Exactly one year ago today I went 811rv. The only thing that I still consumed that was not raw at the time was black coffee, and exactly 8 months ago I kicked that habit adn became 100% 811rv!
Before going 811 I had been suffering from anorexia and bulimia and it almost killed me (I'm 5'8" & I weighed 90lbs at the time(. I was 6 months into recovery, had relapsed half a dozen times, and was stuck at 105 lbs.
At my local health food store I stumbled across "The 80/10/10 Diet." For some reason or another it caught my attention strong enough to compell me to buy it. I took the book home, read it, and with hesitant support from my mother I became 811rv.
Since then I have. . .
- Put on 20 lbs. (a good chuck of it is muscle)
- Had clearer skin
- Become emotionally stable
- Become happier
- Ran a Half Marathon in 2 hrs. 25 min. 55 sec. (I run all the time now)
- Taken up martial arts again
- Taken up lap swimming again
- Started cycling
- Become more confident in myself
- Begun to live my life!
Food is my friend now, no longer my enemy. I can eat up to 3000 calories a day without an ounce of guilt. I enjoy food again. . . I enjoy living again!
I can't believe it's been a year!! =D
