Keeping Healthy

By EelKat Wendy C Allen

Important Note: This is page 2 of a really long answer to a really long question. While you can start reading here if you’d like, it’ll probably made a lot more sense to you if you head BACK TO PAGE 1 and read the question I am answering along with the first half of this article. So, go back and read that page first, no hurries, I’ll just slip into this blue box here and marvel at it being bigger on the inside... Let me know when you get back.


So, you back?


Okay, picking up where I left off. So we covered the whole lemon water thing, and for the most part, for most people, yes it’s a good idea, so long as you have no health issues that are made worse by contact with citrus fruit. It’s going to cleanse your colon and kidneys (like a diuretic and a laxative, so watch out the first few weeks you are drinking it, because you are going to be running to the nearest toilet every hour or more! Yeah, lemon water does that to you.) This is going to get a lot of bad bacteria out of your system, and you’ll not be getting colds or flus as often as you used to. On the other hand, it’ll also clear out a lot of the good bacteria so if you are drinking lemon water you want to be eating yogurt as well - 2 servings for every bottle of lemon water. I recommend drinking the lemon water when you first get up in the morning, just before your daily walk. Than eating the yogurt after returning from your walk, then at night just before going to bed, eat another yogurt.

Now the lemon water and yogurt are all well and good, but this is only a very small part of the puzzle. Losing weight, especially a lot of weight, is like a giant jigsaw puzzle. It has lots of little pieces that fit together to make a whole, and until you gather up all those pieces and start connecting them together, nothing is going to work out quite right.

And what you want to know is, how did I connect the pieces to lose 80lbs, because you want to lose 60lbs. Well, now, let's take a look at how exactly it is that I came to lose 80lbs and than you can decide if you want to try to repeat this on not. Okay?

Yes, I did lose 80lbs, but it took me 2 years to do that. It didn’t happen overnight. The event you are referring to, when I lost weight really super fast, I lost 30lbs in 3 weeks and that was not me being on a diet, that was me starving to death while I was homeless in the first few weeks after Hurricane Katrina. Most weeks I was taking one SubWay sandwich and making it last the entire week.

I was eating less food in an entire week, than the average person eats in a single meal. There was no food. Stores were shut down (or simply not there anymore), food that could be found was often soiled, spoiled, and full of maggots. To make things worse there was no water available either. I was not only starving to death, I was suffering from serious dehydration as well.

To make things worse, the hurricane had pushed a heat wave up here to Maine, than pulled the coldest cold front in Maine history up behind in. By October 17th we had had 3 blizzards back to back totally 9 feet of snow, followed by an ice storm that dropped temperatures to a record breaking -48F.

There was one point in that period where I had gone 12 days without a single bit to eat and was shaken so bad from the resulting seizures and tremors that I could barely stay sitting up let alone walk. A side effect of having lost so much weight, so fast, having gone so long without food, while the temperatures were this cold, was I got serious frostbite and  I lost the use of my hands for almost 6 months, I developed arthritis in my hips (a side effect of dehydration), and I developed what doctors called “puffy belly” an alarming side effect of going so long without regular food that your belly becomes distended and extremely painful to the touch.

So yes, I did lose 30lbs in 3 weeks, but no, it was not from dieting, it was from coming very close to starving to death while I was trapped under 9 feet of snow after a blizzard froze over the floods Hurricane Katrina dumped on us.

No, I did not lose weight fast because I was trying to lose weight. I lost weight fast because I was in an extreme survival situation, fighting against nature to stay alive, in a situation that would have killed most people, and did in fact kill several people.

And you want to know something else? My entire life from the time I was 12 till the time I was 31 when Katrina hit, my weight was between 120 to 130lbs. Never more. Never less. Not once in my entire life! Losing those 30lbs you are so fascinated by, left me at a little over 90lbs. I'm 5'6" my body mass index "ideal weight" is 125 to 140lbs. I was bordering on being underweight at the time I lost those 30lbs, and losing those 30lbs put me into a critical danger zone that almost killed me.

