Raw Challenge Day 18

It's official, I have found my weakness.  It's interesting how in every way of eating we all have a weakness.  Switch to vegan, I'm sure you will find something you love that you can't stop eating.  Switch to raw and the same thing will happen.  Now it might not be a box of oreos or donuts but there is a weakness in every way of eating.  I have found mine.

Nuts.  I found a brand of nuts that I can't get enough of.  They are by Living Intentions and are called Gone Nuts.  They are like crack.  If there is a pouch in front of me I have to eat the whole pouch.  I know they are raw nuts, but that is still not good.  I don't want to be having things I just can't stop eating.

What this has made me realized is that I have come a long way but I still have A LOT to learn.  There are addictive habits I will always have and I need to figure out how to learn to deal with those.  So for now, I won't be bringing pouches of nuts to work anymore.  I will portion them out and bring just that one serving with me!

I'm not going to beat myself up too much though, I'm currently sitting at 213.4lbs!!  I have 3.4lbs to be in the single digits and then you know what that means?  Being under 200 is just right around the corner.  I can't tell you how motivating that is!  That officially means that since going raw I am down 13.4lbs.....ain't too shabby for 18 days!
