I have had quite a few health problems over the past few years. First it was PCOS that developed into type II diabetes. Then they found nodules on my thyroid. Last year, I began having chronic almost daily migraines. Since Christmas I have gained 20 lbs, felt even more fatigued and my hair started thinning. In July, I developed pancreatitis from a diabetes med that I was on. Last month they also found that I have hypothyroidism and I recently started medication. I have yet to feel better. For a long time I have known that I have to be the one to take control of my health. Today I started the whole30 diet where you heal your body with the foods that you eat. I can eat meat, fruits and vegetables in abundance. Technically I can also eat nuts, but they cause me to have kidney stones. And when I had to have a CT scan for pancreatitis, they saw numerous stones in my kidneys. Great. Anyway, I cut out all processed foods, sugar, dairy, grains, etc. In 30 days you individually add those foods back in to see how you respond. I'm also drinking a lot more water and starting the Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. I am ready. Good health doesn't come in a pill. It doesn't come easy. It takes hard work and dedication and the desire to feel better. I think I'm on the right track.
