I did it!

I started eating really healthy right after my 4th baby in April, 2010. At the 6 month mark post partum I'd lost 65lbs! I did P90X and started running 10 weeks post delivery. But now I've taken it to the next level!!

I've gone raw/vegan! I'm loving it! This is just my third day now, but I already love how I feel more in touch with myself! Love it!

Congratulations on the baby and the weight loss.

Congratulations Nichole!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

That is extremely impressive! Congrats.

If you are going raw/vegan consult a nutritional expert to ensure you are getting a balanced diet, you may need to supplement heavily to gain the appropriate balance.

Thank you! For my protein I soak nuts and seeds prior to eating/making yogurts with them! I also drink Shakeology (www.shakeology.com/fitnessremix) as it contains a whole combination of amazing foods! I feel absolutely radiant and energetic! I'm loving it! Not to mention the mental clarity it's been giving me as well - really helping on the positive and love aspect of things!!
