I can't remember how I stumbled upon 811 and 30bananasaday but I'm so glad I did! I've been silently lurking here for about 3 years actually! I've made some minor dietary and lifestyle changes since then but not nearly enough. I figured it's time to introduce myself and really make this shift permanent. I realized that being healthy and happy is all I dream about now (it's definitely not where I'm currently at) so what's the point of constantly hoping that someday things will magically fall into place, without actually doing anything? I'm finally ready to make a serious effort, and I think speaking up will be a big part of that. I'll be graduating from college in August with a degree in Marine Biology, but I'm not sure if I'm going to actually use it. Finding 811 has caused a gradual paradigm shift for me...my interests have totally changed. Biology just doesn't do it for me anymore, but the thought of leaving it behind still makes me sad. I'm at a bit of a crossroads and I have absolutely no idea where I'm going to end up, but this change just feels right, despite the uncertainty. I think the biggest thing the 811 lifestyle has instilled in me is to embrace change and follow my instincts.

I'm living at home with my family and my parents who aren't particularly supportive of 811. It doesn't help that I go to great lengths to avoid drawing attention to myself. I'm REALLY shy--like can barely hold a conversation with people kind of shy. I'm hoping that carbing up will help address that, but I think participating in the forums will be equally if not more helpful. I need to find my voice so that I'm not so self conscious about my diet and lifestyle in day-to-day life. I've also gradually stumbled into an eating disorder that began due to stress at school in October, and it's been two steps forward one step back since then. I desperately need some guidance on how to break free from it and get my life back.
