Hi all! I'm a 36 y/o breadwinning mom with a demanding dream job and beautiful little family. I'm overweight (5'6", 210 lbs) and have PCOS. We're thinking about having #2 but before making the dive I've been working on prioritizing "self-care", stress reduction and generally achieving a better sense of balance (i.e., making time for friends, hobbies, hubby, exercise, etc in addition to work & mommying). Part of the self-care has been making the time to deal with annoying health issues I've been ignoring for a long time. I've been going to the dermatologist to deal with persistent acne for over a year now with no noticeable results. In the last meeting, my derm suggested starting Accutane which I've been apprehensive about. I went to my primary yesterday evening to discuss and after reviewing my family history of insulin resistance (long line of diabetics on my dad's side), my primary recommended me trying the whole 30. I started this morning. So far, so good! Wish me luck!!
I thought I got myself ready for this new journey, but now that I am starting and a few hours, I feel like I didn't do enough. My husband and I researched the foods I could have and what I needed to stay away from. He even made me a whole 30 shopping list in our Out Of Milk app. I moved around/ got rid of foods I thought may be a temptation. I also got an app that lets me scan the food to see if it is compliant. I have a group of friends doing it with me, and I set up a private FB group for us to talk about how things are going. I couldn't get the books, and am not sure if I prepared mentally. I know why I am doing all of this. I want my stomach issues to stop controlling my life. I think I would feel better if I had gotten paid before the holiday break and could have done the shopping I needed.
