View Full Version : Ack! I had a SAD attack!
08-25-2006, 11:03 PM
Today, I binged on SAD...and I feel SOOOOOO tired. I had soda, sushi, candy, and pizza:eek:. It tasted good...but I don't feel good. I felt so sluggish and lazy. I had no idea how SAD affectsthe body until today. I feel bad, but I must pick myself up, and keep on going, striving to be 100% raw:D.
Any raw fooders out there that live on Long Island. I feel as if I'm the only raw fooder in town. I'm going to a Raw Meetup in Baldwin next month. Can't wait to mingle with people that actually eat healthy.

Pick yourself up and the next time, ask yourself is it going to be worth it? Then binge on a bag of Carrots and you will not be sad or feel sad or have sad in your body.
Hang in, it will only get better. Keep snacks handy and grab them even if your body is crying for something else. You are the BOSS of your body, you tell it what to do. Congratulations on TOMORROW BECAUSE IT IS ANOTHER DAY TO START ANEW.......................

I am cheering you on! Your going to have a wonderful raw journey!

I don't feel so good now. I am NEVER touching chicken again:eek:..or any meat. Cravings aren't worth feeling sick over and getting "the runs". Tomorrow, I will start from scratch and try again. I ate raw up until I went to work at 4pm today. Just got home. Ugghhh!

-Somewhere between all or nothing is the place that is right and comfortable for YOU to start from. Don't hold yourself to anyone else's ideal. Make small goals and keep them. If you can't....make smaller goals....until you have psychic traction. You'll succeed.

we all fell off the waggon at one time or another and as long as you keep crawling back on, it's good.
I failed big time and have a VERY rough July behind me. In August I finally swore to myself to be not so perfectionist, take it easier and give myself some time and credit.
For me, transitioning is better than going cold turkey and now I am doing so much better and don't feel deprived or anything, just good. And the funny thing is now that I would allow myself a certain percentage (about 10 to 15%) not raw, I don't really "use" it up.
David says the right thing, make smaller goals. So go step by step and don't be too hard on yourself.
I love your avatar, it so fits your thread - this is exactly the face I would have when being attacked by a pizza :D

I like cats, so that's why I picked the avatar that I have. The pizza was sitting there, it was as if it was taunting me. Like the episode of Martin where he thinks the sweet potato pies are calling for him to eat them:eek:

I know what you mean!! I do the same thing, you are not alone. Just get back on the wagon when you can!
A friend of mine is in the Baldwin meetup group and she is awesome. Her name is Christine and you will love her.

I know there's a raw meetup next month, on September 10th. I plan on going to it. Great opportunity to mingle with people that eat like we do.

Where is the meetup? Is it something formal for a certain group? My mother and I go out to long island all the time. She loves to drive to Jandi's for the raw patties :)
