I am new to this forum (from Washington state about 1 hour nort of Seattle). Anyone out this way? Tried raw in 94, but had no help and got too thin. Now have more books to read. Detoxing (colon, liver, etc) helps alot as well as juicing). Is there anyone out there who is like me (doesn't want to lose weight)? I don't want to get too thin! Suggestions?

Welcome Sweethome! I am also in Washington and close to Seattle. I live out on the Olympic Peninsula.
This is a great site and I know you will have a lot of fun reading and learning from everyone here!

Hi sweethome and welcome!
About losing weight. Well, if your body is full of toxic wastes - much of it stored in fat cells, you will lose weight. Sorry, I know you didn't want to hear that. I didn't want to lose either, but it just happened as part of the detox. I lost weight very rapidly in the first three weeks. Now at 5 weeks raw, it has remained stable for one week. At first it was tough to get used to, but now I kind of like the lighter me! I hopefully will start slowly gaining some.
Why don't you want to lose weight? Is it what other people may think? Funny thing about me is that people were very 'concerned' about me for those three weeks. Now, I have people asking me about the diet, and telling me how they are eating more fruit and veggies because of me. Actually you may end up being an inspiration! I know I have.
Hopefully rawtruth will chime in. She is great at getting you to feel good about yourself and be happy with your health!
