AndJP Posted August 2, 2014 Share Posted August 2, 2014 Hello! Thank you for reading my Whole30+ log. Hello!My name is Andrea. I am 31 years old. I have been chubby my entire life. Never too fat and NEVER thin. Well, that's not true, once in grade 12 I made it to an all time weight max of 172 and then the following year I made it to an all time weight low, 127. Both were short lived, otherwise i have been somewhere in between. Always hovering around the same weight, never happy with myself. As a kid I was pot bellied and still my abdomen is my trouble zone.I am 5'4" tall and hover around 155lbs with little effort.In March I was introduced to the Whole30 and I made it 23 days. Since then I've stuck with a paleo-esque diet, with the odd slip here and there and one all out rebellion for about a week. I then stumbled across the Primal Blueprint book and read it within days. It makes SO MUCH sense.I still struggle, sugar is my major trouble area.I bounce back and forth between "I DO NOT need to eat sugar" and "A little sugar isn't that bad, I can't go forever without sugar." Easier said than done! As soon as I give in to a little something one time I have trouble stopping. I am also going on almost a year sober, I quit drinking August 12, 2013. I find it very mind boggling that I can quit an addiction like alcohol but I can't quit sugar. But I guess sugar has been a LIFELONG addicition. The diet changes I have made since March have not gone unnoticed.My IBS is almost nonexistent (except for days when I go off track a bit)My skin is clearMy body has changed in so many waysI look better than I have in about 12 yearsThere are still changes I would like to see and I know they are coming.I don't necessarily have a weight goal in mind. I have focused on weight my entire adult life and it has done me no good. My goal is to feel good, and to play on a beach in a bikini with my kids without feeling self conscious!My Whole30+ (I think it will take much longer to kick my sugar addiction) starts today!
