The body can't lose this fast. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5118958 OK, who is messing with my bathroom scale? I've lost yet another 2.2 pounds since Monday - just two days ago. And I lost 4 pounds the week before that. (And 3 pounds the two weeks prior to that as I started slowly.) The body cannot lose weight that fast. Females can burn 2.2 pounds a week (2.5 with, what do they call it again, oh yeah, exercise.) One of three things: (1) my scale is incorrect, (2) I'm still losing water weight, or (3) grazing all day long on raw foods has raised my met...

I thought, as I opened my mouth to take a bite of papaya this morning. Then it occurred to me that perhaps this eating right thing might actually work! Oh, I fully intend to eventually lose weight, and feel better, but such a little thing as my mouth not cracking/bleeding was not expected, and surely not as soon as just my second day! <BR> <BR> I fell from grace on my first full day, doing my duty to clean out the leftover bbq ribs in the frid... Wed, 10 Oct 2012 16:03:01 EST Flying the White Flag - Time For Plan B http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5093445 Having learned the hard way that one cannot simply dump random fruits and veggies into a blender and expect anything palatable to result, I admit defeat. But I have a Plan B. (I'd call it Plan 9, but how many of you would catch that esoteric reference to an old B movie?) I suspect it was the papaya seeds that ruined my first attempt at eating raw. Not even an expensive high speed blender can save the biting pepper taste of the wrong ingredient. But, who knew? All my excitement was in ac... Wed, 10 Oct 2012 00:21:42 EST First Try a Disaster http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5092935 I've spent so much time buying equipment, books and watching videos that I spent no time thinking of what I would actually eat. So, here I am, ready to eat healthy, raw in fact, and not one idea or item in the refrigerator to help me. Despite all the knowledge and motivation I've been picking up I wasn't actually doing anything toward my next meal. <BR> <BR> So, what's in the fridge? I see some carrots, papaya, blueberries and plain yogurt. Should be fine, I say to myself. What the heck... Tue, 9 Oct 2012 16:22:33 EST
