larryinmaryland posted a topic in Success StoriesFour days ago I introduced myself, a Baby Boomer, on Day 27. Here I am -- and here's how I've done -- and I'm going to keep going. I started out at 185.2 pounds, though, since I had really started almost everything three days before (all I had included was yogurt and Stevia in my coffee), I was probably higher. I know that I was at least 189 two weeks earlier. Today I am at 172.2 pounds. I'm a little disappointed, since I was hoping to be less than 169.6, which I was two years ago this month on Weight Watchers, before I "lost it." But I have to remember that I had been concentrating on weight loss since February at that time. But really, that's still 13 pounds and probably more, in 30 days. My measurements on the first day of my Whole30 were 45" chest, 43 1/4 waist, 40" hips. Now they are 42.5" chest, 40" waist and 39" hips. Not where I want to be, but still very significant. You can see in my photos that the most noticeable difference is that I don't stick out so much in front anymore. I've been calmer. I sleep better, and I'm far more focused. I don't know if it's the discipline of paying attention to what I eat, or it's a placebo effect, but that last change is a big and important difference to me, and I'm going to watch to see how that progresses. Looking at how I did, I think that I had allowed myself too many fruit, and was not as mindful as I could have been about my portions and when I ate, and I threw on the coconut oil and ghee with probably a little too much abandon. But still, I felt good and I had almost no cravings at all, so this is a good and sustainable (and very enjoyable) way to live. I announced in my Introduction that I'm planning to do a "Whole100." I'm going to write about that in a separate blog on the post-Whole30 thread. Here's to my next 70 days --- and I wish everyone else continued success.
