smobear Posted July 21, 2014 Share Posted July 21, 2014 Husband and I started our first Whole30 yesterday, July 20th. We're both 30 years old and are coming into this being very overweight and needing to lose a significant amount of weight, but for me, more specifically, I'm doing this because I'm tired of feeling like absolute crap every day. I have PCOS and have been contending with it for most of my life; also, recently I've been feeling mega sluggish and having joint pain and bloodwork shows inflammation that they just can't figure out a cause for. I'm on medication that is sort of helping, but it's one of those meds where it's likely that as soon as I get off of it, it'll all come back. I'm REALLY not looking forward to the idea of being on any medication for the rest of my life, so... here I am. Both hubby and I have somehow managed to luck out and are not otherwise unhealthy -- our BP and blood sugar are normal and cholesterol could use a little help but isn't in danger-zone or anything. Our challenges are essentially laziness and lack of time. We commute an hour+ each way to work and back every day and typically find that the extra effort it takes to prepare a healthy dinner is usually beaten out by the desire to zone out in front of the TV or go to bed early. We've tried multiple times on multiple different plans -- Weight Watchers (which I've done several times with varying success), South Beach... you name it. But now, something's gotta give. I'm blogging about my progress -- I'd be happy to share the link if anyone's interested! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
