Malgal Posted April 21, 2014 Share Posted April 21, 2014 Hello! I have been reluctant to introduce myself for a couple of reasons. First, I am new to low carb. I am a carb addict so unlike so many of you, I haven't been eating Paleo or anything else prior to embarking on this journey. Second, when I first came on to introduce myself, I discovered that I am the only fool who set her start date to the day before Easter! Third, I have surgery scheduled May 6 and I am not going to fight the hospital staff over my diet. So why now? I didn't want to wait until after my surgery to clean my diet up. I figure that I might as well have two weeks of clean eating and if I don't start over, it was better than having zero weeks of clean eating! Once I make up my mind to do something, I don't like to wait! So here I am, on day three, and saying hello! I suffer from chronic pain and I am hoping that clean eating will help me. I just feel as though I need to detoxify. Afterwards, I hope I can find a happy balance between this type of diet and one that is less strict. I especially enjoying reading everyone's personal success stories. Good luck to all the other newbies who are starting this week. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
