View Full Version : Today is the first day...of the rest of my life!!
06-02-2007, 10:53 AM
I just wanted to post this for all the world to see. I'm tired of yo-yoing back & forth between 100% raw and 70-80% raw, and the cooked food that I do eat is complete (probably literally, LOL!) crap. So today is the FIRST day, a new day, a new beginning of the rest of my life!
My inspiration for this, as I am almost 14 weeks pregnant, is Jinjee. Her new photos up on her blog are so amazing I am in awe - and it's not that she has one of those naturally perfect bodies. She's had to work hard to get to where she is, and her before pictures show that if she had continued with SAD, she would definitely not be who she is today.
My fridge is going to be restocked today with cherries, peaches, watermelon, and the yummiest local strawberries ever - I have no excuse and I don't want to have any excuses. I think a person comes to a place where they've gone back & forth for so long, longing for the SAD food they used to have esp. with the memories with loved ones, etc. I am ready to give that up forever - beginning today.
Here's to a NEW LIFE and a pregnancy that I don't gain 50lbs! :D

Your right... Jinjee's story is amazing every time I read it or surf their website. It really speaks to the power that we women have.

I am 9 weeks pregnant and having a hard time of that and eating more raw food...

You sound like a passionate & determined woman! What a great decision you have made for you & your baby! If I ever have kids one day I want to finally have a healthy relationship with food and be an example for them. Good luck!

Oh wow! Congrads on your pregnancy and what an inspiration for you to follow - Jinjee - she IS amazing as are Storm and their beautiful, healthy, living children - as your baby will be. WOW! You set your temple up to house this new life and oh my how healthy this little one (and you) will be. I knew I was going to like reading this post when I read the title, but to find out you are expecting! How wonderful!!! Many blessing on you and your little one's raw journey!

I have had the pleasure of meeting Sherah and staying in touch with her, and she IS remarkable! GOOD FOR YOU, SHERAH!!!! This was awesome to read. I'm kind of there, too. I go back and forth, due to various "addictions" and stuff, and I am SO MUCH SMARTER than that, honestly. I think it's a self-destructive technique I learned as an adolescent, in a home filled with so much emotional abuse. I am honestly just glad to be here - it was pretty bad and affected me strongly. Now I can see how I hold myself back, almost out of habit. Self-sabotage, whatever you want to call it.... but I'm REALLY feeling different this summer, no matter what I'm doing. Change is in the air, and life keeps getting better and better. And your post is contagious! lol!
So, thank you for posting, and for inspiring me yet again. You are amazing. I think you need to share your age and how you are a functioning, raw and or master cleansing mother of almost SIX, and how your DH travels for work a lot, and how you have a home business... I mean honestly, you are AMAZING, girl!!!!!!

I just checked out the photos. She is beautiful, and I love her honesty and realness about her addictions, etc.
If Storm was my husband, I might have a dozen kids myself. lol! Did I just write that?? He's gorgeous!

p.s. My friend has 2 kids. A newbie and a preschooler who is into animal rights, is vegan, and loves raw. Her newborn will be 100% raw always, it's so much easier to start them that way. :-) She had her child with a midwife in her apartment and it was her easiest/best pregnancy yet. She's about 25 and knows more than most doctors on the matter. I want her to write an e-book because she knows every chemical in "baby wipes" and therefore makes her own. She also uses organic cotton onesies and the like... it's scary, honestly, what is in a lot of "baby" ingredients. Isn't this info she should write about? I think it needs to be out there...
