Hi, I have a question about weight loss. I've been 100% raw for a whole week and was 75%-100% raw for 3 weeks before that and haven't lost any weight. I know it can take a while, but I was wondering if anyone else has had this experience if they already had a healthy diet and are only 5-15 lbs over their healthy weight. It seems to me that the more overweight you are and unhealthy your diet was before, the more you will lose at first... but shouldn't I be experiencing something at least proportional to my size and health? Like maybe a lb or two? Don't get me wrong, I feel great and have been eating so much better (and more) than when I was struggling with calories and I haven't gained anything, but it would be nice to lose. I am 5'2" and weight 135, but my goal is 120, which is a very good size for my height. Has anyone else who was already in good health and only a little overweight had this problem? I do know I need to get back into a regular exercise routine, that could make all the difference.
