So this marks two months on the paleo diet for me. As of right before Thanksgiving, I’ve lost 29 pounds. I barely exercise and I don’t think about food all day anymore. I’ve got 50-60 pounds to go and I don’t plan on stopping until April 1st. I might start exercising just to give a little boost. I don’t want to become too skinny though. I am trying for a toned, normal weight.
I can’t say the diet has “changed my whole outlook”, but it’s given me some order and discipline which I need while I’m not in school.
Although I’m getting sick of fish and sweet potatoes, the payoff is pretty big. If anyone gained weight on meds and wants to lose it, I really recommend this diet
The best part IMO about the diet, is that it allows cheat meals. It gives me something to look forward to.
In other news, I am starting EMDR sometime in the next two months. I have a new therapist who is trained in Peter Levine’s work, and she says I am very traumatized and out of touch with reality.
Idk if you all knew this, but during my first hospital visit 1.5 years ago, I could barely form words into sentences, and I didn’t leave the house afterwards for a month.
But… I still feel like ■■■■ even though superficially I maybe have made progress. I can do basic things like group therapy etc. But I think this illness has taken away my soul.
to end on a positive note… my prophetic delusions are gone. Completely.
