Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
My main goal is to lose 35lbs in 6 months (or less... if that happens first, great!).
My secondary goals are that in the process of achieving the main goal, I will be in less pain, lower my very high blood pressure, release stress, feel less fatigue and more energized!
Staying within the boundaries of my SP nutritional goals with a 1250 - 1550 cal/day plan.
Wii Fit Aerobics, Strength and Yoga training, also Turbo Jam. 30 - 60 min/day 4 days/wk.
I'm a mom of two, as noted above in my intro.
45 yrs old. 182 lbs.
Canadian / US citizen living currently Northern California.
Licensed as a massage therapist, and also in energy work, but not currently active.
I am passionate about holistic health and wellness, balance and harmony in life, eating RAW, seasonal, and nourishing, whole foods, Lomi ili' ili' Hawaiian Hot Stone Therapy, Polarity Therapy, Reiki, Quantum Touch, and Shamanic healing (and always about learning more!)
My favourite colour is bright coral / sunset / poppy orange. Can you tell ?? This colour infuses my whole body with life and energy!
My daughter and I are parents to 5 furry purry kitties, one 80 lb. Pit Bull/Shar Pei lap dog named Pixie, and one teeny, tiny 12 week old miniature poodle pup named Biscotti Buttons PoodleBear... who thinks that Pixie is the bees knees and follows her EVERYwhere... they are the two, funniest, cutest doggie creatures ever, and they fill our home with joy and laughter which is beyond all doubt the most wonderful, healing medicine for the soul.

Hi all.... CountryGal from Natural Health... GrammaCathy from Oregon and Fatigue Support Group... and Travelnista from Raw Foodies Team....
....so much to each of you for your warm welcome. I look forward to meeting other group members, sharing and learning together as we all continue on our journey to amazing health!
GrammaCathy... as you will note.. I have updated my long-overdue intro section. I actually don't live in OR/WA any longer... but i lived all over the Portland Metro area for 25 years. I met my daughter's dad when he lived in Longview... his favourite restaurant is Hart C's. You probably know where that is! LOL And I'm sure I likely am familiar with many of your favourite Oregon places to go.... Anyway... my daughter and I moved to Northern California last fall... and although I miss the PNW.. I love, love, LOVE where we live.. and don't ever want to move again!

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!
