    Holly got a reaction from Robin Strathdee in food dreams   
    I had the craziest dream last night! What really happened: I got a phone call at 5am to say I didn't have to come to work because of low census. Awesome! I could go back to sleep for the impending Snowmaggedon.
    Dream: Went into work even though I was called off, then couldn't find my way out of the hospital. Lots of corridors later, I bump into MELISSA HARTWIG who is there to give me a consultation. We go into a library. We have our consultation and she tells me lots of things that are wrong with my diet. She starts eating a bowl of white rice and carrots (!) and tells me it is just fine to eat that. I'm feeling guilty for not eating the right things. She leaves our area and I lose her yoga mat in a river going down the middle of the street next to the library, which is all actually a hospital hallway. Then I am scared she will be mad that I lost her yoga mat, and I run down the street, which becomes a regular hallway, and I become naked.....and have to hide in a bathroom so no one will see me.
    Bwaaa haa haa! Now that was a DREAM!
    Note to self: Do not watch Hartwig videos before going to bed.

    Hi Everyone!!
    Just to keep people posted about my post- checkup. Today was Day 45 and my overall "Check in" with my doctor to see how my cancer/celiac was responding.... the results are in and they are GOOD!!!
    My blood levels are actually NORMAL... my Red Blood Count, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit... ALL OF IT!! NORMAL!!
    My total WBC is still about high, but it's better then it was before!!!!!! I fluctuated with a very low white blood count for this past year and a half (between 1-3,000) and now it is at 12,000.... hoooolllly crap. AND! On my ultrasound, the tumors located on my cervix (from cancer in previous years, they are benign but still a pain)... have reduced in size to less then 1mm.... and that is with NO radiation treatments or surgery!!! I don't know if it's a combination of W30 and a higher presence but I'm excited about these results!! LOL
    I have in total lost 15lbs in these 45 days by following the template of W30 and revisiting the book ISWF when I feel I need reminding as to why I do this. I have another follow-up in 15 days ending my W60 challenge and onto Whole Life! Hopefully at the end of the next check up, we can change my chemo days from 2 to 1 or eliminate it altogether!!
    Thank you to everyone for continued support!! I love reading everyone's success stories on the boards for inspiration!
    Have a sparkly day and blessed moments!!!!

    Tuesday was the end of my w30:... And for me the journey doesn't stop there...
    I'm 29 years old and i have cancer. Along with that- i have Celiac so i have been battling the past year and a half with food until my doctor and I really needed to try something new.
    My white blood cell count was low- Really low. Scary low. I've been on chemo since October and had tried everything I could to keep up my energy, my nutrition and my overall spirit. There's nothing worse then people telling you "oh you're young!" when you fight 2 diseases at the same time and you can barely get out of bed you feel weak, old and crippled. Everyday was a war with myself and the tireless efforts I go through just to put a smile on my face that things were ok. They weren't. I fluctuated weight, fought depression and barely made it through everyday without crying.... Until W30.
    30 days ago i made the decision to fight. I was going to change everything I knew about food and "reset" myself. I read ISWF and was instantly motivated by the book and a friend who was also already 2 weeks into her W30. I did my grocery shopping, started plannning and pre-making meals and using food as my medicine. I went through ALL the horrible symptoms as your body shifts back to neutral. Headaches, mood swings, irregular sleep patterns, hunger pains, sugar dragon cravings: you name it! Until one day, mu body hit the switch. It was like night and day! No really, i went to bed one night: the next morning POOF! W30 magic!! I had never felt so AMAZING.... I started sleeping better and all through the night. Cravings stopped, hunger pains between meals subsided and I could run marathons with the new found non-caffeinated energy i had.... All of it i still have today.
    30 days (and stil going!!) later... Here I am. I stepped on the scale (i had hidden it the day i started to rid myself of the temptation to "weigh in") and I am down 12lbs!!! I checked in with my doctor: in 30 days, my blood cell count is UP.. By almost 10,000!!!!!! That's a huge increase in a short time!! I have been awakened!!! Never in my life have I felt so energized and refreshed!! I don't feel like I have cancer. I don't feel the struggle to find celiac compliant food. I enjoy the natural taste of the food God provided in the first place!!!
    I only have one life, one body... And it needs to be taken care of and W30 has done that for me. My doctor gave me the best piece of news I've had in over a year... If i continue with w30 LIVING... My results could triple in the coming months and in doing so... I could potentially elimiante the need for chemo and just keep my medicine as simple as what i eat.
    Thank you W30!!!!! I owe you my life!!!!
