Hi!
Iím a 60-year-old grandmother who lives in Long Beach, a community in the beach cities of Los Angeles. My husband and I enjoy riding our bikes all over California!

Dave and I have been married 32 years and have two daughters: Deidre and Erica. Deidre presented us with our first granddaughter, Leah, November 2005.

I appreciate Sparkpeople because, with the tools at this site, I was able to start and STAY on my journey to a healthy lifestyle. I have started these changes many times in the past, but gave up after a few months. But now itís different. There has always been something at this site that draws me in and keeps me going towards my goals. It may be the fun or spinning the wheel or blowing off steam in Spark Cafť or earning the next trophy!

And my discovery at Sparkpeople has led me to a raw food lifestyle. My daughter dropped off a flyer for a wellness center where he got a great massage. But I didnít see the massage on the flyer but instead the description for weight loss through acupuncture! I couldnít get it out of my mind so I stopped by and before I knew it, I became a regular client. Dr Kim, my acupuncturist, put me on a raw vegetable diet as part of my weight loss program.

Dr Kim says Western medicine has it all wrong. In order to lose weight you must eat food that forces your body to draw on the fat it has stored to run your body. Eating raw veggies forces the body to burn the fat it has stored. I am a testament to the truth of that statement: after 6 weeks I have lost 20 pounds!!!

Look at my blog for a journal of my journey to heath.

Wishing a happy, safe, and healthy holiday weekend! Hoping you don't come into contact with the crazies that drink and drive. Hoping there are no mishaps with fireworks. Hoping you stay away from an even bigger dilemma - blowing your diet. Stay on track; you worked too hard. All dangers in my book!

Hi, you have sparked my interest on the raw food diet. I am curious and will do some investigating. I added you as a friend and hope you will do the same with me so we may support each other.

Interesting thoughts about the raw food diet. I am a new vegetarian who's trying to be mostly vegan, so I have been eating a lot more produce than previously. I'm not on a raw diet but I have noticed my body acting positively to the change. Perhaps a raw diet is in my future, perhaps not. But I'm glad it's working for you!

Hi, My name is Kerri, I live in the mountains of KY. My family and I love out door sports... I have joined SP on Jan 30th and weigh 177. My goal is to lose to 145 by May for my oldest sons college graduation commencement, and to reduce my high blood pressure so I can go off all meds. Please consider being my SP friend. I see by your progress you have come a long way....
