May 9th will be 2 months 811! I just wanted to take a minute and thank everyone here for all thier support and help, I couldn't have done it without you!
I am doing great! I have released 12lbs so far. I look and feel better. People are starting to comment on how healthy I look. I have not fallen off the "shakey wagon" at all in the last 3 weeks or so. I am getting around 2000- 2800 calories a day and that is working for me right now. I am still not as active as I should be, but I am working on that. I am getting in my greens now thanks to Green for Life smoothie recipes, with no upset tummy! Since having green smoothies in my diet I have noticed that I don't crave cooked foods anymore, don't know if its related at all, just something I noticed.
As some of you know, I am no longer taking Depo-Provera shots. My last shot was in January! I have had some symtoms of withdrawl, but nothing like the last time I tried to stop when I was eating SAD! I have had my moments of being a total bitch! Being extremely agrivated for no reason and feeling like shit in general! I really believe eating 811 is the reason I have been able to "Dump the Depo" :D Getting rid of the salt and refined sugar and the splenda has helped so much.
I tell people that I don't know if I will eat like this for the rest of my life, but you know, I can't really see myself eating SAD ever again! Why would I want to go back to feeling tired, foggy, and depressed all the time???? Because I miss feeling BLAH!!??? I don't f#*kin think so!
So I think I will tell them that I will eat like this for as long as it works for me! And from the testamony of all you good people, that should be quite a long time!
