Starting back on High Raw today. Not putting pressure on myself to be 100% at all. This is where I ALWAYS run into problems.
I've missed RFR and can't wait to get to know everyone that is new and to say HI to old friends.
I have really felt drawn back to Raw lately. I started back at the end of March.
I am trying to transition but wow I am having a hard time this time. Last Summer it seemed to easy. This year I am slamming so many nuts and seeds (I did manage to soak/sprout them) that I can't believe it and I just ate like a third of a jar of sesame tahini!
I think I need the calcium because my body is really craving that stuff. I ate a third jar yesterday too.. and seem to really be wanting…Continue
Just simply feeling so yuck is what has finally brought me back to Raw in the hopes of creating a healthy lifestyle again.. all the amazing fresh fruit on our Bahama's trip didn't hurt the push back here either!
I wrote this in my personal journal this AM:
"My inner self has REALLY been talking…Continue
It seems every Spring I am drawn back to Raw. I started back yesterday (high raw).. I won't be putting pressure on myself to be 100%, this is what the problem was in the past.
I have health issues and still need to lose 100 pounds.
I need to be a…Continue
So I wanted to post that I am now down 7.8 pounds so far!
I read and watch videos of so many others that have that bliss and have taken all their excess fat off.. I am absolutely positive I am just as able to do this as they were. I am very ready and very willing and accept that it won’t be peaches and…Continue
Day 3 of my 10 day juice feast.
I am feeling pretty good today. So far so good anyway.. yesterday as the day…Continue
-Lemon juice in water – 1 quart
-half a pineapple, 2 small limes, 4 huge stalks of celery and 1 small head of romaine – 1 quart
Thank you so much everyone for your comments yesterday! XOXO~
So first thing this AM around 6:30AM I had a huge glass of water with half a lemon in it. I was supposed to add my MSM but I forgot..
and.. well really I started on "just juice" after my breakfast of…Continue
I started back High Raw yesterday. I already lost a pound and I was only maybe 70% Raw yesterday.
I just got back from "Whole Paycheck" and bought a few more supplies. I always end up buying too much. Organic produce goes bad faster than I am used to. I tried to only get…Continue
It has taken three weeks longer than I thought but Today is the day.
My sweet sister's surgery was a success and I have been home a week today, got the house in order, lots of veggies and some fruit and lots of raw nuts laid in and today I am totally pigging out on nuts and raw dehydrated cherries and soaked pumpkin seeds so far for breakfast and lunch. I am making a huge salad for dinner.
I was telling myself I should wait a couple more days so I could get…Continue
I had a dream last night I threw away all the SAD food in the house and it felt so good! I know I can't waste $$ but I am impatient. I want to start NOW! I don't really have much fresh in the house. No fruit at all.
I worry about…Continue

It's taken longer than I thought to get back to high raw.. Husband is very supportive and all he asked is that we don't throw too much food away so we don't waste $$$. I have so much food in the house and pantry (s).
If it was totally up to me I would pitch half the pantry (and slowly am, here and there,…Continue
I can't wait.. well I am a bit concerned that I am diving in again without really being prepared but I always want to make it harder than it has to be with all kinds of raw goodies and really I just need to stock up on lots of great fruit and veggies and make it more simple this time around!
I have of course gained all my weight back.. actually to exactly where I was before I started last Summer.. 24 pounds.
I feel fatter though.. and less healthy. I am so…Continue
Well I encountered my first real stress today in a while and all day I have been wanting to eat something greasy with lots of cheese. I always want Mexican when I am stressed or angry.
I will be ok I am just upset at how quickly my mood can change from lovely to major cravings. That in it's self makes me mad at myself and my weak will.
I am also dreading a vacation coming up instead of feeling excited because I feel overwhelmed even thinking about how I…Continue
It has been a couple of days since I posted. I am still doing great and am down 6 pounds. I've been 100% Raw as far as I am SURE.. although now I am not so sure about my "Raw" cocoa powder. Like I mentioned earlier I am not going to concern myself with labels and so maybe today I was 98% raw!.. ha.
So I am having $$$ Woes. We are SO tight cash wise right now that I am really struggling with the cost of staying Raw. …
5# down in 4 days 100% Raw.. again I am REALLY not committing to being 100% anything except Human and sometimes I wonder about that.
This morning as I was standing on the back porch waiting for my puggie Sukiyaki to come in from his early morning wee..

Well I am down 4 pounds in three days.
I was very surprised when I got on the scale today because I have been eating lots of nuts and seeds trying to overcome my late day hunger.. still raw but STILL LOTS OF FAT AND CALORIES!.
I have read that Raw fat is not as "fattening" to our bodies as cooked fat. I am not sure that is true but it seems to be as I really have been eating allot of the nuts and seeds.. two days ago I ate a half jar of raw tahini... just kept tripping…
Woke at 4:30am. lets just say with some detox symptoms! I was 100% yesterday... but i got so hungry late day that I ate a half jar of raw tahini!
I am a bit concerned about all the calories... 1400 alone in the tahini. I didn't buy many raw nuts because last time they were a problem... I need to have them in the house. I am doing this for my health but I need to lose like 80#.
What is your opinion on all the nuts and seeds in the beginning? Especially…Continue
Today starts only my second day back.
Yesterday I managed 100% Raw... but I am not putting a label on myself this time around.
Today so far I am 100%. I am eating allot of fruit which is a concern for me but I am going to trust the process and reach for low GI fruits the majority of the time.
I love this site so much and look forward to participating!
