Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
I was already a 100% raw vegan before finding RFR. I decided to join The Vault because I really appreciate the weekly accountability. This last Initiative, Falling Into Raw, was really a good time for me as I incorporated Zumba and Buns of Steel into my routine. Remember that one? From the 80's? OUCH!
So what happened this last 11 Weeks is that I dropped 11 pounds, found that I'm sleeping better, have increased mental clarity and have even more incentive to workout! My energy level is off the charts. Eating a raw vegan diet is my long term lifestyle choice. I don't eat cooked, processed or altered foods. I have no stove, so I can't cook, nor will I go to fast food places. Going "off the wagon" is not an option for me.
This was me, prior to going raw:
Since I began my Raw healing journey five years ago, my life has totally, TOTALLY changed. I was so sick with migraines and a non-functioning thyroid, that life was not worth living. But chaging my lifestyle has healed me. Not one migraine and my thyroid, after six years of a specialist not being able to regulate my thyroid with meds, after 11 months, I was healed/cured. So yes. Eating Raw has totally changed my life. My mental clarity is sharper than when I was 30! I'm 57 now. I sleep well. I have a ton of energy - ALWAYS! Life is so GOOD!
I love Raw. I'm so thankful for finding Raw Food Rehab. Penni & Susan are my special Angels that have come into my life. I love you! I will be in The Vault & The Weight Room as we Resolve to Evolve in 2011 and I am so stoked! I hope you'll be joining me there!
LOVE ~ Lucy aka Vegan For Life!
I loved chatting and getting to know you even better yet this weekend on RFR chat, thanks Lucy! I'm not sure about breaking up with my BF now, we are having a really nice Christmas ... I LOVE your story and healing yourself. I, too, have along history with raw and holistic veg lifestyle but RFR has helped me stay connected and much more consistent.
I have ups and downs but it keeps getting better and healthier day by day, initiative by initiative. ;)
You inspire me !!!!!!!
Yay, Lucy! And you're wonderful encourager on this site. So happy to know you through RFR! Continued blessings and health to you in 2011! :-)
Thanks for sharing this with us, and i can't wait until Resolve to Evolve starts and "Ms." "RawBully" starts kicking cellulite man, old habits man, and compulsive eating man (and all their buddies)and taking names!
