Default Over 300 lbs and going raw - eeek!!

Hi, everyone -
I'm an (almost) lifelong vegetarian. I have some pituitary issues that I m working with doctors to resolve (high cortisol, central hypothyroid, etc). My health has been deteriorating and I knew that processed food weren't helping. I have two very young kids , so not a lot of food prep time. Then I discovered a raw vegan delivery service - I tried a couple dishes and was sold.

So I am working towards being 100% raw vegan. I hope this new lifestyle will allow me to lose weight despite my med problems. I'm bout 75% raw vegan now, and feeling much better already.

So....it's kinda either this or weight loss surgery. And, right now, this is much better than going under the knife.


PS - I'm breastfeeding a 6 month old and this diet has not effected my supply - just fyi for any nursing mom's. Just make sure your calories are adequate.

pps - sorry if this seemed clunky or weird. I always type with one hand because if I am at the laptop, I am inevitably nursing! lol!
