New here...I will start on December 1st. I will start no sugar today because mentally, I am just ready. I have been a sugar addict for years and I have recently discovered that I am definitely sensitive to milk products. I tried Paleo a few years ago, as prescribed by my doctor, but I just didn't keep up on it, especially after I had met my soon to be ex-husband. He never wanted me to be healthy (he definitely wasn't) and It was so hard to fight for that. I have decided that now being in a safe place, I am going to break free from not just the bondage he and sugar had me under, but to finally take control and stop making excuses. I am ready to slay the sugar dragon and move forward. A friend of mine did the Whole30 for 100 days and has made it a lifestyle to help her kiddos and they did it as a family and saw drastic changes. I'm ready to make the drastic change for my body. I'm nearly 300 pounds, biggest I've ever been and I use to be healthy and an athlete, till college and a back injury. Just sick and tired of being sick and tired. I have goals and dreams and my body isn't going to be the result of those things unanswered. I'm ready to do this!
Hi! I'm planning to post every day in an effort to build greater accountability to myself. I've been struggling to commit and really start for over a month. Several months ago I was last committed to an anti-candida diet and I have been facing a lot of emotional resistance since then. I felt better, but didn't see other expected impact as far as any weight loss even thought I was on the diet for several months. Some inflammation went down, but that was it. I am aware now that I'm struggeling emotionally with my belief system, of which I haven't often been aware, that I don't in fact believe I have control over my physical well being on the level that I wish to, and therefore, it's easy to abandon goals and let all decisions go to the wind. It's hard to commit when you've already learned that you aren't likely to see the same number and magnitude of benefits as many others for as little as 30 days. I wish to approach this as a long term decision as the yo yo of opinions from doctors is only moving in circles and not leading to lasting solutions. At least I know I feel better on the whole 30 and understand that an anti-inflammatory diet is likely what I need long term.... that being said, I want to make the whole 30 my baseline although it's not entirely anti-inflammatory as I've learned. Today I've already errored once in having an item with cane sugar in it. Tomorrow I will change up my caffeine routine in the morning from canned yerba with added sugar to my own. I took some photos of myself yesterday to serve as an additional wake up call/ motivator in the moment. After eating anything that I don't get along with; I get so bloated I absolutely look pregnant. Anyone else out there doing whole 30 long term?
