Today I celebrate being two months sugar free!! When I first started this journey, I honestly thought it would be another one of my flavour of the month diets where I would spend my days hungry and feel like I was missing out on life. WRONG!! This is the first time in my life that I feel that I'm actually living. I am 8kg lighter, my skin is looking sensational (hey I used to have to use creams on my face... so I'm celebrating this one!!), I have more energy, I am constantly full and I am LOVING EATING!! I am also finding that I am now exercising socially (team sports, walks with the kids) instead of like an exercised crazed demon who would feel guilty on her one rest day a week!!
This is all in part to reading David's books and everything making sense.
To those just starting, don't give up!! It gets better I promise.
I was hoping to just add my pictures because I did not want this to seem like I am only writing this to publicise my blog. This post comes from a good place in my heart that wants to inspire others. However there is no option to link in a picture.
This is my 2 month progress pics
Hi Jessica ....... my Mum's name :-) What an inspiring story. I lost 10kg in 6 months a couple of years ago, the same was you did. Now I'm 84, 182cm tall, waist 94cm weight 74kg. As an Adult-Asperger's person, I have been on a sort of crusade since to try to get people to stop eating themselves into an early grave. But also trying to educate the doctors I meet - most of them don't like having their cages rattled. But slowly, mainstream medicine is starting to realize the falsity of all the sat-fat and calories-in-calories-out nonsense we have been fed for decades.
Also if you haven't read David's "Toxic Oils" and "Eat Real Food" I recommend you do so, mainly to learn about the role of polyunsaturted fat in all this.
I'd like to suggest too, that you post your story in the "Introduce Yourself" area of the forum as it seems to the most active one. And you are doing just that. I'm sure it will inspire a lot of members, especially those who need some encouragement.
If you have the time I'd be interested to hear about how you set up your blog. I've been thinking of doing so but feel a bit daunted at the prospect. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi John, Thank you so much for your reply!
That is great that you are on a mission to educate. I have read the books that you mentioned and feel as though my whole persepective on eating has changed!! I just want to grab all my friends and make them take this journey to better their lives.
In regards to starting a blog, it depends what you want to get out of it. I use the web host Weebly for my blog because it is basically a drop and drag program. You don't need to know any code. It is very self explanatory. You can use it for free or you can pay for upgrades on the site.
Have a read of this:
Don't be scared off by it. I had a look at most of the above before choosing. Just signed up to all the free ones and played around with them to see which was the easiest for me and had what I wanted.
If you ever get stuck and need some help, I would be happy to do whatever I can. I am no tech guru but I could help you as best as I could!! Good luck x
Re the blog, thanks. I'll have a go . . . when I can "find" time :-(
Re the crusade, one of the funniest and yet most profound sayings in the English language is "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink". Some people just don't want to know. And there are really only two avenues of persuasion open to you . . . . . . you as a living example, and speaking in parables , aka "sowing seeds". The reason Jesus did so, I presume, was to put ideas into people's minds which MAY bear fruit in due course. But hey, it's frustrating!!
