bunnyb0999 Posted September 29, 2018 Share Posted September 29, 2018 Hi all, My name is Sara, I'm 27 and I live in Houston, TX. I am very excited to do Whole30. To give a little background, in the past 11 years, I have had some significant health problems. First, my gallbladder turned traitor and decided that gallstones were a really cool thing to create and try to share with me. We, naturally, were in disagreement on the matter and the gallbladder had to go. After that, I developed IBS and that has made life pretty difficult. It's not fun having to know where bathrooms are everywhere you go. Finally, I have had issues with hormonal imbalance and my OBGYN recommended when I went to college that I try the depo prevara shots. I wish I had the experience I have now because I would have never agreed if I had known. The shots activate the hormone that tells you that you're hungry and from that point on, I have had issues with my weight. Long story short, I am very excited to do Whole30 because of what I have heard from my friends and colleges as to how much better they felt after starting and I hope to live healthier because of it. A few challenges I know I will have is quitting soda. I get all the withdrawal symptoms: migraine, nasuea, dizziness, the works. How do you all cope with quitting and the withdrawal? Also, I go to a weekly knitting group and they generally go to locations that are not the healthiest. What are your tips for resisting temptation. Thank you for reading and I hope you all have a bodacious weekend! I hope to get to know you all better :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
