Just Added Some Pics
I just added some before and afters to the right hand side of my blog. You can scroll down to see me during my journey. I'm looking forward to getting back to my goal weight, but for now just eating and feeling better is what it is all about! Raw Rawks!
You look so cute and Fab! Congrats and thanks for sharing...nice blog! :)
Love your blog, thanks for all the great information and pictures.
I love your spring rolls, could you tell me how do you get the jicama so thin and soft enough to roll?
I made your carrot cake delish, thanks so much.
ShelShel, I'm happy to see you are back on track and feeling good! I also wondered how you sliced the jicama. I made those peirogies and loved them. I only had a potato peeler to slice with and they were not nearly as pretty as yours. I might need to invest in a mandolin slicer. Is that what you used?
I used the spiral slicer I purchased from Alissa's Appliance section. It makes great potato chips in the dehydrator too.
Thanks for the info.
If i soak them will that make them soft enough to roll up?
I will make some tomorrow.
Thanks for posting this. I had read your blog in the past but then I lost it so I am glad to have found you again. This time I added you to my favorites!

Thanks for the info on the slicer. I have a spiral slicer. I'll have to see if it's the same one.:)
I didn't have to soak them at all. But I pressed very lightly on the slicer to get nice thin slices. ;)
A few More Before & Afters
Moth, Thank you!!!!! I just added a few more pics to the blog because I realized the side ones don't blow up. Also, I added a few pics of the spiral slicer in action with my raw potato chip post. Hope that helps others with the questions about it.
aw! the pic of you with your head on your hand is so cute!!!! :)
isn't it nice to be raw again? although experiencing life with cooked again... gives you a nice perspective on raw i bet!
You are a beautiful girl at every stage (but when you were at your goal weight you look so young almost like a teenager!) With eating raw, I am sure you will get back to your goal weight again soon. :)
Mays goals to exercise at least 5 days a week and have fun doing so.

Thanks you guys! :)
Yes, Morn. I knew I was gaining, but I was trying so hard to make everyone around me more comfortable. In the end, if I'm not comfortable...what's the point!?!?!?
I'm so much more comfortable in my body when it's on the thin side. I feel more athletic and I really love shopping for clothing!
Thank goodness for raw.
Morn, your new pics are just beautiful. You must be so happy to reach your goal. Congrats!
