View Full Version : 3 month on raw
01-09-2005, 04:03 AM
So 3 months have passed since I started my raw journey. I have not been 100% raw all the time but in total I don't think that I'm too far off.
It has been an amazing journey so far I've gaines so much in terms of energy and the ability of taking care of myself. It's been tough sometimes... but thanks to you guys I've managed to "see the light" and come through it...
Weightloss, I _think_ it's somewhere in the region of -30-45 lbs
Neck: -1.5" (4 cm)
Bust: -6" (15 cm)
Waist: -8" (20 cm)
Hips: -8" (20 cm)
Bottom: -5.5" (14 cm)
Thighs: -6.5" (17 cm)
I started on october 3 so I've been going for aprox 3 months and I'm REALLY pleased with the results. I've never done this well on any other diet I've tried. Maybe because this doesn't feel like a diet... or that I don't consider this a diet, it's more like a new lifestyle.
So a BIG ~~ THANK YOU ~~ To Alissa for her wonderful book and for creating this place and a BIG ~~ THANK YOU ~~ to you all that makes this place to what it is, a wonderful loving caring place where I feel that I can share my ups and downs with people ... friends... that I know will understand me and accept me for who I am!
THANK YOU!! *hugs*

You're doing so great!!!! Congratulations.
I went to your website and saw your 10 week pics : http://raw.milaja.com
What a difference!!!!! You can really see it in your neck and face. Also the side view of your whole body - what a difference.
Other than energy, what other health benefits have you notice in these 3 months?

Keep it up Tanja...you're doing great!!
And you're right, we call this a "diet" just out of habit of using that term for anything that's different than eating the standard "diet"...but it truly IS a lifestyle :D Your meals you prepare look fabulous...you're doing wonderful; both you and your husband!

You really are inspirational. Kudos, and thank you for posting your food pictures. I think most of us love getting to see a recipe and how it looks. For me, tasty food has so much to do with presentation. I think that is why raw is so appealing...what looks more tasty, a bowl of ripe luscious berries, or a twinkie? I find it interesting how processed food manufacturers by using taste enhancers have fooled so many!
Your presence on the board will no doubt inspire many!

:D Thank you guys!
I've posted new pictures on http://raw.milaja.com/progress.html
Other than more energy .... lets see...
* I don't snore anymore, stopped during the first week on raw
* Better sleep pattern. Now I sleep all night through, before I woke up several times every night and always felt tired.
* My mood is better in general.
* Heartburn is 95% gone and have not had any signs of pain from previous gastric ulcers.
* Before going raw I had constant pain in my teeths (not regular toothache) this was so bad that I used to pop pills every day. Completely gone, I can feel a similar pain if I eat too many dried fruit or when I've eaten cooked.

I am so motivated to keep going on - thank you for posting your information. I am especially grateful for the changes that have occured other than the physical (which do not get me wrong are worthy of praise), because it is not just about weight, it is about quality of life. I love your food pictures and to know that the raw can look so good and tast so good is exciting. HAPPY NEW YEAR - STAR!!!! :)
