Upset and need support
Posted 14 January 2013 - 03:21 PM
I am 5'5, 121. I eat 3 meals a day and take digestive enzymes. I walk at least 1 hour every day + weight training twice a week + ballet classes once a week. I donâ€™t have troubles with planning meals (though I am being slightly paranoid that I am eating too much fat), cooking or limiting snacks. I donâ€™t experience regular cravings for sugar or any other stuff Iâ€™ve given up either. I do not have any health issues or conditions (not so sure about this one anymore, but my recent blood test is ok).
I try to be positive, patient and just follow the guidelines. I try to convince myself that I just have to trust the process. Unfortunately I canâ€™t help but wondering how come that the magic isnâ€™t happening at all. I guess it all has just piled up and I feel terrible. Terrible.

It would be good if we could support each other.
On the bright side we are almost at the halfway mark and from what I have read, the final few weeks are when the changes take place.Maybe we need an experienced moderator to give us some love and encouragement?!

I felt kind of sick until about 2 weeks had gone by and then I started to feel good. Some people feel good sooner and some people take 30 days before things improve.
It is great to start feeling really good. I hope it comes for you sooner rather than later.
Do you know the forum rules? Review them at http://forum.whole30.com/topic/6-forum-rules/
The value of doing a Whole30 is to begin seeing meat, fish, eggs, veggies, and fruit as the good stuff and to start thinking of everything else as stuff we have to make do with occasionally.

@ladyhoward, thank you too! Sometimes all you need is to hear - it's alright. Having all this issues gives exactly the opposite impression - I am not doing any good for my body if it responds in such a crazy way. Also, you made a great point about the stress. I should focus on finding my zen.

I'm not going to give up and I suspect you won't either. I'll send you some good vibes for feeling better very soon!

I'll try my best to cheer up and be patient. Good things to come hopefully.

Kaleena, yay for dancing in T. Though I have to admit that ballet classes became much much harder - try to plie when you feel like a fish tank
Suzy, I eat all sorts of veggies, I love them all. I eat tons of greens - spinach, lettuce, chard and kale. I absolutely love Brussel Sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower (I think they are a no-no for now, limiting them). I also eat yams, celery, carrots, eggplants, squash, pumpkin, parsnips, turnips and zuccini. My must have everyday veggies would be cucumbers, tomatoes and bell peppers.

It's really good to share some of the worries and not-so-good bits in the way that we are doing - the forum is fantastic but I agree it piles on a whole lot of pressure when people are extolling how amazing they are feeling - when I spent the weekend running to the store to buy prune juice desperate to ease the pain and feel less like a barrel!
Anyway, yyyyaaaayyy to us for day 15 and half-way. I'm sure we are going to get the good stuff really soon - I just think in my case maybe I'm a bit behind as for me yesterday was definitely a 'kill all the things' day which I think I should have had about 10 days ago.
Cicatella, I am on the same page as you - and I thought I was pretty good diet-wise *before* too - I was paleo and thought that just cutting out the treats and alcohol would be a breeze, especially compared to some folks who have come straight off SAD eating.
Here's hoping you're doing some fabulous plies this afternoon! xxx

How are you doing, has your week improved? What about those plies? We are nearly at weekend number three!! Then there's only one left....... phew, hopefully we will look and feel amazing. I'm still waiting - feeling ok but I've not had a magical transformation from a caterpillar to a butterfly hahahaha! I think I might be over expecting from this eating lark!
