happykate Posted June 23, 2012 Share Posted June 23, 2012 Hi my name is Kate. I am the mother of a 17 year old girls who wanted to go on this Whole30 in hopes that it would heal damage that has happened while fasting to her metabolism, and help her with stomach aches. I, myself have been overweight and obese for the past 17 years. I had undiagnosed gestational diabetes 17 years ago and put on 80 pounds. I was unable to get back to a healthier weight until a year ago when I worked 60 pounds off through healthy eating, logging all food, and exercise. I have kept this weight from taking me over again for a year. I want to be healthier. I want to support my daughter. We live with my husband and 8 year old son who are not on this Whole30, but are eating much of what we are eating for Meals 1-3 for the most part, but also go out for treats. As a result, we have junk food in the house that we must live with in order to keep peace- it may, over time, spirit its way away (circular files, large dark bags). This is day 11, and this is very hard. I have given birth twice- this is hard. I have always taken my coffee black. I wish us all well in this endeavor!!
