View Full Version : Hey Everyone!!!

I thought I would post who I am and who I want to be. I am a 32 year old SAHM/FULL Time college student/ wife/mom on 10 month old who has so pretty high goals set for myself this year. Reasons for going high raw
1. I want my cuteness back. ;) Yep!! I am that vain. I looked in the mirror and I see a tired, puffy, no glow person staring back at me. I want to be cute again. And I want to look better naked....well that and it is a goal to wera a little black bikini with NO SHIRT to the beach this coming summer.
2. I want to prove that I can age gracefully. Unforntunately, I am in the age group where women begin to question their looks and turn to alternatives to get the answers. NOT FOR ME!!! I want to look back in 5, 10, 20 years and prove them all wrong.
3. I want more energy to enjoy the life I have been slowly building. I want to spend more time with my family, the outdoors.
4. Regain my health. This is really what is comes down to for me. I am obese!! I am chronically tired, my joints hurts horribly, I have candida that just won't go away, even with medical treatment. Since I had my son, my menstrual cycle has been off and the worst I have ever experienced. We are talking laying on the floor and crying pain here. My list could go on and on. I have been to the doc and they all prescribe meds or shots or the usual "Lose some weight!!" Duh, that is why I am seeking your help. So I am taking control of my life and I need to start undoing the damage now!!!
I look forward to reading more about the RAW lifestyle. Thank you all in advance for the advice and help.
Welcome! I know you will love it on this website. Congratulations on taking the first step to regain some ground in your life. You can do this and in no time you will be in that little bikini again!

Glad to see you here. When I was in my late 20's & early 30's I began reading about healthy lifestyles and sporadically over the years practiced what I read but never actually adopted a consistent plan and over the past 10 years.......all of my 50''s....things became totally out of control with stressful lifestyle and eating and drinking being the major entertainment. I am now terribly overweight and my husband has very serious heart problems. As of Jan 2 we went 100% raw and began exercising everyday. We have been shocked at how easy it was to make this transition and the biggest surprise of all is that we have not had one hunger pain or strong craving since day one. For us, this is truly a "life & death" matter and I think how differently things might be had I changed my lifestyle back in my 20's when I first became aware of healthy eating. By the way, vanity is a good motivator. I want my cuteness back also! I wish you the very best!

I am Cute, as I have said before, a lady told me the other day I was but I was graceious and said thanks.......
And you know I am PROUD of you joining the "CUTE CLUB" It's all about being Cute, making your body "CUTE" on the inside as well as the outside. Your Body will be grateful and your Cute self will be around a LONG Time.
At 32 you don't have to go back too far but always be child like in your activities, Jump, skip, walk, run........MOVE...... Incoperate these moves into your daily activities. Put on your favorite record and dance.... that's how the girls in the vidioes got and keep their bodies, by shaking everything that move.
Remember......YOU are your NO. 1 Cheerleader. "As a woMAN thinkith, so is She......So My friend..YOU are ALREADY CUTE, you just have to get rid of the brush you are hideing behind and STEP FORTH.....
Tell another Woman how BEAUTIFUL she is, PASS IT ON.........
I wish you everything you need to Stay RAW........Welcome to MY World.....

I like that... :-) to just come out and say "I want my cuteness back." :p that is cute....and sweet...
I have had issues with being "cute" and feeling like my looks were not my own..like when you are /look "attractive" your looks become public property...and sometimes people (men) assume that you are somehow looking "cute" for them...not for your self....
I honestly think I have gained weight and avoided looking/being my best because I did not want to deal with other people's "stuff" surrounding issues of appearance...lol... I kind of tried to opt out of it somehow...( issues of childhood abuse present also) but in reality...even when we opt out of looking "cute," we are looking like something..lol..and people project their interpretations onto that...so..there seems to me to be no sane choice other than to do what feels best/is best for/to you..and not worry about what others make of it...
sorry to get a bit off-topic...it just got me thinking....:o
So..here is to us all being/owning our own beautiful/cute/healthy/whole selves....:cool: ;) :D .....
yup. I used to be cute too. I want my cuteness back and Im 32. I was watching a movie lastnight and there was this cute girl in it and she had my old body. At least now I know where it went! LOL! :p
no, seriously-I want my cuteness back and Im embarking on a raw quest to find it. :cool:
