Evie B. Posted June 1, 2015 Share Posted June 1, 2015 First of all my name is Eva. I have always had a struggle with weight and an ugly relationship with food. It is not uncommon for me to binge on tons of sugar/candy. For example 4 big bags of cadebury mini eggs, 1 box of little debbie oatmeal coookes and a loaf of french bread. One sitting. I have been trying to eat healthy and exercise over the last 5 years, and did lose about 70 pounds. Funny thing is I did not feel any happier/better. I still looked in the mirror and saw flaws. Tummy jiggle, bulges etc. Then my life fell apart. Lost my house, hubby unemployed, sick kids, and finally divorce. Now I realize that I will always struggle with emotional eating. It does not make me feel anything but sick, depressed and disgusted with myself. I now have the crappy diet to thank for an additional 52 pounds. I feel like I am right back where I started. I have been "planning' to dump the sugar and refined carbs for a while. Then last sunday (may 31st) my neighbor asked me if I wanted to do the whole30 with her beginning June 1. Right then and there I decided. YES, yes I do. Luckily, I had a freezer full of meat and veggies just waiting for me to come back to them. Today is day 4. First 2 days were good. Last night, I was really craving sugar and soda. Thoughs like "who is going to know" cross my mind. I am going to know!!! Went to bed, woke up and am still on plan. Today is day 4. My only complaint is I am sooooooooo tired today. It feels like I am wading through tar today. Not going to go off plan, but I have definitely decided not to add workouts until next week. Hopefully it is ok. So, cheers to everyone where ever in the cycle you are. We got this!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
