Hey y'all! My name is Jeanell and I will be starting Whole30 tomorrow (5/10/2016)! I live in NYC and originally from Florida. I'm very excited about it after multiple self-afflicted delays. I pushed this off multiple times after reading the book because I was scared. Then I realized I have to do things that scare me or I won't live life to the fullest. I had a wake-up call this past week. I went to a new doctor last Wednesday and she weighed me at 358 pounds, my heaviest weight ever. After blood work results came in, I am now considered pre-diabetic, which I had a feeling was going to happen. Two days later, I was flying to Florida and I paid extra money for an extra legroom seat. However, the seat was tight and I could barely move. I was frustrated because I paid more money for more room so I can be comfortable, but my weight got in the way. I realized I had two options at that point (I will be traveling a lot for the rest of the year): 1-Buy a first class ticket that is very expensive to be able to sit in a seat where I fit...or 2-Change my lifestyle, lose weight, and not worry about whether I can fit in a seat on a plane. I am choosing option 2 because "ain't nobody got time" to pay extra money for something you cannot afford yet at this time in your life. In the past two years, I have had a slew of health issues. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and wear a CPAP machine, but I still wake up tired. The trigger for my sleep apnea was when I gained 30 pounds in 3 months due to a stressful job, overeating, and lack of exercise. Also my family medical history is not great and I don't want to repeat history with diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, arthritis, and more. I already see myself heading down that path, and I want to go down another path to a healthier life. I am very ecstatic about Whole30! I truly believe this is the first day of the rest of my best life! LET'S DO THIS!
Calling all January 1st Whole30'ers! Where are you?! Whether you're a newbie or veteran let's gather here for support and encouragement to start off 2016 with a bang! Who else is starting Jan 1? Comment here and introduce yourself! Let's do this! I'm Keely and I live in KS. I've done about 7-8 Whole30's in the past couple of years and it's never failed me. But I feel like I need this one more than ever. I let the holidays totally kick my ass. I plan to extend this Whole30 in to 60 or even a 90 maybe! January 1st is welcome here! Bring it, 2016!
I'm looking to start the whole30 the first week of January. I've been trying to get my health back on track ever since I came back from a semester abroad in May. I had a great time enjoying the food in Spain, but created some poor habits that I have not been able to break 7 months later. I gained 10 lbs abroad and literally haven't lost one.. or i'd lose a few and gain twice as much by the end of the week due to my sugar cravings and alcohol. I'm ready to take on this challenge. I know it will be hard because I am about to start my last semester of college. I hang out with people who drink often and who will probably think I'm nuts to take 30 days off. But it won't be impossible and I know it will be so worth it in the end. I am a Pure Barre fanatic and also want to get 4 classes in a week while on the whole30. If anyone has tips for someone who is in college I'd love to hear them! Excited to begin this journey to improved health
