Writingbear: gaining weight again

I've gained again. I've not been keeping up with what i'm eating, or going to the gym on a regular basis. So I've gained. There is no surprise there. I am thinking that my life will be a continuous struggle with the weight.

After I watched the lecture by Dr Lustig called : Sugar The Bitter Truth, I've decided to cut out sugar out of my diet. I've done this before and it was successful. After two weeks I'm feeling better, and I think I'll keep it up. But I'm still counting ...

After I watched the lecture by Dr Lustig called : Sugar The Bitter Truth, I've decided to cut out sugar out of my diet. I've done this before and it was successful. After two weeks I'm feeling better, and I think I'll keep it up. But I'm still counting calories to make sure I don't go over too much. but I do not count veggies and fruit.
If you would like to see the lecture, go to youtube and search "sugar the bitter truth."

Antigone and I have finished the cross country bicycle tour. We passed through eight states as we bicycled from Chicago to San Fran! We are now writing her memoirs of the trip and it is going well.

We have a few reasons for doing the adventure. For Antigone, she brought awareness to Basset rescues across the nation. For me, Iím brought awareness to The Out of Darkness Overnight. The walk a thon supporting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

The two causes are related. Antigone was adopted from a basset rescue, and she is the reason that I was able to fight suicidal thoughts successfully. So we think that crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, where so many have lost their lives to suicide, will be a better ending to our bike tour.

I'm bicycling across the coutnry, I'm not sure I have a program right now. I need to eat enough to make me go, but not too much.

I've stopped tracking food, cause I don't always remember. But when the adventure is over, I'll get back to the following:

I track food, honestly.
I track workouts, honestly.

Being honest with myself is the best program!

I have gained as well, I think it is in the air! Seriously, I dealt with it by making a load of veggies and fish for dinner, yummy yet healthy. Victoria

Kudos to you for joining us here on the Raw Foodies Team. This will be one of the best decisions you have ever made. Sparkers come here and join this great team for a multitude of reasons. They may be curious about the health benefits of Raw Food and join to learn all about eating Raw. Many join for the weight loss. Many join the Team for a Detox. There are a great many people who do the Raw Food Diet as a Detox but then they realize how alive they feel and how the pounds melted away so effortlessly they decide to continue to eat this way. There are others who will join this Team for the health benefits of a Raw Food Diet. A diet based on raw food can reverse diabetes, arthritis (I personally have experienced this. I went off all of my arthritis meds after only a few weeks), heart disease, cancer (that is how I became involved with the Raw Food Diet when my sister was diagnosed with Lymphoma), eliminates migraines, the list goes on and on.


So join us and learn how to make the transition from SAD (Standard American Diet) to a healthy Raw Food Diet. You will be happy you did
