LisaPT Posted June 1, 2015 Share Posted June 1, 2015 I am on day 5. I am pretty happy with myself. This is my first go at Whole 30. I heard briefly about it, went out and bought the book and started the next day. It clicked with me because I had already messed around and seen the results of no gluten and sugar in my body. I also think common sense says to eat what grows and comes naturally as opposed to processed stuff. I definitely have a sugar dragon. I am an emotional eater as well. I am not a good cook and wow does it show when I read about ingredients I have never even heard of! I started the Whole 30 because I am overweight. I am 48 and in good health but I worry about the future-which is tomorrow-ya know?? I have reasons to want to hide in big clothes and a layer of chunk but now when I think about the consequences that could come from not being good to my body I am really concerned. I have 3 great kids. 2 grown and one 12. I have a good man -together 3 years. He is not into this with me. My one daughter is nice enough to be interested . I told her when I have completed my first 30 I should then know how to make a few yummy things and will get her on board. I think losing gluten and sugar will do her a world of good health wise. She makes me laugh all the time with things like this:I was eating something really surprisingly good and she said I said...mmm, eggs, good, mmm, salad good...to which she replied, "mom, you don't have to talk like a caveman, just eat like one." I tend toward bland and simple and as long as it complies I think that is perfect for me right now. There is not much chance of me becoming bored by real food at this point. I had 2 really neat successes in the kitchen when experimenting! i have hated salads BUT...I added warmed in evoo yellow peppers to one and wow what a flavour-that made me just excited to experiment with other vegetables now!!! My success was simply salsa on a salad-I have never eaten a salad so fast in my life!!! LOL Writing is good. I do need a buddy or 2 though.
