  1. I need ideas and suggestions. I did my whole30 and felt like I was really successful. I lost 10 pounds, bloat was down and felt pretty good. I didn't feel that much different than pre-Whole 30 and the really only "health" related item I was hoping to see improvement in didn't happen. But, I could see the plan was great. I enjoyed cooking and prepping and staying away from the processed foods. I liked that my son was seeing his mom and dad eating in a new way. And then....I started to add a little bit of this and a little bit of than back in. Sugar, fast food, grains here and there. I wanted some drastic awful thing to happen to my body so I would HAVE to stop cheating- but nothing. I didn't notice anything. Except, I've slowly put the weight back on. And, I've slowly "poofed" back out. It's taken about 6 months but I'm pretty sure I'm right back where I started. When I eat the wrong foods, the guilt is overwhelming. The mind games and raitonalizations and the things I say to myself are awful. It gets really, painfully DARK for me. And I think I do it just to try and make myself feel so badly that I don't cheat again. I'm trying to make the pain much greater than the pleasure. But it doesn't work. Instead, I hate myself, hate my relationship with food, tell myself "I'll fix it tomorrow", and blah blah blah. What do you all do to keep your mind with the program? How can I change the awful things I say to myself to things that will actually HELP me stay on track? Beating myself up isn't working. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. I'm wanting to start whole30 #2 but I'm afraid to start and fail (again). Trust me, the last 6 months I've PLANNED at least 4 - and accomplished none. I'm afraid another failure will just be too much to take. Where can I get the guts to do it again? Thanks to you all!

    Too much fat??

    How do you know if you are consuming too much fat? I feel like I might be, but I'm not sure of what signs to look for. Here's a typical day: Sasuage and roasted sweet potato (roast w/olive oil) Chicken, salsa, lettuce/spinach, avacado meat (typically red meat), roasted veggies (olive or coconut oil), maybe a few cashews. I have bacon often in one meal or the other as well. I'm just concerened with the fat content in the meat, plus when I roast veggies, plus the avacado and wondered if there are signs my body would give me that will clue me in. THanks! And Day 29!!!!!!!

    TMI POST...Constipation. Help!

    What about the opposite issue - potty daily - first thing in the morning. And when I gotta go.. I GOTTA GO. And - (farm girl here), it's like a cow patty in the potty. Day 27, pretty much been like this since I started my Whole 30. Too much fat?
  4. Thank you for your post. I'm 23 days into my first whole 30, staying away from the scale, and hoping with all hope I will lose weight. I've always been the pudgy girl. I've tried so much to change before, but for some reason, this is making sense. Please oh please let it work, because I'm not sure what I'll do if it doesn't. Thanks----for offering hope.
