On Tuesdays I weigh myself on the doctor style scale at my neighborhood health food store . I went in today to see how I did this past week…
I lost another 4 lbs!
That has me down to 230 lbs…
Twenty Four Pounds lighter than I was just 5 short weeks ago.
I feel super; and by that I mean more energy than ever, no heavy gross bloated feeling, flexible, strong, and just about up for anything. On an intangible level–I relate to people so much differently now–eye contact, confidence, and even a little swagger are back!
People are asking me questions (unsolicited) about my life and my creative aspirations. One new contact wants to pay the fee to have one of my screenplays covered by a well known agency in Hollywood.
Other opportunities have presented themselves because I now have the energy and confidence to be putting myself out there. When I was spending most of my time drinking and the rest complaining–for some odd reason people and new prospects avoided me…
There is some kind of magnetism that goes along with eating better. I’m not going to say it only comes from eating a diet high in raw foods, but for me, eating only raw has unleashed dormant natural charisma and confidence which is helping me connect to a variety of people in new better ways.
I’m still not entirely sure what to do with my blog.
It’s initial purpose was to chronicle a sixty day raw food journey completed by a regular guy who had to overcome addictions and figure out how to eat this way even though he was tapped out financially (as in seriously broke and underemployed).
I’m a little more than half-way through that process now.
Here’s what people I’m meeting in-person and through the web are overwhelmingly asking for…simple, play by play, how to go and be raw info.
No philosophical stuff, or news articles on factory farming atrocities…but something akin to having a close friend take you by the hand and lead you into their raw food kitchen. People have been almost begging me to demonstrate how to make this seemingly insurmountable leap from cooked to not.
First, I’d have to become a better blogger. I find it difficult to commit to daily posts. So many ideas swimming around and started, but I have NEVER been the guy who edits and finishes stuff. I start things. I brainstorm. I motivate. I imagine…
I have a lot of ideas now related to raw foods and this blog–I just need to decide what I can commit to…
Maybe I will end up collaborating with others? I’m very open, and as always your feedback and ideas would make my day.
