i need to get back on 100%. ive fallen off bc of stress/health/etc., ive allowed myself to not be raw for the past couple of weeks so i could focus my attention on other things, but now its time i hop back on board. ive done it before, but it just seems so hard right now for some reason. im going shoppin tomorrow for groceries, and off ill go. i know what to do, how to do it, etc. ... ive been here quite a few times before and have successfully gone 100% for 1-2 months at a time..but this time with everything else going on im really intimidated for some reason!
any encouragement, suggestions, advice would be greatly appreciated.
thanks so much :)

Dang, I just looked at them and it is SO INSPIRING!
You people are RAWSOME! I can't believe how talented everyone is.
The photos look like they're from a book!
Maybe we should publish a book and donate the proceeds to a charity or something...
I'm in awe...

pineapples are really tasting good right now .
pumpkin seeds fresh from the fall harvest
are also tasting good right now . also
walnuts and almonds .
another food im on right now is brocoli ,
seems to be improving in the markets .
and i remember something i read from
a wise one somewhere that felt good
for me was dont tell family/friends your
doing all raw , its like it puts more pressure
on you making it more difficult .

Just as Luckitri says, don't think about it. Just let it happen. You know you can do it. I know you can do it too. Just think of how good that green smoothie will taste and how good it is for your body and soul. I challenge you to just one day raw. JUST ONE DAY!! Good luck. I'll check back and see how your doing. :D

You can do it! We're all here to support you and each other. I am in the middle of my exams at University and feeling a wee bit stressed, but raw is really helping me focus on my studies. In fact, I feel so good every morning even though I spend most of my time studying. (Except for breaks to read RFT :P)
Just make sure you buy lots of fruits and veggies you love and make some of RP's brownies or Mysticat's ginger stars, or the onion bread.. sprout some lentils, do your thing. Go to a raw food restaurant. :) You can do it!!

Go for it!
why dont u think of your most favourite food, and then create a raw version. perhaps that will give u newfound inspiration :)
What kind of support do you have in your daily life? maybe your close ones can do raw with you?
take care and all the best!

Write down all the things that you LOVE to eat that are Raw.
Write out a list of reasons why you want to stay RAW.
Post copies of this EVERYWHERE !
Keep connected to the site & look at all the luscious food.
You can do it. I have started over so many times I cannot even count. You just get started again & put one foot in front of the next.

sending encouragement. you can do it. just do one step at a time.
there is lots of nice new foods in my supermarket at the moment, i love advocados as you can make yummy desserts out of them.
sometimes i also look at the recipe pic thread, this helps me see what lovely food i can have and gives me ideas and encouragement to carry on.
i think raw is hard during winter, but we can all help each other to keep going.
sending lots of best wishes n fairy dust,
