jennor Posted December 25, 2013 Share Posted December 25, 2013 The basics: When: Starting on December 27th How: This time I am pulling out all the stops. i am baring my soul in here in a daily log of food, exercise, thoughts and feelings. I am also joining the "Starting Jan 6th" thread for support. And finally, I am shelling out for the daily emails. Why: I have ulcerative colitis. I was diagnosed in 2007 and have been on immunosuppressant therapy ever since. I was flaring badly last spring and my gastro-entherologist suggested surgery to remove my entire colon. After researching my options I decided I needed to try to heal myself, and really give it 100% effort. At the time I was eating a SED (standard european diet) and a ton of sugar. On July 1st I embarked on a Whole14 and I have been strict paleo ever since. I did another Whole14 in Nov-Dec. In between I have been pretty strict, but with some SWYPO. My offroading is chocolate. Usually the really dark stuff, but I have eaten the occasional milk chocolate too. I feel like I turn to chocolate a bit too often after a stressful day. Once the kids are in bed I feel like I need a little chocolate and a de-caf to process my day. I want to make this less of a habit and more of a choice, if you know what I mean? I live in Sweden, married, two kids. More later, kiddos are screaming! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
