Hi everyone, this is my first message. I just signed up tonight. I have been reading all of the posts for a week now, and felt ready to join in! I will tell you a little about myself. I am married and a mom to three children ages 20,13 and 9. I am a Special Education teacher. I work with 7th grade students with various disabilities. My experience with the raw food diet is that I first heard of it in August and was so interested that I jumped into 100% raw overnight. I lasted 2 full months at 100%. I loved how I felt and how I was beginning to look. Then I don't know what happened, but I slipped into cooked foods (cold weather I think) and since Oct., I have been back and forth, back and forth. Well, I am ready to go back to all raw. I like the feeling of beauty and energy it brings. I am not worried about weight, I am 5'3", 115 lbs. ( I was however at an all time high of 126 lbs. before my 2 month raw phase) So, here I am---I look forward to communicating with all of you!
