Aleai811 Posted June 8, 2013 Share Posted June 8, 2013 Good morning everyone, I first attempted by first Whole30 14 days ago. I made it a week before caving to a few glasses of wine. I started again last Sunday and made it 5 more days before caving to more than a few glasses of wine. This led to a day of very off-plan eating. Here's my question. I'm 27, single and dating. I recently moved across the country for a new job and have spent the past 5 months trying to make new friends and settle in. For my demographic (especially in San Francisco), wine, drinking and going out are a huge part of the social culture. I'm certainly not immune to emotional eating issues and they've become much more prevalent since I moved out here (largely triggered by nights filled with new friends...and many drinks). This is my main reason for attempting a Whole30 and it is so fundamentally important to me to prove that I can do this. I feel incredibly committed to this lifestyle and I believe in it...but then when I'm on a date, or in social situations where everyone is drinking (and not wanting to avoid this situations because I'm still trying to make new friends), the craving become so strong and I act impulsively. Is anyone else in a similar situation? How do you handle? Is there anyone out there who would be willing to mentor me through this or be a 'buddy?' I don't know what to do...
