KLO Posted October 13, 2013 Share Posted October 13, 2013 I've attempted this program what seems life a million times. It's not easy. I've been 80% paleo for the past year or so. I like the way it makes me feel. I like the way I look when I'm on point. However, I can't say I haven't struggled. I have a past of disordered eating. Sometimes the "paleo lifestyle" gives me a sense of "safety" and freedom. Other times it's a stressor/ anxiety trigger. My motivation for beginning on this journey is TO FEEL GOOD ALL THE TIME. I'm tired of struggling with a sugar addiction. I hate feeling a part of a restrict/binge cycle. I don't want this to be another cleanse or detox. I want it to be the first 30 days of the rest of a *lifestyle*. Some things I'd like to see change: *Sleep - currently I take melatonin every night. *Cravings - slay the sugar dragon Sugar is a major contributor to anxiety for me. *Hormones - I haven't had my cycle in 2 years. I know this next month may not remedy that situation completely, however, it's a starting point. * Body Fat % - I already know that my body responds really well when I am eating well. I want to be consistent with this and sustain "my best body"/leanest. **Mindset - I know I need to stop having a "dieters" mindset. This IS a lifestyle. And a lifestyle I will gladly continue with. I'm ready to begin this journey and dig in when the going gets tough. I'm excited to give you all a success story next month I'll be logging in occasionally (can't promise daily) for support, but mostly for accountability. All of which is greatly welcome!! ~K.Lo ------------------------------------------------------ I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me!
