Look at the World with a Smilin' Eye

My name is Melissa and I have a lot to accomplish in my life, starting with getting healthy!

I'm a student nurse--graduating in May '15 to become a Registered Nurse! Unfortunately nursing school is unbelievably hard and stressful...and has taken a toll on my health. I'm looking to get back into control, but I really need support!

I hope to be able to reach out to other members and it would be awesome if I could help someone too :-)

Come baaaack! I'm back for real this time, no more messing around.

Is your ticker right? You've lost over 100lbs?! AHHHHHHHHHH THAT IS AMAZING!!! You are incredible!!!

How's school going and how's the veggie life?

I'm getting back to it and feeling good. A lot of changes around here - I left the big city and now am living in a super tiny rural town! Such a difference, it's so quiet out here and there's no drive thru's in sight. I left my job in February to persue my own cake business but seriously injured my back shortly after so I haven't been able to work on cakes :( I'm still recovering and not doing much so I've just been enjoying life - so strange not having a 9-5 job haha, still adjusting. Get in touch!!

Mel! Oh No!!!!! I just came back to Spark after falling off the wagon and came by to snoop you out but there's no recent blogs! I hope you didn't fall off the wagon too!! Come back if you did, we will do it together. Although I find cheeseburgers delicious, this time it's happening.

Kudos to you for joining us here on the Raw Foodies Team. This will be one of the best decisions you have ever made. Sparkers come here and join this great team for a multitude of reasons. They may be curious about the health benefits of Raw Food and join to learn all about eating Raw. Many join for the weight loss. Many join the Team for a Detox. There are a great many people who do the Raw Food Diet as a Detox but then they realize how alive they feel and how the pounds melted away so effortlessly they decide to continue to eat this way. There are others who will join this Team for the health benefits of a Raw Food Diet. A diet based on raw food can reverse diabetes, arthritis (I personally have experienced this. I went off all of my arthritis meds after only a few weeks), heart disease, cancer (that is how I became involved with the Raw Food Diet when my sister was diagnosed with Lymphoma), eliminates migraines, the list goes on and on.

So join us and learn how to make the transition from SAD (Standard American Diet) to a healthy Raw Food Diet. You will be happy you did!