Going through that messed up my health big time - my teeth fell out - yeah, I have fake teeth now, I developed cysts in my uterus and ovaries, I went into menopause at 31 years old, I can't have children now, a side effect of having lost 30lbs in a matter of days. There is nothing in this life I wanted more than to be a mother and Hurricane Katrina took that away from me, my family and church refused to help me when Katrina hit, not one single person was there for me - I had no food to eat for weeks on end, living under a 8x6' tarp through 3 blizzards, 2 ice storms, 5 more hurricanes, and the coldest cold front to hit Maine EVER in history! I was alone, abandoned, unloved, and unwanted, and I had no access to food, water, warmth, or shelter, I lost my family, I lost my friends, I lost my church, I lost my ability to have children, I almost died and not one person gave a rat's ass, so don't you dare come in here and glorify wanting to lose weight fast like I did!

Losing weight fast like I did is not a safe way to lose weight, but you are also forgetting that I neither wanted nor needed to lose that weight either. I suppose next you want to know well, than what about the 80lbs I lost? Yeah, a side effect of nearly starving to death was that my body went into panic shock and started storing fat fast as it could, so that the instant I did have access to food again, I ballooned up like an elephant, and in a matter of months I weighed 182lbs. This after losing the 30lbs, meaning I gained almost 90lbs in the same amount of time it took me to lose 30lbs.

The really odd thing here was that my diet was still ranging at 3 meals per week. It would be 5 years before I would gain access to normal amounts of food and daily meals again. Previous to Katrina I had been eating 2,500 to 3,000 calories a day and maintaining my weight at125 to 130lbs.

What changed? The food itself. Previous to Katrina I was growing my own food and cooking everything from scratch (farmer, remember?) after Katrina I was dumpster diving and living off people's left over processed dinners. I started relying on handouts from soup kitchens, which added things to my diet I had never eaten before: soda and pastries.

Soda it turns out was the killer that caused me to gain 90lbs in 3 weeks after losing 30lbs in 3 weeks. Normally you wouldn't gain that much that fast, but remember what I said about the body bring fat back if you lose it too fast? Well that's what happened. I lost 30lbs to fast and my body panicked and kicked my metabolism into overdrive to start turning everything I ate into fat fast as it could, thus in a matter of days I gained the 30lbs back, than gained twice that much on top of it. It was my body's way of "protecting" itself from starvation. And this is what will happen to you if you go ahead with your plan and try to lose those 60lbs in 3 weeks. Those 60lbs will come back, and than to be on the safe side your body is going to slap an extra 120lbs on top of the 60lbs, so that 6 months from now you'll be back where you start plus a 120lbs more.

Yes, I did lose 80lbs, but the way you are asking me about the 80 and 30 you make it sound like I lost 110lbs and that's just not true at all. I lost 30lbs while sick and starving to death, than I gained my healthy weight back, but a side effect of losing weight so fast and unhealthy like, my weight came back x3, totally 182lbs, requiring me to lose 50lbs to get back down to my healthy 130lbs, and 50 + 30 is 80lbs total. How did I lose it? By walking and eating.

This is where I shock people, because before Katrina took my house and decimated my land making it useless for gardening, I used to be on a total raw foods diet, that consisted nearly 100% of vegetables. No place to grow food, no place to cook food = the need to buy already cooked food and I am walking distance from...

...pause for dramatic effect...

...drumroll....

McDonald's

Yep, you read that correctly. I lost 50lbs by eating at McDonald's. Go figure.

And what did I eat? Well, being a vegetarian, they don't have much I can eat. My religion allows me to eat fish if nothing else is available so I eat, every day for 3 months, the exact same meal, once a day, every day:

2 Filet O Fish sandwiches

2 large fries

1 supersize vanilla shake (EggNog in December; Shamrock in March)

2 pumpkin pies

1 fruit salad

My one and only meal every day for 3 months.

Walk to McDonald's eat said meal, walk back home. Every day. And by walking distance I mean it's 2miles one way, so I was walking 4 miles a day in order to eat.

That's how I lost 50lbs while eating the most unhealthy meal to ever grace my diet.

It wasn't what I was eating that was the issue. You can literally eat anything and lose weight. What matters is how much you eat and how much activity you do throughout the day.

