Laurie Posted March 13, 2015 Share Posted March 13, 2015 Time to take my whole whatever's to the next level with more accountability. I have been mostly whole 30 since June 2014 but did several whole 30's before that time. A little about me - 51 years old, mother to two beautiful feline children, live with boyfriend. Health - IBS, asthma, allergies, depression, anxiety, history of EDNSO (eating disorder nonspecified other), papular prurigo (skin disease). Unfortunately, whole 30 did not cure any of my medical conditions but I am still a big believer in the whole 30 lifestyle. My boyfriend, Steve, is very ill. He had a stem cell transplant in August 2014, experienced severe acute graft vs. host disease and lost 52 pounds (emaciated). Steve now has chronic graft vs. host disease. Life with a ill partner is very difficult and stressful. However, I would not trade this life for anything. I am with the man I love. I started my last whole 30 on January 7, 2015. Made a mistake a few times along the way (don't know the exact days) - ate canned tuna with soy. Just kept on going and decided to call it a "Laurie's whole whatever". On March 4th, I knowingly screwed up. Steve was admitted to the hospital with chest pain and his mom brought me a requested salad with chicken, no dressing. She bought it from subway which has noncompliant chicken. I was very hungry so I decided to eat it - well, just one bite of the chicken; it was too disgusting to eat. Next day back on whole 30. From January 7th to March 7th, I gave up fruit since fruit is a food with no brakes for me. Decided to try fruit again, ate it for 4 days and realized I still have an issue with fruit. I am considering giving it up for another 30 days. I will be posting food and exercise for 30 days and then reevaluate how to proceed from there. I don't need to drop weight. My reason for Whole 30ing has always been to improve my relationship with food. I have had success in that area but I'm always looking for more improvement. I love the whole 30 because it gives me the control/structure that I am missing in my life but that I deeply crave. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
