Well its been a ride. So far so good. Im still having a bowl of oats with banana and berries for bfast, and dressing on my salad, but other than that i am succeeding. no craving for cooked food and really really enjoyed being able to eat as much as i want!
I have tried raw once before but only lasted 4 days before i went camping and the detox symptoms and were killing me so much i ate everything i could to make them stop and there was so much delicious baking, BBQ smells everywhere that i was well and truly off the wagon. I kept meaning to get back on but the online group that is local seems to be more a veg and smoothie based bunch and with my killer sweet tooth and trying to stick to the 12-1300 calories a day i have been failing at maintaining for the last year, it just never stuck.
My head is killing me, i get really bad lower back pain caused by the detox, ive heard quite a few ppl go through this but i dont want to detox slowly becuase i want to do this part while i am motivated and if i do it slowly i think my bad habits will get the better of me and ill never go through with it.
I was weighing 71.2kg a couple weeks ago but i was training 2 hours a night and eating 1200 calories so naturelly ended up going on a bender with chocolate, bread, pizza, everything i had loved but cut out and have been to scared to step on the scales since. i plan on staying off the scales for a while becuase i am fully prepared to be putting on weight at the start just like so many ppl have. I quit smoking 18 months ago, dont drink, dont do drugs of any type but i am a shocker with calorie restricting and binging so based on that alone i will probably gain but after reading so many posts from ppl i am determined that once i start feeling so much better im not going to mind waiting for the future when it will come down again. fingers crossed it wont take too long. i have been overweight my entire life though and will probably battle my weight on a normal diet for the rest of my life so its probably worth that year to never worry again :)
