Wynne Jones Posted August 17, 2014 Share Posted August 17, 2014 I surrender. I am bloated, my GERD has come back as well as my achilles tendonitis/plantar fasciitis, I'm low energy and anemic, and I've lost the ability to control my eating. I need to turn my will and my life over to God as I understand God. The best way I've discovered to do that is through the Whole 30. Going back through my old log it amazes me how little anything has changed. For that matter, going back through 20-year-old journals show me how little has changed. I have been at war with myself over food for far too long. I know the solution - eating a whole foods diet based on vegetables, high quality meats, a bit of fruit, and healthy fats, hold the junk. But I feel like my sugar dragon is a parasite - it resides within me and whispers all day about cookies and cakes and sandwiches. My 5 year sober anniversary is on Oct. 19, and my plan is to keep Whole 30 until then. I signed up for the daily emails, something I haven't done since my first W30 a couple of years ago. I officially start tomorrow, 8/18. For the sake of comparison when I'm done, here are some stats as I begin: weight - 167 waist measurement - 36 hips - 42.5 Today I must clean my kitchen, which is a mess, and do a shopping. I'm also going to talk this over with my family so they understand what's at stake for me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
