Well, I think it’s time…time for me to get more involved. I know that the raw lifestyle is what I want. It’s not something I try to convince people or even try to explain to people what it is I’m doing…so I think I need to just more involved in the forums. So here I am! Hi! I’m Tessa…or so says my name. I’ve been doing about 80% raw for about 4 weeks now…I’ve lost 22 lbs (awesome!!) and I feel pretty okay. Honestly, I feel kind of mediocre at the moment. I know I need to do a detox…but I’m a little nervous. I live in Minnesota and this weekend I’m going up to the boundary waters…so I think after a weekend of some nice camping, I’m going to plan and execute my detox. Anyway…so I’m here. Glad to be here too! I am really going to try to get more active…it’s going to be the support of not only this forum, but the other raw food forums that will help me achieve my goal. And I’m glad you folks are all here!
