The good news is, most of that 14 pounds is probably food that is stuck inside you and thick mucus trying to insulate you from absorbing it...It should come off, or err out, pretty easily=)

I'm sorry to hear about the rough times. Hoping that they get better for you soon. (((HUGS)))

Oh, honey - I am the girl who gains weight like NO ONE else...
I am currently at my heaviest in 1.5 yrs after 3 wks of "cheating" that became 3 wks of 50/50 RAW vs. SAD (at best)
I don't even LIKE SAD food!!!! But I've been traveling and without my Vitamix and when I'm not getting my regular GS's, I pretty much go into starvation mode and eat EVERYTHING in sight.
Next vacation, I'm bringing my Vitamix and staying somewhere I have KITCHEN space. :D
I love raw!!! SO excited about getting home in two days!!!

Yeah... holiday parties!! Only one more to go...
But next Monday will be: the Master Cleanse. I will go for at least 15 days, then see. I hope to go longer, though.

Zaphirah, I lost my grip on raw for less than a week and I gained 10 pounds!!!
It really isn't the calories. I am back to raw today and feeling better already.
I was amazed at how eating just small amounts of wheat and sugar caused me to become obsessed with food again! I was sucked right back into compulsive eating. Thank goodness for raw foods. I'm glad to hear you are back to raw too!! I know we can do it! :)

*holds up hand high in the air* and fasting for three days, i've already released over 7 pounds.
so... it doesn't stay if you replace it with something healthy!

Don't you worry. DON'T EVER ALLOW GUILT to dominate you. If you make bad choice, don't tell yourself story about it and do it from a responsible place but NO GUILT. Otherwise telling yourself excuse for that choice or using guilt will add to the power of addiction. FOCUS ON YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENT. Hey, you are still interested to eat raw food, this is an accomplishment. Learn from your mistake. Such what kind of food did you eat that make you fell the wagon sweet or salt, then have a plan to be prepare and have emergency snack in hand all the time.
Failure, is only opportunity to learn even more AND GET EXPERT. Focus also on your health and let go the attachment of losing weight. Losing weight is the side effect of health. Focusing on health, help us to see the result right of way.
It took me two years to quit coffee, but i was getting better at it all the time. One major lesson was never to make exception and not to under estimate the power of coffee over me. I succeed to quit coffee when i followed Gary Zukav advice of feeling my physical pain of saying no to coffee. I found out that i was craving coffee when i was bored. So, knowing this, it helped me to do something about this boredom.
COOK food is addictive and this experience did tell you about it. Green smoothies heals addiction and helped me to get back on track with raw food.
YOU CAN DO THIS, YOU DESERVE IT AND YOU DESERVE TO BE HEALTHY. Congratulations for doing raw food, BELIEVE IN YOU, YOU ARE A WINNER. This raw food is a journey sweet heart, and this is amazing that you are willing to give another try. Congratulations!

Exactly where I am on this journey, I could have been writing this! And as mentioned getting back to the raw, even as slowly as I've just begun, things are already getting better. And they will continue to get better as I get back to the right mindset about where I want my health. I know we will get back to it ...

You are not alone. Cookies at the office, out of town visitors and Christmas Parties have all taken their toll. I have decided that I need to learn to make some raw cookies in order to counter act the holiday onslaught of sweets. If I can find a recipe or invent some raw cookies, I can at least make some vegan ones so that I am not getting too far off the path (I try to eat a vegan diet for spiritual reasons as well). I plan to be ready by next year.
I am just looking at it as a learning experience and not a failure. I made choices and I can live with my choices whether good or bad. I'm not into beating myself up too much, I just repent and move on.
