Jessica M. Posted January 23, 2013 Share Posted January 23, 2013 In my annual Christmas Time search for the new year's solution to my bad habits and ideas of how to improve the lives of my family and be a good example to my kids, I found 100DaysOfRealFood.com and through that blog, "It Starts With Food," and so, my 1/2/13 Whole30 start. Day 21 for me today. It's been ok. I think I need to commit myself to way more than 30 days to see the changes I want to see. I am just 5'1" and was 209 starting the Whole30. So, obviously, a major goal for me is weight loss. Even in High School I was chubby, 135-ish. It's been up, up, up from there. Down ten, up twelve. The usual yo-yo stuff. Thankfully I have avoided MAJOR health issues thus far. I turn 40 this year though, and since I haven't gotten control of my body and my health yet, I definitely see this as the year I MUST do that. I have a 10 year old son and an 8 year old daughter, and am married to my HS Sweetheart for 16 years now. We live near Tampa, FL, but are from Queens, NY, so I am a city girl at heart. The boards are very welcoming in general, and I am loving the sense of community here, but I am looking for a few kindred spirits who have not eaten Paleo already, have never been in a CrossFit gym, are looking to BEGIN the journey here. I'm sure many have been there, so I welcome their wise words as well. I love me some inspirational stories. :-) Thanks, Jessica Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
