Hey I'm Taylor I live in Evans Colorado and am starting my lifestyle change into the 811rv. To be honest, Ive had a terrible SAD diet. I was in the military for 6 years and was Married. I NEVER and I mean NEVER had any fruits or veggies. I considered myself a meat and potatoes kinda guy lol. I think I even made myself believe that I was to thrive on meat and potatoes haha. But unfortunately, the military got the best of me and caused me to get divorced. Its been a pretty hard road. Ive suffered from depression, anxiety, insomnia and a over eating disorder. The doctors wanted me to take zoloft and paxil and all this other sort of anti this or anti that. I turned to weed lol and I will say that I used it after I got out of the military and I believe that it did help with some of the issues. But it also made some of the other issue worst. Man i got the munchies so bad all I would do is eat eat eat all the bad stuff too like pizza hut taco bell mc donalds just nothing but junk food with the divorce and getting out of the military at the same time real made the depression worst in my opinion. Well now I feel that Its time for me to move on in my life, ive let myself go far to long. I have for the past couple month have basically switched over to a vegan based diet. I still have my times when I just so hungry and just crave junk food. But I am determined to adapt to this lifestyle. Ive already told my best bud that by july 31 2014 I will be 100% 811. Im super excited to regain the strains on life and take control over my life. Im super excited to meet new amazing people in this lifestyle. Please if your in the ft collins greeley loveland area I would love to connect and meet new friends. :) I just bought my first case of bananas haha they are so cheap.
Hey Nicki thanks for the outreach. I love Glenwood Springs, beautiful area. Thank you for the encouraging message, it really helps out when people are on your side :) I'm so excited for this change I can already see changes taking place. I'm buying a road bike in a couple days and with all this new energy I'm going to go crazy on that bike haha. How long have you been 811 for? any newbie advice?
Thanks for the encouragement! I feel that I had that brain fog and its finally gone. Do you eat mainly mono meals? I feel that I feel my best when I eat a mono meal of bananas or mangos.
A little update, I weighted myself and I started at 290 pounds!!!! now 6 months into eating healthier *Raw Vegan for about a month now and will continue FOREVER :-)* have dropped from 290 to 230!!! the weight just melted off by eating organic fruits and veggies in my diet. Im super excited to be 100% Raw Vegan for the rest of my life. This lifestyle is by far the best thing to happen to me in a LONG time. Im so thankful for people like you guys with all the love and encouragement!! :-)
Omg taylor!! congrats on the weight loss! yes, I do feel better with mono meals, but sometimes I find it hard since I want to eat everything that's in my fridge! and yeah I know what you mean.. I'm stuffing myself and still my body is looking better by the week, despite the fact that I haven't been able to exercise in like 2-3 weeks.. freaking summer courses! they're driving me insane!
but keep up with the good work Taylor! you're doing great!
Heres a update on my weight loss before and after 5 months vegan/1 month Raw Vegan :) First Pic was me at my biggest... Surprisingly I was my heaviest around Jan 2013 there. The pic with the bike was taken today 8/5/13
