I’ve decided to throw down 520 bucks and start the V-Diet today. In addition to the supplements the V-Diet outlines, I’ve added Se7en and Rhodiola Rosea.
I have seldom felt good about the way I look, much less comfortable in my own skin. I’ve always had a “tummy” growing up. My mom claimed it was just left over baby fat, but that never eased my mind. When I was three I had a stomach virus. I threw up certain foods, other foods I could keep down. The foods I couldn’t keep down I choose not to eat for fear that I would thrown them up again. Through out my childhood I had predominantly mac & cheese, grilled cheeses, and burger king chicken tenders, and a lot of milk. I practically survived off junk foods. My mom had always offered me different foods, but I was afraid to try them. It was difficult for me growing up and going to friend’s houses, or parties not eating what the other kids ate. I wanted to keep my abnormal eating habits a secret so no one would think I was strange.
Finally, when I was a junior in high school, I liked this guy and on early dismissal days my friends (him included) went to the nearest gatti’s pizza buffet. I didn’t eat pizza, but I was eager to fit in. So I tried it the night before in front of the mirror and imagine myself like a normal person who eats pizza. i liked it! I could finally eat with my friends and feel like I fit in.
After being bulemic for a while (wanting to eat food to fit in, but not wanting to eat because I was afraid of getting fat; double edged sword kind of thing) I went through a break up and a couple months after that I decided to get personal help with my disordered eating habits.
In 2 years I expanded my menu including healthy foods and crappy foods. But because of my past I’ve been an emotional eater.
THUS, leads me to the V-Diet. Oh happy day!
Finally! There’s hope that I can lose these bad food cravings and lose my “baby fat.”
I can’t wait to feel comfortable for the first time.
Stay tuned for more adventures of a V-Girl!!!
