I'm so excited! I was eating raw for the last 5 days (for the first time in my life) and I have one hour to go on my water fast. Then I will have mangos for dinner. I've been a vegetarian for 16 years and always wanted to go vegan and when I was looking at vegan recipes on the internet I came across the raw food diet. This was about a year ago and now I feel ready. I have gained weight, not a lot, but enough to feel uncomfortable and there's no way I'm steppin' into a bikini like this :eek: My DH will never go for raw eating, he doesn't even want to give up cheese, but he will drink the green smoothies. The same goes for my 2 sons (17 & 12). I have about 10 lbs. to lose and a lot of energy to gain! My skin is already clearing up :D What an awesome forum I have found, I am so grateful.

Thanks everyone! I got on the scale today and I have lost 3.5 lbs. I really feel great and could care less about coffee anymore. :p We went to a street festival today in Fallbrook and ended up at an Irish Pub for lunch. They had absolutely nothing for me on the menu, not even salad :confused: So I had a beer, I know :o , bad. But I told myself I would only cheat with beer or wine and stay on track with the food. That was just a decision I made. I love my beer and wine! My DH comes home today, that's when it will be hard to stick with it, wish me luck!
BeadedGraces, You're so right, green smoothies are a great start for my kids and DH. How are you doing on your raw journey, did you just start?
