  1. 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!!

    Goodbye Polycystic Ovary Syndrome!

    I have started whole 30 today. I have recently realized that every physical symptom I have had for the past 20 years is related to cysts on my ovaries! I am starting today praying for a complete hormone reset and relief of all symptoms. All support appreciated!
  3. I want to preface this post with the fact that I know Whole30 is about the non-scale victories and not ultimately about weight loss, BUT since I have completed my second Whole30 after taking a slight week-long break in order to continue to shed some more weight/become more lean... this is important to me. I have had some non-scale victories as a result of this lifestyle (such as increased energy levels despite my Hashimotos), but I am pretty overweight and don't have many ailments outside of my hypothyroidism (26 years old, 5'4", 183 lbs). I'm relatively active since I work outside a lot thanks to my career as an environmental scientist, but since I'm a consultant there's A LOT of traveling and I haven't had time to hit the gym on top of meal-prepping. I have been biking to and from work the past week (totals to about 30 minutes a day, more if I need to bike to the grocery store) just so I can get SOME soft of activity in. I want to get back to a weight where I can start running long distances again without irritating my hip, since I am signed up for my second half marathon in October (I start training officially in August). I ran my first half about two years ago and was about 170 lbs and had no issues with my joints. Anyway, I was wondering if it's totally wrong to kind of count calories in the back of my mind when I'm planning my meals? I am still making sure that I'm following the palm-protein, thumb-fat, and rest of the plate with veggies. My typical day looks something like this M1: Breakfast scramble (prepped Sunday with 5 veggies I get from my CSA that week. This week it was beets, radishes, kale, mushrooms, bell pepper with compliant chicken apple sausage and eggs. The veggies vary slightly since it depends on what I get in my share that week, but I try to have 5 different vegetables with the sausage and egg). M2: Leafy greens (again, depends on CSA share) topped with tuna/avocado or ground beef taco meat/avocado, 1 serving of fruit (apple, banana, blueberries, or grapes), and an extra veggie (carrot, sugar snap peas, or snow peas) M3: This varies a bit... I try to change the protein I have each day (chicken, beef, or ground turkey). I again keep the palm-protein, thumb-fat, and rest of the plate with veggies rule in mind with each meal. I also take a multivitamin with either lunch or breakfast (depends on when I remember lol). I am also on Levothyroxine for my Hashimoto's. This is a pretty vague post, but I was just wondering if anyone had any advise about how to drop some weight so I can start running again without pain.
  4. Is the intended audience of the whole 30 people who are struggling with illnesses and potential food intolerances/allergies? I'm 7 days in and not really enjoying it. I don't like the amount of food you're meant to eat and the starchy carbs. I'm really missing wholegrains and greek yoghurt. I don't feel much better or different, my pants aren't fitting any differently and I'm starting to feel like it's a setup
  5. I am a bit overwhelmed with what we can't eat during the whole30. Is the whole30 mainly to test what negative effects certain foods have on our bodies? My main concern is my sugar cravings that I want to get rid of. Is this one concern enough to try out the whole30? I definitely want to lose weight as well and have been having trouble the past years! Thank you!!
  6. Hi all, I'm on day 24 and usually feeling pretty good at this point (at least relative to how I used to feel, no tigerblood though) but today is just not a good day.I didn't sleep well and I'm just feeling really discouraged and anxious about what I'm going to do after my whole30 ends. I'm significantly overweight- 225lbs, 5'7" and I've been a chronic dieter for over 3 years now - usually weight watchers/calorie counting and a brief stint following the "Sugar Busters" method. I'm worried that I won't lose weight, or God forbid I will gain weight by the time this is over. I'm a true scale addict (my husband had to hide the scale from me this month) and I'm worried if I don't see numbers I'm hoping for that I'll fall off and start binging again - because that's what chronic dieting/failing has created in me. I've tried looking for some advice or encouragement here, but it looks like most of the people who express concerns about weightloss only need to lose 10-30lbs. I have a hard time relating to their "ditch the scale and follow how your body feels" theory because I have such a significant amount to lose and I'm worried that if I do that I'll never get healthy - which I know sounds ridiculous. I'm sure I'm just in a funk because I couldn't sleep last night and that I'll feel better tomorrow, but I'd appreciate any advice or encouragement.
