View Full Version : Stuck at Day 10 - Trouble

I need ideas, motivation, insight...
I'm stuck at day 10. Day 1-9 was 100% raw. Then Day 10 hit, I had 2 bites of my son's hot dog. Decided to do Day 10 over again the next day. That day I had a peice of pizza and some stir fry. Today again, Day 10, did great until tonight, had a few bites of rice.
Will I ever make it past Day 10???
What's going on here??

You need to watch out for the first bite of SAD. Its kinda like an alcoholic trying to get free of booze in that its not the second drink that gets em -- its the first sip and thats the only one that needs to be avoided.

yes, i totally agree with ez.
You must avoid the first bite, otherwise you can stop it. It happens to me too!!! hahaha. But now i'm ok and goind on. Just keep in mind that's the best for you and your health, i know is hard, but keep trying and good luck!

I got stuck on day 14. This is so much easier said than done but just avoid SAD food altogether. Don't even think about taking a bite or about the taste. For me, if I start thinking about the food then I get in a dangerous situation. So I refocus on things that are good for me like watermelon, chocolate banana milkshake, etc. Don't give in to the mind games.:o
Well, today is a new day. Put the rest in the past.
Just a thought: how about starting the kids on raw too? They deserve the best health as well. My kids aren't exactly thrilled with this but I am trying to prevent adult diseases for them. Kind of sea it as my parently duty.:)

Once you begin to focus on the good things that RAW brings, there is no turning back. Since I am older than most of you, I had more physical situations that could improve and they did so quickly. I had suffered from depression for at least 20 years, and maybe more. Had a nervous breakdown 25 years ago . . . . Within 3 days of green smoothies there is no more depression. I have never felt so elated in my life. Hopefully no one else had such an obvious situation to deal with, but in my life it has been a blessing because there is absolutley no way now that I will not be RAW.
There is not enough cooked chocolate brownies on this earth to make me want to go back!

Day ten use to be a rough one for me too then it was day 14 or 15, can't remember.
I stopped coutnign accept when I want to chronicle exceptional weight loss.
So now everydays goal is to have a healthier more life sustaining intake and actionthen the day before.Sometime that just means getting in 80oz of water on 105 degree days, which my body is so not use to. other days it means 25 situps and extra kale in my smoothies.

How about just calling tomorrow Day 11 and have a rawking day? :)

Eeewwwww not hotdogs? The pizza I understand, pizza is like some kind of drug for me. I can never stop at one slice. Take a deep breath and when you eat something, eat a piece of fruit. (c:
I will not engage you in a discussion of nitrates and childhood leukemia, but you might want to do some research. Informed decisions and all that.
blessings and peace, Pam

Thanks everyone for the advice!!! I've made it past Day 10, finally!!
I now understand that I need to try real hard to avoid that first bite! And try to do something else instead the minute I think I might be tempted. :)
