Whole30Sue Posted November 21, 2015 Share Posted November 21, 2015 My goodness. I think I am finally on my own bike. I am unsteady as can be, but I am on this sucker. I finished a whole60 in May and have been failing miserably at finding my way ever since. I quit posting all the times I have started over again on my version of paleo. I would start again and then fail within a few days. (And I'm talking eating half a box of donuts kind of stuff.) But now I think it might be going to stick a little longer. I have been at it for two weeks now, and feel good. SOMEHOW I have convinced my entire family to take a paleo adventure with me. I asked for six months, and they have all bought in. Wow. That is helping tremendously. I can throw away anything not compliant and have it out of my sight! Sugar. I have learned since July that I have serious issues with sugar. I am managing fruit okay, but any typical sugary item does a number on me. I find myself no longer able to be in the moment and or able to make deliberate choices. I become re-aware weeks later and wonder what the heck just happened. Weeks of horrible uncontrollable eating just take over. Coffee. I still feel much better caffeine free. At some point I am going to fully accept that my body cannot tolerate it. I am caffeine free again now. Headaches are gone. I am so excited that my family is doing this with me. My husband has type II diabetes. He is very active and I think it is early enough that with him it can be reversed. When we met in college, he only drank Coke. That's it. Later he switched to Diet Dr. Pepper. I buy three 12-packs a week, and that doesn't include what he drinks at the office. WELL, he has switched to unsweetened iced tea. How about that!!! Awesomeness. My oldest daughter has Spina Bifida, she is a paraplegic. She has been putting on weight since puberty. She is adjusting well and already seems to not need any snack between meals. My thirteen year old is an athlete, she is a little slower in accepting. But she isn't complaining. What I have learned so far is that no matter how many times I try and fail, I must keep trying.
