(Caution: ranting post ahead!)
I can't believe I actually did this. I didn't post about it once because I honestly didn't think I'd be able to complete it. But, with the help of my amazing husband, tons of great resources, and A LOT of prayer, I was able to make it through a life-changing process.
Results? I lost 7lbs without exercising (which I don't recommend, you NEED to work out...its a long story), my skin is glowing, my energy levels increased, my mood improved (that took a while), my digestive issues have subsided significantly, and I learned more about cooking than I ever thought I would! All this and so much more makes the last 30 days so worth it, as aggravating as they were at times. Don't get me wrong, this was difficult. And stressful. And I wanted to quit like 8 times. I don't know if I'll ever be able to do it again, but if I could, it'd be worth it. I can't wait to see what the reintroduction process brings!
Thanks to @whole30 social media, @realplans, @mikecritch, and @lizzyreid for your help in making this accomplishment possible 🎉
