Tamra Wysocki-Niimi Posted June 16, 2012 Share Posted June 16, 2012 Hi all! I did my first Whole30 almost one year ago. It really did change my life. During the course of my first Whole30 and then eating mostly Whole30 for many months after, I got rid of my daily migraines and lost 40 pounds. There were other changes too -- like sleep! ah sleep! and energy! whoop whoop! Since then I've done some almost and partial Whole30s. BUT OOF! have I made some unfortunate choices over the past several very stressful months. I've been mindfully watching these choices to figure out what triggers them, what was I thinking/feeling before I got the urge for crap, how do I feel when I'm 2 inches down into my husband's container of crappy ice cream, and how do I feel after I've set the carton down and tottered away. I generally keep coming back to Whole30 eating, even if it's just for a meal or for a day. I always feel better after that. I don't like where I've strayed to these days. I don't feel good. I get headaches (not migraines, unless I really go overboard with high fructose corn syrup), my energy is low, and I feel sloggy, gross, and negative. I've played around with thoughts of a "relaxed" Whole30 (that did not work) and I've demanded that I get on a Whole30 right now, young lady! That also did not work. Last night after a large burger with pretzel bun and a huge bowl of ice cream I said, Okay, tomorrow I'm going on a Whole30. This morning I took some swipes at my husbands ice cream. Before I even had my coffee and thought, "Well, MONDAY is a good day for starting things." Then I heard myself and saw the pattern. So, no. not Monday. Now. I am imagining that I am telling myself kindly, in a BFF way, Hey, let's do a Whole30 starting now. Like Melissa and Dallas said: Start now. I am announcing it here and I am starting now. With ice cream clanking around in mah belly. I call a Whole30. Thanks so much for your support! Tami Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
