Hi everyone! I've been lurking for about a year now and decided to try and get support.
I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. There is about 2 feet of snow on the ground 6 months out of the year so nothing much grows here. I started CrossFit (my mate's cousin just opened her own gym - CrossFit Winnipeg!) and loved it but due to my horrible eating habits I had to take a break and regroup (try doing CrossFit after eating nothing but grains and refined sugar all day. Barf, much?)
I need help, people. I've read the books, read the blogs, listened to the presentations. I'm overweight (5'5" and 170 pounds) and depressed. I quit drugs, quit smoking, hell I even quit birth control because it was messing with my hormones. I can't seem to quit sugar with the same "never-look-back" attitude. I need to hear from someone who was been in the same place I am right now. Anyone from a place where it's hard to find local fruits and veggies? I've sucked back gallons of high-end fish oil and tried supplements to level out my blood sugar and alleviate depression.
I am happy to state that we have plenty of farms where I can find grass-fed animals and naturally raised chickens. My case is not a hopeless one, I just need help.
My family does not support me although recently I kind of convinced my sister that grains suck the big one.
What motivates you when there's nothing immediately bad happening? I'm trying to do this to be healthy, not because I'm going to die tomorrow if I don't change my eating habits so there is definitely a lack of emergency. Thanks in advance!
