Whole 30: My why
I wanted to dive a little deeper into my why. Why do I want to do Whole 30 again when it is so stinking hard!?? You know the old saying, “if it was easy, everyone would do it!”? Or, “anything worth having is hard work” (is that a saying? or did I just make that up?) But you get the idea….
I have been on a downward spiral for quite some time and I just feel like I need a reset. I need to be aware of what I am putting into my body and how it makes me feel. After completing my previous Whole 30’s I have felt more in control, confident, self-aware, and excited about life.
I want to give you a little background on my story and make myself a little vulnerable here. I have always been overweight. Always the fat friend, the one who will eat her emotions, or anyone else’s. In 2009 something clicked, I found weight watchers and lost 100 pounds. I gained confidence, a newfound love for life. And then that life threw a curve ball, I went back to work full time, moved, and suddenly didn’t have as much time to focus on myself. And now I’m back to where I started. I have felt every emotion you can imagine. Anger, depression, self-loathing, and have eaten all of those emotions. I feel like I’m finally in a place where I am ready to forgive myself and move on. And that, my friends, is my why. I really really miss that girl in the picture!
