View Full Version : Raw September - will someone help me?
09-01-2006, 01:41 AM
I am calling (begging) for help because I had a weekend of eating cooked recently for my husband's birthday (any excuse!!!) and am now having trouble getting back to the raw. I'm great all day and then in the evening, have cooked and then end up on a binge! :eek:
If someone would agree to a 'raw September' I would be able to do it because I will have made a commitment to someone else, and I am a woman of my word, so I know I will not fail! :D It would give me the resolve I need! Will someone help me, please?
Yours in eager anticipation!!!

I have been RAW since June 3rd and I plan to be RAW in September also. So I am with you..........I am RAW for LIFE>>>>>>>>>>
Take it one step at a time. You might have to get rid of all the cooked food you have. Always keep RAW food handy and tell yourself that you must eat the RAW first and then see if you want cooked.
Daily remind yourself how much you LOVE RAW food. Remind yourself why you went RAW and your results. The darkest hour is just before dawn (your breakthrough)

I feel so positive now. My day has been 100% different from yesterday...raw is so easy!!! All because I have your support! :D
I am so in for a raw September! Today is my first day trying to go 100% raw, i know itll be hard, but i love to eat healthy & with such a good support system i know i can do it. I am very excited about the results. I used to be such a health nut but have wandered way off path somewhere, and i dont know why i decided to give into these bad ways, but I want to make a commitement to go back to the way i used to live. Good luck to everyone else.

Hi Mimi...if we make a commitment to each other, it will be a lot easier for us. I am going on holiday tomorrow, for a week, and because I know I will be letting you and everyone else down if I don't stick to raw, I know I will do it easily! There is power in numbers, power in the people on this site...it's the most supportive site I've ever been on!
You can do it, I can do it...go to the photo and journalling section and set yourself some goals too and enjoy every minute of your transformation...I'm going to!

I am with you! I just saw Pual Nison yesterday, and became very encouraged! Probably the most motivating for me was that he said that it is a sin to have this knowledge and not use it! After hearing him speak, I remembered why I became raw in the first place, as well as how it makes me feel. He also talked about the living enzymes in food, and how vital it is to keep your fruit raw, fresh, ripe and organic! He was an amazing speaker, very uplifting and motivational! I made it through day one today! You can too! Don't beat yourself up over it. Move on, and let's get healthy!
