View Full Version : Day one to a new me!
11-05-2009, 11:51 AM
Hi I am Valerie, I am 18 years old. I found this site while doing some reasearch on Raw and Vegan. Today is my first day becoming raw. This is my last resort before I turn to the Lap Band surgery. I am not overly obese I would say just overweight. I have tried almost every diet since 4th grade. I have always struggled with my weight and health issues. I am hoping that this new lifestyle will help me lose, become a healthier person and give me a new and understanding appreciation for my life and body.
Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hey Valerie! Welcome! Oh, do not go the route of lap band. You can so do this and be so healthy quicker than surgery can help you - EVER.
Get Alissa's book and DVDs. They are powerful tools!

Hi Valerie. It's just great to see young people taking an interest in their health. You are one smart cookie (raw of course) to be investigating this way of eating. You are not alone in your struggle. You will be absolutely amazed at the changes that will take place as you begin to truly nourish yourself with this kind of food - REAL food! Welcome.:D

Hey Valerie...OH MY you came just in the nick of time. Please go see how raw worked for Phillip and he lost 200 lbs. He was headed to lapband. Please....I understand that this surgery creates more problems than it solves. Why not forget the weight, enjoy every minute of what you are eating and shrink exponentially(spell?).....we are here for you!!!
