When I officially started my journey in January I completely stopped eating carbs and sugar. I detoxed from those two practically entirely. It was not very sustainable for me for very long (about 3 weeks) but I added carbs, but not sugar, back into my diet slowly. I still kept it very low carb tho --- around 100-150g a day. I FELT FANTASTIC! I was always a moody person too but after I eliminated those two things my mood improved. I am sure it was a combination of chemical and mental. My body chemistry stabilized and I finally had control over my cravings for the first time in forever.

The detox was awful but I recommend this practice to anyone who asks me how I finally was able to regain control and lose weight.

A few months ago I went off the wagon and ate way too many carbs. I'm finally back to following my advice and this morning I woke up feeling great again!

1/4/15: Restarting my journey exactly 4 years from when I first started in January 2011. Reached my goal weight in 2012 and regained half of it back.

I never should have left 3FC!
