sallycaroline888 Posted December 31, 2013 Share Posted December 31, 2013 I've always been a chubby girl, I guess you couldn't call me "fat" right now. I'm female, 5'8 and 165 pounds. I'm a few pounds overweight, and my goal is to lose 30 pounds. I usually have to wear medium or large size shirts and large size pants, I want both of them to become small to medium. Of course, I can't do that in a month, but with the help of Whole30, I believe I can achieve it. So, I've already tried Whole30 once, in late November I believe, but gave up on the 7th day for a chocolate, that I didn't even like. I really, really hope I can do this. For a cheese and potato lover like me, it's going to be tough. I don't think the sugar is going to be a huge problem, I can handle that. But I believe this time I can do this. I just have to think about how much better I'll feel. I admit, my basic goal here is weight loss. I really have no other health problems, I am actually healthy and my sugar and cholesterol levels are very healthy. I have never had any problems with my sleep or energy. I never really ate fast food in my whole life, since I don't live in a big city, but as I said, I love cheese, bread and potatoes, and that's why I have excess fat to lose. But I also want to get rid of my light cellulite on my thighs and my light muffin top. But, besides weight loss, is another problem that needs to be solved - keratosis pilaris. It's the thing I hate most about my body, and I have it pretty much everywhere, legs, arms, face. For those who don't know, keratosis pilaris is a harmless condition that builds up small, red bumps all over your body. Although it's harmless, it definitely doesn't look good. I hate wearing shorts and short-sleeved shirts, not because of my excess fat, but because of these bumps. I hope, I really hope Whole30 helps with this. I'm sure I can't do this by myself, without the help of this forum. I'll probably be logging in every day so I'm reminded of my goal and get more motivation. Since I can easily give up on a piece of grilled cheese, I must remain motivated every second. I believe I chose the right time to do the Whole30, because the new year is coming and it's a great kick-off. Also, my mum has been on a diet for like a month too, so it'll be easier with her motivation. My breakfasts are going to be two bananas and an apple, almost every day. If not, some other fruit. My lunch is variable: sometimes it'll be cooked chicken, sometimes catfish or tuna, other times it'll be an omelette with tomatoes, and the occasional burger with some onions. The lunch is always served with a plain lettuce and tomato salad, with oil, vinegar and salt. I'll be honest, I really don't like most of the paleo diet recipes, I like to keep the food simple and eat it seperately. So I'll just keep up with the foods I mentioned above, since they are the only ones I liked. Dinner is usually a cabbage and carrot salad with oil and some kiwis or some other fruit. If I ever get hungry, my snacks will either be nuts or an egg. Well, that's that. Tomorrow's my first day. I'll probably be making a small calendar for January with small motivating messages, because I really need the motivation. If you've had any results on curing Keratosis Pilaris after doing the Whole30, please leave a comment, I'm really interested.
