Today (6/5/10) is six months for me (again) eating lfrv!! Woohoo!
(Recap: started in May 2007, did 811 for 6 months, then ate cooked food sometimes here and there - bad idea, but started again 100% raw on Wed, Oct 28, 2009, then ate cooked food 3x while on a cruise in early Dec. '09, again, bad idea! LOL).
Thanks for the support!
My goal has been 6 months, 1 year, forever...!

Hot weather is just around the corner here. I have about 10 more pounds to go, got to turn it up a notch. Zero fat today, day isn't over but after I finish eating half this watermelon I'm going to the kitchen to tidy up, fill up my water bottle and be done in there. I'm pretty bad for late night snacking and of course its never on fruit. I've had so much fruit today so hopefully that'll keep me away from the kitchen later on.… Continue

12 Summits of Tiger Mountain. WOW! That was a big day. For those who don't know, the Tiger Mountain State Forest has 6 named mountain summits. This run begins at the Tradition Plateau Trailhead and goes over each summit enroute to the trailhead at the southernmost corner of the forest near the intersection of Issaquah Hobart Road and Highway 18. Then, we… Continue

i've been raw now for about 2 months or more and i just noticed my skin on my face the other day. It's so pretty, no blemishes and a real pretty creamy pale, not my ill pale i've always had.
I'm so happy because it's very hard to stay raw, i don't know anyone else that eats raw. You guys are my only raw friends. I owe my pretty skin to all of you guys here. Thanks for being here!

Day 139 of the Fruit Feast. i have been very active this past 7 days or so. i was especially active getting the final touches of our garden together. i put up an electric fence because around here, the deer will totally clean out a garden. We have so many of them that hang out in our yard, i tell my family we might as well name them like pets. i love animals and i am aware that its man intruding on their habitat that is causing them to be more public than they would like. But at the same… Continue

Today is my birthday and for breakfast I had a couple bananas, and for my party I had a bunch of friends over for a banana eating contest. Go figure!
We had 30minutes to eat as many as we could. All the bananas were organic and nice and ripe. There were 6 contestants.
My strategy was to start off slow and gradually eat em faster n faster, but what ended up happening was I started out slow-too slow, and was unable to catch… Continue

Hello lovely people. I didn't get a chance to write yesterday which is a shame as I had a wonderful day. I think I ate about 3500 cals! I felt amazing and super positive, got lots done and was generally floating on a little bliss bublle all day long... Nice :)
Today I had to get up very early for me ( 5.45 am :( ) I was knackered but still felt happy and good. Problems began as it didn't really give me time to have breakfast or make a packed lunch, so I ended up taking the mashed nanas and… Continue

Day 137 of the Fruit Feast. With this past weekend being Memorial Day in the USA (thanks to all Veterans for their service), i have been quite busy. Doing bible studies, preaching and teaching, working out, gardening and exercising have taken up alot of my time. The Raw diet is still going very well inspite of the salt. i am still 100% raw and still enjoying it. i have not had cravings for the last few weeks at all. i get the slightest of tastes for the grain foods once in awhile but its not… Continue

So, my mom was visiting for 2 weeks and for the 1st time ever, I stayed 100% lfrv during her entire visit. And she took it very well! Yeah, me! Such a victory for me since in the last 3 years, I don't think I've ever done that. We had a wonderful time and I'm thankful for the time together! She went home today and I just have great memories and no regrets! Woohoo!

So I hate to bring negativity to this forum, but I really need to vent about something that got me riled up today! I am so fed up with fruit being so expensive and processed junk food being so cheap! The injustice of this, not only towards fellow fruities like ourselves, but every person on this planet, just frustrates me to the point of tears! Why is it the junk food that is processed beyond recognition and devoid of any nutrion is so much cheaper than a freakin' watermelon?! I'm not naive,… Continue

3rd world country folk are malnutrition-ed because the First world countries are mal-invested.
Malinvestment is probably a true deficiency disease caused by an excess of bubbles
The bubbles are made up of these following components ...
Greed - wanting more than you need - or borrowing more than… Continue

Week one of my new 'to hell with calories, i'm gonna eat 3000 of em' attitude has been and gone and all is well. Usually when I get off the junkfood and back into raw, I have a date rule - One a day and that one precious date is saved till dinnertime to blend up with some cherry tomatoes as a sauce for spiralized zuchini. Well, no more. This past week, I have been hoovering these little sweet treats like there's no tomorrow!!! I just ordered looooots more from Dave in Alice Springs as a… Continue

Sooo...yesterday (Memorial Day - US) I had my first running race of 2010, a 10k. I was all ready and raring to go, determined to have a good time even though I am definitely a slower runner. I just love being around others who exercise and actually enjoy it. I got there early, picked up my race number, pinned it on and went to my car to drop off some race brochures I had picked up. I then went to find the bathroom. I came back to my car to change into my sneakers (I had been walking around in… Continue

OK- feeling it today :) After a disheartening yesturday culminating in cheese on toast and feeling like it is all going horribly wrong. I dusted my ass off and got back on. The good news is that in the old days I would have binged on a whole loaf rather then stopping at two pieces so some improvement happening but still not my proudest moment...
So today I got up looked through wat went wong, it was as I am sure you will all have guessed again not enough calories frtom fruit, I think I… Continue