At that time (2006) the meal listed above cost $7 and was thus a lot more food for the money, than eating at SubWay. However McDonald stopped selling fish sandwiches at 2 for $3.33, stopped selling fries buy one get one, pies stopped being .50c each, and changed the price of shakes to $4.97 for the supersize. One day I went into McDonald's ordered the same meal I ordered for $7.13 every day, and was told the order came to $23.72! So I went across the street to SubWay and got a $5 footlong instead. Been eating at SubWay every day since.

What was my diet like before Hurricane Katrina, and what is it like once again now that the nightmare of 7 years homeless is over?

I am a Scottish Traveller Gypsy and look "white", but my grandmother was a Kickapoo Native American, and her grandmother was a "black slave" named Tibuta (country of origin unknown, rumored to have come to New England from Haiti), thus I am not "white" but rather "mixed race" consisting of "red", "white" and "black".

Voodoo tradition has been passed down in my family and I am myself both Voodoo and Hoodoo (as well as Christian/Mormon).

I should mention I am a Damballa (Voodoo) Priestess from the House of the Lansquin, my rank is Medsen Fey, I am Marji Lwa (married to/the bride of) Papa Damballa Weddo, god of peace and purity, creator of life, bringer of good health, and which is why his veevee (symbols) are painted on my car. His colors or white, green, and orange. Snakes and eels are his animals. I am also a servant of Erzuli Freda, goddess of love, joy, marriage, sequins, and drag queens, thus why the rhinestones, beads and marbles or glued to my car. Her colors are pink, lilac, and baby blue. Cats are her animals.

It is also why on certain days you will see me wearing white robes, white head wraps, sequined robes, gold embroidered kimono, a 200 year old African Kente cloth-robe passed down to me (see photo at left and below), or a bright orange kimono - depending on what day it is (in respect to the days of the lwa)

Being the bride of Damballah my diet is greatly restricted, for he is the lwa of purity and requires this. Thus I do not eat meat of mammals or birds and only eat fish on rare occasions. My diet consists largely of white foods with lots of milk, eggs, and rice, with cheese, fruit, and vegetables. I only eat spicy food on days of Damballah DuFlame petro when he is in his Petro state, I only eat sweet food on days of Erzuli.

If you are to understand me and my diet and my method of keeping healthy, along with my why of keeping healthy, than you must first try to understand that my devotion to Damballa is beyond what the average non-religious or even your average standard religious person is capable of comprehending.

I am not comparable to your "Sunday Christian", I am not even comparable to your "Saturday Prayer Warrior".

Think of me as you would a Catholic Nun married to Christ, who lives her life forever wearing sacred robes and eating only foods sanctioned as allowable by her convent.

She does this because she is married to the son of God, and has devoted her life to the utmost respect and reverence to him.Like the Nun married to Christ whose life is one of extreme devotion, so is my life one of such extremes.

This is me. This is who I am. This is how I live my life, only I am not Catholic, I am Voodoo. I am not married to the son of God, but rather to God Himself. This is why I own not one stitch of "normal" clothen. This is why I do not drive a "normal" car. This is why my diet is VERY restricted.

This is why I do not drink alcohol. This is why I do not drink coffee. This is why I do not eat meat.This is why I eat mostly raw foods.

This is why I do not I bath in the ocean and wash my hair and skin without soap, using only beach sand. The is why I do not wear makeup. This is why I have no tattoos or piercings.

This is why I wear cloths which most American's call "outlandish".

I live a life that is far removed from the American norm, because I am a religious leader 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I am not a preacher on Sunday who tosses his robes outside of church and 6 days a week looks and acts no different from anyone else. I am like the nun who devotes every fiber, every aspect of her life to her beloved Lord and Savior.

Now do you understand why it is that I have such a healthy diet and lifestyle? I do not do it for myself, I do it to please my Lord, I do it because He asks it of me and I obey.

Hmmm...looks like I'm running out of room again and I'm still not finished answering your question so, time to start a third page...

Throughout 2013 - 2015 a slew of FAKE "EelKat" accounts surfaced, both on social networks and on forums, most were created by a woman calling herself Kendra Silvermander, or her backhoe driving cousin who drove a backhoe over my house, the same woman and her family who cut the heads off my cats, are the same people who hacked my online accounts, created a slew of fake accounts and pretended to be me, after they beat me up on November 14, 2013, leaving me paralyzed for 5 months, relearning to walk for 18 months, and clueless to their impersonation of my online due to my life threatening crippled state that had me offline from November 2013 to March 2016.

