Debbie Beck Posted February 27, 2014 Share Posted February 27, 2014 I'm a 51 year old wife and mother of two who has spent her whole life fighting for a healthy (translation: skinny) body to live in. I always blamed genetics (my dad was mostly a round-shaped man) and psychological barriers (my mother reminded me daily...and pretty much still does...that I could stand to lose a pound or two.) When I started my first "diet" at age 10ish, the internet wasn't even invented yet. Well here I am. Blogging on the internet. Whoda thunk it? Actually, my daughter made me do it. Her posts are on this Forum also and I've realized it's a pretty productive way to record my W30 experience for future analization. She texted me one day. My daughter. It was an ominous text that struck fear and trembling in me. Did I want to do something crazy, scary and life changing with her. I spent the next few weeks reading ISWF and getting surprisingly excited about the prospect of living in a way that could accomplish that elusive healthy body I've always wanted. I also got pretty angry about all the lies propagated upon me by the commercial food industry. Milk DOESN'T really do a body good? Well that answers a LOT! We're already over half way through our W30, but I'll start logging my food from yesterday forward. Day 15 M1: 3 eggs w/sauteed onions & mushrooms in Clarified Butter M2: porkchop, spaghetti squash, clarified butter PWO: Handfill of cashews M3: apple dijon hamburger (1/3lb), grilled onions & Mushrooms in clarified butter Okay, I ate the first one and couldn't stop thinking about the second one. So I ate it too. Probably too much for one meal. I really considered whether I wanted more food or if I just craved the yumminess. Not sure what the real answer is, but I caved in anyway. I also decided that nuts may be food without brakes for me. I've always had them on the counter because prior nutrition plans had me eating 6 small meals a day and nuts were my "go to" for a quick snack. When I started the W30 I had a new bag of pistachios (from Costco so it was BIG) and they're gone now. Sure, Hubby and Mother Dearest ate some too, but mostly me. Just can't pass by without grabbing some. I decided the nuts have to live in the pantry from now on. Day 16 M1: Two eggs with 1C of spaghetti Squash and clarified butter M2: W30 Chocolate Chili, half sweet potato with clarified butter M3: Two tilapia filets topped with 1/2 avocado, broccoli, sweet potato Day 17 M1: Three eggs, asparagus, onion, mushrooms cooked in Coconut Oil M2: 1 can Albacore Tuna with W30 mayo and 2 handfuls spring mix/spinach M3: Steak and salad with Balsamic and EVOO Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
