I'm finally taking charge of me. I've controlled everything around me (my home, kids, job, etc ) for so long that I'd lost myself. Time to put myself as a higher priority. My best friend introduced me to SP in 2010 and I joined but did nothing with it until January 2011. Had a great first 6 months but then lost interest. I have to regain the interest and motivation. Time to care about ME so that I can care about everyone and everything else. My bestest friend has made amazing and almost unreal changes in her life, losing over half of her body weight and is so close to her goal I can taste it... She is my inspiration.

Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. I was very overwhelmed by the concept of Whole30 when I read the info, until I did a little bit of research and talked to a couple of people who have done the program. I must say that I feel pretty good about it. Even last night I had less thoughts about eating my night snack. I am blogging about my experiences each day! I hope your doing well and have a great day!

Thanks for the comment on my activity feed. It's been a rough winter and the past several weeks have included deaths of friends and acquaintances, parents, children along with an older friend himself. Sad.
