I am on cloud 9 with this NSV...

Thursday, March 22, 2012

So in case you don't know, a NSV is what is known as a non scale victory. What has me jumping for joy?

Yesterday I was dry brushing before my shower and I noticed that my bulging varicose veins were gone on my right leg. Unbelievable! I examined my legs and most of my varicose veins have disappeared on both legs. None are bulging anymore and the remaining are almost non-existent. The spider veins are almost gone too!

Last month I noticed that the age spots I was beginning to see show up on my hands were almost gone. I am happy to say they are now totally gone. Ugh I am going to turn 57 in a few short days, so age spots go away and stay gone. My skin looks so good because of what I eat.

What do I attribute this to? My Raw Food Diet of course. Raw Food ages you in reverse. It is also quite common for new hair growth to come in at your natural color. I would love to see this happen. I will admit I color my hair blonde. I am a natural brown haired girl. emoticon

So what are you waiting for? Eat up those Raw fruits and Veggies!

    I'm not totally raw yet, maybe 70%, but I swear I have less gray coming in now with drinking all those green smoothies. Congrats on your NSV!

    This is an awesome post. So many things that reverse on us in life, love hearing the good stuff!

If my natural hair color came back in, I'm not sure what I'd do, I don't know if I remember it! emoticon

But if is shows up without the gray, I'll keep it!
