Separating myself from stuff seems to be easier than it used to be, even as little as a year ago.. I wonder if that has something to do with the determination to lose weight as well…. I started the oʇǝʞ (yep, upside down text, so I don’t get a million ads for special food) diet on August 4th. The diet completely changes the way that I eat…. and with all the salmon, and salads and fresh food, its costing a lot more as well. What really got me to change my eating was the muscle pain from statins. I couldn’t handle the all-over body aches from the atorvastatin so I just quit taking them.. My doctor will not like it but at least I can get out of bed now. The carbs were hard to stop, but after about a week the addiction anxiety from no sugar and breads started to fade. I’ve lost about 8 pounds in the first month.
