Jenn!!!! Congrats on the 30 pounds! YOU GO, GIRL!!!! Obviously the whole30 is working great for you! So, are you counting calories, watching portions? Doc says I need to stay close to 1500 cal. so it will be something that is sustainable LONG term -- but I know my own body - I need to be closer to 1200 to see any reasonable loss. Whats your strategy?
I SOO hope seeing the ENT tomorrow will get you some answers and some relief - this is rediculous! No one should have to suffer for this long and not know what is causing it!
Is the race car still parked or did DH find a way to make the repairs? You haven't mentioned going to any races lately. Is this what he does for a living or is he otherwise gainfully employeed?
On the kiddo's in bed with you........ you have to be a bit more aggressive with helping them learn that even if they wake up they don't need to get out of bed and come to your room. It will take some work on your part - but for own rest and for their independence you need to help them break the habit of coming to your room for comfort. Don't mean to push........ just thought I'd add some encouragement. Once they learn that they can go back to sleep in their own bed it will break this habit.
How's DH on the idea of joining you on eating primal? Sounds like he really needs to get healthy!!! My son has taken off 120 pounds over the past 2 years by cutting calories (I think too drastically) and not eating any junk food or snacks between meals. Lately he has discovered his acne has been caused by grains and bread so has cut that out - and his allergies are a direct result of dairy so has cut that out as well. He's trying to eat more fruit and veggies, but has always been a meat and grains guy. Pasta or rice was his staple. He eats mostly chicken and ground beef. He is finally realizing that primal is the way he needs to be eating. Watching what is has done for me, and working with a guy who is also eating primal has made a convert out of him. Make this mom happy! Does your DH have any issues that you could attribute to his eating that would help him make the switch?
