Week Of Raw Conclusion

Week Of Raw Start Weight - 230 Lbs.

Week Of Raw End Weight - 225.2 Lbs.

I did it! I got through the week of raw and lost weight! Nearly five pounds off, It's better than I was expecting. Overall the past week was really good, even with the hot dog slip up. The first three days were the worst, mostly because of the sugar crash headache, but after that it was actually pretty easy. Plus I've been sleeping better. I feel good, and I have a normal energy level. I didn't feel deprived, I didn't feel sorry for starting it. I feel amazing. The past few days I've been thinking about how I want to continue. I think the best course is the same as I've done for the past week, only adding in some meat. I'm going to cut out grains almost entirely, and sugar completely. I don't ever want to repeat the first three days of headaches and no energy. I'm going to incorporate a daily bike ride as the bare minimum for exercise. And twice a week I'll be doing weight training. Today might end up being an exception to exercise, I woke up with a little bit of a scratchy throat. I'm praying that it doesn't turn into anything worse like a cold. I don't like being sick, but I really hate being the one responsible for getting everybody else sick. Another thing I want to implement is rewards. I won't reward myself with ice cream or cookies, but I might with something like a bottle of nail polish or a new piece of jewelry. I was thinking every ten to fifteen pounds get something small. If you have any ideas put them in the comments, I'm always open to a different perspective. I might not always try it, but I'll always think about it. My next post will be Wednesday, so I'll see you then!


  1. Awesome results for a first week, and I think your plan going forward is a good next step. Praying for you on this journey! Congratulations on your week one results!

  2. Taylor! Your cousin Kim here. Your grandma shared your blog with me, and I'm so glad she did! 1. I am so proud of you for investing in your health now. It's similar to (but better than) investing for retirement! You are wise to start now. 2. Your goals, motivation, and willingness to share your journey shows great maturity that puts "teenage me" to shame. Praying the Lord will use your journey to inspire others and be a testimony of His grace. 3. Please remember you are on a journey, not a tightrope! The cross covers you. He is for you. He is a good good Father. He loves you more than you love yourself.
    Excited to follow along on your journey. Praying for you. May the Holy Spirit enable you on this adventure!

    P.s. Have you heard of carb-cycling? More or less, it's eating grains only certain days but not everyday to use them in a systematic way rather than eliminating for good. Might be something to consider if you ever feel like introducing them back into your regular diet.

  3. Well done BBB XXX
