View Full Version : New from Southern California!

I just wanted to introduce myself ~ and thank everyone for their posts. I've been reading them for the past couple of weeks... trying to decide if this is for me or not. Since you guys are all so stinking encouraging... I took the plunge (or as you'd say it, the CHALLANGE).
Believe it or not, I am on my fourth day raw! I can not believe that I actually made it this far! I am so excited about change! Scary but thrilling! I just ordered (oh MY!) Alissa's book and CD, a spiral slicer (I LOVE pasta!), and, hold your breath -- a blender! Yikes. I'm experiencing some buyer's freakout since I never spend that much money! But, I really want this. I want health.
So, YAY for me!!
As you can imagine, I'm floundering -- but, I'm sure once I get my stuff everything will fall into place. I just hate that I have to wait a week or so before things arrive... that's a long time to hold my breath!

Welcome! You'll be fine. The money you are spending now? You will so reap it's benefits. Your health is worth it.
Drink green smoothies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello and Welcome! Good for you on 4 days! It can be tough, but if you do enjoy "cooking" or creating dishes, it can also be kind of fun. I've really enjoyed trying things that I've never eaten and creating dishes that I would have never thought of creating! The forums do offer a lot of support and ideas too, so don't be afraid to ask for help.

Once you get Alissa's book and DVD you'll really not even think floundering....watch the DVD first, it gets you excited and able to make several dishes until you can read her book....I'm excited for you.

Hi Angela from So-Cal.
Welcome, fellow Southern Cal-Girl!
This is a great site. Everyone is so supportive and helpful. This has been the place for me that helped me become RAW. So, much information, too. I wish you strength and vitality in your journey :).
I'm above Temecula in a place called Aguanga, ever heard of it? (most people havent')

I started raw on Saturday and I'm loving it. I just received Alissa's book and have read 80% of it so far.
Its a great way of eating and I love it. I feel so free and great.
I love this forum and it has a wealth of information to guide you on your journey.

I am in So Cal also - WLA. I'm also a newbie with almost 2 1/2 months raw. If you have questions about local stores, etc., feel free to ask. I might know or know how to find out. I've done a lot of research and have spoken with a lot of people in the area. I'm still finding out about new places all the time. It's so much fun in So Cal as we have a lot of options.
