  1. One Good Whole30 choice I made today is:

    Measure yourself in contentment and laughter rather than in inches and pounds.
  2. Shakeologt Beachbody Shakeology ^^.
  3. Transitioning from Keto to W30...

    Honeycrisp... Apples are so good this time of year. There's another member here from a line of highly trained chefs from France. Someone she knows went to a top notch European doctor and they said...."You know, fruits and vegetables didn't get you here." Preventing obesity and disease and food addiction is not about eating more food or swapping back in all of the carbs for fats. I can tell you that fruits and vegetables didn't have a thing to do with my original condition either.
  4. Underwhelmed and frustrated Melissa ^^ answers questions about being underwhelmed and why you should follow through with your Reintro Phase, regardless >> I know many are conducting W30's round after round after round without any breaks and reintro phases. She addresses that, too. R2D12. Round 2 Day 12. Round 10 Day 300. Follow through until 30. Stop and Reintro. Gauge how you feel with your former foods and go from there.
  5. What is the end game or results you're looking for. Are you making plans for your Reintro? If you are.... Throwing the towel in won't solve a thing. Melissa has a new Reintro article. It answers so many questions. You choose, tacking additional days on but whatever you do...follow through with the Reintro. "Thirty days of so much hard work completely wasted, because you’ve learned nothing about how these less healthy foods impact you. Don’t do that. Please. You’ve come this far—take the extra time to really reap the benefits of our carefully crafted reintroduction schedules. Be patient, and take the lessons you’ll learn in the coming days with you for the rest of your life. Rush this process, and you’ll be selling yourself short."
  6. Transitioning from Keto to W30...

    Read ISWF and then FFF. Food Freedom Forever. Yes. There are those who say you can live and stay in ketosis forever. Do you think you can....that is the question. Long-term sustainability. If there are insulin excursions with peanut m&m's and then hop back on the keto trail, bouncing back and forth, off and on - it's a choice to get off the merry-go-round with fear of food and carbs. Here's what Melissa says.
  7. It didn't work for me What would Melissa say? ^^ From what you've shared it is time to reintroduce. You are correct. You shouldn't try to wrangle around with it for 45, 60 or 90 days.
  8. Day 20 and Super Minimal NSVs

    I didn't find it negative. I think your W30 was meticulous, very competent and well thought out. You put alot into it and you want some results. Wishing you a smooth transition from W30 through Reintro.
  9. Day 20 and Super Minimal NSVs "The last word: Sometimes, people don’t think they’re feeling that much better until they start feeling worse again. Like, you’ll get to Day 31 and think, “I feel better but nothing ah-mazing,” but then you start to reintroduce and you’re all “OMG THIS FEELS LIKE CRAP! Is this (tired, foggy, craving, achy, blotchy, bloated, sluggish) REALLY how I used to feel?” Sometimes, you need the comparison for clarity. Just something to think about."
  10. Nervous about reintroducing foods!
  11. One Good Whole30 choice I made today is:

    If I had to choose between thin and fit - I would choose fit every time. Does being thin really make you happy and free. There are people who weigh well over 300 lbs and they're happy and free. "Thin" doesn't come to them as a side effect of being happy and free. Being thin isn't the same as being healthy. Thin people may have a genetic variant that still puts them at risk of T2 or heart disease. Being thin does not guarantee perfect health. It's virtually impossible to judge Happy Awareness and Freedom by looking at the outward signs of being thin, thin, thin. I don't equate being thin with happiness or freedom. The assumption that thin or skinny people are always happier is not always true. Life is too short to find all of your happiness in being thin. It's not easy to find happiness within our innermost being and it's almost impossible to find it elsewhere.

    Happy, Thin and Free. ^ Outwardly thin doesn't always equate to happiness or freedom. Outwardly thin can become a lifelong obsession right up until the last breath. I know older folkaronies who restrict their food, rock that thin thigh gap and they're not free or happy. They're pin thin with thin hair that looks like twigs from a lifetime of dieting, restricting food and tanking their thyroids. Go to the mirror, blow yourself a kiss and say, I love you. You're amazing.
  13. The true essence of the grape is revealed when it's squeezed.
  14. You and I both know that I am ready to go. Blow through those doors like TNT. I've blathered, foamed, talked to myself. Did it help me? Yes. It did. I miss the friendship of everyone who used to be here. They're long gone. Positive young grasshoppers all over this world are cut down in their youth with addiction of every kind. We look to our friends for support. We appreciate them. Friends who rescue us, encourage us and help us fly again. Good, good friends. Goodbyes make me cry. I'll be swinging back in here from time to time, defending my pea patch. I'll be reading the forum like others do.
