New Leaf

I never thought it would happen to me. 

How many times have people thought that? We never think it will be us. "Those things" happen to other people.

Infertility.

I've talked about it in the past--being more sensitive with what we say and how we frame things. But I didn't know I was talking about myself. I have suspected for a while that things have not been "normal", but I didn't want to say anything until I knew what I was saying.

So far, the results of tests have done two things: cleared Adam, and required further testing on me. Further testing meant an MRI of my pituitary to determine if there is a tumor causing my {very} high prolactin levels (results [AND story!] to come).

That hole feels A LOT smaller when I'm squished inside it!
Part of the treatment my doctor has prescribed is changing what I eat, as I am also Hypothyroid and Vitamin D deficient. So, starting Monday, Adam and I will be transitioning from Take Shape for Life to Whole30.

I must confess, I wasn't really sold on Whole30, even after reading through the website. But I was curious enough to buy the book (It Starts with Food). It sat on my table for close to a week before I finally picked it up to read. And boy did I go down the rabbit hole. Read the book in a day, and was sold.

Yup. This is totes happening.
These 13 gallon garbage bags, an eight gallon bag, and one box later our pantry, spice cabinet, and fridge/freezer have been purged of all non-compliant food products. Today marks the trip to stock the pantry and fridge/freezer. Tomorrow and Sunday will be food-prep, and Monday--well, Monday is going to be the beginning of a whole new life.

There's a lot of change and uncertainty in the near future, and that's why I'm documenting here--a place to record results, ups, downs, and to be accountable.

Let it begin.
