Okay, so I've been a member here since about Feb 2010 - about a year and a half.
This is my first blog post.
It was my brother in law who told me about 30BaD - he's friends with Harley - so I became a member. I read Doug Graham's 801010 diet book and it made sense, so I became lfrv overnight. After a week (and noticing the benefits) I went off the diet. My husband has a history of being a baker and a pastry chef, so he has food issues, mostly the psychological/social side of things. For him, eating and sharing a meal is a huge thing and even sitting at the same table eating different foods was freaking him out. His whole family have been vegetarian for 30+ years so its not like he's a meat eater at all.
So I've been lurking here since last February and learning more and becoming more confident. Now I feel like I know the truth, so I can't hide from it anymore and I have to give this the best go that I can. It is now day 4 as 100% raw and last night we discussed the whole thing - I told him that I was disappointed that last time I 'quit' because of him, and that if I 'quit' this time, I want it to be of my own accord, so that I don't resent or blame him. He understands, and after airing his concerns we left it be. Not a green light, more like an amber one.
This time I am more prepared. I have better knowledge of what it takes to be a lfrv. And I am a stronger person now too. I am fully prepared in case there is a massive blow-up, because I know that my lifestyle change will be met with strong resistance, and it may even put our relationship to the test. I am not worried, we have a strong foundation and I know that he will come to accept my choice in time. When he sees the results he will be happy for me.
Wish me luck!
