anewertammy Posted March 2, 2013 Share Posted March 2, 2013 Can I do this? Hi, my name is Tammy and my body needs Whole30. I'm 45 years old, stand 5'3â€ and weigh 386 lbs. I've had Type 2 Diabetes since 2002, high blood pressure earlier than that and now have high cholesterol and my Thyroid hormone is too low. I take eight prescriptions (15 pills) daily. I don't cook (know how, just don't) which means I eat out or carry in. Usually cheesy Mexican or burgers and fries. I'm addicted to chocolate, diet Coke and diet Mountain Dew (oh how I love diet Mountain Dew). Giving up sugar, dairy, grains, and diet soda sounds like a headache waiting to happen (literally). I'm afraid but want this change so badly. I would love to break my unhealthy addictions and learn to have a healthy relationship with foodâ€¦for the rest of my life. I hope it's not too late and that I can repair some of the damage already done to my body. Even though Whole30 will be the toughest thing I have yet to encounter (understatement I am sure) and I often quit when the going gets tough, I am committed. I can and will do this. I look forward to checking in regularly for advice, support and cheer on others making the same journey. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
