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.

Not that you will have a meltdown at day 23. I'm just saying that different people experience different things, and be gentle with yourself if you experience something challenging a few weeks from now. The more I read this forum, the more I realize that it's not as uncommon as I thought.

Rather than dwell on what I might be doing wrong and why I'm not cranky, I've decided to just appreciate the fact that I'm not. If I hit a rough patch at some point, I'll deal. If I don't, wooohoooo!!
Congratulations on your success so far and good luck with the rest of your Whole30!

Having said all that....I have NEVER felt better. I have a great amount of energy (I used to nap daily), I am happy (I've had bouts of depression), and best of all I am trying new foods and loving them!!
But like you, I'm wondering "what am I doing wrong?!?" I don't feel like crap like everyone says you should. I know for certain I haven't had any sugar, art. sweetners, dairy (I even clarified pastured butter for the first time ever--so easy!), or grains.
I have 3 kids that I make meals for 3x a day. They are about as non-paleo as it gets!! I am not even craving any of the sweets they are eating. They are apologizing to me for eating these things in front of me and I keep telling them it's ok, I don't really even want it. Is this normal?!?!?! This is a completely new feeling for me and I LOVE it, but I must be doing SOMETHING wrong, right??!!

So far (not quite two weeks in) I've had a few dehydration headaches (my fault), am eating way more than I ever expected, and have lost weight (I'm not a scale addict; I had a mandatory weigh-in at work). Had a few instances where I was a bit touchy, but overall, I'm doing good. The tiredness that hit about mid-first week has mostly gone away, and I'm being way more productive at work and home!

That's awesome and I'm a bit jealous. My husband and I were pretty sleepy and took long naps during our first week. My last week, as well, I had a few days of being pretty tired even though I got a full 8 hours. I still have digestion and other issues that aren't fully healed so I attribute my sleepiness to that. It might catch up with you at a weird time, or you might not have any issues during the 30 days. Just count yourself fortunate and enjoy.
