I am really going to attempt W30 starting today. I will have to avoid alcohol and cake, but I really feel the need to get started. I am making NO exceptions this time. I already weighed and measured yesterday morning. For breakfast I am having coffee with CM and eggs.
When I measured yesterday, the gravity of my situation really came home to me. Since my mother passed away in October, I have gained 30 lbs and 5 inches on my waist and hips. Scary and sad, but not impossible to turn around. I am going to make sure to eat ample fat and keep my carbs at 50 or below on top of the W30 strictures.
Sometimes being scared is what it takes to get you going.
Good luck, Pebbles. You know we're all here with you.
Thanks Karin that is some awesome encouragement. Oh. you'll appreciate this. I received an email at 4 pm yesterday from the VP in charge of scheduling. When I saw the subject line "last minute schedule change", nearly had a heart attack. Apparently, there was a major snafu and they had to make a last minute change to my teaching schedule. The kids arrive on Tuesday, EEEK. Thank goodness it is only a period change, but the class is the same level that I was already teaching.
I can appreciate the sentiment that comes with needing to do something right now. I know you can do this.

My "Program": doing my version of a 4:3 - 3 day fast diet with real food every day, with a little twist of anti-inflammatory mixed in.
Have had a pure W30 day so far which is not easy because am a guest in someone else's home. Dinner tonight is pizza, but i will be having a salad and maybe some meat that I scrounge up. Oh yeah, I put emergency cans of tuna in my suitcase.
Today 12 members of the three families hiked 1.5 miles on a steep rocky trail in the Great Blue Hills outside of Boston. I definitely got my exercise today. My 8 year old son was a trooper.
I also started my Binge Group Journal, so we will see how that goes.
Is it on MDA?? Whats it called?
