discoveringmyultimate Posted February 4, 2014 Share Posted February 4, 2014 I am excited to be embarking on this in 13 days, but I am really nervous, too! I don't want to have to start over because I made a mistake based on ignorance, so I am trying really hard to become informed. And I am concerned about my willpower. I'm living with family who are not going on the Whole30 and I'm concerned I will unthinkingly eat or drink something I shouldn't. Or that I will not resist something I should. But... this is for me. And I need to do this. It's time. My body's been telling me that for at least a year and now I'm going to listen. (Not that anyone wants to hear ALL of this, but I want to record these things before I start so I can look back at the end and hopefully see some awesome changes!) I HAVE: - PCOS, resulting in lots of hormonal cystic acne and (probably) weight retention - perpetual fatigue, even when I get plenty of sleep - and for the past few months, I've had trouble falling and staying asleep, which is a completely new and extremely unpleasant experience for me - chronic headaches (I'm currently on day 37 of a continuous one and pretty fed up!) - gained lots of weight in the last year, despite eating fairly well (I love my veggies!) My hopes for the Whole30 are: - to better understand my body - to break my bad food habits and dependencies and replace those with a passion for delicious, interesting, 100% healthy food - to discover whether I have any food allergies/sensitivities - to see whether I can control some of my PCOS acne through food - to try and develop a regular exercise routine - to improve my sleep - to have more energy - to kick this headache! I've already been using this forum as a hugely helpful resource while trying to research the Whole30 and what products are and aren't allowed, so I know you all are AWESOME. I am sure I will have a million questions and concerns, so thank you all in advance for your help and support! It means a great deal to me! Sorry this is so long!
