For me, I have got more and more motivation as I’ve gone along. I’ve tried a variety of different approaches; ‘quick fixes’, less restrictive, half hearted, and each time my attempts have failed I’ve been determined to clear it up the next time. I think finding this website has really helped me; the dietary advice, recipes and the forum.
I have had Candida twice, and the first time I cleared it up fairly easily, this time is proving a lot harder. I don’t know when I got it the first time, but I look back at my life when I was around the age of 21 (I’m 31 now) and I’m sure I had it then. I wish I’d known, so I could have done something about it, but I also know what my lifestyle was like, and don’t know how motivated I would have been to clear it up.
It is hard work, especially when you see everyone around you eating so ‘normally’ but try and see it as a positive learning experience. I have learnt so much about what goes into our foods, and wouldn’t want to eat most pre-made foods now anyway.
Don’t beat yourself up about mistakes that you make, and hopefully your desire to be well will be enough to motivate you in the long run.
You’ve done the diet 60%, how about increasing that to 70%, then 80% etc? It will get easier to do.
Good luck 🙂
