View Full Version : Hi from Port Orchard
05-19-2005, 11:29 PM
Hi I just joined today. I was raw about 2 or 3 years ago and got sidetracked. Am thinking very strongly of going back and readopting a raw foods diet. I think ultimately I'd feel better. Glad I found your website, and will be posting often. I'm 53, am a mom to 5 and a grandma to 10. I got sucked in to the low carb craze (should know better). I have never felt so badly as I have lately. No time like the present to change, I realize that I am going to be spending the next 2 weeks feeling like crud because of detoxing the cooked food from my system but I guess I need to bite the bullet and do it. Wish me luck, Judy :D :rolleyes: :p

Welcome... I am in Poulsbo so it is nice to have another raw neighbor in this area. Another member who just moved to Montana also lived in Port Orchard, (Sweetgoddess) but she just moved this week.
You will find so much support on this board and there are very friendly people here, good luck to you and again... welcome!
P.S. Lucky you to be a mom of 5 and grandma of 10! I am 46 and have 1 son (the light of my life!) and am hoping for grandchildren in the next year or so... hopefully!!

Good morning Judy, and welcome. You are defintely in the right place for support and encouragement to help get you through the harder days ahead (and hey! - they may not be so hard after all).
I am new to raw foods myself. I have just completed my first week of 100% raw. And I really believe it is one of the best decisions we can make for ourselves. What a gift - you know? To commit yourself to good health and a better way to eat.
Best wishes on your journey,

Poulsbo that is great! Hi neighbor, today I did ok until this evening,then I didn't do so well. Tomorrow I expect to go shopping after work and get in a good supply of fruits and veggies and raw nuts. I was on the go all day today and mostly ate fruit and raw carrots, then bam! when I got home if it fit in my mouth I ate it. :D :eek: I think my biggest hurtle is going to be bread and crackers, after I get past that the rest of it will be a piece of cake. Of course I can always make dehydrated bread, but it takes awhile to sprout the grain then shape the loaf and dehydrate it for 17 hours. I'm glad I never got rid of my equipment, my dehydrator is in the shed, and I have a wheat grass juicer and 2 other juicers, so a part of me must have realized that I was going to have to go back.I know what you mean when you say your son is the light of your life. My son is very precious to me too. I have 4 girls and 1 boy. Hope everyone has a great weekend. Judy :p
