I was wondering in a health food store and came upon e books.
Alissa cohen, natilia rose, and hallelujah diet. I bought
All 3. The last 2 days I have been so emotional because
My weight has gotton out of control. My eating has also
Gotton out of control. My life feels like it is falling
Apart. I was looking at weight loss drugs but could not
Bring myself to buy it. Last night I cried in the shower
Because I was so agravated with myslef. I just have no
Control over food and I am ashamed I can't lose weight.
I walk around feeling like a failure.

This board can help.
My advise is to just have one large green smoothie a day, and make sure you have at least a small salad before/with each meal. Eat alot of fruit for snacking.
Then slowly start replacing your regular entrees with some of alissa's recipes as you go along.
This board is a wealth of information and support.
Many of us, myself included, have dealt with the feelings you've expressed.
This is a lifestyle that will do so much more than just get your weight under control. You will feel energy at a level that will astound you.
Stick with it. It's simple, but it ain't easy!;)
And it is worth the effort!

*hugs* Don't get so down on yourself dear. One of my favorite quotes is from George Eliot, "It's never too late to be what you might have been." Hold your head up high and get excited about the POSSIBILITIES! You can do it, and we're all here to support you along this path, if in fact you feel the raw food lifestyle is one you'd like to live. I wish you all the best! :)

Miss Unsure: What you think, where you focus... is what you are, who you become.
I would suggest that a powerful first step, if you're ready to take it, would be to re-register here with a DIFFERENT USERNAME. By labeling yourself as "Miss Unsure", you are reinforcing your own self-sabotaging belief that you are "unsure" of your own life.
What about something like: "Miss Skinny Britches" or "Miss Too-Hot-To-Handle"... something that brings images of a healthy, happy body and a healthy, humor-filled mind to life!
Then, get out Alissa's book and read it cover to cover. Absorb it, re-read whatever part strikes you most deeply, and RELAX your mind as you read. When preconceptions about your Body or your Life come flooding into your head, say out loud something that dashes them to pieces, like: "I am a Beautiful, Powerful, Healthy and Courageous Woman. I am Adequate for every challenge that faces me today. I am Abundantly Blessed beyond all expectation."
Report back here when you've tried this things. ;)

I wish you all the luck...I ve felt like that before, and raw food diet can certainly help...However, people tend to go back to cooked more often than not, if they do not address the issues that led them to where they are.
Weight gain itself is a result of unresolved emotions...again, most probably tied to relationships with family members...
