Need Paleo Support Friends!
Hi! My name is Gabbie and I'm 30 years old. I have finally found how I can truly feel amazing. I did a Whole 30 in April and felt incredible, after the first week or so ofcourse! I was drinking around 6 cups of coffee a day, diet coke, adding Splenda and Truvia to ice tea, the list of crap goes on and on. I finally broke through the caffeine and artificial sweetener addiction! From May til now I have been following the Paleo diet really well during the week... then Friday afternoon comes around and something hits me. Its like a flip is switched. All of a sudden I want chocolate, ice cream, anything loaded with sugar. I have a hard time saying no to myself, so I think well I will just a have a little bit- this is a lifestyle afterall. Then a little turns into a lot, and before I know it I am on a sugar and completely NON PALEO BINGE. It really is ugly. I was off MFP for a while because I felt like I was missing the point of listening to my body about how much to eat and when to eat, I feel like I have a better grasp of that now but what the hell is going on with these binges?????? It always ends on Sunday, because I wake up feeling like complete ****, for lack of a better word. I am angry with myself, and my family takes the worst of it. My head is pounding and my depression is back full blown. I think it would help if I had some Paleo Friends to help me stay motivated. My husband is so not paleo, he eats a paleo dinner but that's about it. I have two children 5 and 4 and really will eat whatever I give them. But they aren't people I should be getting support from. So I really don't have anyone to go to when I feel myself slipping.... Please add me if you can help me! I will return the favor I promise. Helping others stay motivated keeps me motivated! Thanks for reading my rambling!
