5 til 40 Posted October 1, 2012 Share Posted October 1, 2012 Hello. I have been that "healthy" girl on the outside. Always ordering a salad with grilled chicken and the dressing on the side. Would never even think to touch a bagel and I exercise almost everyday. I cook healthy/real foods. I appear healthy and i think I have been able to convince myself that since I make healthy meal choices and exercise that all is well. Well, here's the thing. It is not. I am skinny fat, sluggish, irritable, and can barely run half as long as I used to and my clothes don't fit. It is no surprise why. I am a closet eater and a food addict. When no one is looking, I eat the kids mac-n-cheese, drive to the frozen yogurt store and eat way more than a serving, I take my kids chocolate from their "stash", eat it then quickly replace it like it was never gone. I bake constantly and eat the dough (and the final product) when no one is looking. But of course I tell them it is unhealthy and I don't want any!! Talk about a hypocrite! Well, that was me yesterday and for a good 30 years. Today I start my journey on the Whole 30. i have tried before and failed, but this time I am determined to see what it feels like to actually accomplish this! My stomach is a mess (I made cookies last night at 9:00 pm for scouts just because (aka an excuse to bake and eat junk when everyone was asleep!). NO MORE!!! I am actually looking forward to the detox! Sorry this was so long. I appreciate anyone who took the time to read it :-) I can't wait to post my success story and how I finally beat this!! So...here goes! Bring it on! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
