    I want to quit or cry or both

    I threw my scale in a dumpster yesterday. I feel like my entire whole30 purpose was to get to this moment. The greatest NSV of all time! I am finally free

    Why no weightloss?

    I love this point of view!

    I want to quit or cry or both

    Thank you guys. My headache has mostly subsided today. I did some journaling last night and I realized I have been in a funk because my whole30 is a week away from being finished and I'm sure I haven't lost any weight. My clothes fit the same and my face actually looked rounder in some recent photographs. I know this is not a weight loss program but I came into it hoping to lose weight and start down a path of generally paleo lifestyle free of counting, tracking and obsessing. I've been trying to lose the same 20 pounds for about 5 years now and it is exhausting starting new diets, exercise programs, reading new books, listening to podcast, saying positive affirmations, just to constantly see 162 pounds on the scale year after year. I love to cook and exercise so it seems like the ball should be in my court to reach my goals. I'm not going to quit and I'm going to see this through. I'm going to trust the process and stay present. I was so focused on day 31 that I was missing what was right in front of me....a badass lady on day 24 Thank you to anyone who took the time to read this vent! It was quite therapeutic getting it out.

  6. Something is not working for me but I can't figure it out. I'm on day 23 and I've had a raging headache all week combined with fatigue and some serious emotions! my period ended 3 days ago but I feel like I have really bad PMS. I'm also breaking out. I have tears in my eyes just writing this. I consider myself the queen of positive thinking but this has got me down in the dumps. I know there is no non-compliant thing that will make me feel better but feeling like crap is wearing on me. I'm getting extra sleep, drinking enough water, following the meal template, meditating daily, yoga 4x a week. what do I do?

    Pre/Post-Workout Meal Suggestions?

    New question, same subject: I'm training for a full marathon and I'm getting into some really long runs (3-4 hours long) first thing in the morning. Should I eat a normal meal template or a really large PWO snack? I really want to maximize my energy and efficiency during these runs. I also need fuel suggestion for during these runs as well. Thank you!

    PMS is Sabotaging my Tiger Blood!

    Thank you @SugarcubeOD! I'll increase my meal size and take a nap. I finally kicked snacks (4th meal) so I want to stay with 3 square meals only. It's also really helpful to think that this advice is coming from a cat

    PMS is Sabotaging my Tiger Blood!

    I'm on Day 17 and my PMS has been dragging me down the last 4 days. I'm concerned about how I am going to feel when my period starts tomorrow. These are supposed to be my best days but I am so drained both mentally and physically! Any tips would be much appreciated

    Bullet Proof Coffe During Whole30

    I just made my first cup this morning and it was a game changer! I added 1 tsp ghee and 1 tsp coconut oil with a cup of coffee in the vitamix. SO GOOD! I workout at 6am and I have no problems with coffee before a workout. I'm curious would a cup of this and 1 egg be a good option for a PWO meal and then my normal breakfast after? -Day 9 strong!
