LindaLee Posted June 1, 2013 Share Posted June 1, 2013 Today I'm finishing day 7 of my umpteenth attempt. I have felt quite good about it this time, because I determined that this is not a Whole30 for me, it's a WholeLifestyle. I've lived contentedly over the last year without bread, pasta, crackers, cheese, milk, and so forth - it's just the sugar demon that's slammed me down every time, weeks at a time. I like eating THIS way, and I'd like to stick with it, with only an occasional holiday. So I know my recovery is impaired by how bad my sugar addiction was before I started here, but I'm feeling discouraged because my tummy seems to be quite bloated, my inflammation isn't resolving the way it did the first time I tried (almost a year ago), and worst of all is the fatigue! When I went to Crossfit last night and tonight, it was an incredible struggle just to get through the workout. The last 6 days I haven't had a hint of a craving. Today, I really, really wanted something sweet. I managed to defeat it fairly easily, but it just discouraged me to have such a powerful craving. Maybe the discouragement is contributing to that. I have a five mile race in the morning, and I know when I finish what is a big run for me, I'm going to want to celebrate with something junky. And I don't want to do that! Anyway, I know I'm whining, but I'm seeking some encouragement and reassurance that this too shall pass... Thank you - I want to do this, and just need a little extra support - thanks!!
