You all amaze me!
I've only been reading/posting on this forum for a short time and I just want to say that everyone is so encouraging! I've been toying with the idea of going 100% raw for several months, but just haven't done it. I just want to say that yesterday I was 100% raw! Today I will be too. . .I'm thinking this is going to be so much easier taking it one day at a time and not thinking I have to be raw for x amount of time like 30 days, 90 days, forever, etc. One day at a time works for me.
This may be a little premature, but I have eaten a variety of different diets and journaled how I felt on each, vegetarian, vegan, etc for a while, but it's just so much different going 100% raw. I could already feel it in my body and soul yesterday (AFTER JUST 1 DAY) that I was doing something really good for myself. I'm excited to see what today brings.
I just wanted to say that you have all offered great support and motivation possibly without even realizing it, so THANKS!
And WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME here.
Thanks for all the kind words.
We sometimes need to hear those good things.
We have ALL, every one of us been where you are. Our second day raw.
You can do this. You have a great mind set, and I just know your'e doing great with this.
Raw is so easy, you just eat what you like, grab a kiwi, or banana, and there you are.
There are many many great recipes here, if you like to make and prepare fun food.
And now is the perfect time to eat raw. Because Today is the only day we have.
Tomorrow will be today, when we get there.
So, just for today, enjoy your raw life, and keep us posted, ask lots of questons, and pretty soon, you'll be and old hand at this, and answering other newbies' questions yourself.
We are all here in the same boat with ya!
Congrats and welcome! I am so happy for you that you are so excited to embark on this journey. Wait until you see how much *more* wonderful you are going to feel!!! Hope to "see" more of you on the boards.
Thanks so much for the words of encouragement!
Here's a plus. . .I typically weigh 158-159 upon waking--I happened to step on the scale this morning and was shocked to see the number 154!
That's great! With RAW, it seems almost effortless, huh? :)
yeah myssi! What a fabulous gift you are ginving yourself. I am thrilled for you.
We are excited to encourage and support you as you journey forward.
