AJ Banks Posted January 7, 2014 Share Posted January 7, 2014 Okay dokay. I am officially counting down, or eating down? until I officially start my second whole30. I have some healthy 'non' w30 foods that need eating, and I am weaning off milk and easing back on to some of my fav foods from before. Also, I want to make sure I'm reeeeealllllly ready when I hit the 'start' button! By the looks of the fridge contents it should be within a week to 10days, maybe sooner. I am 24 weeks pregnant today! This is my first pregnancy, and it began in the final days of my first successful whole30 last summer. I have to say, even with the pregnancy, and re-introducing certain non paleo foods back into my life, my body maintained the benefits for a long time! I lost about 6lbs... for me that was a lot... and probably about 3% bodyfat (135 down to 129lbs and 18%-15%bf). Those were not goals btw, just a bonus result of reducing inflammation. My goals were purely digestive healing and energy balance related. I have had chronic blood sugar issues my entire life, and developed food sensitivities that I could no longer ignore. That said, the benefits of the program were obvious to me and I planned on doing it again this coming summer, after baby arrives. But recently I've been feeling like dairy is not serving me well (and I have be heavily consuming dairy products) and a little clean-up right now while I'm feeling good and can focus on myself %100, might be a good idea. So here goes! I live in a pretty remote area, with very little access to any kind of 'health' community, and the forum really helped me to not feel isolated last time. I also used the daily emails, though I don't think I'll need those this time. So, I'll be bumping around on the site... looking for fellow experimenters, pregnant or not, to tag along with. Here's to a great way to start a great year! AB Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
