Before and Before-Before
This is what I used to be... and what I became and what I still look like now.
so, before before pic is the skinny one... and the before pic is now-ish. I would like to get back to what I was before before: a healthy person!
Now, I don't have any medical issues going on, except being 130kg. It hasn't affected my health in a drastic way (not that I can perceive anyway...)
I felt so much better eating well and being able to run and do things that were fun to do. It's amazing how "fun" changes when you put on weight, becoming more food-oriented and lazing about... I want to be alive again, basically.

The only thing that is stopping you is you.
There is sufficient in the world for man's need, but not for his greed.
just go for it
You are a beautiful woman and I know you will get there (to a happier you). I was struggling with weight too (I still do, but now I have only 20 pounds left), but with raw it is so easy, you can eat all the fruit and veggies you want and you will still lose weight.
I wish you all the best and can't wait to see more pics.
have you seen my befores and now? you really should check them out. ;)
thanks for the couragings, rawsters!
Aleesha!!! oh my DOSH! (as my little niece says... ) I'll keep going and look at the before and afters every day!
This is so very true!

The best thing that has helped for me is my ONE rule.Eat as much as you want,anything you want,whenever you want...As long as its raw..There are no other rules,and everything we were programed to assume as the correct way to manage weight,(fat free,low calorie,portion control),no longer exsist............... forgetaboutit!!!
Sending you raw blessings!!

changed my username and been known as Whoa-Raw. :)
Wow, what a transformation!
thanks Laura-jane! it's really hard work putting on all that weight!
You know, I started out about where you are right now. I've been raw -- high raw I should say -- for about five months now. I've lost more than 40lbs by now and I feel awesome!
But before that -- rewind to five months ago --I was miserable. I had this terrible mentality that I was just a fat person and I couldn't change that. I had given into it and had become quite comfortable being obese. I thought that I didn't deserve to be thin and beautiful. I don't know how I ever came to think that way. But when I decided to let go of it and begged God to teach me what it was to really Live ---it was just such a [I]huge[I] weight off of my shoulders. And now I cannot stop smiling! I grin from ear to ear every minute of the day because I just feel so alive now.
So I pray that you will have that same smile on your face very soon. It is so worth every minute of this raw lifestyle -- it will change your life, I promise!! :)
