View Full Version : trying to return
03-11-2007, 11:49 PM
hello everyone, its so nice to be a part of this site. I've been trying to go RAW for quite awhile but keep stumbling about. Tomorrow I thought about tring to fast for awhile (master cleanse to be exact) and my goal will be to become 100% RAW by April 1st. My husband is very supportive and since I have you guys it will be easier. I'm not going to lie, I've visited this site on a daily basis but was afraid to commit and I think thats were the problem lies.
But here I am and there you have it. I'll be looking into the fasting threads and looking for all the encouragement I can. Thanks 2 Alissa (I haven't yet bought her book, but plan to) and knowing that there are sane people out there who believe that everything we need, that our loving creator provided, has been there the whole time. Good health to all.

Thank you for returning. Blessings and joy on your path to excellent health.
I too was afraid to commit because of my fear of failure, but I have taken the plunge and found a whole new way to live and raw buddie that got started with me. So happy returns.

Hey, welcome! Every time I tried to fast to go raw I'd wind up like a coiled spring and pig out bad. I kinda slowly went raw Alissa style, with just way too much raw food around for my security blanket. Either way you get here, it's a wonderful place to be!

I love your name, by the way.;)
I hope that your fast is progressing smoothly. I, too, have had challenges to my staying on the raw path. This is my second round, and this is the Permanent one!!!
I was 100% raw for a year, and I had NEVER felt better! A host of circumstances occurred and I fell off, and boy, did I regret it after 18 months of SAD I was ready to COMMITT FOR LIFE!!
I know that staying RAW is imperative for my optimal health,
Best wishes to you!! May your journey toward your optimal health be a wonderful one! :)

I too am new to the Raw Food world and also doing the Master Cleanse fast as we speak. It is pretty weird to hear that someone out there is doing the exact same thing that I am doing at the exact same time, so I encourage you to press on. This is my second day on the Master Cleanse fast and things have been going well. I did it a couple of years ago for the full 10 days (91/2 to be exact), but have not been able to commit to the full 10 since then. I am wanting to go this distance this time in preparation for the raw food lifestyle. I ordered Alissa's book this morning and I am anxious to get it. If you need any encouragement or support, feel free to let me know. Welcome and good luck!

well it was harder then expected, I have to use my brain a lot at work and had trouble concentrating so I ate... and ate... and ate...SAD!!!!!! I know I'm sending my body into havok and I feel awful but all is not lost. I was thinking that I started to much to fast (by fasting right away), but the April challange is upon us, and I figure I can just try going 100% RAW because my main concern with fasting was to clean out my body, which I'll let it do naturally. Thanks to all of you for all the encouragement. You understand me :cool: Since I'm joining the challange can anyone tell me how to start a blog? If I have direct accountability then I can stay focused. HELP

Yeah, sounds like your system is like mine and perhaps not ready for fasting yet. I figure I'm doing awesome just eating Raw for now and even then I'm not perfect but almost strictly Raw. Just glad you're back. It's not a bad thing to discover how horribly addictive SAD food is, just part of the learning journey of Raw-dom. :o
