Jess30 Posted January 14, 2016 Share Posted January 14, 2016 Well, prior to starting the whole 30 I wanted to get bloodwork so that I had some physical data to compare other than just the number on the scale since historically that has depressed me and off railed me on other "diet" attempts. So, I went to my doctor today and spoke with him about where I am at mentally and my plans for the Whole 30 and he showed me some numbers that I had a feeling were going to be there. I dont remember the technical terms, but some sugar number from 65 up to 95 last time I had blood work. What ever that number is, 115 is diabetes. Then there was some hemoglobin number that last bloodwork I was at a 5.5 and diabetes is 5.7. (i might have the numbers slightly off, but you get the idea) My BMI was 39. So... he said he wouldnt be surprised if my numbers come back from todays bloodwork as diabetic. This has given the whole 30 for me even MORE importance... I mean, if I fail this time its not only about my weight... its about diabetes at 35! As depressing as it is, I am so happy I have this tool in my back pocket. Its to the grocery store this weekend to stock up on whole 30 foods, throw out the old & start on Monday planned and with all of the tools I need to make it through this. Its scary, because I dont want to fail again. It's exciting, because this seems different... not like a band-aid diet. Most of all it is necessary! I HAVE to do this for my kids, for my husband, for MY LIFE. I just HAVE to... 30 days. I have to. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
