springbound Posted February 3, 2014 Share Posted February 3, 2014 Hello everyone! Day 1! I'm excited to start this journey. I lost about 140 pounds after having weight loss surgery almost 2 years ago and have let the bad habits start to creep in again. My addiction to crunchy carbs has been ridiculous, the diet soda has to stop and I need to stop making cheese one of my primary food groups. And the eating out. Oy. I don't eat a lot anymore, but I am not eating food that's good for me. I thought this might help me get back on a track to eating healthier and being good to my body after all I have put it through. My wife is doing this with me. She's type 2 diabetic. Her blood sugar is regulated well with her meds but she's been making noises about eating better for a while, so we're starting this together. I did some prep work yesterday to get ready. I cooked some sweet potatoes and spaghetti squash plus a vat of taco meat to eat over both of those for lunches. I also made my breakfast for the next couple of mornings. I'm not an egg eater, so I made some compliant chicken sausages with a kind of veggie hash with sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, garlic, pepper and onion. I bring breakfast to work and I am now responsible for stinking up the office early in the morning. oops. I'm already worrying about a challenge we have coming up. There's a chili fest that we'll be attending with some friends in a couple of weeks. I have a feeling I'm going to just extend my whole 30 to make it a whole 44 to accomodate a restart so I can go and eat and have a good time and not worry if I try something that's not compliant. I'm a bit of a foodie and I don't want to miss out on the opportunity to try amazing food from amazing restaurants because of beans or a white potato. I want to start now because I keep putting my start date off because of various reasons. (holidays, birthdays, etc.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
