mariebolnous posted a topic in Off track/Staying on trackI did the September Whole30 which was quite an eye opener - so many NSV! Especially my sleep quality has drastically improved, my mood was better, and my energy stayed constant. My psoriasis symptoms slightly improved. I lost 6 lbs which I am happy about. I started reintroduction with a glass red wine and because of that I had a second glass and then I binged chocolate. Quite a learning experience! I went back to Whole30 for three days and then did the reintro with only one glass of wine (I learned something here) which went fine. However, my sleep quality is not as good, my energy fluctuates. I am back to Whole30 since and today is the first day I feel “Whole30-good” again. Now I am wondering if I should extend my Whole30 to 90 days to allow my body more time to heal. I have lost another 3 lbs since and psoriasis symptoms seem to improve gradually. I am ok with cravings; I actually believe I am still in to process of getting used of not having foods that make me binge, like cheese. I am reluctant to introduce other foods because I am afraid to lose all the NSV which are such a tremendous improvement of life quality. On the other side, I worry never to reach “food freedom”. Do you have any advice? Does anyone have a similar experience?
Woohoo!!! Last week I started to experience some non-scale victories. It's too soon to really feel that Tiger Blood level of energy, and I might not even get it and that's ok. My insides (GI system) actually feel better; which means I'm not feeling anything at all. I won't know what is my irritant until reintroduction, but I can wait 16 days. So, one thing that happens and I just assumed was due to age is that when I am sitting for a while (like an hour or more), when I get up to move my feet hurt for the first few steps. The discomfort goes away rather quickly, it's just like working out a kink for a moment. However, I realized last Thursday that after sitting in traffic for about an hour, I stepped out of the car and walked to the door like I had been in the car for 5 minutes; no issues! Also, I don't think I'll ever need or want sweetener in my coffee again. It's actually quite tasty with compliant almond milk creamer.
Wendy104 posted a topic in Join the Whole30My eating habits were atrocious. Before the Holidays, I'd decided that I'd start the New Year off by at least cooking a slow-cooker meal a few times a week. Went to Target, saw the Whole 30 Slow Cooker Cookbook. When I got home-excited about my cookbook- I saw the Whole 30 Book on my shelf. Apparently, I'd plan to make changes around this time LAST YEAR! Decided to do it..my Mantra for 2019 is FULLY COMMITTED! Started New Year's Eve (Monday). By day 3, I didn't have to take my nightly Pepcid/Tums! By day 5, I woke up HUNGRY (hadn't done that in decades). By day 6-7, sleeping so good! Not to mention, feeling my body change. More energy. No midday slump. More focused. Clear thinking. Truly, the list goes on and on!! Can't say it's all been easy, but I'm enjoying NUTPODS in my coffee. Love new recipes. Sometimes overwhelmed by the cooking and dishes. But, it's 30 days...or 60. To change habits for LIFE. It gets easier. I'm learning that the occasional "craving" if more of a pity-party. I just do something I love. Read. Write. Cook. Go to be early. My body is Healing. This is a Life-Changer...that is no exaggeration. And not just for me, but my family (and friends are INSPIRED!) Love the food. My husband (a "never eats veggies" guy) told my daughter (16) that I'm "ruining them", cuz they can't go out to eat! Food HERE is too good!! (He modifies it, but still..healthier than before!!) Last year at my last check up, my NP ran the "inflammatory" tests...all of mine were HIGH! My next appointment is March 1. I will complete Day 30 (Round 2) on Feb. 28!! I'm actually excited to see the look on her face when she seems my results. I love the empowerment--knowing that I am dong something about my risks for so many disease processes. OH, and by the way...stupid "little" change for me...I have not bitten my nails in 37 days!! I'm 49 and have bitten my nails ALL MY LIFE! I'm getting manicures!! (nice non-food treat!). I'm down about 10 pounds, finally at 199.4..under 200. Haven't been there in years. But, like so many, the weight loss is not the goal--the feeling of health is! I'm telling everyone about this program and will continue to do this--to inspire others to take control of their health. This. is. not. hard.! LovingMyWhole30Life!
