AnneB Posted June 20, 2014 Share Posted June 20, 2014 Starting tomorrow, Saturday, June 21st, I take on my first WHOLE30!! I've done the 21 Day Sugar Detox before (3x) and have been quite successful. But, after reading more about Whole30, I've decided to give this a shot. This is my commitment & pledge to my Whole30 program: 6/21 - 7/31/2014 Why am I doing my Whole30? Two words: Alcohol. Treats. Alcohol...After a significant weight loss in 7 months in 2013 (65lbs), I stopped losing after having bunion surgery in November '13. Holidays coupled with a terribly cold midwest winter, let me get lazy and I began some of my old habits of consuming alcohol on a more regular basis (mainly red wine). I then found gluten free hard cider. No weight gain but no longer any losing. Treats...Spring 2014, I started to transition my kids to a more Paleo diet which meant I began baking more treats for the kids to enjoy & "buy in". Darned grain-free brownies, cookies, and pancakes have been a major downfall for me. My Whole30 Goals Reset ... Getting back to the basics of eating whole food & not using a glass of wine to "unwind" at the end of the day. Lose Weight ... I'll admit it: I want to lose 10 pounds on this journey! Figure out what the trigger really is ... At the end of this journey (Aug 1st), I will gradually re-introduce a few items & see what it is that really set me back. Perhaps it'll be a confirmation of the alcohol & treats but maybe it'll be the occasional dairy or corn that I'll eat. Why I KNOW that I'll be Successful I'm excellent at planning meals & am a skillful cook I'm determined to get back into the groove I will be RELENTLESS I have a great support system - friends who've done this program before & a family willing to eat what I eat during this time.
