I am new here. I am a 47 year old wife and mother of 2. I am about 40-50lbs overweight, have very mild MS, am totally addicted to sugar, and am so sick of feeling like crap. I would like to try going raw, as it all sounds so good to me. I am on an extremely limited income, and have a family to feed. My husband has no interest in a diet such as this. He loves his "meat" and thinks mayonaise and french fries are food groups (LOL). I have to be able to allow him to eat as he chooses, but still take care of myself. My daughter (12) has become a "vegetarian", but eats mostly carbs and peanut butter. I think she may like to try much of what I see here. My son is more like his dad, but he is 9 and does like most raw food, so I think I can do a 1/2 and1/2 with him. I

3. Were any of you very overweight when you started?
***PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE... No salespeople!!!!!!! I just need some good friendly direction and support. Thanks so much in advance for any good advice. K
