Weekly Summary for Week 10 on Raw (YEEEEHAAAW!!!!!)



Yaaaayyyyyy!!!!!!
I'm sorry my scale is so old and cruddy looking but I had to show it again because it says 296! I have reached my first goal of the weight loss part of my raw lifestyle: Getting below 300. I reached my first goal earlier: attaining normal blood pressure during week 7. My next weight goal is to lose 5 lbs more for a total of 50 lbs lost.

Today I will make the living bread. I realized what that aroma is (it's been stronger the past two days): it smells like cheese! Not a pleasant smell emanating from those wheatberries. They don't appear to be bad- in fact, they are very pretty-looking, just stinky. I'll post the breadmaking exercise later.

WEEKLY SUMMARY
My calorie range was smaller this week than last, despite the fact that I still averaged 30 points a day. My carb range was much wider because I ate more carbs. It appears that I'm truly settling into a 2 or 3 lbs per week rate of weight loss that is more irregular than the previous weeks. I'm considering weighing weekly until I reach my 50 lb goal and then only weighing once every two weeks or so. That way I can slowly "train" myself to not rely on the scale as much and learn to trust in what I'm eating and how much I'm eating. It would be pretty amazing for me to lose weight eating raw without using the scale every week. The most amazing thing, however, will be to lose weight without counting points, calories OR watching the scale. That's an experiment for another month, but I definitely want to try it way before I get close to my final goal weight because it's something I'll have to practice for a long time before I feel comfortable. By the time I reach my goal weight I would like to have completely weaned myself off the scale and systematic food counting of any sort.

Now, for the weekly totals.

Allison:

Just gotta say Thank You!

While you are chronicling your raw food adventures, you are also illustrating and teaching. For which I am most appreciative.

I came by your site at a moment when I needed encouragement.

I found your blog through a misadventure (having nothing to do with food, but everything to do with mind/body/spirit nourishment).

The misadventure lead me to a bookstore, where I found a used copy of Juliano's "RAW The UNcook Book"; which lead me to his website; which lead me to the forums; which lead me to a post of yours on 2/5/06.

My goal isn't food oriented at the moment, but your core thoughts and observations can be applied to any "goal".

So, I've put your site in my favorites to check back in vicariously with you now and again.

You rock woman. Thanks for sharing your journey. It's been most illuminating.
