I wasn't recognized!!!
Well, I used to go to Blockbuster every day to rent videos, it was fun, I enjoyed it and I made friends with the sales staff, talked about raw etc.
Well, I haven't been in there for about 3 months now, they knew I was eating raw, and that I was losing weight, and that was great.
Well, yesterday, I went there to see what movies they had for sale, and I was standing there, talking on my cell phone, and smiling at them, and when I went to pay, she looked at my credit card, looked at me, looked at my card, and just as she was about to say something, she wrote on a piece of paper, so she wouldn't interupt my phone conversation, "YOU look amazing!! girl"
I had to smile, and I got off my phone call, and we started chatting, then another sales person came up and she looked at me, and the first girl, said, this is Christine, and the other girl said, "Hi, nice to meet you." and the first girl said, "NO, this IS CHRISTINE, the RAW food lady." and the other girl just looked at me, and said, "OH my God, I didn't recognize you. You look so thin."
I must say, I feel pretty darn great about this, and of course, I have that note right in front of my computer, so I can look at it often.
Life is good when you are eating raw!!!
Good for You, RP!
Please enjoy all the admiration, you are RAWSOME!!!

Yay! What a wonderful feeling, I'm so happy for you :)
That's the strongest influence you can have in life. That you don't have to say anything. That your presence by itself will make a change in people.

Way to go girl!!!
That is so very cool! I'm so proud of you and you should be too!!! All your hard work, perserverance, and determination has paid off!
YAY for you!
RP - you are totally RAWsome!!!
Congratulations! I can only imagine how good that made you feel.
I refuse to tiptoe quietly through life only to arrive safely at death. I intend to slide in, thoroughly used up and yelling, "Wow! What a ride!"
An inspiration to those who knew you before and now a direct contact to those who want to change. You are living proof that "all is possible to those who belief." Awesome and proud of you!
That is great!!!! What a great compliment!!!

Admirable RP !!!!!!!!!!!!!

~Nursery rhyme quoted by Wayne Fields, What the River Knows, 1990 :cool:
There was a story in England a while ago about a lady who had lost about 100lbs (not on a raw diet) and she was stopped at Customs when returning to the UK after a holiday abroad because she didn't look like her passport photo any more!! It took her ages to convince the Customs guy that it really was her.
I would have been so proud of myself that I would have changed my passport BEFORE I went away.
Well done RP - must have been a great feeling for you.
Bask in the pleasure of knowing you're succeeding!
You are Goddess!
