    Day 18 Please Help!

    Thank you all so much!! And LadyShanny, I really appreciate your compassion! You nailed it! I have turned to netflix, and carbs way too much because of all the chronic pain. I am going to keep on going and make this a permanent part of my life. I do feel like there is less fat on my stomach. So no more worrying about what the scale says for now. Happy Holidays!

    Day 18 Please Help!

    Thank you for your help! My doctor said I have "abnormal weight gain." Well, that could be because I was diagnosed with Two different types of tick diseases this summer that really kicked me in the pants. Then just as I stared feeling better, I broke my rib water skiing so I was not able to run and exercise for a few months. So right now I am running 3-4 miles, or spinning or doing barre or yoga each day (one of these not all each day). My goal is to exercise for at least 1- 1.5 hours per day. As far as food goes: here is a typical day: Breakfast: 3 egg omelet with sausage, mushrooms and spinach, 20 ounces of water with a splash of unsweetened cranberry juice (like a tablespoon at most), 3-4 grapes. Lunch: Leftovers from last night: Chicken curry (1 breast) 1 cup of cauliflower rice 1/2 cup raspberries or apple Dinner: Shrimp romanesco 1 cup leftover cauliflower rice I may have a small snack of plain almonds and raw coconut. And as I said before, I have on occasion, had a Lara bar for breakfast with some protein. I suffer from very intense migraines which make me very nauseous. Sometimes that's the only thing that sounds good. I'm also wondering if the strong pain medicine my doctor has me take when the migraines won't stop play a factor. I don't think the migraines are food related. I have degenerative disk disease in my neck and arthritis, so I obviously have physical issues. I just thought maybe the food I was eating was making them worse.
  3. Hi, I am on day 18. I have been very diligent at my first whole 30 program aside from a few lara bars (in emergency situations) and consuming extra nuts the fist week. Anyway, when I started my 4 goals and big "whys?" where: 1. Weight loss (I have gained 25 pounds in last two years due to medical issues 2. migraines 3. I want to get off sugar and not be addicted any more. I want to be in control of food and not let food control me! 4. Increase my energy level. Not be tired all the time. So I went to the doctor on day 15 and THEY weighed me and I weigh exactly the same. Very frustrating because I am eating so well and exercising regularly. My doctor even recommended putting me on a weight loss medication ( I am 5'7 and weigh 157) this was so humiliating! I've always been the skinny girl. Usually when I eat well- especially when I get off sugar and simple carbs, and exercise, the weight comes off very quickly. I also still have at least one severe headache or migraine per day. I do have increased energy and better control over food. I am just wondering if the weight changes usually come off at the end of the 30 days or if it usually takes longer. I was planning on doing this for 45 days anyways. But why have I not lost anything??? I am sleeping well and my stress level is moderate to low right now. Thank, Kimberlee
  4. I am doing 45 days for my 45th birthday. I started November 3rd which actually puts me ending on the 17th as well! :-) Nice to have some support! I want to carry through as close to the Christmas holidays as possible and be very careful with what I eat.
  5. I am having terrible migraines. That's why I started this to hopefully help me with them. I am on day 6. With the migraines comes nausea and I am also on my cycle. The last few days have been the most difficult thing ever! I am existing in migraine hell. The pain is incredible. Today all I want is salty nuts. So that's what I had for breakfast. Is that okay to do every now and then (like once a week?)
