Hello everyone. I am really excited to be here and learn from you. I have been raw in the past, slipped, jumped back on and slipped again depending on what's happening. Pregnancy, nursing, things like that. I have 12 kids, we homeschool and try our best to eat as much raw and organic as $$ will allow. I'm off again on raw to try and let my body find it's set weight. For the past 4 years since I've not gotten pregnant nor am I nursing I embarked on my weight loss journey. It's not been pretty. I workout 4-6 days a week, watch my calories, try to eat organic/raw and yet I gained 30 lbs in that time frame rather than lose. However, I have done raw and succeeded in losing baby weight but always fell off. I'm not quite sure how it was I gained all that weight while eating right and working out but whatever, it's over and I'm hoping by going raw again I can fix that. I'm on my 6th day and have lost 4 pounds. I did notice however that yesterday and today I actually gained 4/10 of a pound so that was a bummer. I say that only because of my negative experiences over the last 4 years of trying, trying, trying and yet never winning the race. It doesn't take much for discouragement to set in after my past experience.
That all said, I'm back, I'm excited and hoping to learn many things along the way. I look forward to meeting all of you and learning from you. I did notice in the profile deal I set up that I put I was only 5 foot tall but I'm actually 5'4", I just didn't want it to seem I was THAT short and heavy.
Smiles to all,
