did an experiment

so today i planned to go shopping with my aunt and cousin at tysons mall. I've only been there once and didn't know any vegan places to go to and decided to take some dates with me and just play the day by ear food wise. 

so for breakfast i had 5 dates - 332 cals 

gluten free pasta with tomato sauce and spinach for lunch - prob about 300/350 cals 

dinner was rice with spinach and celery - about 640 cals 

and then 3 cliff bars - 725 

so only now have…

feel like ill never be skinny again

while i am more comfortable with my body i want to be as thin as i was again. i miss being skinny and not being self conscious about my body, i used to have a hard flat stomach, and now i have a not toned wide stomach and i just feel huge. i don't want to do or work out as much as i did to get to that point, i want to do it the healthy way this time but its taking forever and i just want to be thin again

need sleep

i really need to get my sleep schedule back where i am in bed falling asleep by 9 or 10 pm and lately i haven't even been able to fall asleep before 12 or even 1 am sometimes. if i eat anything less than 3k calories i will literally be too hungry to go to sleep, and once I'm hungry sleeping is almost out of the question. i have adrenal fatigue, so I've been trying to just rest and get the cals in (not forcing I'm literally just hungry all the time) but i still can't fall asleep idk what is…

im not looking for pity or anything at all. just a space to write how I'm feeling and i really feel I'm like the only one who can not find the right balance of what i need from this diet to be my ideal weight / lose weight. i know its about health and the health benefits I've received thus far completely outweighs the only cons which is slow colon and weight gain but to finally lose the weight and show all the haters how great this diet, i just can't wait for that day

don't know what to call this but advice appreciated

so over the past two weeks I've been exercising nearly every day with maybe 2/3 days off a week just depending on the day. I'm doing light exercise but still working up a good sweat. I've kept my salt low, increased my water getting good hours of sleep and while i have noticed that a few of my size L tank tops are a little looser on me than they were about two weeks ago, i still don't know why I'm not having regular bms. it could be because I'm dehydrated? and I'm still cleaning out and…

i can't digest bananas if i drink a lot of water?

still so confused how people drink so much water

the only times I've ever been LEAN on this lifestyle was drinking half a liter to a liter of water. and i see people guzzling gallons of water and i don't understand like i want to be you guzzling water too but it doesn't work with my body, even now I've increased my water drinking for the past few days and I've hardly pooped and felt so uncomfortable and its driving me crazy i don't know what to do, drink less water? does drinking 3 liters not work for everyone? i jut wish i knew my ed…

don't know what to do as usual

still so fat from being on this lifestyle. tried to have a fully raw day and my bowel didn't even move, like i wasn't digesting the fiber from the fruits i was eating at all. and then i had some black bean soup and finally i had a bm but ugh, i just want this lifestyle to work so badly. i want to be the slim frutarian so badly and its like no matter what i do my body wants to stay fat and hold onto as much water and weight as it can. i try really hard not to think about the weight aspect and…

why my friends are always hungry and freaking out over small things

because they aren't carbed up!!!!!!! literally i hardly ever see my friends eating any carbs, always avoiding carbs or adding tons of dairy and meat with them which is soooo bad for them but to each their own they look at me like I'm crazy for eating so many carbs (between 2500-3000 cals) at the weight that i am which none of them understand that all my weight gain is from my past 3 year eating disorder but i feel awesome and i wish they could feel this way too. my friend jessica last night…

don't want to eat cooked food anymore

at least not right now i don't. i want to be fully raw but everyday I have intense cravings for salt and while i haven't been getting the best sleep the past few days I've been waking up ravenous, not actually but my mind is ravenous and i feel like thats because I've been eating even just a little bit of cooked food. i feel like its not working for me anymore and i need to switch over back to fully raw. my one problem with fully raw is that i only like about 5 fruits, bananas, dates,…

first raw day in a while

the past few days I've been eating a TON of cooked food which i love, all love fat vegan cooked food so nothing too out there just rice, beans and a little guac from chipotle (literally my weakness) but today I've been fully raw so far and feeling pretty good just want my bloated stomach to go down. so far today I've had a dateorade with coconut sugar and celery for breakfast and lunch, and right after lunch i was craving salt so i made a HUGE salad with a head of romaine, some spinach, and…

as much as i believe in this lifestyle i have yet to lose any type of weight on it. if anything my weight has probably kept going up and more and more my clothes don't fit. I'm trying to hard to not think about that and just enjoy life but its so hard when I'm clearly the heaviest one in the room. I'm just quite saddened by this and pray that one day ill be a success story as well where someone recovered ed and lost weight on this lifestyle but right now that day seems so far away and i…

worst nightmare

so it turns out that while I've been thinking that I've been maintaining I've actually gained 12 pounds which puts me at 162, this is not only embarrassing but so sad for me to accept. i have no gained 45 pounds being on this lifestyle starting last august. do i keep with it? will this weight ever come off/ will my body ever balance out? does anyone have a story like this?

is this good or bad

so today i was in a car accident where i was rear ended turning into my neighborhood and hit my head pretty hard from whiplash and once i told my mom that she immediately rushed us over to the hospital so they could make sure i didn't have a concussion. while checking in they made me get on a scale and while i haven't been on one since march, i stepped on and was about 150 pounds. now while this is disheartening as this is the heaviest I've ever been, when i stepped on the scale in march i…

family problems with 801010

I've been eating this way for almost a year now, a year in august to be exact. it actually took me about 6 months to even start putting on weight from this diet and since then it has not come off. in the mean time on a cellular level i think i have been internally healing. I noticed that my sleep is much better, my skin has colour to it again, i think much more clearly now, my eyes have gotten lighter, my hair is thicker, my nails are so much stronger, and my hair and nails grow so much…

life and love

for once one of my posts have nothing to do with me obsessing over my weight. but while i was at the movies with my mom tonight seeing the fault in our stars, there was one movie preview that inspired me. this life we live is meant to be lived to the fullest, doing wild crazy and irrational things by people that love themselves enough to let themselves live. while most students who graduate college search for jobs and join the corporate business system that many americans call life, i want…

so upset

it seems that the more fruit and veg that i eat the fatter i get, my double chin is unreal, i can hardly stand with my feet together cause of how fat my thighs have gotten. i properly food combine, i drink 3-4 + liters of water a day, usually get pretty good sleep a bad night is 6-7 hours which still isn't terrible. it kills me to see all my friends with their stick thin legs eating whatever they want not having a worry in the world. while i do think this lifestyle is the way to go i don't…

feeling like ****

i feel like total ****, even though i am carbed up, I've been doing this 9 months and still no permanent weight loss. i go home to see my friends in 3 days and i don't want them to see me like this, its even harder when my mom just watches me eat and is like do you really need to eat all of that. i eat between 2500-3000 cals this is where i feel my best so I'm obviously not going to try restricting especially coming from an ed background but i want the weight to come off more than anything.…
