The wife likes it.. which is a good thing lol.. She too has lost 20lbs so far on about 75% raw. The kids could care less... lol.. Other family members (in laws primarily) that have seen me, at first said things like I was too skinny, but then once the initial shock wore off they said I looked good (and asked me not to lose any more weight, to which I just smiled). The funniest one was my 12yo half sister. I hadn't seen her since christmas, and she was totally scared of me, it was such a shock to her. It took her about an hour to stop looking at me like I was the boogie man! She kept staring though, and the only thing she could say to me "you look weird".

Photography is my way of painting the atmosphere around me, opening my eyes to the splendour of the world.. Glimpses of my effort can be seen here:
WOO HOO!!! Great job and may your successes just continue to flow!!

Just curious what is your height?
Your kids are precious!
And a pat on the back for your wife too! Sounds like she is doing
great on raw too! It's wonderful that she is doing this with you
even though she isn't 100%, it helps a lot and benefits her too.
As everyone else has said - you look great.
It's funny, my daughter was just sharing with me how much milder her colds are now that that she is high raw, just as I was reading this thread, so I read to her what you wrote about your cold. She could totally relate to what you said.
Continue with your journey to a better and healthier life. Also, so glad to hear that your wife is seeing benefits from being even 75% RAW!!!
Thanks for posting....you look great...it is always such an inspiration to actually "SEE" raw working!!! Very cool~
Congratulations and thank you so much for posting your pictures, very inspirational! The change in your face as so many have mentioned is just a perfect ad for raw foods and it is wonderful that your wife is doing so well also on high raw!
