Whole30Merly Posted January 6, 2016 Share Posted January 6, 2016 I've done Paleo before. It was hard, but honestly, it was easier to just not eat the foods that I was addicted to instead of having to deal with moderation (A pinch of cheese? I'm sure you meant a cup). It was during my Primal period that I lost the most and was at my lowest weight since high school, which, ironically enough, was still not my goal weight. But then it got hard and I quit. Gained back two times my previously dropped pounds and even invited an autoimmune disorder along for the party (ITP). This time around, things have got to change. I need to drop about 60 pounds. I need to get out of my comfort zone. I need to stop going to the doctor every week. I need my platelets to stay up. I need to stop paying $40 a week in copays. I need to run a 5k like I've been saying I want to for years. I need to go to Bonnaroo this year and not worry about taking medications. I need to be able to be comfortable in my own skin. There's a lot of things that need to happen with me. Instead of this being a phase with me, like all the other times, this time, I need it to last.
