FarmGirl12 Posted May 25, 2013 Share Posted May 25, 2013 So April was my first Whole 30 and I was so proud of the results, not to mention that I feel a ton better. The first month absolutely shocked me! It wasn't hard and I've struggled with food my whole life! I've stayed mostly compliant for the last three weeks but its just too easy to get carried away with sugar! I wanted to try it again and lessen my reliance (I swear its really an addiction) on nut butters! I love them! I think it really hampers my fat loss. Also, with the first one I didn't exercise like I normally do. The great thing was that I really did not struggle with staying on the plan. I didn't want nasty food and felt great. I hope that's encouragement for some other young stressed out mother and wife out there! Also, I lost 12 pounds last month. That may not seem like a huge deal but I ran 2 half marathons in the preceding 6 months (so constant training) and was very particular with what I was eating...I did not lose a single pound. Not one!!! I began thinking my hormones were totally messed up (after 3 kids) and went to see my doctor who said it was "normal". So, I decided to take this on to straighten out my 32 year old messed up hormones....and I really feel like my life is changed! So, here we go again! This time with exercise added back in and less almond butter =) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
