I have struggled with my weight my entire life. I grew up with epilepsy so somewhere between middle school and high school I started gaining weight and peaked at 190 lbs at 18. Motivated by my grandfather to join Nutrisystem, I lost 80 lbs in fourteen months at 110 lbs, which is not a healthy weight for my height. I was underweight for a good six months before I started gaining weight again and I think the only reason why I started was because when I gave blood, I had no idea how much I weighed so I just put down 135 and the nurses told me I looked closer to 110 and that scared the shit out of me. I was also in a pretty abusive relationship for three years both emotionally and sexually. I finally broke free of that relationship a little over seven months ago and am now much more happier and stronger than I have ever been. I started getting on a regular eating and sleeping schedule and did Atkins for a few weeks and did lose some weight but never liked that vegetables were points and meats and cheeses were free points. Then a few days ago, I saw that one of my friends on Facebook lost 29 lbs in 30 days doing the Whole 30 program, so I started looking into it. As I was reading, I thought, this all makes sense, just eat what comes from God's green earth, no sugar of any form, dairy, no white potatoes, beans, rice, grains, or processed foods because those are the foods that fuel fat. So over these past few days I have been researching on what I can and cannot have and I think I came up with a good eating schedule and am officially starting my whole 30 program tomorrow on February 9, 2014 and am looking to lose a significant amount of body fat, with me luck!
