Hi, my name is Christy and I am new to this whole walk of life. I am 24 and looking to finally get healthy. I have been overweight and unhealthy since I was about 10. Then when I got married (I married a junk food king...God bless him) I gained about 50lbs more in about 9 months. Just before Thanksgiving 06, I read an amazing book, and this opened my eyes to the things that I was putting into my body. Overnight, I completely changed, went a little overboard and became a vegan. I was not ready, and now I am a vegatarian. I then saw Alessa on the Tyra Banks show and she was inspiring. I went to every book store in this dumb town and NO one had her book. I then found it on the web and my copy is on its way. I am SO excited to make this change in my life. It will make a remarkable difference in my life, and hopefully in my husband's as well. Any tips that you could give me would be greatly appreicated! Thanks again-

Congrats! I am just starting too :D Alissa's book was hard for me to find too, and I live in a city with almost 2 million people :p so I guess we'll just have to keep bugging people about it and then it'll start showing up. I also saw her on the Tyra show, and after that 2nd show where that one girl came out and was glowing and healthier then any of the others I ordered her book. I am so excited, after a long wait it gets here in 2 days*jumps up and down*
Once you get her book you should join us on the Feb challenge when you feel ready. Best of luck to you and everyone on this board to the journay of amazing health, we deserve it!

Welcome to raw food. It can be a struggle sometimes but it is SOOOOO worth it!!! I love raw food!!!! I love raw food!!!!! I am recently back on the wagon after 6 months of trying to get back on. Don't give up. Just make better and better food decisions. :D
I am just soaring with happiness these last few minutes even though I have to go to the dentist in a couple of hours and I am SCARED. It must be the raw cacoa in that brownie I just ate. Maybe I need to order some raw cacoa powder and have it EVERY DAY!!!!
I LOVEEEEEEEEEE raw food!!!!!
:D :D :D ;)
