View Full Version : I did it!
03-11-2006, 08:11 AM
I'm in the bad habit of justifying a bite here and a bite there bu saying "well this won't hurt me." But I've been 100% raw for the last 5 days and last night I went out for the first time. Well no bites here and there- I stayed raw! Thank god that wine is raw!!!! Anyway I'm so proud of myself. I just cannot beleive I did it! The funny thing is I could never justify/want a bite of meat, but I do it so easily with cooked/ nonvegan food. Oh this bite of cookie/cracker... whatever is no big deal. ..

Congratulations! That is very well done. And you have reached a really good way of thinking and dealing with raw. That's really good. :)
I don't know if wine is raw, but I do know that it's not a cooked meal. ;)

wine is raw. Healthy? that's another matter.... :o

Oh, please don't tell me wine isn't healthy!
Meanwhile,rawbin, I loved your post. HOw encouraging, cause frankly, I do the same thing. I was "back home" for a visit for a week and it was pretty hard. I did better than I thought but there was a lot of "it won't hurt me"s. Well, it did. I feel like crap this week.
There is another post that is titled "I just can't do it" or something like that. Rawpriestess had what I thought was a really encouraging post. You might want to check that out if you didn't already. I rec'd my raw daily inspiration from Jinjee today and this really resonated with me.
"Once you hear the reasoning behind raw foods and it resonates with something deep inside, you can never really fully enjoy your cooked food again, even so-called healthy cooked foods! And something is always nagging you to try going 100% raw."
Way to go, rawbin, keep up the great work!!

You're almost at your 30 days, how cool is THAT?
YEAH!!! keep it up -- we're all here with yah.

Hey, I LIKE THAT THINKING!!!!! ;) Way to go on being raw :)

Wine is the drink of the Gods.
It's been around forever.
It is raw.
Enjoy your journey.

congrats for making 5 days 100% :D

Yippeee!! 5 days 100% raw and not eating cooked when your out is a great accomplishment. Almost everytime I ate raw I would cave when I was out. No matter how good my intentions were...there were just too many tempations. I'm hoping after my fast to start hanging out with people again and staying raw! If I could just do that one time I would feel thrilled!

Thanks guys! Yopur support is invaluable.
I was so excited about syrviving my first night out on the town raw, that it motivated me when I went out for japanese yesterday. I did it again! I ordered 3 small salad dishes and felt terriffic about it!
One of my major concerne when thinking about adopting this lifestyle is the impact it would have on my social lufe. I read on the beyondveg site that extroverts should not try to fruitatarian becuase of social isolation. I know it is an anti-raw site, but I beleive in researching both sides of the issue. Well I'm certainly an extrovert and am 21, just getting out of a very long relationship. Time with friends is extremely important to me! I'm so excited that I'm not experiencing isolation or loneliness.
