As I announced this morning via Twitter (@urbanrawfood), I’m once again re-committing myself to raw food. Why is this time different?
- Health reasons: I’ve been feeling the affects of the almost 20 pounds I’ve gained in the last 2 years. I don’t want diabetes. I’ve been saying that for a while. Also, I know that African American women face heart disease and fibroids on a scale that is very significant compared to other groups who eat the same “Standard American Diet”.
- I don’t feel well. Just today, I had an issue with pain in my hip. I felt like someone yelled out, “Warning sign!”. This change is not a moment too late.
- I can’t fit into about half of my clothes. I know many of have the same testimony. Can I get an amen? LOL.
- I don’t feel sexy like I used to. Not to say you can’t be big and sexy, I’m just talking about how I feel. (Let me say that lest I get crazy comments).
I love myself, and this love of self is what’s motivating me.
So far today I’ve had fresh apple/carrot juice and 2 green smoothies. Doing well.
