30 Bananas a Day!

Getting my mother to join our 'cult'. ;)

Got my mom to go raw vegan!  She starts Monday.  She says she's gonna start either fully or 80% raw.      I'm getting her to join 30BAD, as well.  We aren't close at all  (I mean REALLY)... so hopefully we'll get a little closer through the experience, she needs a lot of help, she says!  

The reason my mother, a 100%  S.A.D. eater is joining... is a bet.  She bet her friends (they all cashed out 100 dollars) who could lose the most weight in 3 months.  So, 3 months raw, mum!  Ah, I can't wait to have her on it!  
I'm gonna try to make a connection with her, because I know most of our relationship fall out is my fault.  I mean, she did have some big part in it, too, I know, but when I'm hurt I won't let go... I push away  a lot.  I don't know if I can let go, but I still wish I had a mom in my life that was there more, so I'm totally gonna try.  At least get closer.   Its not like she neglects me, no, we just have completely separate ways... And like I said, I really push away.  My fault on how long I've kept a grudge.

She says she'll give 100% raw a try if she gets some good dinner recipes (she's planning on smoothies for breakfast/lunch).  So does anyone have any good recipes?  I'd love for her to try raw!  I wanna help her do her best to achieve a happy, healthy life!

Well someone has to be the bigger person, l now wish that was me.

That's a good thing to keep in mind.  I often forget to try and see her side of it.  I know she has valid reasons, too, or that she just really doesn't understand and wants to protect me.

Im sorry if that sounds sappy. I have children of my own and when i disagree with them im reminded that i have to look at things from there point of view, many times i came to understand they had valid points. Sean

Thanks, Sean, that was a really meaningful reply.  :)  I'm trying to fix it, things are just really rough, and I've been hurt alot, which caused me to turn away... which, is also a bad excuse, but I'm trying to get over myself.  I'm doing ok, so far.  I hope we can be close one day!

fix the problems now!! with your mother before its too late. Let me tell a short story. My relationship with my father took a bad turn when i turned Vegan (20+ years ago) . He hated the the idea that i would never eat meatagain , i left the home shortly after.(back then veganism was not as popular and we have more facts now) i realize his anger was made out of love for me ,but things were never quite the same ,partly because i have hise stuborn ways. Anyway all though we managed to get along for the grankids and family. Last September i barried my dad not fixing the rift ! im haunted by wasted time holding grudge 's , and i cannot forgive myself for not putting in more effort. Ill never get to forgive him because he grew up in diff time ' and simply did not know better- Ayllx guilt is a real ugly bitch to live with, it eats away at you.. Call her and fix it! Sean
