View Full Version : Not wanting to loose weight...
12-11-2006, 01:21 PM
I noticed many of you loose weight when changing to raw foods... My concern would be that I would loose weight and I am 89 lbs with no weight to loose. I have many food intolerances/allergies, wheat,dairy,eggs,corn...so I am already limited in my eating habits. Anyone here also started doing raw as a tiney person and found that you didn't loose much weight? Thanks any info would be of help to me since I am new new and haven't started raw... Alisha

It takes a lot of work to stay raw and not lose weight. I know. I am about 90-95 pounds and the doctor wont allow me to play sports until I am 100. I have always been tiny and have to stuff myself daily on raw in order to even maintain. Make sure you get proper nutrition and (even though I am not allowed to) I would get some exercise...focus more on strength training than on aerobics....as long as you are getting enough to eat. You may end up gaining weight but it will be nice muscle weight...you'll look slender and toned and gorgeous :). It takes some adjusting but it can be done if you are willing.

Hey Lunar*Fey, have you ever considered competitive swimming? It's not a contact sport, but it sure will give you a workout. Best of all, you're competing with yourself.... you're always trying to beat your best time!

Actually yes! I have always LOVED swimming and have always been rather good at it. I took swimming lessons when I was little and made it easily through the levels. I haven't taken swimming lessons in a long time though and then last year I joined the swim team...it was hard because the other swimmers had been swimming competitively since they were like 10. But I did alright for a newbie on a team of experience people. I am really sad but am not on the swim team this year because the doc wont let me, even though I weighed less last year and was on it. :/ . Maybe if I get my weight up a bit more I'll be able to join half way through the year...heh. I don't know but it would be awesome. Of course I just had the stomach virus and that didn't help!
