Good Morning, its 0430 agin and as usual I am wide frekin awake! I am getting used to this now. So, the big shift in lifestyle,what was it? Simply put I have been too fat for too long. One of my neighbors had told me her father had been on insulin and basically homebound for sometime. he began eating a plant based diet and began to be ablate reduce or otherwise all together quit taking his insulin in most days. This is pretty awesome. I have been plagued with borderline sugar levels, cholesterol issues, thyroid problems, and yes, I was at one time 412 pounds!!! I will include some photos for you to see the photo evidence!! When I had my first back surgery I killed myself essentially starving myself for 6 months and all I could lose was just under 100lbs! about 40kg. So, I had to find a way to not really lose weight, but get the rest of my body happy again! I was taking over 200 different meds a day and felt iek the walking dead!
So, I adopted the vegan and whole plant lifestyle;e just to see a few things…1. does it work to reduce my drug intakes 2. will it help my heeakth. 3, will I lose some weight…
I have and am losing weight, down to a 46 from a 60 waist in two months! havent measured lately since ally clothes won’t stay on now! I eat the vegan way primarily! The doctor wants me to give up all oils too and coconut oil. I am trying! But the real great thing here is this….I have energy again….I feel good again…..I TAKE NO MEDICATIOS OF ANY KIND OTHER THAN MY INHALERS FOR ASTHMA!
Now fo the kicker, I was on the following list of meds for years: Oxycodone, Dilaudid, fentanyl, Lyrica, baclofen, vicodin, synthroid, Statins, Vitamin D supplement, lasix, testosterone, Celebrex, adderall, valium, phentermine, and a few others here and there.
When I quit taking the drugs, which I did all at once and cold turkey, That is when I started to really notice the alters coming out again. I had completely forgotten about their existence again. I had dreams, about these things! I never thought they were real! I had been in therapy because I FELT crazy! There is no better way to describe it.
Now that I am embracing both my alters and drug fee, animal product free lifestyle, I am beginning to learn that the reason I have had all these issues for most of if not all of my life was because I couldn’t accept my alters! Now I have began to embrace them as best I can, allowing them to be as individual as they need to be and allowing the freedom to express their thoughts and feelings just as anyone else would. This is helping. If I try to keep them down, it gets uncontrollable and things get weird fast.
So picture time….here is me before and after I quit eating animals and their products…I don’t even eat honey now. 😦