Who they are and why they are doing this remains unknown. If you know the identity of these people, please contact the FBI in charge of the investigation into their murder attempts on my life:

Agent Andy Drewer

of the Portland FBI

@ 207-774-9322 

NOTE: I was very active on forums from 1997 to 2007 and have RARELY used a forum since then. Other then the Warriors Forum and Absolute Write I have not posted on ANY forums AT ALL since 2012.

Note: My old inactive forum accounts were hacked and "resurrected" in 2013/2014/2015 by a psychotic NaNoWriMo ML who is upset over my having won a total of 27 writing contests/challenges and published 130+ novels since 2004 and and apparently (according to her emails) she has yet to win or publish anything.

If you see "me" posting on a forum at any point after 2012, know that it is likely this mysterious, and still yet unidentified "Kendra Silvermander".

More information about Kendra Silvermander and what she did can be found here.

Let's think about something here...

I'm just a harmless old lady who likes to dress like and Elf and paint everything pink and write stories about Elves having sex with Unicorns. For THAT, the residents of Old Orchard Beach, call me crazy, build a bomb, blow up my house, stand in my drive way and shoot at me, kidnap my cats, cut my cats' heads off, nail my cats' heads to my door, beat my 28 year old Shetland pony's head in, drive a back hoe over my house 3 times, filled my motorhome with feces 3 feet deep, I was paralyzed for 5 months because they trespassed up in here and beat me up, 3 years later I finally recover and start walking again and they beat me up again this time with a shopping cart rupturing 3 discs in my spine while screaming "kill or be killed remember Saco Shaw's!" and they cut my car in half. I'm sorry, WHO exactly is the crazy person here? 

Yes, I wear pink ball gowns every day.

Yes I wear fake pointy ears and long white Rapunzel wigs.

Yes, I paint my cars, my motorhome, and my mailbox pink.

Yes, I write about Elves having sex with Unicorns.

So the fucking hell what?

I haven't set foot off my land in 40 years. The only time I have contact with people is when THEY trespass on my yard and invade my privacy. And you know what? I've always welcomed them with happy smiles and open arms, made them meals and served them tea, and spent the day happily chatting with any one and every one who wanted to visit me. I love it when you people stop by to visit me as it's the only time I have any one to talk to other then my cats... oh wait... I don't have ANYONE to talk to any more, now that sociopath freaks murdered them and nailed their heads to my door!

You call me crazy because I wear pink dresses, yet THESE THREE PEOPLE are the ones who built a bomb and blew up my house!

You call me crazy because I wear pink dresses, yet THESE THREE PEOPLE are the violent trespassers who stands in my drive way and shoot at me.

You call me crazy because I wear pink dresses, yet THESE THREE PEOPLE are the ones who kidnap my cats, cut my cats' heads off, nail my cats' heads to my door, beat my 28 year old Shetland pony's head in, drive a back hoe over my house 3 times, filled my motorhome with feces 3 feet deep, and cut my car in half.

I mean REALLY stand back and look around.

All I'm doing is wearing strange cloths. I'm not the violent animal abusing, bomb building, psychopath beating up elderly women... THEY are.

There's a hell of a big difference between a half blind elderly woman dressing up as comic book characters and not bothering one damned person, and violent psychopathic criminal creeps beating her up, bombing her house, driving a back hoe over 3 more of her houses, cutting her car in half, filling her motorhome with feces, murdering her horse, and slaughtering her cats!

Old Orchard Beach has a crazy person in it all right, but isn't me... and the residents of this town need to get off their asses and tell the FBI who this white haired man and his blond wife and red haired sister-in-law are BEFORE THEY KILL ME! The red haired woman calls herself Kendra Silvermander.

I don't know who this man and his two women are. They are strangers to me. I don't know their names. And I don't know why they are doing this. Some body in this town must know who these people are ... PLEASE... the FBI is trying to put a stop to these insane hate crimes... PLEASE if you know who these psychopathic monsters are, PLEASE tell Agent Andy Drewer before they kill me. They cut my car in half in 2010. They cut my cats in half in 2015. How long do you think it'll be before they cut ME in half too? PLEASE HELP ME!
