me tremendously, especially yesterday, when I had to do some food…

The Hardest Part Just Might Be Over!

I’m celebrating in my heart right now!  Today is “Weigh-In Wednesday,” and you know what that means. Time to reflect on the choices I’ve made this week.  Today’s weight is…. (drumroll)…..255.  My goal was actually 258.  I drank my water. I ate a little fruit in the morning and a little fruit or salad in…

Small Beginnings

Once you start walking on the path, you realize just how long the journey is, and just how far you really have to go. Don’t worry. Zechariah 4:10.  “Do not despise the day of small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin.” Guess what:  The time will go by whether you move…

Cooked Food Causes A.G.E.ing

Back in chemistry class, we learned that when heat is applied to a molecule, the molecule’s structure changes.  In essence, the original substance, with heat applied, becomes something else.  The problem comes when we prepare our meals by cooking them, and expect to receive all the nutrients we need.  Unfortunately, we aren’t.  Many of the…

Why Not Animals?

I am proud to be able to say that my diet is vegan now.  For many many reasons.  But it hasn’t always been that way.  I have eaten every kind of meat and dairy product on the market.  But now, after everything I’ve learned, there was no other choice to make. I chose this way…

The Wonders of (Only) Eating Fruits and Vegetables

“The miracle of the Raw Food Diet is not what you’re eating, it’s what you’re not eating.” ~Tim VanOrden. To get out of the body’s way, and let it do what it does.  It always works towards health. Unfortunately, humans have bought into a system that says it’s not only ok, but beneficial to eat…
