View Full Version : Resisted temptation
08-19-2006, 10:28 PM
Today/yesterday at church (today by the clock, yesterday by God's reckoning since the day begins at sunset) the pastor's wife invited me to lunch, but told me that there wasn't enough salad but there was lasagna. Hmm, I thought. I went into the room and sat down. A friend of ours remarked "You're losing weight!" (She was mixing Spanish and English and pronouncing both with the same accent, so it took me a while, and sometimes I had no hay dÃ*a what she said ;)) I told her I've been eating raw and handed her a couple of books. I poured a cup of lulo smoothie and waited behind some other people and took nearly all the salad that was left, which was about half my usual lunch, but no lasagna or chips :)

Good for you pierre I know temptations are tough I am pretty good at staying away from all that stuff it's not things like that that I have problems with it's more ice cream ect. Had maybe 3 slip ups since I started raw in Nov 2005 and still struggle on occasion but I am slowly getting there. Other than that it's just good healthy raw foods for me. keep up the good work.

You achieved two things.
You stuck to your principals and you spread the word.
