I am starting to eat mostly raw food tomorrow. I am a 49 year old woman who weighs about 430 or 440 pounds. I don't know exactly because I can't weigh myself at home. I can only weigh at the hospital on a special scale. The last time that I was there I weighed about 412 but that's been over a year ago and I've gained weight since then, so I'm guessing. I know it's over 400 lbs. Needless to say, I am going raw in order to get healthy and lose weight. So far, I have not been hospitalized for any diseases. I think I am borderline diabetic. I also have an irregular heart beat and a couple of years ago I had to go to the emergency room because I couldn't get my heart to beat regularly and they had to shock it back into rhythm. Usually, I can just take a deep breath or something to get it to go back into rhythm. Overall, I feel that I'm very blessed and I am trying to avoid being diagnosed with any major diseases. So, for the past 2 or three weeks I've been reading a lot about how to go raw and planning my start date. I created my a meal plan first and today I went to the farmers market and that grocery store and bought the items that I need to create my meals this week and most of next week I hope.
I'm very excited right now and I am looking forward to feeling better and losing weight. I know that I will need some support during this process and I'm hoping that I will be able to get that here. I also am looking forward to sharing my progress with you and encouraging anyone that I can. I will post here once a week with my weekly progress as a form of accountability. I hope that I will be able to make some friends too.
