Mainegirl34 Posted November 29, 2013 Share Posted November 29, 2013 Hi everyone! I met someone that did the whole 30 this past summer and the idea always stayed with me. I had previously lost weight on Weight Watchers, but I gained all of that back. The food never made me feel very good, and I am sick of being obsessed with counting calories/points, because all that has ever left me is spiraling out of control. I had searched for a way to control my food issues on my own, and then I remembered the lady that I met. She had just finished her whole 30 and had come into my work filled with energy. She was literally glowing. She had an ice cream and she asked if she could put it in the freezer because it was making her sick and she didn't want it. When I asked her why she literally gushed about the program and how amazing it was. Fast forward to the present and it seems like I have been hearing about a Paleo lifestyle everywhere. Even cancer survivors that I have met have embraced the lifestyle and one even has his own chickens! I'm hoping that this "reset" can help me fix the issues with food (and even sometimes alcohol!) that I have. My goal is to stop the voice in my head that always says, "track those calories" and learn to listen to my body. I want to stop the voices that say, "You need whole grains. Whole grains, whole grains, whole grains..." because for me carbs are the beginning and the force behind every time I spiral out of control. I would like to be able to be that person at the party that doesn't need to drink to have a good time. I know it seems like I am setting myself up for failure doing it as Christmas, but I feel it's the opposite. This would be the time of the year that I would give into my excuses and practice no self-control. My gift to myself this year is to learn to have the self-control and control over food that I have desperately searched for my whole life. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
