View Full Version : I was doing so good

I was doing so good and then I ate one thing cooked and it just set off all these cravings that I hadn't had in a long time! That reminds me why I don't do 90% cooked. Or why it is that it's more important what you don't eat. Because that last 10% leaves the door open and makes it so much easier to fall off! And I'm paying for it now with my colitis. Things have gotten worse. I'm going to fast tomorrow. And I'm really glad that I'm going to CHI on Sunday. Then where won't be any cooked food for 2 weeks for me to fall of onto.

That's great to just acknowledge it and move on. You're certainly not alone! I'm sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. I'm proud of you for doing better. What is CHI? Best wishes.

CHI= creative health institute. it's a raw foods healing retreat in Michigan. I wanted to do Alissa's retreat, but I wrote and I guess they don't do them anymore. They recommended the 5 day teacher training. I would love to do that, but it's not long enough to really get healed and not appropriate for someone that's really sick like me.

I believe it to be true, (that you fail your way to success) because I am int he same boat (fll off the wagon, so to speak) and I believe the same thing ( about the ten percent) I liken my raw experience to my experience with AA - you want to quit drinking, go to AA. You still want to drink 10% of the time, well, you get my point. I am new to these boards, not new to raw, and don't want to ruffle any feathers as everyone's path is their own, but to me, addiction is addiction, in what ever form.
btw, it was 9 million times harder, for me, to quit cooked foods than drinking!!!
