Thank you so much for your post Janis, I'm really glad things are better for you, I will show my son and hopefully it will inspire him.
My before and after pics are on my blog
thats quite a transformation given that it came out from doing 'yoga'... impressive!!....can you be quantitative about how much calories were you eatn and whether you were counting protein(grams) or not ?
I don't know exactly how many calories, but my diet for 1 month was pretty similar everyday. 2 Green smoothies a day. each with 12 bananas/ or less banana and some papaya, a cup of sultanas, and a huge handful of greens and herbs; including- nasturtium, parsley, comfrey, varieties of lettuce, fennel, baby kale, herb robert, yarrow. All grown bio dynamically and picked fresh each day. snacked on about 5 apples and 5 mandarins throughout the day. Then for dinner was a Huge salad, with a 5 mandarin and 2 tsp tahini dressing. There was more variety than that, and not always that many calories. No idea about how much protein, but I was eating a ridiculous amount of greens, because they taste sooo good young and fresh!
I'm coming up on 6 months LFRV, and I've lost just over 190 lbs :) I wanted to post some before photos and a few photos that were taken here recently:
I forget exactly when these pictures were taken, but I was sitting around 450-460 lbs. On April 15, 2012 which was day 1 of my transition I weighed in at 455.4 lbs. For the longest time I was addicted to food and I was always depressed. I finally got to a point where I was sick and tired of being sick and tired; I needed to start doing something about it.
- Blood Pressure was always around 180/90.
- Cholesterol was 270 mg/dl taken a year ago.
- Type 2 diabetic.
- Zero energy.
These pictures were taken within the last week at 263 lbs.
- Blood Pressure 131/75 taken 7 weeks ago.
-Cholesterol 185 mg/dl taken 10 weeks ago.
- Type 2 diabetes is gone.
-Energy through the roof!
I'll update again here when I hit the one year mark :)
Whoa! That's some transformation!
And look at those blood markets drop O.O
This stuff really works!
Wow! That was fast! Awesome!
Holy Crapolli, dude!
You're a Trojan Warrior, a Gladiator, a Superstar!
You look so much better + happier now!
What you are doing + have done is so rare, so monumentally courageous + inspiring!
You give so much hope to others out there with weight issues...
Keep it up, dude!
Can't imagine how tough it must have been for you but delighted to see that you are over the worst now + getting healthier + happier everyday.
Also, I think it would be useful for everyone to know, how tall are you.....?
