Mrsfrosty Posted May 22, 2013 Share Posted May 22, 2013 Hi everyone. My name is Kelly. I'm 52 years old and live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I've been battling with 40 excess lbs. for over 10 years and am so tired of the battle - both physically and emotionally. I found It Starts With Food by accident when looking through iBooks on my iPad mini. What a blessing! I loved the book and am ready to start my Whole30...for the right reasons...to heal my body from years of diets, junk food and sugar. The book helped me stand back and look at the big picture. I am so OUT of touch with my body that I need to relearn how to tune into my body's signals...hunger, bloating, etc. I also have been told by my doctor that I really should lose 20 lbs. and get healthier before I hit menopause. I'm also currently on blood pressure and cholesterol meds. Finally, I have been on every diet, am a member of Overeaters Anonymous (a 12 step program) and have weighed myself daily...weigh and measure my food, log my food and count calories, don't cook.....for so many years that diets, food, weight and the scale have become the focus of my life. So, the Whole30 will be a HUGE change for me...not weighing myself...not counting calories...learning to choose AND appreciate good, nourishing food (vs eating out or having processed foods and ready-made salads and dinners), not logging food (though I may use the Whole30 log to be accountable), learning to cook (will keep things simple)...LOTS OF CHANGES AHEAD....ALL GOOD. Thanks for letting me introduce myself and share... Kelly Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
