Hi Glad2beme ...
You can do this! Remember ~ this too shall pass!
yes you are absolutely right.....thank you (please pass soon)
you can do this, come on! We are here for you, if you are having a hard time, come to the board and talk to us, we'll guide you through, you are not alone in this!
If you are having trouble just sticking to the OJ, maybe you can add different fruit or veggie juices? But I'm not sure if you want that... anyways, you'll have more variety that way...
Take care, hugs!
Seriously Joke... you're so encouraging and supportive you make me want to do a juice fast.
Maybe I should think about that...
Live the life you want to live.
Be who you want to be.
Today is your every tomorrow.
Yes she is very encouraging...I am ok , had a moment, so I went to cut my hair, feel much better now. Thank you -thank you - thank you
Oh you guys!! You are just too sweet! :)
It's weird, but it's like I know you and I'm feeling the same as you do, too bad we live so far apart
I'm glad you like my support, and it's vice versa, whenever I'm feeling down, I know I can count on you and this board to lift me up again!
Thanks again, bless you!
Wrecked Spark, Yeah!! You should come and join us, the more the merrier (sp?) Can you tell english is not my mothertongue?? I'm making so many spelling mistakes here, it's kinda funny when I re-read some of my posts, I'm like you silly thing, that's not how that's supposed to be written!
at least you guys understand what I'm trying to say!
Oh and Glad2beme: your hair looks great! ;)
Hi again Joke & Glad2beme!
I need your serious thoughts on this ...
First is confession time: and please don't get me wrong, as I am not blaming raw food b/c I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was my own lack of discipline ... now onward ... today from 3:00 to 3:30 I completely blew it & had a major binge To top it off, none of it was even remotely healthy ... not even vegan ... nothing living! Pure junk & even some animal ...ergh! I don't even like the taste of meat, but I caved anyway. So here's what I was thinking .... as of 3:30 today I began a 100% juice fast. I feel as though it will be the quickest way to detox and get rid of all of these wacky cravings that I have had (and given into) today. My biggest concern is if it is too soon ... is there even such a thing? I am open to any input. Tonight I will probably completely abstain from anything as the garbage I ate earlier has made me naucious. However, fasting or not, I am back on the raw train already & hopefully this time I will not falter.
wow, it takes a lot of courage to admit you sliped and binged on some junk! It's not easy staying raw, I think everyone has experienced such moments several times, at least I have... the best thing to do is to jump back on the raw wagon... If you are feeling bad because of the food you had before, maybe it's indeed, like you said, better to don't eat anything or at least nothing heavy, but that's just what I would do, I'm not experienced in raw food, I'm still learning myself...
I suppose it's okay starting a juicefast tomorrow, heck, the day before I started, 4 days ago, I had some bread and cheese as well, and because I was feeling SO bad that evening (you know the signs: bloated, headache, feeling miserable) I decided then and there that the day after I would start my juicefast! And I'm so glad I'm still holding strong! Thank god I don't have a family to cook for like some of you do, but my parents are still eating cooked, and I know it's hard and tempting to see their delicious food (I admit, it still looks and smells great!) but I know I'm better off eating raw.
In my life (and I'm only 25) I've always struggled with my weight, I've kept gaining and then losing some again just to gain some more... I know that I have to be carefull with what I eat, but sometimes it's just too hard! You see other people enjoying their meal or their junk, and you crave it so bad!
But I've done enough harm to my body, I told myself, before I started out with raw, this is the last time I'm doing something to lose weight and become healthy again, I'm so fed up with all the failures, so this time, I went for it, once and for all, I'm pulling through, I can do this, I have to do this, if I want to feel good about myself again. And don't get me wrong, I still like lots of cooked food, but I tell myself I can live without it, and sometimes I crack, and allow some non-raw, but I feel so bad afterwards, physically, that I know I need to take care of myself, my body. It's the only one I have, and I have to treasure it!
So to sum it up: I think it's a good thing to get back on track Tamara, and start juicing tomorrow, but just to be on the safe side, maybe you can ask Todd or Alissa in a private message, as I'm not sure if they read this thread frequently...
All my best,
Ugh, I cannot seem to make my tummy stop hurting. Anyway, I took your advice & pm'd Alissa. I have complete respect for her & I hope to hear from her soon.
Thank you so much for sharing & giving advice.
You are very welcome, :)
I'm sure Alissa will give you some great advice!
I'm sorry your tummy is still hurting, isn't it amazing how fast your body gets used to the raw and instantly reacts with bloating and pain when you allow cooked food or junk back into your life?
It still amazes me, before raw, my tummy wouldn't get upset that easily, maybe also because I still payed attention to what I ate, but I would never have this huge reactions to a bit of cooked food, and now, post-raw, my stomach gets upset so quickly...
Talk to you later!
You are so right Joke!
Hopefully this will be a lesson that I remember for the rest of my life ... it definitely was NOT worth it! I think I'll go lay down for the night. What is really sad is that it is only 5:30pm here!
HI VEGAN....#1 -DO NOT beat yourseld up, you are great!!!

Thank you Glad ... you have no idea how bad I needed to hear that! Off to bed ...
