I was scared to death to step on the scale since I haven't weighed myself since Sandy. I have been eating crap and feeling like crap. I gained weight in the past 6 months, about 20 pounds. Trust me it could have been worse. I was afraid it was going to be closer to 50 pounds. Let's just say the months of living in my car or staying at friends homes on and off when I finally caved in and accepted their invitations to sleep on their couch when the weather was just too cold to sleep in my car took its toll. I was eating too much drive thru, takeout, and sweets to self medicate myself with. Didn't medicate myself but instead made me feel sick and tired all the time. My numbers soared when I checked my glucose levels but it still didn't snap me out of it.
Then I said enough is enough. It also helped mentally that I had just moved into my own place. Not back to my house destroyed by Sandy as they are estimating it will be about 2 years before I can elevate and rebuild. It is tiny, but it is where I now call home and I am actually sleeping in a bed. Gosh does that feel good!
Yesterday I went out and bought a scale since mine was underwater with Sandy and had to be thrown out. Went to the Farmers Market and stocked up on fruits and veggies and decided Monday would be my start over day.
Today was Day 1 of back to Raw and I am happy to say it was 100% Raw. I am an all or nothing gal so it is easier for me to go 100%. Chocolate was calling my name all afternoon but I wasn't listening. Did not have any Raw chocolate in the house so I ate a frozen banana instead.
If I can get 3 days 100% Raw under my belt I will be on my way back to normal.
