Feel better soon, Jesse! Remember, challenges and tests aren't always bad. They can show you what you're really made of and that you're strong enough to stay true to your commitment of reaching your goal, no matter what life throws at you. Take care of yourself and take it easy while you're healing. Part of getting and staying fit is knowing when it's time to rest and recover. Once you're well, you can get back on track to reaching your goal. You've done a great job this month! You should be very proud of yourself.

YAY!!! So proud of you, Jesse! Keep up the great work! And I hope you'll feel better soon. I've been wondering how you have been feeling since cutting down on the Vega WFHO?

Thanks Karen and Michelle.I had a few setbacks but kept plugging away.I am sure as it gets warmer and as my body heals, I will be testing myself much more.

Hey, one of my very good friends follows the 80/10/10 diet and also has one of those veggie spiralars you mentioned. Makes raw zucchini pasta with it, too, and loves it!


And who among us isn't jones-ing for a Vitamix?!?! God, I want one soooo bad!! Yeah, someday......


How are the tummy issues going for you lately?

Been a lot better,But this week my diet was crap because when i am sick I am different from most people in that I eat more when i am sick than when i am not sick. I think part of the problem may have been eating a lot of fiber too.my body wasn't used to that.Just got to keep tweaking my diet until i find the right combo for me.


I got the spiraler cause one of my prizes last month i got was a raw food cook book so i really want to dive into it and try stuff instead of just looking at the beautiful pictures in the book
