Hello everyone. Just kind of wanted to introduce myself. My name is Amber, I am 25 years, I live in Boise, Idaho. Today is my first full day raw and I feel great! I am excited to take the 30 day challenge. I have been a vegan for almost a year now and before that I was a vegetarian for about 3 but I never lost any weight. I have done alot of reading and eating raw foods make alot of sense. Just because I was not consuming any meat or dairy products I was still eating alot of white flour and tons of vegan junk food...not good for the body. I am currently weighing in at 240 and although losing weight would be great I am hoping to do some major detoxing. I have pains all over my body and cannot wait to rid myself of them. Anyways I look forward to talking to all of you, I am sure I will have tons of questions. Thanks

Your history with vegan junk food sounds similar to mine. This board is a great support with plenty of people who can offer meal ideas and recipes.

I too was vegetarian for several years and never lost any weight. I am at 79 days raw today and have lost over 30 lbs. I have never felt better in my life. Good luck to you and your journey on the raw trail :)

Welcome to the forum Amber! You definitely chose the right path for getting rid of those pains and gaining vibrant health. I look forward to witnessing your journey. I am over in Montana and wonder if it is freezing cold in Idaho too?
My best wishes to you on your 30 day challenge.
