Here I am primal world... and I am ready. I have many reasons for wanting to try this way of life... not even try it, to live it and be it and engross myself in it. The first reason is it isn't far off of what I was doing this summer, which I will get back to in a minute. Second is, what have I got to lose? Had I stumbled upon this on my own I might be more timid, but I didn't. Someone I trust and love told me about this site and way of living, and she has some major results to show for it. Lastly, I need it. I am 22 years old and 230 lbs... that is after I lost 30 lbs in a month and a half on a body cleanse. A very healthy one I might add, very similar to this. No grains was the primary ingredient to that and I am sure it is what helped. I have kept it off even with completely horrific eating habits over the last few months due to living arrangements.
Where it all started was... well when I was a kid I suppose. I was picked on for being "fat" when really I just had really cute chubby kid cheeks. I wasn't overweight at all until the stress of being picked on drove me to eating. I ate and ate and ate, and I still eat when I am upset. Then when my folks got divorced I started doing better, dropped some weight and was exercising regularly... loving it. Then my dad came back and I gained 32 lbs in 3 months... it was bad. Moving forward I got married at the age of 21 and my husband supported my bad eating habits, between our wedding and the day I left him (nine months) I gained another 35 lbs. When I left I stopped drinking soda, and started a mostly vegetarian with some lean proteins cleanse. It was great! The first 3 days I felt like I was coming down from meth, I am not kidding. I was working at McDonalds and eating as many fruits and vegetables I could distract myself with. It worked... i dropped 30 lbs and here I am today 230 lbs. My goal is not a weight... it is a size. My original size was 18 pant. I want to be a 12/10 by graduation in May so when I return from internship people don't recognize me. Also, so I can dedicate myself fully to my career as an interpreter I need to be healthy REALLY healthy, not kind of. My ultimate goal is to be where my body tells me to be... to be comfortable and confident in my own skin. To be happy for real. I want to listen to everything my body has to say: sleep, eat, drink, walk, run, etc.
Holy crap I have written a lot. I am just really really excited!
Starting this minute I am beautiful, single, and primal.
