emmieloo Posted December 27, 2014 Share Posted December 27, 2014 Hi! My name is Emmie, and this is my second stab at a Whole30! So my first Whole30 journey began in the early spring of 2013 whilst a college student. My starting point: Pretty pathetic, right? That girl weighs around 222-224 on a good day. She hates herself. After 30 days of whole eating, she ended up looking fierce as hell: Yep. That's her 20 lbs lighter at the end of a Whole 30, rocking a sexy 200 lb body. Whole30 way of living just fit with me... It gave me confidence over my health, my food choices, my sleeping habits, and my emotional stability. And it made me feel like I could love this body I was given, rather than despise it. So fast forward two years - it is now going into 2015, and I have made a lot of positive health choices. This is me now, at around 180-182lbs! (I am the shorty second from left) I feel great and look great and have been sporting this 40 lb weight loss in the best way - enjoying new clothes and a body that can do far more than the one I had two years ago. My hair is healthier and my skin is shinier and my temperament is positive. I have been able to maintain this weight for a year by not eating gluten (except on rare occasions) and by eating less than I usually do. I simply am not as hungry as I used to be. However, with a new year cresting... I think it is time to give it another go and take steps closer to my goal weight of a healthy 140lbs (or less, who knows!) by the end of the year. I don't know how difficult it will be to lose the last 40lbs, but I know a great jumpstart is a Whole30! I enjoy the structure and the strict guidelines and the community. And I really like the idea of tucking that scale away for 30 days and really listening to how my body feels. (Wow that doesn't make sense haha) Anyway, so today is day one! I am off to the farmer's market! I look forward to sharing this with you guys and wish you the best of luck on your own health journeys! :-) -Emmie Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
