Sarah from Arizona!
Hey, my name is Sarah. I live in Arizona & have tried raw food before but ended up failing terribly. I am way more determined this time around and plan to make it happen! I have never felt worse than I do right now. I was vegetarian for 4 years and vegan for 1, and last February I was having a hard time and did some unpredictable and strange things, and I started eating meat again. (worst decision of my life!) Anyways, as of a month ago I have been vegetarian again, and the past week I have been eating vegan. By the beginning of September I plan to be mostly raw if not 100%. My body is full of soo much junk right now, and my depression has gotten progressively worse over the last year. Not to mention I have gained about 20 pounds. I desperately need to change things, and I'm hoping this forum will help me out. I gave up on myself and let myself go and stopped caring. I feel like I have failed myself and everyone around me.
Welcome!! I wish you the best of rawesome health! Don't look at it as a failure - look at it as getting your canvas right before you paint your masterpiece :D
btw...I was at a lecture last night where the presenter said that just about everybody he has known has fallen off the raw wagon about 8 times before they finally are able to fully commit and go for it. Sounds alot like what they tell you about changing your major in college - doesn't it?
Welcome! I wish you luck this time around. This is my 4th and I am pretty confident I will make it also. There are a lot of people with much knowledge here to help you.
Thanks for the welcoming :)
