Jamaymay Posted January 26, 2013 Share Posted January 26, 2013 Hi there, My brother's lovely girlfriend gave me "It Starts With Food" a few months back and I just finished it after inching my way through, kind of dreading my future life changes that awaited me at its completion. So now I'm here and I've been dropping things out of my diet and putting new things in slowly but steadily. I have given myself until February 1st to work out the kinks and then I'll OFFICIALLY begin my Whole30. But man, there are some temptations staring me down big time and I'm entirely annoyed that I can't have what I want to have. My inner toddler is raging and the program hasn't even started. But it's worth a shot and I trust my brother's girlfriend when she says it's a "game changer." I have some tests I'll be doing on myself throughout and if these areas are positively affected than I will be a believer for life and sing my praise from the mountaintops. 1. Weightloss will be a welcome result, especially my clothes fitting differently. 2. My whole life I have had Keretosis Pilaris, otherwise known as little bumps all over my arms. I'm SURE this has something to do with some sort of inflammation, so if that goes away even a little bit I will be thrilled. 3. At 32, I have awesomely started developing Malasma, which affects my skin by giving me brown spots on my face, which I've been told has to do with hormones. If doing the Whole 30 effects that, I will be in a state of disbelief. 4. My energy levels are all over the place. My sleep patterns are out of whack and I sometimes dip into little depressions. I would LOVE to find myself with more energy, balance and better sleep. Depression is annoying, and I'd love to put that behind me to just live happy and healthy. That's what I'm bringing to my Whole30. I'm excited. Slightly resigned. Untrusting of myself and my willpower, but I'm going forward! Any positive feedback, encouragement or advice would be most welcome. Jaime Link to comment
