    WholeMama623 got a reaction from chezjulie in I gained weight on Whole30, What to do now?   
    Just chiming in to say that I didn't lose either during my whole30. I got on the scale and it was exactly the same as it was 30 days before. I checked in with the mods and they said my eating was fine. I am doing a whole100 because 30 days just isn't long enough (for me) to reap the full benefits. I had a doctors appointment a few weeks later, and I was down 4 lbs. Don't be discouraged. I feel better than I have, and my pants are SO baggy! The number on the scale is not the whole picture.

    *after repeatedly explaining my gluten issues and that bread, etc. is no bueno*
     
    Boss: Hey, I made sure there's a cheese pizza since I know you're picky.
     
     
    On an entirely separate occasion:
     
    Boss (to me): What kind of toppings do you want for pizza?
    Me: I can't eat pizza.
    *cue boss has NO idea why I'm declining, I attempt to explain that gluten=flour and pizza is made with flour. She is completely boggled. Like, as if I had just tried to teach her astrophysics.*
     
     
    I just love the implication that "hey, I have a food allergy" has translated into 1. I must be a picky eater and/or 2. I'm a vegetarian. Neither is remotely true.

    .... They are constantly baking sweet potatoes at random intervals to make sure they are supplied for post WOD snack at all times.
    To quote on of my favorite (late) comedians, Mitch Hedberg,
    "It takes forever to cook a baked potato in a conventional oven. Sometimes I just throw one in there, even if I don't want one. Cause by the time it's done, who knows?"
    (Its much funnier by his delivery.)

    they are on farmers market at Saturday morning instead of sleeping
    they are able to buy and carry 20 pounds of organic beef on their own back across whole city
    they spend whole Sunday cooking, preparing and freezing
    they are only people who never touch free sweets at work
    they are angry if they see paleo pancakes labeled as "Whole30 approved" on Pinterest
