    I just heard a nutritionist on the radio talking about Winter and how it impacts our systems, depending on where you live...pretty much said our bodies are trying to prepare for winter by trying to store extra weight/fat for the winter months and that we are fighting ourselves when we are trying to "diet" in these months...not sure how accurate it is but maybe part of some of your problems where you feel "bla"......also, check your Vitamin D, I always have a deficiency in these months, that can play a role in your mood as well.

    its tough but luckily I'm not solo on this quest....I have my Husband and 3 other couples doing this and another friend from work so I think that helps...I don't know if I could do this on my own, the guidance is huge for me (one of the couples did this before so they can give me pointers.)
     
    trust me, I found my hand reaching for the pretzels and I couldn't believe how mindless some eating can be, such a bad habit, eat just to eat...I found not making eye contact works too ha! awful...but funny!
     
    I guess over time we'll do better at social situations - but you might be surprised how his Grandparents react to what you are doing, it shows control, dedication and wanting to better yourself. They might just understand and not pressure you into eating, but you know them better than I do
     
    It wasn't easy being out in a social situation, I really felt like I was in panic mode, it truly is amazing how we battle ourselves, only person I was afraid of was me! no one else cares if I eat or not lol...

    Day 8 and a Monday!
     
    I'm feeling pretty good, I do feel less bloated and I am never really hungry nor have I had any cravings (which is VERY odd for me; something new to get used to.)
     
    How did everyone do over the weekend? This was my first weekend doing Whole30 (like most I was assume) and was so nervous to go out with friend to a High School benefit where there'd be pizza, cookies and booze. I got there and really felt out of place, like I was really challenging myself. I didn't like that feeling, almost like a panic attack. I calmed myself down and shackled my arms to my waist so I couldn't reach food to my mouth...kidding of course.
     
    I took a few deep breaths, kept telling myself "you go this" and ended up thinking why I was doing this which led me to relax and just enjoy the company I was with. After explaining to my friends why I wasn't eating pizza, they were all very interested in the program. Believe it or not, I was explaining this to a Navy Seal and he really said "God bless you, I know I couldn't do that." funny a Navy Seal saying that...
     
    It was a tough weekend...but having one under my belt now, knowing what to expect, I think I can concur a few more!!!  
     
    Have a GREAT week guys!

    What's that law again...? oh yeah, Murphy's Law.....remember I said yesterday I was fine and wasn't feeling these emotions most were feeling? Well, woke up and BAM yup moody as all heck..i think I'm a day behind everyone...good thing I'm working from home today as I'm feeling very short tempered...ugh....maybe take a hot shower and lock myself in a room today
     
    So Day 5, I mark off each day in my calendar and cant wait to get over that mid-point hump, more checks than empty day boxes!
     
    How is everyone doing today? I am not craving anything and I have to say I'm not feeling hungry, I feel satisfied with the 3 meals a day...
     
    I didn't think I'd even make it this far, I guess I have more will power than I thought?
     
    Anyways, here's to Day 5 - Rock it guys and keep up the great work!!!!!

    Day 4 guys!!!!!!! 
     
    Headache is back, I feel like my system is craving sugar and having dreams about eating things I shouldn't be....other than that I feel like I've lost a little of the "Holiday Bloat".
     
    I don't feel angry and don't want to "kill all things" so I'm not sure if that's normal, should I be feeling those things on the W30 timeline? should I be concerned I'm not?
     
    My husband, who is doing this with me, made the mistake of weighing himself this morning, was a little concerned of his weight not budging. I told him NOT to weigh himself from now on and I hid the scale I also explained to him this was a time to get healthy, eat healthy, live longer and happier...our bodies will catch up, give it time. To me, I noticed his stomach a little less puffier (trying to put in nice terms lol) and made sure to mention that to him, I think that helped in his discouragement.
     
    So here we go, still on the Whole30 Ride, lets enjoy it and although its "only" day 4, let us be proud of ourselves for making it this far, we can do this for another 26 days and beyond, right?  its exciting...
     
    Happy Whole30, here's to Day 5...Bring it on...

    is it normal to not feel any differently than I did prior to Whole30? I mean I've had a headache off and on for the entire time, but other than that I don't feel any differently.....I mean, I'm sure my coworkers are thankful I'm not moody lol but why don't I feel like the rest of the bunch? I'm not tired, I don't feel moody or depressed or angry...just feel "normal"...anyone else not feeling any changes?
