hojo Posted September 25, 2012 Share Posted September 25, 2012 Here comes a vulnerable post.......frustrated, sick of it....but unwilling to give up the 'feel good' feeling of sugar. It is so true when they say it activates Dopamine, etc in your brain so you want more. I've tried Whole 30 three times. The first time I made it 14 days, the second 13 days and now I just can't get started. I 'know' in my heart that this could potentially change my relationship with sugar but every time I get a few weeks in I quit. I get 'sick' of trying, or bored with food, or any reason to just eat that cookie/banana chips/etc....and once I have a bite its all over! I know that nothing any of you can say can 'make' me do this. It is up to me. BUT wondering if anyone has any motivational tips for me? I really want to do 30 days and I feel like I'm just prolonging my 'enjoyment' so that I don't have to 'start'.....when really I am not enjoying myself....just feeling bloated, sick of it, and down on myself. I'm also nervous of like some other posters have posted that once you do this you can never have anything 'off plan' because your gut is so healed that it just can't handle it. And maybe that's the point....that you feel so well you won't want too.....but this way of eating is difficult in social situations too. or is this an excuse I give to myself to just stay where I'm at! Just some history....my husband and I have been eating Paleo for probably a year. So all my meals are very well balanced with protein and veggies....BUT I eat desserts, etc in addition to this.....so its probably not 'really' Paleo when I add that other yucky stuff in.
