I've decided to do another Whole30 starting September 1st. I'm so excited because I felt SO good on this plan and lost a bunch of weight last year. I've kinda been stalling lately so I think this will be the jump start I need! Anyone else a Whole30'er?
You beat me, 1967mama! I was popping into to invite anyone who is interested to join us :)
I love this thread and seeing everyone's progress!
It's been almost a year since I started the whole 30 thread and my weight loss adventure. In that short amount of time, I have gotten rid of all my Fibro symptoms, lost 71 lbs (so far), gone from a size 18 to almost fitting comfortably into an 8, Going from a high Obese to a normal BMI.
It's funny though, you notice the changes, but you are living them so it doesn't seem very dramatic, it's a slow acceptance of this new way of being. I had this exchange with a delivery guy yesterday that really made me realize how far I've come:
Package delivery, This guy is pretty young EARLY 20's. We had a lot of deliveries when we first moved, including our dishwasher (poor guy) so chatted with him a few times, enough he remembered my name in future deliveries. Probably not had a delivery for the last 5 months or so.
Purolator dude: "I have a package for Mr. Swick"
Me: Okay I'll take it" reaches for the package, slight resistance from Purolator dude, doesn't want to give it up. He takes a long look, I could actually see the light bulb go off.
Purolator dude: "You're not Swick, are you?"
Me: "Was last time I checked"
Purolator dude: "Wow! I didn't recognize you! Have you lost weight ?"
Me: "Yup, quite a bit"
Purolator dude: "You look awesome, congratulations!"
Purolator Dude: Holds out his fist for a fist bump
This was pretty much my first interaction with someone who I don't see that often. It was pretty awesome :)
