devin reid, 30 years old female, weighing 52 kg / 114.4 lbs, 64 in /162.56 cm tall, From New York, United States US
Doing 30 days of Juice/Water Fasting. Starting December 16, 2011
Reasons for Fasting:
Recently gained 15 lbs . I have been vegan for 15 years , recently have just been sitting at my computer ( due to work ) for 18 hours a day ... little gym time... stress eating, boredom eating, excessively eating. I also never drank alcohol until I moved to new york. I just feel sluggish, heavy, addicted to caffeine and carbs, too much sugar, not enough juicing , i take vitamins but still my body has changed , i don't feel the same. I was hit by a car this year and not being able to work out etc for a long period of time sent me into a depression where i ate and gained weight. I want to clean myself out physically and mentally ,press the reset button. My bones are very tiny ( my mother for instance who is 5'2" weighed 110 lbs 9 months pregnant. We are tiny people so this extra weight is really slowing me down and has destroyed my confidence, my focus, my attention , my mood. Looking to lose 10-15 lbs.
Past Fasting Experience:
Do juice fasts, acupuncture, yoga, 100% raw diet most of the time - I go back and forth and have some time periods where im more loose with it etc but i have been too "loose" with it all for the past year . I keep making excuses for myself and have no been consistent. I need to regain that control over my state of mind towards being productive and positive , not self destructive.
spirulina, vitamin C, E, D, zinc, calcium, folic acid, b12, omega 3,
Relevant Medical History:
endometriosis , other than that always been really healthy.
State of Mind:
I always have this self destructive all or nothing attitude. I'll think " oh a little wont hurt..... " then i eat a little of something bad etc. and that snowballs into " well you've already ruined it might as well start over again tomorrow and just overeat crap for the rest of today , since its already ruined." I need support and focus and reassurance that i am mentally strong enough to do this long enough to see results and not give up when they don't happen overnight.
