AuntB Posted June 13, 2013 Share Posted June 13, 2013 Hello! Yesterday I finished my whole30. I decided to do the whole30 because I've been eating way too much processed junk. I have celiac disease and found comfort in the gluten free options like cookies, pasta, crackers and so on. I've been a slave to counting calories for a few years and haven't been able to lose any weight. I tried a whole30 once before but I was trying to track my food and it became too much, so I stopped. I blamed it on the food being too expensive, but I was going against the whole30 principals by trying to track everything that went into my mouth. I was also a scale addict. I needed to weigh myself every single day, and then I'd be disappointed when it didn't say what I wanted it to. Very unhealthy. I'm getting married in September and I've weighed more lately that I have in a few years. It was stressing me out. The exact moment I decided to do a whole30, I was in a Red Robin eating a burger that was over 1200 calories alone. There was a crossfit competition on TV and the women all had great bodies! Suddenly I couldn't finish my meal at Red Robin. I knew I needed to stop eating this crap, and by Monday I was doing a whole30. I started at 155.4 and hoped to lose at least 6 lbs because that would put me in the 140's which I haven't seen in well over a year. By day 15, a lot of my pants were loose and I was starting to get compliments that I was looking thinner. Some of my clothes became so big, I can't wear them anymore. My body composition changed A LOT. Today when I woke up, I was afraid to get on the scale. I knew I wasn't going to see a huge number like some of these people do. I stood in front of it for a minute and jumped on before I could change my mind. 151.4 is what I saw today. Exactly 4lbs lost. I'm not going to lie. For a minute I was pissed. All the hard work, all the social events that I passed on great food, and all I lost was 4lbs? but then I remembered that the lowest number I'd seen before this was 152.6 and that was for about one day before it jumped back up to 154 or so. This was a victory. I'd lost 4 lbs in a month without tracking any calories, and barely any exercise. So I've decided that I'm going to a modified whole30 ( I know that's sort of an oxymoron) and add in sausage and bacon. I will make sure they are still nitrate/nitrite free/ organic and all that good stuff, but almost all of it is cured with Sugar. I did my 30 days without it, but I'm ready to have these two things back. Aside from that, I'm going to try to keep everything the same. No sugar, no grains, or dairy, or anything processed. Stick around.. see where I am in another 30 days! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
