30 Bananas a Day!

Here it goes...
I am diving head first into the low fat raw vegan diet! I just ordered my copy of Dr. Graham's 80/10/10 today!

A little about me, I have been a vegetarian all of my life. Even as a baby my body rejected meat. I've never been able to eat it and never have ( not counting tiny pieces that slipped by that usually made me sick )

Even though I didn't realize at such a young age what I was doing, when I got old enough I made a decision to never eat anything that has a mother. (That usually gets a laugh from my friends!) I am best known by anyone that knows me as the girl who only ate macaroni and cheese and soda crackers.

I am going to be 40 next year and I cannot believe it's taken me so long to see how bad I was treating my body! Even while I was pregnant with my 3 kids, I didn't eat correctly. I have a huge texture problem.

This is hard for me to write because I am so embarrassed by my eating habits that I usually just blow it off when people ask me about it. Life has not been easy this way. The way I am talking about is the horrible addiction to carbs and diet coke. I am really a picky eater, to the point of embarrassment.

But, it has reached a point of listening to my intuition! I NEED to change if I want to be around for my kids. My husband has high BP and is getting over pneumonia right now, my kids are sick all the time. I am committed to making this life change. I believe the power of eating what nature has intended, I believe it will make me feel better, I believe I will have more energy and I know if will be the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. But I love myself and my husband and 3 kids.

I have not started yet, I want to get all the information first. Start to emotionally let go of my old habits and prepare mentally for this. I am already starting to see what changes can happen. My mind is soaking everthing up like a sponge and I am ready! I think 40 is going to be fabulous!
My secret (secret) goal is to one day dance again....
