Hello All, This is the first time I have posted in here. I just completed Day 24 of my first ever Whole 30 cycle. So here goes my fear, babble, confusion rant, lol. I will admit here I am 29 years old, 5'4" and my starting weight was 286.6, I was at the heaviest I have ever been in my life. I was bingeing on fast food sometimes 3x a day and always eating out. If i had to guess my daily caloric intake was 5000+. I'm a cardiac register nurse in a hospital, I know hypocrisy right. Well i finally reached my breaking point of being sore, tired, depressed, angry, moody, broke, nasty skin, no sleep, no focus, pain and just miserable. I'm too young to be feeling so immobile at work and after work, I plan to be in this career for 20 plus more years and the way i was headed I was going to be a patient soon. I've been single since I was divorced at 23 and I feel my weight is a huge factor and loneliness has set in hard. So my aunt mentioned this and how her and my uncle saw great results. I felt i needed something tough and strict, something to complete do a 180 with, I've tried other things in the past and I would sabotage myself the second the scale didn't show as much weight loss at the week before, then proceed to gain everything back, plus more. That's long story short....fast forward to today Day 24, I feel freakin amazing, my skin is so clear, i have no dandruff, I'm not nearly as sore after a 13 hours shift and I can see small physical changes. However I don't feel prepared for reintroduction. I'm obese and very unhealthy and still have major cravings and want to binge, i feel i need more tough strict love before i'm released into the "normal" world, lol. I was thinking about doing a round 2 immediately. What are the thoughts or feelings about this? Is there a reasoning that this may be frowned upon or detrimental to my overall health transformation. I'm open to any and all suggestions. Thank you. Toni
Hi, I successfully finished my first whole 30 Nov30th and started out really good and overall results were decent 18 lbs, somewhat less pain, definitely more energy although some days better than others. I am very obese have over 100 lbs to lose and had gastric bypass nearly 10 years ago and so have been doing the 5 smaller meals and seemed to work okay. Anyone else have worse skin issues since being on program ? I also have started gaining bit weight back but remain compliant except for small amount bacon and a dollop of ketchup twice and on road trip this weekend had two slices of pizza. Just wondering if this program is for me given my Health issues but have felt better than in a long time ???
Yes, that's right. 150. I am 5' 9" and was 298 lbs. I just completed my first Whole30 and lost 26 lbs. and enough inches my clothes fall off me. (Didn't get a good measurement on Day 1) Sure, the weight loss is the exciting part. But I also threw away my thyroid medicine, I have boundless energy without my (former) 4-6 cups of coffee a day and my egg allergy is GONE! I had heard my sister talk about Whole 30, Paleo, grain-free, etc. for two years now, and finally decided to do it. I was able to stick to the plan through business travel and a two week vacation at my brother's house. After a few days in between the end of my original Whole30 and a few "off-road" items (I was on vacation!), my second Whole30 starts today from the comfort of my home. 124 lbs to go! I have never been more ready! I LOVE WHOLE30!
I know it's only been 10 days since my last post, but I have seen a significant change in my appearance so I wanted to update All I have heard in my life was "eat healthy" and you will lose weight. But when I used to think of eating healthy, I always thought I would have to deprive myself of foods that taste good. Whole 30 has completely changed that perspective. Doing Whole 30 has done so much for me physically, emotionally and mentally. But it has also introduced me to great new recipes! Before Whole 30, almost every meal we made was centered around pasta or mashed potatoes. All of our meals now are balanced between vegetables and meat, with a fruit as a "dessert". And everything we have tried we have loved! So here is a picture to show how different I look. Everyone is noticing at work now and that is a great feeling. There have been so many opportunities at work to slip up but I actually have no desire to. Between cupcakes, ice cream, and candy and snacks in our kitchen, I am so proud and surprised that I don't want any of it. I think it's because I know how I used to feel and I don't want to feel that way again. I don't have a weight or measurements to report since I'm not weighing until Day 60.
