lisanaili Posted October 4, 2012 Share Posted October 4, 2012 Hi! My name is Lisa from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico (http://goo.gl/maps/gXCfE). I've had a really bad relationship with food since my early teens. I did Weight Watchers on my High School Senior year and it worked (lost 27#). However, since this diet did not help me with my emotional eating I gained the pounds again a few years later. Ever since, my weight has gone up and down like a yo-yo. The last few years have been really tough for me personally. I've been batting depression and my emtional eating has gotten even worse. A few months back, I got fed up and decided to get ahold of my life. I have had seen the hype about the paleo diet but it didn't get my interest since I thought it was just A-NO-THER diet...you know. One day, I stumbled upon the Whole30 on Pinterest and out of curiosity checked it out. I started doing my research (reading and watching documentaries) and thought this could be it. I thought this could help me break out of my bad relationship with food once and for all. And to get more energy, have better concentration, better looking skin...would be the tip of the iceberg. It even got more my attention when I read that it could help my mother with her arthitis which she's battling it since she was 29yo. Yesterday (Oct. 3), was my first day. It was kind of tough but I did it. I think the hardest part, for now, is breakfast which now I have to prepare in advance (before I used to grab a sandwich and go). I'm excited to this and I'm confident that I will go through it! PD-Anyone around from PR? Please give me a shout out! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
