    goingthissolo got a reaction from ultrarunnergirl in Peer pressure almost broke me   
    Another tough weekend started with going to see a friends band play. Too much food and drink and every one saying know will know but me that I cheated. Then my girl friend came over in a mood to drink... and she is use to getting what she wants. And Then the dog has to have his say because he is use to me cooking something delicious and poisonous. So  it turns out I am the "party pooper"  Funny I disappointed every one but myself. Gaining a lot of self control, not that I have a choice if I don't want to have to start this over... DAY 23 and proud of myself.

    I feel great for the first time in over a decade. No other fad diet worked. I've been trying to lose the weight I put on with comfort food after my wife passed away in '04'. So 14 years of a diet roller coaster. Then a new doctor that I decided to try said that my stomach condition sounded like an intolerance to something and she recommended the W30 plan. I went out that day and purchased the Whole30 Book, which I refer to as my "food bible". I'm telling every one about it. Now starts soon, the reintroduction phase. I don't know that I'm even going change that much from the whole30 plan, what I will do though is now take the time to try some of the recipes. It was so hard for me to do this at first that I just stuck to basics but now I feel as if a whole new world of food has opened up for me . 4 more days. I actually feel better for the way my self control was so easy to manage once I realized the benefits of living pain free. Thanks every one for all that you do.

    When my wife passed away, food was the only thing that made me happy. So don't feel bad. I put on 65lbs in four months, that's weigh's as much as a bag of cement. Just keep starting over until you get it right. It's been 14 years since she died and I've probably started over 14 times or more. Then the pain set in and I started the Whole30 at my Dr's. request.. Finally think this time it will work.. Pain is a good motivator. Good Luck to you.

    I think I just really missed my usual week end routine, Pizza ,beer, chips, fast food, store bought desserts and vanilla coke with ice cream. Any thing wrapped in a tortilla. Donuts with the morning coffee and paper. I felt tested all week end and I'm just cranky today. I'll get over it. Here's to next week end.
