myturn Posted August 9, 2014 Share Posted August 9, 2014 I've been married for 18 years and have 5 kids. I do all I can to support my hubbie and kids, now it's my turn to support myself and my health. I'm suffering from PCOS, Type 2 Diabetes, severe IBS etc. etc. I know diet is everything and it's time to make myself a priority and feel good. I am 40 pounds heavier than I want to be and I get winded just climbing one flight of stairs. Enough! I can do this, I will do this! In 2011 I followed the SCD Diet for 6 months (no sugar, grains, starches, and no dairy for me) under doctors orders. I was able to follow it 100% for more than 180 days! I have never felt better and I can't wait to get back to that! I learned a few things following SCD: 1. Take it one day at a time 2. Plan and prepare-always have legal food ready that you can grab on the go or when the cravings hit 3. Become accountable to someone that you want to impress 4. When you travel or plan to be away from home for several hours, pack your own food 5. Find a "legal" food that feels like a treat-keep it on hand! I post those tips to remind myself that this is possible and I have it in me to be successful. Whole30 will be worth it! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
