I have been a member of the sparkpeople site for 6 years. In Feb. I saw Fat Sick & Nearly Dead and saw Joe Cross at Whole Foods in Austin on the eve of starting my own juice fast. I fasted 21 days, easily and it changed my life. In the process of blogging about my juice fast on Spark, I met LFROV811 (Karen) who was on her 92 day juice fast. I learned a lot from her and really appreciated all the support I got from the folks on Spark. Karen also introduced me to 80/10/10 and when I completed my fast I committed to 30 days 811. I was very reluctant and nervous, having been unsuccessful at high fat raw in the past. (I have been a low-fat vegan for 8.5 years). I have the book and am toddling toward 811, cravings are back...mostly to bread!
When a very vicious attack was made on Karen last week and she was evicted from Spark (and came here), I was really bummed. I liked the way things were. I expected people to be respectful of others...silly me. Fear & a need to "save others" from the 811 demons was out in full force. Didn't see that coming. So here I am...testing the waters. I don't have a lot of time to blog, so I don't think I'll be doing two blogs.
My spark name was Skinnyminnie25.
