I have not been on this site in about 6 to 7 months. But I wanted to give everyone a update on how I am doing. So, I have been off of my diet for well over 20+ years and just in the past month to month and a half I have started drinking my formula. Still not the whole 5 pack a day but I am getting 3 packs a day down. In June 2011 I did a blood test and my level came back as 11.7 with out drinking my formula. I was so shocked I asked the doctor if she was sure that it was right. She said that it was. Then, July 13, 2011 I took my blood test again and it came back to me on July 20, 2011 and it was 7.7, again I was shocked. This might not sound like a big deal to some people but for me it was... And the reason why is because I am still not totally on my diet and eating the things that I should. I still eat cheese, chicken, and maybe a few pieces of steak now and then. But I don't buy anything other than my formula. So, I refuse to say I am on the diet, to me that just sounds wrong. But I do write everything down that I eat no matter what it is and drink and I do try to measure the food out. It is not easy at all to say the least. But the one thing I can tell say is that if I can do it and get my levels down anyone can. I am 36 I went off my diet at the age of 12, and since I have been drinking my formula I have more energy. Before anyone ask no I am not pregnant. But maybe one day I would like to start a family (porbably not until next year or later). I want to be sure that I am in control of my diet first and we will work on the rest. I will try to keep everyone updated.
