I've been 90% for about 3 weeks and not really experienced all that great stuff everyone is talking about, except a dramatic reduction in my insulin dose. I had not only failed top loose weight, I've gained 5 lbs. My skin isn't glowing, it is red and blotchy, despite never having had skin issues before. But now, I felt RAW ENERGY! I just ran up and down 100 flights of stairs! I live in the East, but that is like a small mountain to me... I know, I know... just a hill to all the West coast folks. I FEEL AWESOME!

I think you need to look at what you said in a different light.
You said you had not really experienced any great stuff. You have DRAMATIC REDUCTION IN INSULIN DOSE. You feel energized. and Last but not least you indicate you feel Awesome.
Perhaps the results are not the ones you had on the top of your list. But, they certainly are on the top of someone's list.
Your doing fantastic. Stick to it

The results you're having show something is definitely up! How amazing with your insulin!
Keep it up and you'll find even more amazing things happening. Your body is working for you - maybe just not where you expect.
How do your clothes feel? The weight might not be real... just water with your body adjusting to such a radically changed diet.
Please post often - we'd love to share your journey.

Thanks guys! I have been struggling with body image issues a lot. It is my first year out of college and despite working out very intensely 4-5 days a week for an hour and walking everywhere (live in a city and do not own a car), I have put on about 30 pounds since graduating. I was a bit too thin in college but it is soo hard to keep weight off working a desk job! :eek:
But today, for the first time in a long time I looked in the mirror and knew a million women would kill for my sexy curves. I struggle with worrying that I'm too curvey, but in reality I'm 5'9 and a tight size 6. I have great definiton in my abs. I should feel amazingly lucky. I just need to remind myself. Sometimes I laugh when the overweight women I know say how much they wish they had my body because I spend so much time hating it. Feels amazing on rare occasions like today when I realize that I AM ONE SEXY RAW FOODIST and being a coat hanger is not the look for me!
Hey could this feeling be a "side effect" of being raw? Yeah for raw self-esteem!
