FloatyHacklin Posted March 14, 2016 Share Posted March 14, 2016 Here we go, Day 1!! My biggest concerns: Goodbye cigarettes, wine, and indulgence (some of my favorite things). Why I'm doing this: joint pain reduction, mood enhancement/stabilization, skin improvement, weight loss/confidence, cancer-risk reduction, examination of negative relationship with food, healthy modeling for my kids, healing immune and digestive systems, reduce dependence on pharmaceuticals, reduce headaches, reduce rate of illnesses/ absenteeism from work/ doctor's visits, increase productivity, gain (at least a bit of) control of my future, AND a bunch of other stuff that I can't foresee. My biggest strengths: 1) I LOVE TO COOK. Love it. Absolutely love all things about food, cooking, eating, feeding others. 2) cutting/chopping/mincing = mindfulness practice 3) My will is strong. I enjoy the challenge. 4) I NEED this. My biggest weaknesses: 1) I've been smoking over half of my life, and have a nasty oral fixation. 2) Limited budget 3) Sugar addiction 4) Food = Security blanket I'm so fortunate to have the time, motivation, and support to do this. My FANTASTIC partner is doing this with me; even my kids are excited (for now)!! So, it begins. I look forward to whining, celebrating, and learning with y'all!!!
