11 days Raw Food Diet

11 days into this raw fruits/veggies thing, I'm down 8.5 inches total, 4 of them off my waist!  I've lost 10 pounds, and now my detox is over? My voice is back, sore throat is still sorta lingering but BOTH of my nostrils are now available for breathing!  (A first for me, usually it's one nostril, especially during allergy season)  I have tons of energy, my skin is clearer than it's been in a long time, sleeping better etc...  Not sure if this is a result of the detox or a result of my weight loss, I actually ENJOY the sun now, I don't mind it when it is hot outside... it's really bizarre for me because I've always been the kind of person to hide from the sun inside with the A/C cranked, but I get so cold now.

Black Dress 1 year later

A little over a year ago I took that picture on the left May 10th to be precise, I had lost about 30 pounds at the time, now I'm down 54 pounds, feeling great, been taking loads of walks lately, and I'm eating a strict raw fruits and veggies diet.  Turbo Fire will resume in a few days after I make sure my ankle is ok after I fell and twisted it yesterday while stepping off a curb.

A new challenge!

Recently I made some new, fabulous and fit friends! They invited me to join them in training for a fitness show. And I said yes!

I've been so stagnant in my motivation for weight loss and this was just the thing I needed to get me back at it again. I have a little under 6 months to get into fitness show condition, I have probably a good 60 pounds to lose to be lean enough for the show. So I'm stepping up my workouts, I'm doing Turbo Fire still but I'm throwing in some self made strength training workouts.

I'm cleaning up my diet sooo much more, even more than it already was, and I'm counting my calories again. I had been doing 1800-2000 a day and now I'm doing 1400-1600, I've been doing Juice meals with my juicer two or 3 times a week and drinking Strawberry Shakeology every day. I am so excited, and scared. Scared I won't lose enough in time, really scared because I have to lose 10 pounds a month! I'm scared of being in a bikini in front of so many people. Basically parading around in your underpants. Yes I KNOW my site is full of progress pictures of me in my underwear, however that's online, you don't have to see those people seeing you! But despite all of my fears, I'm doing this, and I'm doing it for me.

I'm pushing through my fears and I'm going to finish transforming me into the girl I KNOW is underneath these last 60 pounds!
