30 Bananas a Day!

What a difference a couple of days make!!

Wow, I can't believe how different I feel and look after 2 days after that post I wrote saying how terrible I felt! I feel SO much better after getting back to eating raw and also seeing my family and friends for the past 2 days- it's been so great and such a mood lifter to get out of this chaotic house!! I really believe it's a combo of the support from this community, prayer, seeing my family and friends, spending some time in the sunshines, eating raw, etc. I really feel great and my skin looks younger as well- I am still doing great on the no coffee thing- I think it's been past 2 weeks now!! I feel skinnier now as well- I still haven't weighed and really have no desire too right now- I think I am still too fragile for that- I just plan to keep eating like I am and see how I feel in look in a few weeks. I also got Doug Grahams 811 book for Christmas and I COULD NOT put the book down!! The best thing that I learned but never realized is that fats cause us to hang on to extra sugars in the body and makes us fatter, bloated, moody, possibly have diabetes later, etc.- This was really a WOW moment for me- Now I totally get it!! I have been really careful on my fats- mainly in my salads because I do like avocado and some nuts- so now I just use a teeny bit of avo and a teeny bit of nuts- and the rest is a ton or organic spinach and cucumbers- yum! It hasn't been easy cutting down on the seasonings like herbamare, but I have been and I do think I feel and look better- I'm really amazed by my mood in the past few days- I do believe this diet is the diet we should all be eating but I also give glory to God because he has helped me to feel better when I thought I just wanted to die. Even if I have to pray for strength to stay on this eating plan every day, I am going to do it, I am going to pray for willpower and strength, because I feel so great right now!! I wanted to say THANK YOU to all of your wonderful words of advice and support, experiences- this community has been a lifesaver for me and you have no idea what your words have meant to me- so thank you so much!!

Well, I am going to do some cleaning up around the house and see if my hubby needs any help on the bath remodel. Hope everyone had a Happy New Years- I'm so excited to be done with 2009 and moving on to 2010- to awesome blessings and wonderful things!!!

Here are some picture from the New Years Eve Party last night with me & my nieces- there will be more at my blog at www.fitandfabulouslife.com/ later if you want to see all of them.

I was kind of sore after the trampoline- we did alot of running around and jumping, but it was so fun!!

Thanks Zoe. I do think that the coffee was a part of the problem as well- I think so much has helped since then and I am working on thinking more positively too and being around my family helps. I really don't even miss the coffee- my tastebuds even seem to be sharper today- I'm loving it!
