Hello My name is Layla =) This is my very first time doing the whole30!!! I am super excited about the process. I know this is the stepping stone to get the health and confidence I want. On this wonderful day 6 I have to say the sugar cravings are consuming my mind!!! I know were not supposed to substitute foods but fruit hasn't been lasting long around me. I know how bad my sweet tooth is and I refuse to fail at this. I understand the science behind why this is so hard. I just need reassurance this craving will pass. I cant believe I cant chew gum this isn't horribly hard to resist compared to other things. I am anxiously waiting for the acne I do have to go away. I don't know if mother nature being present is part of the reason it isn't gone. If anyone could help me put these things into a better perspective and reassure me that these are normal things I as well as my sanity would greatly appreciate it.
Hello All! My name is Brice and I am a thirty-two year old single mother of two. This is the second time I am attempting the whole 30. The first time I made it 2 weeks before the lure of happy hour sabotaged my progress. I was so disappointed in mysself that I just gave up completely. I am a relatively healthy eater and try to stay mostly paleo, but as of late I had been having dairy, and my vacation found me completely run amuck with glutenous goodies- which in my case is even more detrimental due to my diagnosis of celiac. Now, I am sick and tired of being sick and tired! I have beat so many addictions- from nicotine to hard drugs, but food proves to be the most challenging. It's the one vice that doesn't seem to rate nearly any judgement if you aren't really overweight (I have about fifteen pounds to lose to be happy), but the addiction is the same for me. The feelings of guilt, the obsessive thoughts, the control it seems to have over my life! I want to commit wholeheartedly so that I can reap the benefits of feeling freed from yet another addiction. I want to see who I can really be, what I can really accomplish, and set the stage for a lifetime of heatlh that I can pass on to my chidren. I am scared...I tell myself I can do this, but I've seen myself fail so many times that the addict part of my brain tells me I can't do it just so it can get what it wants- in this case, pizza, ice cream, chocolate!! But I digress. I will do this and I think joining the forum will prove to be an integral part of my success:) I look forward to keeping up with others that are starting around the same time(this is day two for me), as well as those who have conquered this and can offer advice and support! Good Luck to all of you (and me), we CAN and WILL get thorugh it! Brice
