Lisa…  What happened to your FACE???

 

Only your best friends and those that truly love you would have the audacity to ask such a question, yet this is how my January went….

So what happened to my face????  For real?

COOKED FOOD HAPPENED TO MY FACE!!!   (Seriously….  )

Here is the story:

In October, I discovered a lump on my thyroid.  I was diagnosed with “incurable” graves disease.  (Which, by the way, is gone now(holistically, I might add), but I will save that story for another day.  I did not feel so hot, nor did my throat/thyroid.  Cooked foods seemed to sooth my throat.   Although, I’m not sure if this was true, or just my craving my old ways after nearly 3 years of raw foods.  I’ve always been completely honest.  I am all raw for some parts of the year, but not all raw, all the time.  In the winter, I tend to be 80-90% raw.  When my thyroid blew out, I flip flopped that.  I was about 20% raw, and 80% cooked.  After 3 months of eating this way, it showed up on my face!!!!  YIKES!!!   You see, I’m only in DC quarterly, so my friends and colleagues there would notice a change….  I heard things like this:

**WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR FACE?

**YOU LOOK SWOLLEN, OR BLOATED!

**YOU LOOK LIKE YOU’RE ON STEROIDS.

**YOU LOOK LIKE YOU’VE HAD YOUR WISDOM TEETH REMOVED.

**YOU LOOK TIRED.

None of these statements above are something anybody wants to hear….

I’m happy to report that after just 2 weeks of being back to 100% raw, my “face” was able to correct itself.  Remember, your outside is a reflection of what is going on inside…  My face was my indication that my body was really wanting more of natures finest foods—RAW FOODS!!!

These pictures speak for themselves!!!

I have to admit, it is difficult for me to see my bloated face….

So here is a recap of what “happened” to my face:

NOV – DEC – JAN NOW
*more cooked foods that had in years *back to 90-100% raw
*higher amounts of animal products *no chocolate
*chocolate on daily basis *sacred exercise time again
*minimal amounts of exercise *started new exercise program
*sacred exercise times ignored *honoring time for family/self
*too much time in front of computer *home & health
(higher EMF’s and increased sitting)  *attempting: minimal computer time (((difficult with my work: trying)))

I’VE NEVER CLAIMED TO BE PERFECT…. BUT ALWAYS AUTHENTIC!!!!

 

I mentioned recently that everything that 1st appears to be bad, is actually good.  I still believe this.  I looked “puffy” for a reason.  It is to get me back to what I know to be the best way to care for myself…..

 

HOPE THIS HAS HELPED SOMEONE ELSE OUT THERE!!!!!
