Hi, I'm Mimi. It's a pleasure to meet you! I have been a vegan most of my adult life, primarily a Macrobiotic eater. When I was pregnant with my youngest (Now three). I made the stupidest mistake of my life. I gave into the immense pressure by my new husband and my Doctor and I began eating meat.
What followed has been literally four years of hell. I suffered severe post partum depression. I started taking anti- depressants, which I had never previously taken or believed in for that matter. My health unraveled, I gained about 70 pounds over the past three years, my skin exploded with extreme dryness and acne, i developed blood pressure and cholesterol issues...among a slew of other things....
In February I got super sick and decided enough was enough. I cut out the poison and have not struggled with it one bit. In doing research, I discovered 30BAD, I decided to try raw til four. The turn around in a few short weeks is AMAZING. So much so,that I don't think I could ever go back. The weight is melting off (As my clothes are not fitting. I have opted not to weigh myself because weight is not what this is about). My husband has even reduced is meat and dairy by about 75% and said he could see going vegan if he could just get over the idea that he NEEDS meat. It will come in time.
I'm happy to be here and I can't wait to become more involved with this life.
