well the first two weeks of the diet, i was ready to give up..or blow my head off
(Well not really but felt that way)
i HATED the diet, i hated what i had to eat and could no longer eat, i had ZERO energy. walking across the room was the hardest thing to do. i stayed hidden in my house,..either sleeping or researching. then after about 3-4 weeks in..i felt great..for two weeks..then i started feeling bad again. now two..going on three months now. now i am up and down. one day good..next day not so good. but i seem to be doing slightly better.
today i thought..OMG, i cant eat like this forever..this is crazy. then i thought..i wont have too but i will always have to watch what i eat and how much. that i will have to limit myself on sweets, breads,starches..etc. and that i will always have to take some form of pills..being probiotics, digestive enzymes and probably coconut oil.
anyway, i cant think that far ahead or it depresses the hell out of me..so for today, i figure out my plan of whats on the menu..and go from there. as i was saying to someone earlier..this is the worst diet in the world to be on…but the outcome has to be much greater. Fewer Drs to see, less meds to take, and i will be able to function better in society. this is very debilitating so anything is better than this..whatever the sacrifice may be…i will do it. and i know how very hard it is. i struggle in my mind everyday. it will get better…it just takes time and effort and try to not think too far ahead. take it one day at a time..cause if you dont..it can overwhelm you.
