Back at it! I'm here for probably the same reason(s) most everyone else is---for a CHANGE!

Being a new RN is tough. What's tougher is trying to change an unhealthy lifestyle when you've been using it as a crutch for reasons no one can see. I believe in support and that it really does change lives.

That's why I'm here. I want to change. I don't want to be defined or held down by my struggles any longer.

NUTRITION
*IIFYM and counting cals
*Eat clean
*Low-glycemic (I have PCOS/metabolic syndrome)
*MORE VEGGIES!

Personal Information:
I am a newly licensed Registered Nurse (RN) who desperately needs to stay on track of getting healthy while starting this new, stressful career.

Outside of nutrition/diet/weight loss...

I love antiques, crafting and repurposing. My creativity makes me extremely happy! Just recently became VERY interested in hiking after traversing Mt Lemmon in Tucson.

Last, but not least...

I need to make friends. I think that has been my downfall in my weight loss/healthy lifestyle journey. I really don't have many friends who can relate to me or understand the struggles of being more than 100 pounds overweight. So that's another goal!

Other Information:
Things that make me happy:

*aromatherapy
*Halloween
*rescuing animals
*sewing, knitting
*soccer
*music (I love bluegrass, classical, Indie, Bollywood, and reggaeton to get me going)
*Christmas
*thrifty shopping
*antique hunts
*genealogy

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!

Hi, vegan pal! Cooking vegan food can be hard at first but once you get a few go-to recipes under your belt it's not so bad. To be honest, I'm don't normally do a whole lot of raw stuff, except for salads probably but it seems like a good idea! Where do you currently get your recipes from? There are so many awesome blogs and websites (including raw vegan ones), let me know if you want me to give you some of my faves! Hopefully it will make cooking a little bit easier :)

Bartering is cool stuff! Nice to work those things out. Not positive, but it is possible that helmets and locks may be available at the Bike Giveaway on May 11th. If you don't have any by then, you might want to take your chances and heck, get to know some bike club members! I can introduce you! :-)
