zenzebra321 Posted November 30, 2014 Share Posted November 30, 2014 I first started my whole 30 in the beginning of November. The first two weeks were absolutely fantastic. I was on a roll and it seemed like nothing could stop me. I didn't see any physical changes just yet but I noticed I wasn't taking afternoon naps anymore and I just felt so much more happier knowing that my eating was under control. However, on day 21, something just set me off and I went crazy on sweets. I tried my best not to feel so disappointed or guilty but I was doing so well! And since then, I've been trying to restart every day since, but with thanksgiving and other bad excuses, I've always given into my old ways. I'm 20 years old, and I'm tired of feeling this way about myself, about food, about everything. I hope that with every day in my whole30 that I complete, I leave behind the unhealthy teenager I once was--where my mind indulged in endless hate, criticism, and negativity towards myself. I realize that I have a long way to go until I develop a healthy relationship with food and I am determined to keep trying because I believe in the whole30 and I believe it can heal my mind and body. It just at certain times, like when I get home from work especially, my years of using food to relieve stress catches up to me and everything goes down hill from there. But I believe with constant effort in the right direction, I will get to where I need to be. No excuses, no exceptions, no negotiations. I start tomorrow and I am absolutely determined to make it to day 30 this time. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
