performance: losing 2.3 lb a week

I'm a 36 year old newly wed who has been on a journey discovering what is right and wrong about health and diet. I've been so out of touch with my own body and eating habits, merely eating for enjoyment and fulfillment rather than health and nourishment. I read these very words and think how meaningless they may appear, because you can't see what light has appeared in my heart through just words typed from a screen. I started this website many years ago with the goal of quitting pop, sweets, and smoking... I was desperate to be thin at 220 pounds. Now I'm 241 on this March 15th 2014. In May 2013 I went raw vegan and lasted a month, got married that following July and began my old habits again. I managed to quit smoking in January 2013, even though I still smoke one occasionally. I read a book that opened my eyes to so much that looms in our foods, and the FDA, and the cruelty to animals. That's when I decided no more meat. I raise chickens and still eat the eggs sometimes, but for the most part I have been fully vegan for 2 months. The longer I go, the easier it becomes. I read labels for the first time. Not the nutritional data, but the ingredients. No dairy, no meat, no fake sweeteners, no preservatives. I still over eat, which I will always battle with, but I'm no longer poisoning myself with dyes and pesticides. It will take a long time to detox, and I'm coming off the hump of the worst part. I'm engaging myself in making things from scratch so that I know what is in it. I'm eating things naturally from the earth. I even created a blog to help promote my journey and spread the wealth of what I've learned. I wanted to be involved in my journey, not just a bystander.
