I bought Alissa's book last year and have been trying to stay raw ever since. I'm from the Vancouver, WA/Portlnad OR area. I can usually manage for abt 2-3 days and then there's some sort of temptation or dinner/date etc. and it's back to the same old sad food and overeating.
I'm just looking for a coach or buddy to help me stay accountable

Have you thought about doing the 30 Day Challenge? That is one way to be in touch with others, write your daily log.
Also I find just staying in touch with this Forum helps........
I wish you everything you need to Stay RAW.......Welcome to MY World....

ask yourself this 'Are you really, really willing to let go of cooked food and whatever issues you have surrounding it?'
I ask you this because, for me until I had decided that I just didnt want to feel like **** anymore and burry negative emotions with addictive food patterns and i decided i absouletly just cud not and wud not go on the way I was going(round and round in a v.circle), I couldnt stay raw for the life of me. I would feel so uncomfortable with my emotions if I couldnt eat/have 'whatever'. I didnt want to look in that closet. But then I did.
Unfortunaltely, you have to go through the pain to get the gain. (the detox-ugh!)
I live in Edinburgh Scotland and I have just met a raw buddy whos a great guy and I believe this happened because I am actually ready to raw.
YOU CAN DO THIS. YOU SO CAN.
Thousands of people do it, I am doing it and believe me so can you.
Think of what you are GAINING because in truth, you are giving up NOTHING.You are gaining EVERYTHING.
You will meet a raw buddy. It will happen. Follow your heart. Dont get me wrong its hard - but trust me when I say this, if I can do it ANYONE CAN.
Lots of love to you :p

Hi everyone -
I am so discouraged with myself, I do the very same thing Charismatic. That is why your post caught my eye. I wake with the intention of doing well and then something comes over me and I lose it. It is the cooked food addiction and all the emotional eating. I am so morbidly obese. My life depends on me losing this weight! What is wrong with me? I guess I don't think enough about myself to take care of myself. I will start again today and I hope you all with be with me. I have read the reply posts from everyone and I am starting again - thanks for being there.
