Date: January 06, 2007 04:09PM

FOR 2 YRS. I HAD SEVERE PAIN FROM SOMETHING.THE DR. SAID ARTHRITIS.I WAS ON MEICATION FOR THAT AND I HAD SO MUCH TROUBLE WALKING AND HURTING EVERYWHERE. I WAS GOING THRU MENOPAUSE TOO.THEY THOUGHT I HAD CANCER AND TOLD ME I NEEDED A HYSTORECTOMY.I RAN OUT OF THERE, LATER I FOUND OUT I DID NOT HAVE CANCER-THEY WANTED TO TAKE OUT ALL MY FEMALE PARTS.WELL-I WAITED THEM OUT...AFTER I FOUND OUT I DID NOT HAVE CANCER.THEN I DID RESEARCH AND FOUND OUT FIBROIDS SHRINK MOST OF THE TIME AFTER MENOPAUSE-SO I ESCAPED FROM THE DRS. CLUTCHES-THANKS TO THE INTERNETTE AND THE KNOWLEDGE TO BE FOUND ON WEB SITES.THEN I WAS ON HIGH CHOLESTEROL MEDS. AND MY BP.WAS 150/100 AND THE DR. TOLD ME I WOULD SOON HAVE TO BE ON DIABETES MEDS.SHE PUT ME ON A DIET OF NO SALT AND NO SUGAR AND LOW FAT.I CAN SAY I WAS A HIPPY BACK TO EARTH VEGETARIAN BACK IN THE 60-70'S.SO I REVERTED BACK TO THIS OLD KNOWLEDGE TO GO LOW FAT.BEANS ARE FAR LESS CALORIES AND FAT THAN A SLAB OF MEAT.I CAN SAY THE DR. TOLD ME TO START WALKING 30 MINS EVERY NITE.THEN I PROCESSED IT TO 10,000 STEPS A DAY-I HAVE LOST CLOSE TO 40 POUNDS SINCE OCT.18TH OF 2006.NOW-I AM BEING AND GOING RAW FOODIST.I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR 4 DAYS.I AM SCARED AND EXCITED.I HAVE MY FOOD DRYER OUT AND MADE YAM CHIPS AND BEET CHIPS AND HAVE SEVERAL SPROUTS GOING TO MAKE BREAD AND I ALSO HAVE BEEN JUICING...MY HUBBY THINKS I AM CRAZY.BUT I FEEL BETTER.EVERYONE IN MY FAMILY SMOKES AND I HAVE TO COOK FOR ALL OF THEM.THINGS LIKE MEATS AND EVERYTHING THAT IS SAD.THE THING IS-I GOT HUBBY TO DRINK SOME SMOOTHIES AND HE LIKED THEM.SO I HAVE HOPE.TODAY I AM GETTING MY LITTLE GRANDSONS TO SEE HWOTO MAKE JUICE IN THE CHAMPION JUICER I HAD BURIED OUT IN THE SHED.DRUG IT OUT LAST WEEK.ALL SO EXCITING.

well-today was good on eating.i mixed avocado and banana together and ate that and about 5 whole raw walnuts.water and tea and then for lunch i made fresh apple juice and then dinner was a plate full-oranges,green peppers and celery and carrots and my good water.i walked about 4000 steps in exercising.i tried to get my grandsons to go outside but they did not want to.it was not raining-we could of walked.well-some good things happened.i got each boy to make apple juice.the little one loved making it but the older brother drank it all.i was proud to show them "real fresh juice".so all in all-it was a good day.my lentil sprouts are sprouting and i do not know what to do with them-my wheat berries are sprouting and i hope to make bread.i made my yam chips and my beet chips.i love the beet chips.they taste earthy.i always love raw fresh beets and i have tried to grow them and i never can.makes me so sad.i am looking forward to spring-hubby is making me raised beds and we are planting grapes and blueberry bushes...and lots of veggies.it will be wonderful.

i was just reading rawrnr's journal...well-in reading it i got enlightened as to why i ate so much yesterday.i was at my daughters house and i had to cook the little boys bacon for breakfast and eggs.lordy!my granny always made us pork bacon and you would put the bbacon inside the biscuits with homemade starwberry jam and real butter.and ice cold milk to swig it down with.so damn good.well-then i make the boys chocolate cookies and i adore those let me tell u.all day i was having to fix there food.i think this is why i ate so much.i was eating healthy things and more than i needed to make up for not getting all the goodies.that is what i think was going on.agh!well-at least i did not even taste one bite...of any of it.

well-i guess i am over my plateau...thank the lord...i weigh 190 now.so lets see--i have lost over 20 pounds in jan.so this is when i started the raw food thing.so that is pretty good.still a week left of jan.so i will probably loose 5 more pounds by then.i had a yam for breakfast.i did not know what else to do.to be on phase 1 of the grabiel cousens ways-there is not much i can eat.can i eat coconut???it says i can.so i guess i should get that.sounds good.well-i will be shopping back at pennys today...hubby could not get over the good buys on the new skirt and new shirt...so he gave me money to go there today.there is a health food store and maybe i can try a lars bar.

well-went shopping again yesterday-at j.c. pennys and i got this classy long dress with a cowl collar and belt-long sleeve and black -58$ dress for 10$-it was not my old size of a 3X-it was an extra large and it fits nicely.i got a sz.20 skirt-way too big and a size 18 skirt and it fit perfect-so they say every 10 pounds u loose is a whole dress size.i have lost 55 pounds now since oct.18-06.i feel way better. my husband is liking this cause he think s i am gonna be a foo foo girl...i can be but i hate it.i am like a camping,hiking,fishing girl.oh well-anyway trying to follow that gabriel cousens phase one of his ideas of better health.sheesh-i need more ideas of what to eat. somehow waking up and gnawing on raw zucchini does not do it for me.hoepfully someone will have some ideas.
