I live in central Virginia and am mom to three rambunctious little boys. I have never been much of a meat eater but unfortunately, I have enjoyed my SAD diet very much over the years.
Next week I will be 10 years cancer free and in January I will turn 40. The best gift I can give my kids is to take care of their mother and I feel that I'm ready to go raw. This lifestyle is something I've been interested in and researching for five years now but I never felt ready. I'm the heaviest I've ever been and while I have no major health issues, I know I'm headed in that direction. Having survived breast cancer, I never want to go back to that place.
My husband is supportive but not interested in making the same commitment so I will need the support of everyone here to stick with this as it is a drastic lifestyle change. I'm hoping that when my husband sees me making such positive changes, he will want to as well. At the very least, I'm hopeful that I"ll be able to get my entire family eating more fruits and vegetables.
I look forward to learning from all of you!
