    So I decided to go off plan on Sunday and restart Monday. Well, today my breastfeeding baby woke up with a big pimple on his cheek. He used to have baby acne on both cheeks but it cleared up during my whole30! I didn't even make the connection until today. So, back on plan for me!

    ElkaSimmy, I feel the same way about wine. It'seems just not worth it to me anymore. Prynceszh, that is great. You are doing good things for yourself. Today was my 3rd day of no fruit. I am hungry alot. I have a hard time finding time to sit and eat a real meal. But I keep reminding myself that it'should worth it.

    Well, the scale says I lost 9 lbs but my mirror selfie doesn't look much different from my "before" pic. I am going to keep eating this way because I want to lose more weight and I never really reached tiger blood. I think I need to just cut out all fruit.

    I'm just going to keep going. I feel like my body needs more time reach tiger blood phase. Plus I don't really want any particular food, just sugar in general. I've broken up with chocolate for good (I had already done that a few months ago, but we had one last fling on Easter), and what's the point of eating sugar if it's not chocolate? Now when I'm hungry I'm craving real food. My face and tummy look slimmer. I can stay awake past 8 pm. I still have lots of work to do on managing my uncomfortable emotions without using food. I've got a good thing going here so I have no desire to stop.

    How is everyone doing? I just made myself some hard boiled eggs and silky gingered zucchini soup (yum!). I almost took a bite of a non-compliant food last night without thinking but I stopped just in time! Day 28 halfway gone!!!

    Thanks for the kind words guys. I am so proud of myself for how I handled things yesterday. We stayed in town really late and went shopping at walmart. I was so hungry. My husband was loading up the cart with junk that I "can't" have and I started feeling sorry for myself. I tried to think ofor some thing off plan that I really wanted to eat. I was going to cheat. But then I couldn't think of anything I really wanted except real food, like a hamburger. I truly did not want the junk! I ended up buying some cashews and stopped feeling sorry for myself. The bad feelings just went away when I realized I just wanted good food. Today I am going to try Thai Green Curry salmon from the Defined Dish. Good job guys we are so close to Day 30!

    I have no way to manage my feelings. Instead of stuffing my face with sugar I have to just deal with them and this sucks. I don't even want any certain food in particular, I just want sugar to take the edge off.

    Yay Caroline, that sounds awesome! I finally got sick and tired of feeling sorry for myself yesterday so I dug in and did alot of reading on the whole30 while breastfeeding forum. I realized I am not eating nearly enough. And I don't really need all this fruit (for some reason I was under the impression nursing moms need to keep up their fruit). The fruit is just making me bloated. So my plan today is to make more easy snacks/minimeals. I've got the ingredients for the spicy tuna cakes, and I plan to hard boil some more eggs. I am recommitting to this. I've spent the last week feeling tired and hungry and I'm done with that. My first successful whole 30 was amazing and I want to recapture that magic. I do notice my pants fit better and I tightened my belt a notch. Happy Day 23!

    Doing OK here. I definitely notice I have more energy, or at least I can stay awake past 8 pm. Favorite meals: fried eggs on top of hamburger or homemade sausage patties with sautéed spinach; Brazilian Fish Stew from allrecipes.com with some kind of vegetables on the side; broiled steak or lamb chops with potatoes fried in beef tallow & salad; sweet potato topped with taco meat and red salsa; cabbage sautéed in ghee with chicken and salsa, topped with avocado.

    I made a double batch of sunshine sauce yesterday. Eating it over fresh spinach, Spaghetti squash, and chicken. I am so jealous of my family's dessert plates.

    Is it only Day 20? I feel like I've come so far and yet I have so far to go. I made a bunch of breakfast sausage patties this morning. I just want to veg today after a hectic week but I know I should push myself to prep some more food. I'm thinking of doing Nom Nom Paleo's spicy tuna patties except I am missing some ingredients. How is everyone else doing?

    @Amis Otis, the rule for eggs is as many as you can hold in one hand, which is probably 3. Smoothies are discouraged. You didn't mention your fat source at lunch. I agree that the mass quantities of raw veggies are probably upsetting your tummy. Are you eating alot of nUts? I know fruit and nuts make me bloated. Today was a good day for me. I ate 3 hardboiled eggs for my afternoon mini meal (I am a nursing mama!) We got home late but my mood was steady. Imagine several hangry kids pestering you while you're trying to make dinner and you get the idea. Baby had a cold and didn't sleep last night but I made it through the day ok. So I'd say those are some non-scale victories.
