View Full Version : Got my first compliment since going raw!
02-05-2008, 12:38 PM
Yay! I was walking down the hallway at lunch and ran into a coworker I haven't seen in about a month. He and I started chatting and he asked "have you lost weight? you look great! what are you doing different?" I told him I have been eating a raw vegan diet, and briefly explained what that is. He said I inspired him to get back to the gym. :) He asked me how long I've been doing it, and when I told him about 3 or 4 weeks he was really surprised I had made this change in such a short period of time.
I'm so excited! Granted, this guy is kind of a flirt, but he is the first person who hasn't seen me consistently since I started the program, and he noticed a difference, which is awesome! Since I see myself every day, I don't notice the major changes, if anything I've felt that I wasn't getting results quickly enough. Little things like this give me motivation to continue. wooohooo! :D

That's fabulous! Keep up the good work!

Thanks Katie! I'm so stoked and I didn't know where else to gloat but I thought fellow Rawists would understand. (Especially since I've been so down the last week or do- was detoxing and feeling miserable and bloated, so this really lifted my spirits and convinced me I am doing the right thing for myself and my body).

Fun! It's gratifying to have your progress recognized, and we all like compliments!
I'm looking forward to having my first "stranger" response. My boyfriend sees a change in me, and that's great... but he likes me already!:o
wow! that's awesome! :D i think it's great you explained you being on raw foods to him! i mostly tend to feel shy, if someone were to ask me. :o

I appreciate all of the support! :) I was really stoked about this not because I needed the compliment (although that helped) but because if others are noticing the transformation then it *is* taking place and I *am* doing the right thing. I've done "diets" in the past, and never seen a change, nor has anyone else ever mentioned anything. This time, I made the change for the right reasons (health- not weight loss), and people are noticing! Goes to show this lifestyle plus pure intentions can work magic!!
Thanks again :)
