30 Bananas a Day!

What Other "Toxic" Things Have You Cut From Your Life Since Becoming LFRV?

I have changed a lot in my life the past two years..."trimmed the fat" if you will, including:


-quitting a job with an insufferable boss

-removing "toxic" relationships from my life



-simplifying almost everything! (getting rid of the car and going all-bike, for instance)


Its like I woke up one day and realized I COULD change these things in my life. Then I actually did it. 


I just got fed up and inspired all at the same time. Now I'm reading a lot about lifestyle design (how to work smarter, not harder).

Good thread! I got rid of a friend who was emotionally manipulating me. I also kind of got rid of facebook! yay :)

I got rid of old emotional habits and became criticism, blame, gossip, and complaint free.

I ended a toxic relationship with my mother. It has now been months and it feels like a huge weight has been lifted!

I left a toxic job that was weighing me down to follow my dreams. 

I've also been purging excess clothing and useless items that do not provide fulfillment or happiness 

That is where I am too, pretty much exactly! It is so nice to feel in control!

Also got rid of the car, getting bikes.  The first thing we decided to do was to stop renting an apartment...more about renting a place we didn't own, couldn't control, for way too much money, and having the landlord come in, working on things all the time, etc.  That allowed us to also get rid of paying utilities, phone bills, etc. and decluttering.


We spent more than half a year traveling after we first started with lfrv.  It was great!  Now, we're in the process of getting rid of our car.  We don't use it anymore because we got into a car crash, but we were contemplating going without it anyway.  We're still working on decluttering.  I think a lot of the things we stopped using/doing we'd done a few years before we got onto lfrv...but cutting out superfoods and oils has been nice too! 


That's a great way of describing how you came to start changing and clearing out things that weren't working for you in your life.  Feel free to share what you learn about lifestyle design!

Well, I've been vegan for 10 years so I started on the "clearing" journey before my raw life, but I got rid of


a slew of "frenemies",

tons of clothing,

buying overly packaged items,

my mother in certain ways (she knows no boundaries)


I said yes to:




feeling good about myself




biking (learned how to ride at 26 years old)'

being authentic and honest


Great positive thread!


I learned to bike at 24, I think... just got a new bike too, I can't wait to get biking again!
