My before and in progress photos
I've been all raw for 7 and a half months now. I am basically a new person inside and out! I have released 50 pounds so far. I haven't been ready to post any photos until now, but my daughter has convinced me that these new photos are good enough to share.
I don't consider myself done yet. I still need to lose about 25 pounds, so I am a work in progress. Of course, I will always be a work in progress!
I must thank all you raw angels here for being my inspiration and encouragement. Enjoy the journey fellow rawbies. RAWK ON !!!!!!

Wow, you look so pretty (and happy) now!!! You go girl!!
Wow! You look so much better.........happier, healthier, and by far thinner!
Walking the Path of Radiant Health and Vibrant Energy. :p
I may Slip, Trip, Stumple or Fall, Leaves of despair may even cover the path but, as I get up, brush myself off, remain still, & wait for God's Love to reveal the path
I Am Able to STAY the COURSE!

Our PLANET is so Precious. God created this and its up to us to respect it. Did you know the Water we use today is the same water Moses used? RECYCLE everything you can at least once.... Let's keep this going...........
I am STUNNED. I usually don't comment on before and afters, but I just had to say: Before you looked in your forties, now you litterally look in your 20s. You look like a completely different person!!!!
Did you fast during those months?
Thank you everyone! I feel like a different person!!!! I have done only a little fasting. I fast for one day every once in a while when I need energy. I did an 11 day juice fast in May and I may do more fasting if it feels right in the future. I'd really like a helper to make juice for me all day long while I'm at work. I haven't gotten any volunteers just yet! hee heeee;)
RAWsome! RAWsome! RAWsome!
Keep up the good work - you look gr8!!!!!!!!!!!!
Congratulations, you look great and you are doing so good. What a progress in just 7 months.
Blessings and love

it's funny. when i had 100+ pounds to release, i was so overwhelmed. but looking at your pics... you can REALLY see how much of difference 50 pounds makes. why is it when we (the royal we here) are overweight we think it's an all or nothing thing... we have to release all the excess weight or it doesn't count?
you obviously didn't have over 100 pounds to release but look at you... you look sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo great!!!
OH MY GOODNESS!
Someone already said it above, but I am absolutely floored how much younger you look in that last picture--you look like me at 16. CRAZY!
Congrats to the 10th power lady!
Oh my gosh, your change is so dramatic. You look so incredible, not only the outside, but your spirit is like a different person. Congratulations and thanks for sharing your pics with us!
High raw since April 2006
You do look younger! AND...Your hair and your skin look really terrific!
Sooo inspirational for a newbie like moi!
Wow you look great... Congratulations.
Look at you GLOW! Amazing. Good job!
