Hey! I made it! I was sitting for half a day close to the SAD food court observing people eating everything except RAW and i didn't have major problems with that!!! I had 2 bananas, 3 cups of green soup ( two different types - gee i really like my soups) , some dates and a generous amount of cashews! I feel good so keeping things under control is not a sacrifice - it is fun! I am relaxed - not tired, in good spirit, but i also make sure that nothing and nobody bothers me - i managed to control conversation with negative peorson, avoided few situations and thoughts that could lead to something less positive, but most of all no cravings and no overeating, no empty feeling.
I am emotional eater so if things around me are too stressful i end up eating. I wonder if i will be able to recognize the moment of weakness or crushed spirit -i would like to observe it before i will be affected and control it. Half of those 70 lb are the result of eating when sad or upset, 1/4 from age, thyroid, sedentary life 1/4 lack of motivation to change things, getting back to the easy road, buying food
Anyway - i have manage to stay raw today and it was pretty easy. The key for me is to keep active and positive, no stress!
