Just how many new beginnings am I going to ... begin? When am I going to quit..quitting - and starting over? When am I going to stay on track? Well I have the answer. NOW!!
I'll be 49 on 8/3. I weight 249 lbs. I've got so many health issues it's hard to even list them all. If I dont change and do something NOW, I'm going to be in some trouble. The kind of trouble that could be very severe.
I'm going to become a SP addict, because its going to be from this website where I am going to get the support that I need. I mean, my husband is wonderful support. But he's 6 feet tall and 140 lbs soaking wet and has never had a health issue in his life. Except for maybe a sniffly nose every 5 or so years. How much support can he really give, when he can't understand what I am going through? I mean, he can sympathize with me. But he sure can not empathize with me. Not like you all on SP can. So I'm going to draw from ya'll and you can all draw from me and my experiences as well. I think that's very important. There is so much here! Blogs to read for encouragement. Tons of amazing recipes. Tons of articles to read and learn from. Food and exercise trackers. Meal plans. Tracking nutrition and exercise. Gosh I could go on and on. This website is AMAZING.
So I'm going to start a raw food diet on 8/1 and never look back. In the beginning when I first started thinking of switching to raw, I was so afraid, and still am, that I wouldn't have the slightest clue of what to eat. I mean, how can someone only eat smoothies and salads every day??? But I started researching it. Watching videos and digging up recipes. And I'm realizing that it shouldn't be anywhere near as hard as I'm thinking it will be. A dear friend actually blessed me with an Excalibur 9 tray dehydrator and an Omega 8006 juicer. Waaat?? Can you believe that? She also gave me a really cool veggie slicer and a nut milk bag and a book called Fasting to Freedom which is super good. Now tell me it's not time to start a raw food diet! I've got the tools and I've got support. It's TIME! *giant smile*!
So I hope to meet many of you here on SP and encourage and be encouraged.
HalleluYah and Shalom!
