30 Bananas a Day!

I want to make a quick post about my starting point as of right now just for my own personal record. I hope this blog will show my progression to 811 and I dont want to forget exactly where I started so I can see the improvements raw by itself brings.

Female 27, 5'3 (160cm)
195.6lbs, 88.5kg (obese, but thirty pounds lighter than my highest weight)
Insulin resistant pre diabetic
high cholesterol
1/2 to a 1 pack a day smoker
heavy drinker
VERY high and difficult to control blood pressure 170/100 without medication
PCOS (unable to have children at the moment)
Acanthosis nigricans and skin tags (delicious!)
severe and very limiting anxiety

Luckily I don't feel that I suffer from depression but I could be happier.

So there it is, all my dirty shit that is ruining my life up here for the internet to see.

I am a nurse, and I am not an idiot. I know I am dying. I see my future very clearly in the stories of the patients I care for everyday. I see my death in the deaths of other people constantly, and yet I don't change....until now of course. (I am 20 bananas in today!)

I may lean a lot on all of you for a while. I may be very whiny, and moody and well....scared to change. I have never been so needy and infantile in my life. I have never wanted something so bad and had it seem so out of reach. The frustration of it is turning me into a child. I hope you all know how much I appreciate the things I have read. You guys are changing my life.

Speaking of life changing, this is by far my favorite DurianRider video and I have watched it at least 3 times today.

I love that video, too.

I've got a starting point blog entry like this, as well. You can set it so only you can see it - in case you didn't notice that. But if you're fine with going public... brave lady! I think you'll see huge improvements really quick -especially your emotional and mental outlook on things, so it will get easier. That's what I found anyway.

Hi! Good luck with everything! Have you tried a fast yet? That maybe a way to kick start your healing. I know a guy who recently stopped smoking with a little encouragement from me. You can do it. Lobelia is an herb that can help with addictions. Agrimony is a really great flower essence that is also good. They are sold at regular herb type shops as tinctures so you just put a few drops in water.

Have you read dougs book yet?
