My First Whole30: June 13, 2016

Hi everyone! In three days I will be starting the Whole30 as my doctor recently strongly recommended that I give it a shot. I've always struggled with fluctuating weight until a few years ago when I lost a lot of weight and kept it off. Unfortunately although I was in a good place with my weight, my migraines came more for frequently and more intense. Then a year ago I noticed I was running out of energy very early in the day and I started gaining weight again. I went from 90 pounds to 165 pounds, all in a year (I'm under 5 feet tall, so 90 pounds was not unhealthy for me). So here I am, uncomfortable in my skin, migraines everyday, no energy with depression factoring in due to everything else going on. I do hope I succeed in this diet as it is the second time I've followed a strict diet, the first being when I had my son and only wanted to fit back into my pre baby clothes!

Now that I've written you all more than I probably should've, I hope to get to know you all more and it would be amazing if I even had a buddy to help me on my journey! If anyone is interested or if anyone has any advice or tips I would appreciate it!

I am starting the WHOLE30 today! I can't keep putting it off.... I was in the best shape of my life last year, and feel like I am starting from ground zero again. I love eating healthy and whole, but a taste of sugar and I want more, more, more. I'm excited to do this Whole30 and would love support and accountability with others just starting!  

 

I used to be an avid running and that hasn't been a part of my life since my last half-marathon in Nov 2015. I'm ready to feel good in my body again, let's do this!!

I will also be starting my first Whole30 on the 13th.  I lost a lot of weight last year and have gained much of it back, which is not my first time on the weight loss/gain roller coaster!  More importantly, like you said, BostonMom, I truly want to crawl out of my skin and inhabit a new body!  I'm tired, don't sleep well, I'm easily stressed and I'm at my wits end! I always refused to even consider a Whole30 because I thought it would be too restrictive, too demanding, too much work.  I'm now ready to do anything to feel better and take control of my health.  I'm terrified and excited at the same time, hoping that it can change the game for me! Good luck to you!  I'm happy to be your buddy if you are interested!

Hello Everyone. I too will be starting on the 13th. I have gained a bit of weight from stress eating while my husband has been going through cancer treatment since January this year. He is finally done with chemo treatments, and is getting good reports from his doctors. As life is starting to get back to some level of normalcy, it's time to start taking care of myself again. I'm so ready to start feeling and looking better! I hope to find support here as well as lend support and encouragement to others that are starting or already on this journey.

Best wishes to all!

Jen

Hello, I am also starting on June 13th. I am a sugar addict and will do well for a few weeks then eat a bag of candy. It makes me feel so guilty. I also have digestive issues and allergies that I'm hoping will improve.  Would love a buddy to be accountable to if any one is interested.
