snailytrail Posted October 29, 2015 Share Posted October 29, 2015 Hello everyone. It's been a while since I've been here, but I'm SO glad to be back. I'm on Day 5 of my second round of Whole 30. In fact, I think this is going to be a Whole60. I haven't decided yet and I haven't committed either because my first round (2 whole years ago) was really really tough going with my sugar dragon but it seems to me this time that that's actually a good reason to do a Whole 60. I really need to grips with the things and slay it as much as I can. A Whole 60 takes me up to two days before Christmas. I can DO this! Prior to starting I was making some really poor food choices and felt dreadful so in some ways right now I'm the most motivated I've ever been. And I might as well be honest here and say that having done two years of Paleo eating (following my Whole 30) I've knocked all sorts of things on the head with regards my health but my weight has been up and down and all over the place. This is because of my sugar dragon and it's not ok. I'm now back to being the exact weight I was before I started my first Whole 30 and that feels absolutely dreadful. I need to get it off for my health and my emotional well being. It is secondary to everything else but it still matters. So far my first 5 days have been easy. I've just broken up with someone so I'm really going through the wringer and I really expected this to be tougher, but I did a lot of prep before I started and am making sure to eat the nicest food I possibly can. It helps so much, even if it's expensive. I just wish the days were rolling around a little quicker!! I keep thinking about how it will feel when I get to Christmas and I feel healthier and strong and powerful and slimmer and I can go into the new year with a head start by maybe doing another Whole 30 then. So bring it on, I'll look forward to popping into other peoples' logs and seeing how you're all doing. We can do this! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
