I live on a small "farm" with my large family and a bunch of goats, cows, and horses.
In the last 3 years I've been on any number of diets and health kicks trying to lose some weight and always yo-yo-ing back and forth between my cravings and wanting to lose weight, I even went vegan for a month one time, but the cravings won out since I didn't like going to all the trouble to make gourmet vegan food (and my brothers gave me a really hard time about not eating meat).
I've been following Megan Elizabeth (Easy To Be Raw) on youtube for about six months and her story finally convinced me to try HCRV for a couple of months to see if it really works, to get healthy & lose that last bit of weight that my previous calorie restriction diets had caused me to gain (and keep no matter what I tried). My goal for being on here is to meet other people who live this diet/lifestyle and to offset the pressures from certain family members that love meat & dairy products and think they know everything, including why I should be like them.

Also, eating 3000 calories a day flies in the face of everything I've learned about losing weight, I'm afraid I'll end up gaining instead of losing weight. I'm concerned that I won't have the energy for working out & lifting weights.
