From sugar addict and SAD diet junkie to raw vegan and marathoner? Me? YEP.
I have always struggled with my weight and health. Being raised to LOVE sweets with Soft Drinks being my weakness. In college I would drink 8 to 10 sodas a day!
Of course I felt like crap all my life and never knew it. Almost 5 years ago I started over. I started elimiating bad foods one by one until I was left with conquering the awe powerful table sugar. I have been nearly sugar free for 2 years now. My stomach issues were greatly improved but it wasnt until I gave up Gluten that I found out that eating didnt require a stomach ache.
I was doing great and thought I would live life gluten, sugar, and junk food free for the rest of my life.
But I was wrong
this past Jan I found a lump in my breast, one I was pretty sure was caused by a hard fall I had while running sprints, but a lump in the breast is always scary. I went to the dr and the golf ball size lump was said to prob be a cyst but wasnt sure and that it needed to be removed. I made an appointment for the surgon and on the advice of Dr Graham started raw vegan. 3 weeks later the surgon could not find the golf ball size lump.... it was GONE!
God has blessed me in many many ways. I am thankful for the power of this amazing body he gave me to heal itself.
I am here to learn from more experienced 811ers and hope to continue to learn to LOVE living this way.
I have my ups and downs.. I realize my transition will be bumping. 40plus years of SAD eating comes with some baggage. :)
I have a blog if you would like to read

I hit rock bottom.

This past Saturday ate the worst SAD meals I have had in YEARS.

I was so very sick. Felt like FLU coming on.

then I had a HORRIBLE run ..

Enough for me to get mad, and start over AGAIN.

I am serious this time.

In the right place mentally.

Tired of pain.. want to feel good!

That is a phrase used by Bill Phillips the man who started Body For LIfe.... His books were the beginning of my health and fitness journey. It was with body for life that I realized many things... #1 was how much crap i was eating.


Although the only thing I "follow" now with body for life is the eating many times a day... I still use and love this saying. I needed this saying last night as I sat with the family and ate a little bit of tuna and some homemade fries. It's funny…

I love it!

Its only been one and a half days and I already feel sooo much better! I made a wonderful lunch yesterday (the best salad I have every made!) and stuck to my 90% raw plan beautifully. I am so happy I am feeling so great. So much energy, and my tummy feels so relaxed and happy...I am gluten intolerant and over the past month or so had had a few foods that contained gluten... some on purpose... others by mistake (didnt realize they weren't gluten free) ...
