Bebe Posted July 16, 2012 Share Posted July 16, 2012 So I started my Whole30 today! It's my plan to log my meals and how I'm feeling here. I'm generally healthy but tremendously out of shape - I haven't done an honest to goodness workout in over two years and I weigh way, way too much. A doctor would apply that hideous 'O' label to me. So what results am I hoping to get from the Whole30? I would like to lose the bloat. Every day my feet swell in an embarassing way (I am so glad my pants are long enough to cover them up!) I hope to experience clearer thinking. I'm juggling several projects at work and it is my responsibility to keep track of all the details. There have been a few times when I have completely forgotten something. That stresses me out and, of course, reflects badly on my performance I hope to see some improvement in my skin. My face is clear but the skin on my body seems to have gotten increasingly bumpy and rough. I'm also secretly hoping that the Whole30 clears the half dozen or so tiny flat warts that have appeared on the backs of my hands - that may be asking to much but I can hope, can't I? I really, really hope that the next 30 days will bring some sanity back to the way I am feeding myself. I have battled emotional eating since I was 18. I really want a more rational relationship with food I'm really hoping some of the stiffness I've begun to experience will go away. When I get out of my car at the end of my 45+ minute commute, I have to stand in place for a good 30 seconds so I can walk without hobbling like an old woman! I just want to feel better - physically, emotionally and mentally! And yes, I admit it, I hope I lose some weight or at least my body composition shifts a bit That's quite a list isn't it? Hope my expectations aren't too high! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
