  • **PrimalRAW - Primal Journal**

    Hey guys,

    My Primal eating has been GREAT in the past few weeks.

    I quit my job because it was causing me to fall into a really bad mindset.

    I do pay bills and everything but thats been taken care of with the little amount of savings I had so right now it feels like I get to start over. That feels good.

    I think thats why my Primal eating is so good lately. I'm not stressed and I can concentrate on what I really need to do.

    I'm eating alot of Seafood which is strange because I normally don't like it. Hmmm.

    Generally I feel alot better about the world and my outlook. Unfortunately I don't feel quite as positive about myself.

    Thats something I'm working on though.

            Not cooking is becoming a real problem.

            I need to work up the courage to start cooking, but I get horrible anxiety even thinking about cooking when my Roomates are home.


            I guess I'm going to start with a completely Raw based diet with seeds and nuts to start with, I guess it's going to be Vegan for a while.

            I'm cool with that. I need to detox anyway!

                I have been thinking a few things over.Mainly that Primal eating is definitely the way to go for me. This is set is stone.Another is that I give too much power to my Eating Disordered thoughts.

                It feels like suddenly I have looked up and after X years I'm still in the same position. Unlike my peers I didn't go to university or do any type of study.

                I was running for 4 hours a day, counting calories, crying over eating lettuce leaf,purging food from my body, weighing myself around 15 times a day, reading books on Health and Fitness,fainting, constantly cleaning, suffering from horrible anxiety, etc.

                Now it's depressing to think that I have lost all that time and for what? Here I stand 31kg heavier with permanent damage to my body with a shred of self esteem and a bombardment of negative thoughts every minute of everyday.

                My friends on the other hand, go and experience University! They go out and have fun on the weekends and they get to cram in the last couple of days for an exam.

                I wish I had that.

                This brings me back to giving more power to my Eating Disorder menace.

                -Everyday I don't do something proactive to better myself, the ED wins.

                -Everytime I skip a meal or binge and purge in frustration, the ED wins.

                -Everytime I think I negative thought about myself and believe it, the ED wins.

                Well, you know what?

                It's time for ME to start winning.

                I have to reclaim my life back. It's NOT going to happen overnight, I know this. Just acknowledging that I feel this way is a step.

                It's all going to be about baby steps. If I fail I will dust myself off and get back up.

                    I second kuno1chi!

                    All we can do with the past is take what strengthens us and leave the rest, sounds like you've got your feet on the ground.

                    Good luck working around the roommates, I feel ya, my closest friends are vegan (I'm mostly carnivorous) and often comment smugly on my eating habits (which affects me more than they know) they don't even know that I prefer meat raw!

                      First of all, you are GORGEOUS.

                      Secondly, I won't pretend to know exactly how you feel but just know that I have gone through many of the same things you have since I was about 11 years old. I have had to accept my body at a much higher weight than my mind would like it to be and that kills me as well.

                      You have a great community here to support you. It's really weird how a bunch of strangers from around the world can be so supportive of people they have never met, isn't it? It's pretty cool though.

                      Anyways, just know you're not alone and we're all here for you!

                          Thanks for your kind words everyone. I guess I need to hear it from time to time to reassure myself!

                            I must start getting some nutrients into my body.

                            I HAVE to work on my fears on preparing food and consuming it in my own house! Granted I am renting and have roommates, but still I live there and I have no reason to be scared! It's completely irrational, I know...The fear is just so damn real and controlling.

                            Ughhh, I managed to hurt myself the other month by falling off a bike. I fell right into the ground and a branch left a nasty gash right on my chest which has now turned into a horrible scar!!

                            Ughhh, the doctor told me only plastic surgery will make it fade and minimise the appearance! I'm doomed to wearing turtlenecks forever!!

                            This is going to cost me a fortune to get fixed...great.

                            Has anyone ever had to have a scar removed by plastic surgery?? If so did it help? How much did you have to pay?

                            Blood test results tomorrow! I'm abit nervous!

                              If you are nervous about cooking and eating around your roommates, just ask them if they want to do it with you.
