Who is this chick?

7

Cheers! Thank you for checking out my blog. My name is Sarah and I currently live in the South Shore of MA with my fiance James (HTB) and our two fur-babies, Samson and Chloe. James has a grown-up job and I’m almost finally finished with my undergraduate degree in Literature and Creative Writing.

I started this blog in January of 2010 as a way to chronicle my weight-loss journey (ie keep me honest) as I try to whittle myself down for my wedding in April. I’ve been losing and gaining the same 6-8 lbs for the past … Oh, let’s say two years. And the best part is, I don’t even want to lose 6 or 8 lbs, I want to lose 15-20! I can never seem to get it right, or stick to it. I’ve tried so many weight loss plans. Atkins, South Beach, Weight Watchers, Master Cleanse, NutriSystem — basically, you market it and I try it. All that’s helped me do is turn my poor body into a hot mess and make me, my face, and my hormonal balances completely ridiculous. It was during my last weight loss stint — NutriSystem — that the camel’s back was finally broken though. The food was so processed and untasty that I actually started to crave things like fresh veggies and whole grains. The only problem was, I couldn’t eat what I was craving and be on NutriSystem. It was a like a light bulb went off in my head: if eating whole grains, fruits, and veggies was BAD… then this was NOT GOOD.

Over the past few months I’ve adopted a highly raw, quasi-vegan diet. I probably eat 70-80% raw on average these days, and I have added in goat’s milk cheese and butter, which is easier to digest than cow’s milk. I feel amazing. My skin is glowing, I have energy, and I’m happy. I think that good stuff that’s going in, is radiating out, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I’m not dropping weight like gangbusters, but I have finally realized that I’m not in this for a quick fix. I don’t want to drop 10 lbs unhealthily, only to gain 20 back and feel miserable. This journey is about finding my perfect place, in my body, in my life.

The most important thing I’ve learned: enjoy the ride!
