"Here's my truth," she wrote next to a mirror selfie on Instagram. "I did not decide to do a whole 30 to lose weight, I did it because I felt I'm sliding into a dark place."
Here's my truth: I did not decide to do a whole 30 to lose weight, I did it because I f I felt in a dark place. I did it when I wanted to curb the uncontrollable craving for sugar. I did it because I wanted to prove that sugar does not let my life go. I'm on Day 30 and I'm so proud of myself that I made it, but when I say I'll do something, I'll do it. I'm less bloated and generally feel better emotionally. But the truth is, my desire has not disappeared. Not everything is a problem, and that's fine, I'll thank you for enjoying my family's food, and then I'm going back with the whole train on Monday morning. Because building habits takes time, because although I definitely still want chocolate, I do not have to eat it every day and let the sugar control my emotions. I want to feel good and work hard, and I want to be my best self. – – – #strongwomen #personaltrainer # whole30 #curvyfit #bodypositive #selflove #bestself #healthylifestyle

She realized that 30 days are simply not enough time to overcome something she had to do with her whole life. "Not everything is a problem, and that's fine," she wrote.
Although her craving is still a source of frustration, Summers does not stop her from enjoying the holiday. "I'll treat Thanksgiving to enjoy my family's food, and then I'll be back on the Whole30 train on Monday morning," she continued.

Summers reminder that a balanced lifestyle is a lifelong process. There is no quick fix or finish line. "Building habits takes time," and she is so true. Although the completion of Whole30 did not deliver exactly the desired results, she realized that her desire did not affect her choices. "Although I still definitely want chocolate, I do not have to eat it every day and let the sugar control my emotions," she wrote. "I want to feel good and do my best and I want to be my best self."
