I am amazed at how much energy I have since starting the Whole 30 Program. Although it hasn't been as "hard" as I thought it was going to be, it has had its challenges. Prior to starting the whole 30, I ate pretty healthy. My issues were snacking, out of boredom, comfort, punishment. A friend of mine suggested the book and I bought it. Could not be happier that I bought it. Especially learning how to "fix" my relationship with food. Eating when my body is hungry not because I'm bored, sad or happy.
After a week of being on the Whole30, my boyfriend of 3 years broke up with me. I was crushed. The future that I thought was ahead of me, was now over. The old me would have bought a big mac and a bottle of wine and drowned my sorrows. However I fought the urge and just felt my feelings. It wasn't easy but still a non scale victory. Less then a week later, I found out he had cheated on me with his EX. Even more crushed. Still I was able to keep myself from eating my feelings. Athough I am going through a lot, this is something I can control. I can control myself from eating my feelings. Instead of stuffing them down with food.
I truly appreciate what I have learned from the book and what I have learned about myself. That I WAS an emotional eater but I am NOT anymore.
Thanks for listening to my story :)
