View Full Version : I am ready to commit.
12-03-2005, 12:56 AM
Well, my body has been screaming at me today & I am ready to commit 100% even though emotionally I am not ready. I am starting Tommorow (Dec, 3rd, 2005.) I have been irritated because my body is wanting more natural things, & alot of the fancy raw dishes give me problems. I am sure after I am raw for awhile my body will be cleaned out & might be able to tolerate some of that stuff better. I had a wake-up call today & had some cooked food today & really realized how it messes w/ me. (I have been raw alot lately.) Anyways, wish me luck!

Here's a question for you ~ What would being "ready", look and feel like to you?
You say you are not emotionally ready. What exactly would that feel like?
Thing I have found is, "being ready" has absolutely nothing to do with living life. It's here ~ now ~ and there's not a darn thing you can do to get ready for it.
Imagine if all the babies in their mothers' wombs at 9 months said, "umm, I'm not ready yet". Life happens. There is no "ready".
Here's a lil secret for you too ~ IF you go 100% and nourish and fuel your physical body with the correct nutrients, your mental/emotional bodies will be nourished along with your physical. How about that? :)
Best to you ~

Oh, I am ready now. I was not emotionally ready, I think because for the past 26 years food has been a very good friend of myne. I could try to analyze it forever, but looking back I just had a feeling of not being ready. Well, it doesn't matter, because I have realized that my body is ready, and I could put it off forever, or just get over the fear & move to something better. Cooked/SAD food has not been loving me back, so why should I love it. Everything clicked in my mind last nite.

believe with all your being that this is different---because it IS!! Yippee!
Food CAN be your intimate and best friend when it is living food. I still use food to comfort myself--only now it is living food. carob torte, blueberry pie, cookies, ice cream.....it comforts me down to my cells and supports who I am because it is alive and energy filled, nutrient rich food. Living Food is good! It is great!
This is different.
Welcome to a whole new world. :)

Well thanks for all your replies. Yes I am excited about it. I was reading a part of Alissa's book this morning & was reading the part in chapter 27 about "Seeing Clearly Can Be Unsettling". Being raw can really open your eyes. I have alot of fears that I have been stuffing, & whenever I would go raw I would think about them. I realized that for me to be happy & have what I really want I would have to make alot of changes. I also think I am kinda afraid of being healthy & at a healthy weight. I have been overweight & unhappy for so long that it almost feels like it is my calling in life. In a weird way it feels "safe", even though it is miserable. I have always been really shy & kept to myself. There was something about that that felt safe, even though deep down I wanted close, happy, real friendships.
Well anyways, thanks again for your replies.
