I was healthy and fit up until I moved to United States in 1999. Weight started piling up within few months even though I was very active. In 1 year I gained 50lbs and started my journey of trying to lose it. 50lbs turned into 60, 80, etc. For 12 years I struggled with weight, mostly going from 200-220lbs. In July 2010 my hormones went all crazy and I started bleeding. Doctors chose to give me more hormones to balance me out and stop the bleeding. It didn't stop for 6 month. It got so bad that I would get out of bed for 1 hour and would have to go back and take a nap, be up for 1-2hrs and take another nap. Sleeping over 16hours a day. Once bleeding stopped and I was able to get back on my fit I realized that in 6 months I gained nearly 80lbs. Devastated and depressed, it took me few months to get myself together and start doing something about it. In March 2011 I went 99% Raw overnight and haven't looked back yet.
My starting weight was around 285lbs and by the time I've created this profile I got down to 265lbs. I have a long way to go to a healthy me, but it's a journey I am gladly taking for me, for my health and for my future.

After a 5 month break and recovery from surgery I came back to continue my healthy journey.
Started Juice Feast on December 9th @ 228lbs
Completed 92days Juice Feast on March 10th @ 187.4lbs

    Are you still on the island? Hope you're doing great either way.
    I was wondering if you can recommend a good raw uncookbook. Something for a newbie without access to exotic ingredients. So far, the best book I can pick on Amazon is Going Raw by Judita Wignall. Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

    Hey how's banana island going?

    Sorry it took me so long to respond to your comment. I certainly want to go back on the island. I think I'm gonna do it next month when I go and house sit for 2 weeks. New environment and new routine so I hope it will make for a good reboot.

    Talk to you soon!

    Hello Kneyrus! Thanks for commenting on my blog. You're right, we all have a hidden chef inside of us. Sometimes it's more hidden than others, though - my recipes yesterday weren't very good. But now I know!
    See you around on SP or somewhere else!
    Take care,
