I’m on day 21 on my whole 30 and with 1 week left, I’m starting to think I failed/going to fail it (in a sense). I will succeed in the way that I wanted to succeed the most, I wanted to figure out the stem of my stomachaches and headaches and I haven’t gotten either since I started. However, I was also hoping to gain control of my food and sugar cravings but they haven’t lessedned at all and I think it’s my own fault. I snacked on fruit the entire program because my meals weren’t filling enough due to not liking eggs and having limited time to make meals (I work 55 hours a week). If i never lost any sugar cravings at all during my program, did I fail? Is there any way to still succeed and lose the cravings?
HeatherSoleil posted a topic in Food, Drink and CondimentsHi there, I'm on day 25 of my first-ever Whole30. Hooray! I feel great. I don't crave my (sweet) treats like I thought I would, don't crave the gluten-free hot cereal, except for the fact it's easy, and am proud of myself for upping the vegetable consumption. The *only* thing that concerns me is that I have thought about my celebratory glass of red wine all month. Every day. I want that glass. I'm an athlete and am a very light drinker. Over the past few years, one drink a week, maybe. Sometimes every few weeks. Sometimes if there's more social events happening, more than one in a week. I can limit myself to one, but it takes mental effort. Because........... I come from a family of alcoholics. Both sides of my family, including my father. And, in my 20s, I flirted with it. I started drinking heavily to self-medicate. Fortunately, I got my s**t together. I'm 47 now. That's why, I think, I have to really use my willpower to stop at one. What concerns me now is that I'm thinking about this darned glass of wine so much. I worry this is the genetic predisposition rearing its head, and wondering if it's a sign I should just give up alcohol completely. Another thing. In the months before I started W30, I was drinking a little more than usual. Like one a few times a week instead of one whenever. Almost always due to work stress, not because of a wedding or birthday party. I love W30 for helping to bring this and other food issues to light. And for many other reasons that I won't babble on about right now. If anyone has experienced something similar with alcohol, I would love some perspective. Thank you,
