In 2004 I was 233 lbs and lost 90 lbs. I accomplished this on a somewhat low carb diet. I went vegan in 2009 and gained 20 lbs then got PG and gained 50 more. In 2011 I started losing weight and by 2013 I had lost 70 lbs. I did that by just eating healthy whole foods and cutting out all junk food. I had a mental breakdown in May of 2013 and was diagnosed as bipolar. I have steadily been gaining weight and my binge eating that I've suffered from my whole life has reared it's ugly head again. I joined SP so I could have a place to vent my food emotions and try to get a handle on my weight before I gain all that I've lost back. I read the book Grain Brain and am following a High Fat Low Carb diet because the book suggests it helps with mental illnesses. I started this diet Dec 26th 2013 at 152 lbs. I lost 13 lbs within the 1st month but then binge eating has caused me to gain and lose back in forth when I go off the diet and get back on it.

My Goals:
To overcome my life long struggle with binge eating. To focus on eating healthy for my mental well being and not just for a number on the scale.

My Program:
The Grain Brain Diet. High Fat Low Carb to help with my mental illness.

Personal Information: I always welcome new friends that want to share in positve healthy living. My husband and I enjoy kayaking and obstacle course racing.

Other Information:
I started weightlifting in Nov 2011 and Added running in Dec 2012. I've ran countless 5ks including obstacle races. 10Ks and one half marathon. I used to love running but lately have lost my passion and I just walk and lift weights. Seems like since my breakdown in May 2013 I just go through the motions of exercise. I don't enjoy it like I used to. Not sure if it's the medication or depression.

    Hey girl! I was just attracted to your page and completing a challenge for our Bipolar Mania team. If you scroll the threads to the Challenge section, select "I Challenge You", you will also be able to complete this challenge. My name is Becci, I am 39yo living in Massachusetts. I am a Traumatic Brain Injury survivor and fit in mostly chair exercises and low-impact types of exercise as opposed to your diving? Kayaking? Running even if the desire wanes at times!? I look forward to Sparking with you!
