I’ve put off writing this post because I did not want to acknowledge a gnawing fear that followed me all the way through my Whole30, and remains with me even now; that is, what if all of this amounts to nothing?
As in, what if I make all these changes and I stay fat?
What if cleaning out my refrigerator and pantry leads to just a few pounds lost, but eventually more gained, as has happened EVERY SINGLE TIME I’ve changed my eating in the past?
Would it be okay if I felt mentally and emotionally stable, but my physical body still totes around an extra 30, 50, 70 pounds?
No; the answer is absolute.
It would not be okay.
