Today I am very emotional, so I am really struggling to keep on the diet. I’m trying to keep focus and not mindlessly graze-which resulted in me eating a potato chip earlier.
SO…I’m going to focus on why I am doing this. I think that as we make this journey, and begin to feel better on a regular basis, it is easy to forget where we each came from. So, I will remind myself.
Since I began this diet, I can now:
Get out of bed first thing in the morning without major aches and pains
I can drop weight-so far, I have lost 21 pounds that crept on me as I starved myself on my high carb, high sugar, low calorie diet
My hair is growing back, though I’m still finding too many lost hairs.
Go to the bathroom-YAY!
Get through the day without a nap…..
These are my big-life altering-gains. I am so thankful to have found this path and begin to heal myself.
What are you thankful for?August 8, 2013 at 8:16 am #108769

I’m so thankful for this forum and this diet!!
I’m a week shy of 8 mos and I cannot tell you the difference that going through all of this has made. I was literally going to die – either from malnutrition (I couldn’t digest anything) or suicide (why live if you can’t feed yourself?) until I got on track with the strict diet and protocol.
I am not all the way better yet, but I’m almost there. I was able to go on tour this summer, work with teenagers all day at a sleepaway summer camp for over a week, I am not grumpy all the time, I’m not anxious or depressed all the time, and I can actually eat food again!

This forum has made such a difference for me as well! I was pretty much dead 6 or 7 months ago. I couldn’t function–couldn’t sleep, anxious, depressed, crying all the time, extreme fatigue, migraines 24-7 and on and on. I had to take a leave from my Masters degree because I couldn’t function at all. I didn’t think I could ever study, let alone teach, again.
Now, while I’m not out of the woods yet, I have never in my life had so much energy. The migraines and the rest of it (just some weird visual stuff and thrush left for symptoms) are gone. And this month I’ve started work on me thesis again!
So grateful for this place.
