From Robin to "Rawbin"

I hesitantly sent Philip, from LovingRaw, a page about me with some before and after photos. Later, feeling bold, I posted some more photos on a Raw-Fu before and after group:

I'm 5'5" tall and of a small/medium skeletal frame. According to doctors I should weigh between 120-130 pounds. My top weight was 210 (before I stopped looking at the scale) and I'm currently at 156.

I've shed 20 pounds by cutting out meat, dairy, and cooked grains. I shed another 30 by adding in raw fruits, raw vegetables, raw nuts and raw seeds. A total of 50 pounds eliminated and not a single stomach ache on my 100% raw days.
My red holiday sweater, size XXL.
I thought it was flattering.
Proof that vertical stripes aren't always slimming!
This was my glamorous shirt. 
I thought it hid my curves!
The same sunglasses,
 but they fit my face differently.

I love that you put on the same suit to show the huge difference that raw has made with your body!!

Congratulations on such a wonderful transformation. Without raw you wouldn't feel as great as you do, AND I never would have met you!

XOXOXO
