Check out Heidi

If you're reading this blog, you've likely been to Raw Food, Right Now! at some point. If you haven't been there lately, pop over soon. Heidi, who's doing a 92-day juice feast, posted a gallery of photos that show her at various stages pre- and post- Raw foods.

So what's the big deal? There are lots of dazzling Before and After pictures on the Internet. They show dramatic weight loss, cleared skin, and enhanced glow--all the result of Raw Food. Here's the thing though. Heidi hasn't yet reached all of her physical goals. In one picture (from quite some time ago) she's clearly displeased with where she is on her journey to health.

Even though there's a glow about Heidi in all of those pictures (a glow from being the kind of person she seems to be--open-minded, generous, friendly, kind and eager to dive into what the world has to offer), and she's cute at every stage, it took some guts to share those pictures with the world. It's not always easy to reveal our struggles (though believe me, she was never what would qualify as fat!).

Yikes! I guess this means I'll have to eventually suck it up and do something similar. Seems only right.
